    If it's not already established, I love this book. From its mythological atmosphere, to its impactful artwork, to its simple but beautiful theme. There is nothing about this story I don't like, and I recommend it to literally every Batman fan, young or old. Read Full Review

    It's hard to remember a book that's more frustrating than this one. There are so many moments in this book that seem to show the potential for this story to be great. But when the moments are put together, readers get a story that never quite falls together. With this and "Metamorpho," it's become obvious that it's time for me to give up on Neil Gaiman's comics work. Wake me up when he gets paid to really spend time on a comics story. Read Full Review
