Batman joins forces with a new hero who's as dangerous as she is beautiful. When members of a secret order turn up dead and tortured in Gotham City's Chinatown district, I-Ching informs Batman that he fears an ancient relic is the target. Batman connects this case to that of a missing satellite architect. With few clues to go by and the stakes getting higher, Batman races to locate the surviving members of the order before it's too late.

    I really enjoyed this one. Out of a raft of good DC books, Batman by Tony Daniel is really standing out. Go pick it up, whether you're following the series or not. Even though this is part two of the arc, it's good for non-experts. Read Full Review

    Perhaps I have nothing to worry about though, and Tony Daniel has certainly earned the benefit of the doubt. This was still a really fun read and I'm anxious to see the Beholder arc unfold. Only time will tell. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Dec 21, 2010

    Batman #705 was another solid issue by Tony Daniel. I am still not convinced that Batman will continue to stay on my pull list after this arc, but Daniel has laid out a nice foundation for his second run on this title to be a fun one. The story with Sensei and his search for the Mask of the Beholder is an interesting one. I will be interested to see how the Riddler ties into this story of the Mask of the Beholder. If you are looking for a fun straightforward Batman tale than Batman #705, as well as the previous issue, are comics that you should get. For those looking for something more complex, I would recommend getting either Batman, Inc. or Detective Comics. The straightforward nature of the story in Batman may turn off those readers that are looking for more substance. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 16, 2010

    "Batman" isn't getting as much attention as some of the other, newer books in the Bat-stable, and that's a pity. "Batman" continues to be a solid, entertaining book thanks to Tony Daniel. At the end of the day, this book is just plain fun, and that's all I'm asking for here. Read Full Review

    Daniel's art is mostly pleasing as well. His style is a bit more restrained and realistic than his recent collaborations with Morrison. I would like to see Daniel adjust his inking style a bit, with less feathery lines and more substantial blacks. Though not without its quirks, Daniel's Batman is proving it has the quality to stand up to the other high profile books in the Batman line these days. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 20, 2010

    I really can't fault Tony Daniel when he is clearly putting forth a huge amount of effort for this comic and is showcasing a great amount of talent as both a writer and an artist. Technically, this is a really sound comic. The problem is that, creatively, he is missing the mark. Daniel just doesn't seem to be meant for writing or drawing Dick Grayson as Batman. If you turn off your brain and pretend that this is actually Bruce Wayne, you'll probably love this comic. If not, you'll only love the totally awesome last page. Read Full Review
