    Overall, the two main stories were excellent enough to make this one of the best issues of the series. Read Full Review

    Batman: Urban Legends #10 continues to be quite the playground for all things Batman-related. Each story's different but continues to weave a thread of connection among the Bat-Family. I appreciate this title so much as there's a lot to explore with each character. This book is as needed as The Brave and the Bold was when I was a child! Read Full Review

    Batman: Urban Legends #10 is a great example of why the best version of the Batman Family is when they are united. The stories starring Batman, Red Robin, and Nightwing solidify this fact. In the process we get a lot of great character work that uses all the developments in their lives that makes this a can't miss comic book for Batman fans. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 14, 2021

    Batman Urban Legends #10 is a mixed bag of good and bad, but that's pretty much par for the course when it comes to this title.  Meghan Fitzmartin continues her Tim Drake story and Tini Howard debuts with a Nightwing holiday tale.  Thow in the surprising good Tweedledum story and some good art, and I can recommend this, even if it is to avoid looking like a Scrooge during the holiday season.

    The Tim story had some subtle touches in it that I really think made it work. Having Batman, Tim's father figure, accept him without any hesitation is not only exactly what Batman should and would do, it's also what so, so many LGBT kids want. The leading cause of suicide among LGBT teens and young adults is being rejected by their parents for their sexuality or gender identity. I know some people here bristle at that acceptance as something degenerate, but they can go fuck themselves. Another thing, Batman treating the people of Gotham with compassion is what we should want from the character. He's a hero, he can be a dark one, but what's the solution there? Beat the citizens into compliance? Please.

    Tim's story was okay, Batman and Dick did seem a little out of character where Batman just hugs the citizens or Dick being angry at his brother coming to him for advice. but it also had some good details like Dick telling Tim

    " I know you have gotten comfortable going back to being Robin while Damian is out of Town. But he's Earned That name now. and you ... you deserve your own future."

    this was need for Tim, he needs a new identity even in this issue being robin makes him look small and the art only helps that statement. and Damian is having amazing arc with Robin shows that let Damian be Robin he has to move on. so Tims story gets 6/10

    Nightwing's story was okay to, the thing was it was really expected, more

    Sadly, Tim's story was medicare at best.
    Both Nightwing and Batman were out of character in the story and read more like alternate versions of themselves, with Batman hugging random Gothamites and Nightwing scolding Tim for coming to him when he needs advice.
    The bright side of the story was hinting that Tim is about to move on from being Robin, but that was more or less the only part of the story that really made sense.
    Overall, it was just disappointing. Instead of getting a story of Tim coming out to his family, hanging with Bernard, talking with Steph, we got a story with OOC Batman and Nightwing, no Steph, no real story, with Tim's new relationship sidelined.

    The other stories were better, and Nightwing's st more

    Hoping the next issue can revitalize the series, it’s really taken a turn for the worse and it’s disheartening to see

    Tim Drake - 6.5/10, this issue was quite bland but it had some heart

    Tweedle Dee & Dum - 5.5/10, boring

    Azrael - 9/10, amazing

    Nightwing - 3/10, Tini Howard can't write, I couldn't even get through this one

    Its a shame, this series seemed so promising when it started, but each issue has just sunk lower and lower

    Tim's story was terrible both Batman and Nightwing were out of character, there was no solid plot and DC doesn't know what to do with Tim... 2/10

    T&T was ok-ish, nothing terrible, but by tomorrow I'll forget everything I read in it 5/10

    Azrael was pretty damn good, super solid writing by Dan Watters and interesting art by Nikola Cizmesija 8/10

    Nightwing was not bad too, Tini Howard has a good voice for nightwing and Christian Duce's art has a quality standart 7/10

    Most of the stories are mediocre but the Tim Drake one is just cringey on all levels. Never mind that Tim being bi still sounds like fanfic and makes zero sense, the way Batman acted, the way the characters talked, the horrendous art, all was just so awful on a level a comic company like DC shouldn't ever produce. Seriously, it was just horrible.

    More ageist anti-Batman hypocrisy in "A Carol of Bats" by Meghan Fitzmartin, whose career has mostly been in supernatural and horror. She is only interested in Tim as label teenager, not in his values in fighting crime. In fact, the very concept of fighting crime itself is viewed as passe and disgusting backwards thinking. So why exactly are her characters dressing up in costumes? But DC's Gotham Books really do NOT like Batman, and so they need to have outlets to dig on him and the "terrible" concept that "Crime Does Not Pay." And people give DC Comics ***MONEY*** for Batman comics, so Meghan and so many of the other anti-Batman writers get a job, getting paid to diss the main character. In this case, by pretending to examine how "broken more
