    The more of these issues that mount up, the more I wish it was a trade paperback immediately. But as a fan of the serial novel style, you can see why Ellis keeps cliff hanging the story! Get in while you can as this is a refreshing ride on a new Batman train. Read Full Review

    Ellis weaves an interesting comic showcasing Batman and Alfred's strategies to find their target. The panel of the comic was a page of four panels with Batman slowly walking down the street in broad daylight. This comic clearly picked the kind of story it wanted to be and performed well.

    Throughout the maxi-series, Ellis and Hitch have been able to capture the life of the Dark Knight well, along with his relationship with his faithful butler, and this issue doesn't change that, hitting the same heights as previous issues. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 9, 2020

    Is it the fault of the book, or the fault of our culture which tends to think big tanks are cool and a hero using force on a bad guy we assume to be bad as just? The fact that I'm pondering these things may actually be a sign the imagery is a good thing to mull over in our entertainment while the world continues to protest and find justice. In that respect, this is a deeply powerful issue, but likely not in the way the creators intended. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 10, 2020

    Bryan Hitch delivers some great art. One of the best parts of the art in this issue is that most of the scenes are character based and the details in the interactions between Bruce and Alfred are beautiful. I also really enjoyed the Batmobile designs as well. Read Full Review

    While there's some verbose energy to the characterization, the ill-timed imagery of The Batman's Grave #7 means this issue will probably read better later in trade. Read Full Review
