It's a tango to the death as Batman dances with an old flame while trying not to catch on fire. Using the new information about "black noise," Batman investigates the music box in his possession some more, which leads him to question whether music is actually able to contain physics-altering properties. Later, this theory is tested with Two-Face.

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Sep 27, 2022

    Detective Comics #1064 is a golden modern Gothic adventure. Batman gets way too many books, but this one is worth it. Get it, get extra copies, and surprise people with them who walk home at night. This is excellent. If you haven't started this yet, go back to issue #1062 and inhale the vibe. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Oct 6, 2022

    ‘Detective Comics' new story arc and creative team continue to bring new elements to the table while bringing out the best in those that have been part of the mythos for decades. Gotham is at its best when the city feels like a living breathing companion to the dark knight detective and allies rather than just a back drop for their adventures. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 27, 2022

    Detective Comics feels like a focused back to basics take on the detective aspect of Batman with each issue in the Overture arc building on the previous installments. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Sep 27, 2022

    Meanwhile Si Spurriers giving us a Gordon who looks to be in over his head. How will this affect him, and his place in Gotham, now that hes no longer commissioner? What will Bullocks role be, now that he and Gordon are private investigators? The potential is near limitless. On top of that, were getting covers from Evan Cagle that just oozes Edgar Allen Poe, theyre practically poetic. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Sep 27, 2022

    Albuquerque delivers some beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art throughout. There are some visually brutal moments to be found that showcase just how menacing Batman can be.  Read Full Review

    Ram V continues parceling out the secrets of his new Batman run slowly, relying much more on gothic moodiness than extreme action. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Sep 27, 2022

    This latest entry in Ram V's Detective Comics run is a solid, well paced tale that continues layering character elements on the mystery he's been building. Between Talia, the Ograhms, and Bruce's own struggles with his health the story has enough going on to keep readers invested even as the story takes a turn that is a little more character focused over mystery or action. Overall, I found it to be a great addition to this operatic tale Batman is entangled in. Read Full Review

    The artwork alone puts Detective Comics#1064 in its own class and makes it well worth picking up this week. Read Full Review

    This issue teased out some connections with the League of Assassins, but it almost felt like a detour from the haunting story we've gotten thus far. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Theodis Wright Sep 27, 2022

    Kudos to DC and Si Spurrier on completely throwing me for a loop and connecting the backup story to the main story plot. As decent as Ram V's story has been, the pace of things seems slow to develop. Let's hope the ending means that business is about to pick up for the arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Sep 28, 2022

    Detective Comics #1064 did its job to get us to the next point in the "Gotham Nocturne storyline. Bringing Talia Al Ghul back into play as a major character was a great call as she always has strong chemistry with Bruce Wayne when they share screen time together. Hopefully the pacing of the story can be picked up a bit to better establish the Orgham Family now that they in Gotham City. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Sep 27, 2022

    Detective Comics #1064 felt like the middle child of the series. This was the episode that the producers wanted to cut, but the writer and creative department said it was crucial to the plot. Once this whole story's done. I will judge if this issue needed to be included. Hopefully next month we'll get to the point. Read Full Review
