DEMON VS. INNER DEMONS IN A FIGHT FOR BRUCE WAYNE'S SOUL! As Batman races through the streets of Gotham and out of the Orgham's grasp, Bruce races through the memories in his mind as the Azmer demon tries to take hold of him...except the only thing in the demon's way is Bruce's own inner demons...and Barbatos. Then, in the backups, can Bruce's memory of Alfred consoling him as a boy be preserved from the Azmer if he takes Barbatos's offer?

    We're about to embark on an epic journey through time, and Ram V has done an amazing job of getting us invested in what's to come. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Oct 24, 2023

    Francavilla delivers some stunning art throughout the issue. The imagery brilliantly enhances and captures the dark and desperate tone of the story. Read Full Review

    Francavilla's art is much more grounded than the past surreal takes in past issues, but I think it's a good match with the standalone story that Ram V tells with this issue. Read Full Review

    If you e been following the series this issue still contributes to the larger narrative but a core of the experience makes the issue feel like a one shot. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeff Oct 25, 2023

    The book is also hurting now as it's so far removed from the events playing out in the rest of the Batman titles with the Batman/Catwoman Gotham War arc. Whether that's a bad thing is up for debate. It's just weird for such a major storyline occurring after Gotham Nocturne started and at this rate will end before this is over. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Oct 24, 2023

    Ram V and Franco Francavilla's moody, deliberate storytelling brings this two-parter to an end. While the Orghams finally have captured Batman, it still feels like their motivations and ultimate plan are far more hazy than engaging. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Oct 24, 2023

    Detective Comics #1075 is a regrettable miss in an already struggling title. The highlight of Ram V's script is an interesting development concerning one of the GCPD detectives who owes his life to Batman. The low point is everything else, particularly Francavilla's rushed, sloppy art. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Oct 24, 2023

    Detective Comics #1075 has turned a usually happy-go-lucky Bat-fan into a grumpy complaining nerd the opposite of what comics are supposed to do. I really hope that DC changes direction fast. Read Full Review
