    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 13, 2010

    This issue has a lot going for it and definitely has the makings of a Must Read storyespecially in terms of how well Fabian Nicieza handles the relationships between the Batfamily, particularly the strong bond that is developing between Damian and Dick. There are a few missteps with the writing, but the biggest issue is the art by Cliff Richards's that has very strong moments, but ultimately falls a bit flat. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Sep 13, 2010

    I’m going to go with a B+ for this issue and that’s completely due to the personal touches that Fabian Nicieza put in to this story. This is exactly what I needed from one of the Batman books right now and it’s served up with great dialogue. Read Full Review

    For those still wondering if this issue is worth your cash, Fabian Nicieza's decent script is brought to life by Cliff Richards' beautiful art. While I did have some issues with some of the artwork (i.e. missing pupils in characters, Gotham looking like Times Square, etc.), for the most part, Richards' art is a welcome change from Tony Daniel's more basic style, and well worth the price of the book.

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 9, 2010

    There are some nice moments between Dick and Damian (especially towards the end of the story), but nothing that would make anyone other than hardcore Bat-fans pick this issue up. Nice cover, though. For fans. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Sep 12, 2010

    This issue seemed poised for deep revelations, exciting subplots, and action aplenty, but it fell short in all areas. It is a nice little humanitarian piece, of sorts, that allows Dick Grayson to try to teach Damian Wayne a lesson on right and wrong, but it turns out to be an average comic. It does, however, do a good job of keeping the seat warm until all of the Batbooks are synched up for their next step forward. Read Full Review
