This special Two-Face issue is split in half artistically by maestros Rafael Albuquerque and Ivan Reis to portray the struggles Harvey Dent goes through trying to stay alive with the help of his more evil side... Genius writer Ram V not only devised each page of this story to be a dark reflection of the page facing it, but also of itself from front to back! This is an issue you won't want to miss!

    But Why Tho? - William J. Jackson Jan 24, 2023

    Detective Comics #1068 is another journey into the Dante's Inferno called Gotham. Or perhaps it's best to call it Orgham's Inferno, for it is definitely dragging Batman and its citizens into a new level of darkness just when they were seeing a light at the end of the subway tunnel.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 30, 2023

    ‘Detective Comics' #1068 continues its stellar new creative direction that has broken the character and his world down to their basest levels in order to truly explore them, taking us on a beautiful haunting ride in the process. There isn't one bit of this run that has missed so far, with everyone involved hitting home runs out of the park in order to bring us something that is destined to be one of the all-time great series runs.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jan 24, 2023

    It feels like whenever a new creative team comes aboard Batman they have all these grand statements about doing something different and shaking things up. So far, the Detective Comics crew is making good on their promise and delivering a sensationally unpredictable Batman arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Seth A. Jan 24, 2023

    This issue set a high standard for Detective Comics. Next month cannot get here fast enough for issue #1069! The crescendo of the ending of this issue and completion of Act 1 gives me full faith that the entire creative team are just getting started in this story. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 24, 2023

    Both this and the main story seem to be following up on elements of the recent Arkham City: The Order of the World, and they're doing a great job of making Gotham City seem creepier and more unfriendly than it has in a while. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jan 24, 2023

    Both artists deliver beautifully detailed art that showcases the power of the character of Batman while also brilliantly utilizing the darkness with Two-Face. Read Full Review

  • 8.0 - Christian Hoffer Jan 25, 2023

    Ivan Reis joins Rafael Albuquereue on art for the primary story and while they surprisingly mesh well, there's still a... scratchiness to the art that doesn't feel right. Whether that's a deliberate choice or simply an inker trying to smooth down two different art styles, it makes the story feel a bit grittier. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Jan 24, 2023

    Detective Comics #1068 delivers with the main story but suffers with the backup story. If I were you, I'd read the first part and ditch the second. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Connor Boyd Jan 24, 2023

    While pacing might be slow at time, Ram V continues to write a compelling narrative Detective Comics, full of big drama, dark enemies, and interesting questions. With a talented artistic team, issue #1068 is a strong addition to the operatic Gotham Nocturne arc. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jan 24, 2023

    The conflict between Batman and the Orghams burns in a terrible blaze, but Two-Face takes center stage in this dark and powerful part of Ram V's opera, expertly illustrated by two master artists. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Matina Newsom Jan 25, 2023

    As an issue promised to be all about Harvey and Two-Face, this story doesn't quite meet those expectations. It does make good on the promise by focusing on Harvey's conflict through the series to bring it to a kind of resolution as he is at last forced to decide whether or not he will work with Two-Face or not. However, some awkward pacing with Batman thrown into the mix takes away from the character centric story Ram V built this issue with Harvey. Even so, it's a good entry in the run, and one that should pave the way for a little more momentum going forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jan 24, 2023

    Detective Comics #1068 is a collection of things happening and potentially interesting ideas. Still, the plot moves at a snail's pace, and there needs to be a clear direction or motivation for the villains. Read Full Review
