    COMICON - Scott Redmond Nov 28, 2022

    ‘Detective Comics' gothic horror story moves into the next act as the caped crusader is multiple steps behind his newest foes, relying on the help of an old ally as another sometimes ally falls further into darkness. Everything about this storyline is just working as the creative teams are firing on all cylinders, bringing a greatly needed depth, realistic energy, and energetic focus to many of the elements that make up Batman's world that we've seen so many times over the decades.

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Nov 22, 2022

    I love the breakdowns taking place. Characters are disintegrating as they try to exist in whatever Gotham is about to become. It seems, for now, like only the Orghams can own contentment. Batman is behind the proverbial eightball. Two-Face is a pawn without and within. Gordon is just skirting by. And we haven't even gotten to the terror the city's new villain family will release. The air of change and its stressful weight is well handled in this book. I love these storylines and hope they continue to sizzle on every new page to come. Read Full Review

    Detective Comics keeps its melody humming along through this Nocturne arc and there’s no need for an intermission yet. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 22, 2022

    Ram V's take on Two-Face is particularly intriguing, as we get a look inside Harvey Dent's twisted mind like never before. He's still in controlbarelybut maintaining that requires him to do some things that may defeat the purpose of keeping Two-Face in a box. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Nov 22, 2022

    Reis delivers some brilliantly dark and detailed art that perfectly captures the emotion and tone of the story. You feel the darkness the same way Bruce does throughout and I love it. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - B. Radtz Nov 23, 2022

    Its the second part of Ram Vs opening arc on Detective Comics, and it doesnt look like hes planning on slowing down anytime soon. Hes bringing in some fresh faces to Gotham, and looks like hes got some macabre plans for Batman, and the rest of the dark underbelly of the city. I hope to be as in love with his take here as I was during his run on Catwoman and JLD. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 22, 2022

    Bits and PiecesDetective Comics #1066 takes a few steps forward to reveal the Orghams are up to something shady, and Gael is also up to something shady. What's that shadiness? You'll have to wait for another issue. However, the art is simply gorgeous, and Ram V's execution in what you're reading is interesting enough to keep you invested. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Nov 22, 2022

    Ram V again does a great job giving readers a compelling story full of characters I just want to see more of. Harvey Dent is the highlight this issue, and honestly I'd read a whole arc dedicated to him at this point. His struggle is a big part of the reason I'm enjoying this series so much as he battles with himself on just what he should do. The larger plot points like Arzen's destruction of Arkham Asylum, and Batman's continuing investigation are equally well written and structured in a way that keeps the world and pacing feeling natural and bright. If you want solid storytelling this series is a must to pick up. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Nov 22, 2022

    Detective Comics #1066 finally proved that sometimes trying to be the smartest book on the shelf can be harmful to a title. Next issue, I'd love to see Batman being a bit more Batman. The art was great, though! Read Full Review
