The battle lines have been drawn. The insane Impostor Joker will lead his army of Jokerz against the imposing Impostor Batman and his Guardian Bats and the battleground will be the Gotham City World's Fair. The only hope Gotham has is The Dark Knight himself, but can even Batman stop both Impostors before more blood is shed? All will be revealed, including the mystery behind the Impostors, in this shocking and horrifying conclusion to "Batman: Impostors"!

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Oct 27, 2010

    I've gotten to read this story arc from the beginning and, because it's been such a thoroughly fun read for the past few months, I'm going to push the rating over the cliff and give it a perfect score. Sadly, this isn't the kind of Batman story that's going to cross over and get recognition from the mainstream press, nor will it probably get some lavish collection, but if you're looking for something that puts you back in touch with what you loved about Batman in the first place - - the full-throttle gothic morality plays with ample doses of the weird, morbid and tragic.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Oct 30, 2010

    A very satisfying Bruce Wayne story for those who want a break from what Morrison is doing. Not without flaws, but Hine has created a very cool new villain in Winslow Heath. Hopefully, he'll be back sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Nov 1, 2010

    Though it took readers four issues to get to the punchline, I still think Detective Comics #870 is worth a read, if for nothing else than to ponder the question the sanity of the citizens of Gotham - or really any city that is constantly being destroyed by some crazed villain or force. The writing is a tad jumpy in places, but I do like the ending that could have the Jokerz coming back in a future story line (Batman Beyond, perhaps?). McDaniel does a solid job with the living, and mayhem and destruction feels looks real enough. Overall, Detective Comic #870 isn't bad, and worth of 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review
