    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Dec 2, 2021

    Batman: The Detective #6 delivers in every sense. Equilibrium has proven to be a brand new nemesis for the Dark Knight that lives up to the thrill levels we've come to expect from a member of one of the greatest rogues' galleries in all of fiction. Any story that can give us a villain worthy of the World's Greatest Detective will automatically plant itself very highly on my “Must read” list. When you also get incredible art, perfectly delineated characters, and enough action to make Holly wood jealous, the final result is a series I'd give to any new reader and say, “Here… check this out!” Read Full Review

    The final chapter of this series nicely wraps up this tale and ends in a tragic, yet heartwarming manner. Read Full Review

    Unlike all the other future Batman stories where Batman seems to be more bitter, more brutal, and more alone, it feels like Bruce Wayne is coming out of this one wiser and with a better view of what it takes to make a difference. That's the Tom Taylor effect " he can take old tropes and make them feel completely fresh. Read Full Review

    The second conflict deals with the imprisonment of Squire's mom who was a smuggler caught when she was saving a life. Bruce is able to use his connections to allow her early release. By highlighting the strength of character in both Batman and Bruce Wayne, Taylor elevated this issue and really shows us the hero's heart. This is an excellent issue really bringing together all the elements of this series into a taut finale. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - James Remolde Dec 1, 2021

    This is an interesting story with a very real-world message. Good or bad, all of our actions have consequences, and the sooner we realize that the better. The story is fantastic, thought-provoking, and action-packed with high stakes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 30, 2021

    Batman: The Detective #6 ends this near-feature European Vacation with a little backstory on Squire, the reveal of Equilibrium's big plan, and a final conflict that ends with a phone call. Equilibrium has the potential to be one of Batman's better, crazier entries in his rogue's gallery, but this story won't be remembered for much else. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Dec 1, 2021

    Batman: The Detective #6 is a fitting end to a series that never quite lived up to its potential. There's much to like, but it suffers from shallow thinking, poor planning, and a self-sabotaged climax. If you've been trade-waiting this book, I suggest you find it at your local library before investing the money. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Chase Magnett Dec 1, 2021

    At its end Batman: The Detective threatens to interrogate some of the troubling premises beneath Batman's law-and-order modus operandi; it never quite goes there but gets close enough to give readers something to chew on. Read Full Review
