    I have no idea what's happening, or where this is going but I'm enjoying the wild ride. Dick and Talia make a great team and I would actually like to see more of their dynamic. Seeing this storyline come from a C story to the main subject was amazing, so I'll definitely be catching up with Gotham when the next issue comes out. Read Full Review

    It's exactly the kind of chaotic thrill ride I want from this book. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller May 10, 2022

    Though largely an expositional issue, the potential of the addition of Bruce, Talia, Nightwing, and Damian as main characters in the next arc of Future State, and the heady excitement of exploring more of the Batman 666 concept, do provide a lot more interest than the last several issues, as new artist Geoffo provides solid pencil work in the series' black and white imagery.

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken May 10, 2022

    The new direction Future State: Gotham is taking with this issue is interesting, but it stumbles out of the gate. Too many pages are devoted to reprinting older comics, which harms the overall narrative and artistic flow. Once the main plot is able to finally begin, it's filled with enough intrigue and adventure to get you hooked for what comes next. The comic would benefit immensely from actually focusing on that part of the story. Read Full Review

    It's not unreadable. You can certainly pull things of value from it, but so much here just feels like an elaborate junk drawer of ideas that DC can't justify throwing away but also doesn't really want to do justice and sadly it shows. Read Full Review

    The script could have been much better, but I found the plot here pretty entertaining

    This was a significant improvement to some of the previous issues

    Too many pages are spent reprinting previous comics, The whole "future state" thing is completely unnecessary as this storyline could be written in the current timeline without needing to make much changes to characters as the current timeline is basically same as this. Batman and Talia finding Damian (presumed evil), bat family looking after gotham and Red-hood is good but still the outcast. (not exactly same but still some changes and this story could be put in current timeline without any effort) this is why the "future state" is as waste because it is nothing different from what is already told. all the futures of the bat family has already been told in stories before.

    Connecting Batman 666 Damian as this was another shit mov more
