"Who are the Secret Six?" part three! Is Superman the newest member of the Batman Who Laughs' Secret Six? It certainly looks that way, and Batman may be powerless to stop the Man of Steel and his own demented doppelgänger.

    Word Of The Nerd - Jordan Claes Oct 23, 2019

    Nothing makes me happier than to see Joshua Williamson penning a great Batman story. I've loved the guy since I first discovered his seminal seriesNailbiter and have been a fan ever since. Few writers know how to captivate audiences, to instill in them a true sense of excitement and fear. This is where Joshua Williamson shines. Batman/Superman #3 is drawing on the creative inspiration of Scott Snyder and brings his characters to an entirely different level. Like Loeb and Sale or Snyder and Capullo before them, Willamson and Marquez are truly the new dynamic duo to watch out for in the DCU. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 23, 2019

    This is an exciting third issue that continues to ramp up the stakes while giving both the title characters heroic moments as well as moments to reveal their humanity. It's good character drama mixed with great action in one of the prettiest superhero books on the stands today. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Jason A. Fleece Oct 29, 2019

    Batman/Superman #3 is not a deep comic. It doesnt say anything new about the characters or reinvent the superhero genre. What it is, though, is a fun ride, with spectacle galore and a story thats essential to the big metastory of the DC Universe right now. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Tyson Yurai Nov 1, 2019

    Batman/Superman is an intriguing series so far. Though solicitations have spoiled the mystery, the journey of getting to the end is what matters as TBMWL is on a collision course with The Legion of Doom. Marquezs art is amazing and Joshua Williamson pens a good script, but knowing TBMWL will always win because he can outsmart everyone takes a bit of the drama away. The series is worth continuing, but given the overpowered villain, who knows for how long? Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Travis Tucker Oct 23, 2019

    This series is about to turn up to eleven. I have no doubt in my mind that Williamson is going to make fans feel what's about to happen. It's been slow so far and we have been complacent. It's time to be jarred. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Oct 23, 2019

    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue and I am so glad I got into the series. The story telling is amazing and with an art style that also really brings the story to life. I highly recommend if you haven't already, pick up this series and especially this issue. I know with the current Year of the Villain run there are a lot of side stories coming out and it can be a headache trying to keep up with them all but if you only want to dive into a few of the stories, do yourself a favor and make sure that this is one of them!

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 27, 2019

    Batman/Superman #3 is another strong chapter in the event that is building around Batman Who Laughs plot for the entire Multiverse. Reveals being spoiled aside, Joshua Williamson does a great job developing the latest Infected heroes that have joined Batman Who Laughs' Secret Six. How Batman and Superman respond to all that takes place has created greater interest into the endgame of this storyline. It's just to bad continuity issues hinder the full potential of Batman/Superman #3. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Oct 23, 2019

    When all is said and done Batman/Superman #3continues to deliver a solid story. Though the plot feels like it might be starting to lose itself it still holds a lot of potential. Given what this creative team has already shown it can do I have little doubt they can continue to deliver a strong story. They just have to avoid letting Batman's detective work run away from them.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 23, 2019

    Things are picking up a bit, but if you already know the Secret Six roster, you are probably getting as impatient as me waiting to get to the Fireworks factory.  The cliffhanger does point this book in an even bigger direction, but we have a bit of time until that goes down and I want to enjoy the journey as well as the destination.  David Marquez's art looks great, now if Joshua Williamson could pick up the pace a bit, we could have something special here.  Let's hope we get there soon.

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Oct 23, 2019

    With plenty of comics on stands today, I don't recommend that you pick up this book. If you are still interested, though, I recommend that you wait and see if the reviews get more positive before you buy. The art is definitely good, but, as far as I'm concerned, the writing isn't worth the money. Read Full Review
