    This was the launch of a strong conceptual story arc with great visuals. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Guillem March's Neil-Adams-meets-Paul-Pope-meets-Goseki-Kojima art, on the other hand, is absolutely brilliant. I've been enthralled by his work since first seeing it on the covers of Gotham City Sirens, and as his work has bled into other titles, I've grown even more enthusiastic about his incredible character designs, psychedelic palette, and East meets West sensibilities. Guillem March is an artistic dynamo whose work is well worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - John Barringer Mar 17, 2011

    The momentum Tony Daniel has been building for the Batman title was at a maximum with Batman #707 (I said it was my favorite Tony Daniel written issue yet) [Link] but any fears of this crossover filler issue squashing that momentum is, at least for me, a non factor. David Hines and Guillem March deliver an exciting story that is more than worthy of following up with. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mar 17, 2011

    The only nitpick I really have is that this story picks up in a completely different series (Red Robin). Typically, I hate that, especially when I don't normally pick up the series a story bleeds into. But Batman #708 was enjoyable enough where I'm considering dropping the fundage on Red Robin #22 when it releases to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 16, 2011

    Not getting a team-up between Daniel and Clarke was reason enough for disappointment, but this issue felt lifeless in the story department. There's nothing here that entices me to pick up issues of "Red Robin" and "Gotham City Sirens" to find out what happens next, much less next month's issue of "Batman." Fans of March's art will want to check this comic out, but otherwise I'm all right with waiting until May for my next issue of "Batman." Read Full Review
