    What makes this work so well is that we can see the glimmer of Batman emerging through Bruce's training, but he's not there yet. This Bruce is much more flawed, much more vulnerable than we usually see him, and that makes this one of the most compelling Bat-stories in a while. Read Full Review

    This penultimate issue is a pulse-pounding, sweat-inducing, beautifully rendered thrill ride. If it doesn't leave you gasping you've got no heart. Read Full Review

    It was a gamble to focus on Bruce Wayne's year's training to be Batman, but it has paid off. The second to last issue, Batman: The Knight #9, shows Bruce Wayne is very close to becoming Batman. Much like Batman, the creators have earned an ending that feels genuine and true to the characters, be it a new skillset or a revelation that has made Bruce closer to becoming the greatest hero to ever live.

    The essence and creativity of rewriting continuity in a genuine way to make the pieces fit together logically are very impressive by Zdarsky. Readers will be enthralled from start to finish. I highly recommend picking up Batman: The Knight #9, as well as grabbing up as many back issues as you can to get caught up. Its definitely one of the best Batman titles on the market today and is certainly the best Batman book this week! Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken Sep 20, 2022

    Batman: The Knight #9 delivers a new spin on the first time Bruce and Ra's al Ghul met, moving it back to before he even became Batman. Some of the changes offer a refreshing new modernization to the fateful encounter, while others feel unnecessary or even detrimental to the dynamic it's meant to be establishing. It's no small task to try and rewrite such a famous Batman story, fitting it into a new Batman origin no less, and Zdarsky responds to the challenge with mixed results. Read Full Review
