    BATMAN: THE KNIGHT #4 continues to summarize the early years between Bruce's parents' death and his first year as BATMAN in a masterful way. This depiction of the character is logical and does a fantastic job of weaving together so many of these early stories and narrative nuggets heard throughout the years into one creative gem.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Apr 19, 2022

    Carmine Di Giandomenico delivers some beautiful art throughout the story. From the weather elements to the brutally of the fights, there is a wonderful, tangible element to the art that captures the emotion of the scenes. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Apr 19, 2022

    Batman: The Knight #4 is another good issue in a fascinating exploration of Bruce Wayne prior to becoming the greatest detective, and some might say fighter, in all of comics. Even more importantly, with Zdarsky taking over full time on the main series it's even more exciting to read Batman: The Knight knowing everything is important. Read Full Review

    I wish it hadn't taken the entire first act, but this series finally has my attention. I'm now officially interested to see what comes next, and how this tale of Batman's past will affect his modern-day adventures. Read Full Review

    The stereotypes in this book are more than a little bit troubling, but it features some stellar art. That's not enough to balance it, but it's fun to look at. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken Apr 23, 2022

    What's here is fun and exciting, but feels like a step down from the previous issues due to its lack of novelty. The characters continue to be well written and the art shines in both big action scenes and conveying the subtlety of characters' emotions. I'm invested in seeing where Bruce's journey will take him next. However I hope that this doesn't become just an extended version of the same globetrotting training montage we've already seen so many times before. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 19, 2022

    Batman: The Knight #4 continues Bruce Wayne's quest to become Batman in an issue that, unfortunately, was kind of boring.  It does end with a cool cliffhanger, but you need more than that when the most important question going into this book is whether or not it is necessary.  I am a Chip Zdarsky fan, but I am slowly losing interest in this book.  Hopefully, the next issue will get me as excited as I was after the first two issues.
