Damian Wayne has been bruised and beaten to a pulp... but nothing before will compare to his latest confrontation with the horde of villains in this issue. When pitted against Professor Pyg, DC villain's month darling Jakanapes and other baddies, how will Damian survive - especially when he finds a certain clown waiting for him at the finish line?

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Jan 4, 2014

    I really like where this utterly crazy story is going, and more than a little bummed that there's only one issue left of this tale. Read Full Review

    Kubert is three for three in this miniseries. Each book has been a fine read and would make fine primers for many of todays working artists (including some of the folks on other Bat titles). Unless the ending is a bomb, this will be a classic story line in Bat-lore. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - C Reyes Jan 1, 2014

    As action packed and moderately fast paced as this issue was, it had just as much character development. Andy Kubert is truly coming on his own as a writer right in front of us. There's only one thing that worries yours truly about this saga and it's the fact that the further in we get into the story, there's an extreme almost rushed feeling that's translated into the art. And while it is customary to give the benefit of the doubt to someone who does not both write and draw often, it feels like Mr. Kubert might be coming at a crossroads where he will need to choose to either tell one hell of a story, or draw one hell of a book. No matter what it turns out to be, rest assured that it'll be one for the history books. Read Full Review

    This is truly a fantastic issue, an amazing concept that I absolutely love. This is definitely a series for any Bat-fan anywhere. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Dec 31, 2013

    This is still a title well worth looking into, one that tells an interesting story and leaves off on a potentially amazing reveal. The art is truly the reason for the season, however, and Kuberts art is absolutely worth looking into and really takes off in this issue. I feel like this was the issue that made me truly believe this concept was a good one and if the next issue remains high quality, this will go down as a great, self-contained tale. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 4, 2014

    We're almost at the end of this mini, and I don't know how I feel about it.  Where the story started out strong, it keeps taking left turns into weirdness, and with only one issue left I doubt we'll get all the answers to all the questions this issue makes us ask.  Now this is totally fresh, and has the reins to do whatever it wants, and it is fun, but man is it out there.  Go check it out.

    Kubert is building the plot to lead to a big explosion in the last issue and the pace is constantly fast and the ending left me wanting more. There have been some interesting choices with the plot that I'm not a fan of, but the great artwork and the direction the story is going in is enough that I would recommend this for any Batman fan to pick up.

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jan 3, 2014

    It's a perfectly readable issue, but like past ones it remains plagued by oddities like the one-dimensional Catholic priest who looks a lot like Jim Gordon and has a manipulative compulsion regarding the new Batman. "Damian: Son of Batman" #3 is a fine example of Kubert's talent as an artist, but it's decidedly mediocre as a story. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - David Staniusz Jan 1, 2014

    Damian Son of Batman is puttering to the finish line, with next issue being the end, it does not seem like a dramatic turn around is in order. Read Full Review

    Herotaku - Jamal Melancon Dec 31, 2013

    If Kubert had just condensed his story's scope, a lot more could have been salvaged from this short tale that's nearing its end. Unnecessary and confusing characters and plot developments hold back from what could be a truly touching story with awesome art. Read Full Review

     This series is lucky it has some fantastic art, because there is absolutely nothing salvageable from the story. This issue, and let's be honest, series as a whole, is just an pretty looking mess.  Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Dec 31, 2013

    I really don't recommend this. Unless you're a glutton for punishment and desire to see what sort of insanity Andy Kubert could possibly come up with next, I suggest you skip this one. The only thing that's worth saving about all of this is the artwork, which is quite beautiful and perfectly colored. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 2, 2014

    The third installment of Andy Kubert's bizarre Damian Wayne story trudges toward the end by adding even more to an already convoluted plot. But it's hard to look away because the the art is so good! Read Full Review
