    Weekly Comic Book Review - DS Arsenault Nov 27, 2009

    Rucka has put Detective on my pull list. If Detective, Batman and Robin, Batgirl, Red Robin and Batman are what happens when Bruce Wayne is taken out of the picture, I hope Bruce never comes back. The Bat-family of titles is fast becoming a must-read for smart readers. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Nov 25, 2009

    I was tempted to give this a Must Read like the previous issue, but it read more like a straight up origin with few shocks or draws. It's well written and Williams is still fantastic on art, but not nearly as powerful as the previous issue. Still highly recommended though. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Nov 26, 2009

    As good as the Rucka and Williams's opening arc on "Detective Comics" was, this arc is even better. This is the kind of comic that we're going to remember for a long, long time. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Thom Young and Dave Wallace Dec 14, 2009

    Thom Young: Well, I don't think there is any confusion surrounding the Article 125 stuff. I just think the contradictions in Kate Kane's backstory could have easily been corrected without Rucka substantially changing anything about the character. Read Full Review
