    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Aug 27, 2015

    I was happy to see the black blossom subplot move forward a bit but I am interested in what is the warning that Tarr believes the blossoms to be giving. Will Tarr be able to move his research further with the Shift being shutdown? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Aug 26, 2015

    Sergeant Rook has his hooks in the Midnight Shift, but once again his allegiances are fluid as sand: one minute he's calling down the fire and the next he's hedging caution. I feel like there's something more going on with him, but we're going to have to wait this part out patiently as Fawkes is playing a long game with that particular part of the plot. Meanwhile, IA is ramping up the investigation regardless of Rook's misgivings, and the team itself? Well, they're still not very cohesive since Sister Justine's death, but their dedication to one another and the job is without question. This book delivers action, pathos, and some pretty gross-out horror. If you're not reading it because you think it's not your thing, your "thing" needs serious expanding because this book is truly terrific. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 27, 2015

    Fawkes is providing for some strong standalone issues with what he presents to the reader to keep us engaged while laying down some really good character details to build who the team is and how they struggle to interact with each other. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jess Camacho Aug 26, 2015

    “Gotham By Midnight” is an underrated series. Fans of science fiction, the paranormal and police dramas will have a lot to entertain them and this issue ups the ante as far as the internal affairs investigation. Ferreyra's art continues to be stellar and worth the cover price all on its own. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 27, 2015

    Not a lot new on the Gotham By Midnight front.  A supernatural menace appears and our team takes it out, but we do have an interesting development with how our team will proceed in the future now that Internal Affairs is poking around and I hope that we deal more with that story than constantly forcing a monster of the week scenario.  While you might get a "been there, done that" feel from this book, its' still enjoyable and the art continues to be great.

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Aug 27, 2015

    We know this new story arc is going to focus on Internal Affairs and the investigating of Corrigan's division of supernatural crime, which already sounds fairly "meh" in potential, and this one ultimately didn't do much to encourage optimism. I wouldn't call this a filler issue, but Gotham by Midnight #8 feels as close as possible to one. But hey, they can't all be great. Read Full Review

    Gotham By Midnight #8 is clearly executed and easy to understand, but never manages to engage. From its broadest ideas to its most specific details, the issue rarely passes the bar of being passable. It is a quick horror story, with only a single stand out moment, that will be forgotten in less time than it takes to read. Read Full Review
