    Overall, the book was good but I hope the main plot jumps back to the Joker or something different from just a regular money heist. Read Full Review

    If this book would maintain its price point, Id keep it on my pull-list until Daniels story is over. I dont like leaving something mid-story, especially when I dont hate it. But lets be honest here…the only necessary Batman books to be reading right now are Batman, Batman & Robin and Batman Incorporated once it comes back in a couple of months. Tony Daniels Detective Comics is entertaining, but its not essential reading. In a world where comic book shops across the world have an entire row of Bat-books to choose from, Detective Comics just isnt worth the price right now. Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Mar 7, 2012

    Detective Comics #7 represents a mediocre and, thus, disappointing next step for the series. This second arc is beginning to take on something of a make-it-up-as-we-go feeling to it, and, as a result, the drama remains low and the developments seem inconsequential. If Daniel could have cultivated some of the mystery in this book that even his Dollmaker arc possessed, the issue would have been greatly improved. Oh well, at least it's got a cool cover.

    At least the last issue had that awful “blood bath” line that made me laugh. Read Full Review

    That was the real problem with this issue, things just happen for god knows what reason at all. There's no logic to what's happening, no lead up, they just happen. Take for example Daniel's first story, where we found out Black Mask was Jeremiah Arkham. Prior to the reveal, there was an issue where Arkham mentioned carrying around a revolver with rubber bullets. Dick later gets shot by Black Mask by a revolver, pulls out the slugs to find rubber bullets. Now, it's not the mostclever hint, but it was a hint none the least, and you could trace those clues to figure out the ID prior the the last issue. Here... shit just happens. Read Full Review
