    Wow. Detective Comics #1024 really delivers. Complex villains, kick-ass action, fantastic dialogue, and astonishing art. Yes, this issue has it all. I never saw that ending coming, nor did I ever expect to see Lincoln March again… or Harvey Dent in the New 52 Bat-armor! This Two-Face story has been the character's best in years, and has proven to be a “Joker War” prelude that the main event will have a hard time matching. Read Full Review

    It should be no surprise that the creative team led by Peter J. Tomasi and Brad Walker deliver a 5/5 review score. Not only am I personally entertained by the musical references, this take on Batman is absolutely perfect. And, it's just another example in Tomasi's run on Detective Comics. Brad Walker isn't always paired with Tomasi on this title, but Detective Comics #1024 reminds the reader that he should be. This is Batman at his best. Don't be afraid to check it out!

    Walker is one of the best artists working today and really knows how to illustrate a great story. Read Full Review

    Batman and Two-Face have to decide if theyre friends or foes as Joker stacks the deck with any army of Talons, the foot soldiers/assassins of the Court of Owls. Walker has an explosive action scenario to play with and Tomasi wisely just lets him cut loose with the fracas. With so much detail and energy on every page, Walkers art has rarely looked better and colorist Brad Anderson assures the action looks equally vibrant as it is intense. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 21, 2020

    This is a good action-heavy finale to the Two-Face cult story arc. If you're looking for bombastic action you'll find it here in a slick package.  Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Joey Casco CSW/CSS Jul 20, 2020

    There's a lot of action with some great breaks of the Joker giving commentary and just being classic Joker. It's pretty cool seeing Batman not have to hold back and, uh, put someone on the rocks. The art again is incredible and Walker's Two-Face in particular is killer. Although I'm so glad that the Two-Face cult thing is over, it's because of Walker's art and because I think Tomasi writes the character itself well, that I hope we see Two-Face again soon under different circumstances.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jul 21, 2020

    A fun issue, but as a Joker War tie-in it's really more of a side story that leads into bigger upcoming plots. Still, any comic with Rookie vs. zombies gets my recommendation. Read Full Review

    Brad Walker's art is fantastic across the board. From the characters to the action, everything in the issue looks fantastic. Read Full Review

    Now comes the Joker War, where hopefully we see things all tied together. And then it's on to issue #1027, making it a great time to be a fan of Detective Comics. Read Full Review

    If Detective Comics #1023 was the enticing set-up for a larger narrative, Detective #1024 is where they realized they'd used up most of their story already. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jul 25, 2020

    Obviously, this story is just setting up little details for "Joker War," but Tomasi and Walker try to make that as entertaining as possible. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jul 21, 2020

    As a conclusion to the Two-Face arc, this comic fails because it's rushed and hinges on highly questionable comic book logic. As a prelude to "Joker War," this comic fails because this prelude stuff happens in a story that initially had absolutely nothing to do with said crossover. Read Full Review
