A "GOTHTOPIA" tie-in! Luke Fox has never been happier in his life. He's tearing up Gotham City as its protector, and his father, Lucius, couldn't be prouder of him. How did THAT happen?

    This tie-in to Gothtopia shows just how wrong things can go when there is no order. Luke's world has been turned upside down and he has no way of knowing what's wrong. Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti really started something that puts some fear into the reality that anyone in this story can be in danger. Finding out what happened and who is behind this makes it all the more urgent that they solve because Luke really has never been this vulnerable before. Though in the grand scheme things still seem a bit vague, I can say you should still follow this book and see how the plot unfolds. Read Full Review

    The art is a bit hit or miss, though the hits are pretty impressive. The first page features some very clever play on pictures within pictures and panels within panels, and the juxtaposition of reality and hallucinations is deftly handled. Expressions aren't as artfully rendered and there are a few areas where details are scarce, but overall, it's well-crafted comic. Read Full Review

    It may seem that I didn't like Batwing #27, but that's not true.  However, as a Batwing fan I was disappointed.  The fun the book has been dishing out each month is nowhere to be found and that's a shame as is the weak art.  Gothtopia is an interesting premise and a mystery I will continue reading, I just want my Batwing back.

    I've praised this run on Batwingfor just being action packed fun every month... Unfortunately, that's what this story lacked this time around. Gothtopia sets up an interesting premise, but it goes underutilized in this issue, which s the most unfortunate part of the issue, as it could have been really fun. Mix that with the fill in art, and you've got yourself an okay issue overall. Not bad, but the series has, and can do better. Read Full Review
