    Overall, another four strong stories, although two of them suffer a bit by the strictures of the format. Read Full Review

    Overall though, another stellar issue of one of the most thoroughly entertaining Bat-books out there. Read Full Review

    I cannot express how sad I am that this series is ending in two issues. I think that seeing more anthology series like this (remember Wednesday Comics? I miss Wednesday Comics) for the grater DCU would be absolutely incredible, and a way to start trying out new series to combat the bat-fatigue a lot of fans are feeling right now. Read Full Review

    Batman: Urban Legends #21 is one and a half stories away from being a perfect issue. For that reason as I sit here judging other people's hard work, I give it an 8 out of 10. Bravo to some, keep trying to others. I'm looking forward to the next issue… it has a lot to live up to. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 9, 2022

    Once again, the mix of stories feels pretty vast. Gotham City is a big and menacing place with lots of corners that are being explored under many covers every month for DC. Urban Legends manages one of the most diverse looks at the city in a single title. Theres a very natural flow of action from the Batman story at the beginning to the Batman story at the end. Not all of it is perfect, but its quite a journey from start to finish. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Daniel Goldberg Nov 9, 2022

    The book remains uneven, but the peaks are higher here than in many previous issues. The Montoya-Batwoman story succeeds, and other than the "Arkham Academy story, the others have strengths as well. The overall quality of the artwork is not topline; however the linework is muddy, and the Golden Age overtones sometimes jar. Read Full Review
