    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 28, 2023

    This first issue is a fast-paced, often funny read that does a great job with setting up its concept and core main characters, although we have yet to see how it'll expand into the main DCU. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 1, 2023

    With the initial mix-up taken care of, the series has a chance to move forward. It would have been a bit more interesting to deliver a little more detail on the RWBY end of the crossover, but the monster hunters ARE the guests on the page in a DC comic book, so it makes sense that Batman would get the center of the page in the first issue. Still--its not like theres any scarcity of Batman in DC comics. It would be nice if he could share the page more evenly. Read Full Review

    Inviting for new readers while not disparaging those who already know the basic premise of either franchise, this debut is entertaining for readers new and old. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Feb 28, 2023

    As the issue wraps, we are left with a moment to allow the larger threat that the monsters in Gotham represent to sink in. The closing proclamation by Ruby further drives home the melodramatic energy that superhero comics revel in. Read Full Review

    Get Your Comic On - James Lister Feb 28, 2023

    DC/RWBY #1 is a fun and playful start to a story that has a lot of potential. Batman's world collides perfectly with the wonders of RWBY in this first issue, and in the same breath the visual aesthetic that makes RWBY stand out is very well adapted to suit the DC universe. Read Full Review
