    Sorrentino delivers some beautiful art in this issue. The characters are dynamic and the style is visually stunning. Read Full Review

    Buy this comic. Batman: The Imposter #2 continues to deliver one of the grittiest and most realistic interpretations of everyone's favorite Dark Knight to ever grace the comics page. Many fans still quote or revere classics like Batman: Year One, or the more recent Earth One tales, and rightly so. In my humble opinion this series will be spoken about with the same levels of respect as those other stories, and if the first two issues are anything to go by, the comparisons and admiration will be fully deserved.

    This second of a three-issue event is going to be worthy of some space on your bookshelf. I love the tweaking of the story. The lenses of both Detective Wong as well as Dr. Leslie Thompkins, provide a new view of Gotham's vigilante hero. They are two strong female protagonists trying to heal their city in their own way!

    AIPT - Dan Spinelli Nov 9, 2021

    The first issue of this three-part DC Black Label miniseries failed to take full advantage of its intriguing, realistic premise. That changes in a big way this issue as Bruce Wayne gets closer to a detective who is well-positioned to understand what makes him tick. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Nov 9, 2021

    To me it feels like the book is trying to be two things at once (a character study and a detective adventure), but Tomlin hasn't quite managed to connect these two things yet. The creative team also packs a lot into this issue, which has its pros and cons. But on the whole this book is pretty awesome. The story is intriguing, I'm invested in each character, and the art is absolutely great. Recommended! Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed Batman: The Imposter #2. I will honestly say that the reason that I was interested in this series was because of Andrea Sorrentino's artwork. I've made a point to follow his work since first noticing him with DC's I Vampire. That was in 2011 and I haven't been disappointed with his work yet. The unexpected part was how much I've enjoyed Mattson Tomlin's story. I can't wait to see how they top themselves with Batman: The Imposter #3. Read Full Review

    This series continues to be brilliantly drawn and tightly plotted, but there's just one problem"this isn't Batman. At least not any version of Batman we know. Read Full Review

    While I continue to have some major concerns about the diagnosis salad (I'm starting to question if Tomlin fully understands the conditions he tosses around) that is part of the Dr. Thompkins' internal monologue about Bruce Wayne"and I really don't buy the presentation of how Alfred would handle young Bruce"Batman: The Imposter #2 continues to be a really interesting exercise in realistically approaching the iconic character and his story.
