    This issue of Detective really is a prime example of how superb Batman comics canand shouldbe. I hope this creative team will stay on this title for as long as possible. Read Full Review

    Im so glad Dini decided to abandon the idea of doing a mature version of his Animated Series type of stories. Heres hoping he continues along the path set out with this fantastic issue. Read Full Review

    Detective Comics #826 was an enjoyable and well done issue. However, it is like cotton candy. Delicious, but lacking in any real substance. Dini needs to abandon this continual one-shot issue format and try and establish a more developed and intricate multiple issue story arc. If you enjoy one-shot issues, then you will definitely love Dini's run on Detective Comics. Dini's one-shot formal also makes Detective Comics very new reader friendly. Read Full Review

    As well as Dini's ever so weak Bond-inspired leftovers and/or poor characterization, Don Kramer and Wayne Faucher fail to reach their previous levels of artistic quality. The opening action sequence is easily the best part, but the rest of the panels are merely passable. One section of the story is absolutely awful. In a flashback to the remainder of the Batman Family's 52 "three-hour tour," Kramer and Faucher foul up Nightwing's anatomy something fierce and make Tim Drake look way too old, even taking in account the sliding scale of years DC tends to use as a guidepost. Overall this issue of Detective Comics is a lump of coal. Read Full Review
