    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jun 28, 2022

    I will miss this book being done the way it has. Thankfully, you can reread each issue and buy the trades when they come out. But by gosh, they knocked this out of the park, and the ending defined the greatness and the sorrow that Batman and his city represent. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 1, 2022

    Detective Comics' current run has come to a bittersweet yet perfect ending, never deviating from the fantastic character work that has been a paramount part of this series so far. Truly this is going to go down as one of those great runs that people look back on years from now and can consider it a pretty classic story that sits on their shelf to be read again and again.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 28, 2022

    Shammas and Reis deliver some beautifully detailed art in the issue. The styles are perfect for this story and its characters. There are some awesome action beats as well. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 28, 2022

    Meridian has been a fairly ambiguous character over the course of this run, and this issue definitely takes her in a darker direction. Talia's involvement (which seems to be a guarantee every time Nadia Shammas writes a DC comic) also makes her more morally twisted than she's been in recent comics, and sort of flies in the face of her characterization in the last act of Shadow War.

    A solid Batman comic, although I'm most interested in what happens next in Detective Comics. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Anthony Trudeau Jun 28, 2022

    Mariko Tamakis time on Detective Comics was by no means a failure, but was at least somewhat sabotaged by issues of pacing after a promising start. Shadows of the Bat dragged on while "The Seven" sprinted to its conclusion, coming to provide the authors run with an underwhelming conclusion. While that is lamentable, fans are now left to look forward to Ram Vs run on the title. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jun 28, 2022

    As the finale to this arc, I can't say I'm very happy with this issue. The answers feel rushed and lacking actual depth, while the narrative itself tries to wrap up more threads than it can in the few issues it had. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 28, 2022

    Detective Comics #1061 ends Mariko Tamaki's run on Detective Comics with a convoluted story that lacked setup and ends with a mystery - the mystery of who thought this was good enough to print?!?  The art was good, but nothing is saving this or the other forgetful stories we've had over the past year and a half.   Read Full Review
