    Detective Comics #837 was an enjoyable read and fans of Countdown will probably enjoy this tie-in issue. Of course, this is a Countdown tie-in issue that even readers who aren't following Countdown would probably enjoy. And without a doubt, if you are a fan of either the Riddler or Harley Quinn then you should definitely get this issue. Read Full Review

    I sincerely hope Mr. Dini is finished trying to expand on his floundering weekly series, because we already suffer through enough superfluous Countdown-tie-ins as is, and his Detective Comics one-shots used to provide a much needed break from the monotony of following DC's current megaevent.

    This should not have been an issue of Detective Comics. The Athenian Womens Shelter angle is not an interesting one and for it to take center stage here is disappointing. If Dini had crafted this story from Batmans point of few and had Batman follow the Riddler as the Countdown tie-in took place, I think this would have been a much better issue. However, theres hardly any Batman and lots of Countdown. Read Full Review
