    The entire creative team deserves accolades, for they force me to do something I never thought I would do. I'm putting a Batman book back on my subscription list. I will stay with the title until Dini leaves. Read Full Review

    While this issue is promising, theres no last panel twist or mystery subplot to hook me in. Ill come back based on the strength of the creative team and the overall solid quality of this issue, but while solid is reassuring, its not dynamic. Read Full Review

    Detective Comics #821 is a good issue. It combines well done writing and solid artwork to deliver a nice comic that is enjoyable to read. This is a good starting point for new readers. If you like your Batman dark and old school in feel, and I mean 1940's old school, then you will probably enjoy this title. I'm definitely enjoying Dini's Batman a lot more than Robinson's Batman.
