    David Hine will be back with more Batman two issues from now. I'm curious to see what he does with the world of Gotham City next. Read Full Review

    I really was not a fan of this issue. I think the plot could be much better and I feel like a lot of Batman's reactions to certain events were out of character for him. I feel like I have read this before. I almost wish I was still reading Rucka's Detective run, at least until Bruce returns. There is no need for yet ANOTHER Batman comic featuring Dick Grayson.

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher May 30, 2010

    The inmates truly run Arkham Asylum, and it took this issue for DC to put it right in front of our faces. Apparently Black Mask is such a great villain that we need to create an origin story, and drag his appearances out that much longer, only to end by showing we haven't seen the last of the big bad. So-so storytelling and art that doesn't do anything for me, has me giving Detective Comics #865 1.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
