    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Mar 7, 2009

    For the most part, Gotham Gazette #1 isn't a bad issue, if it were an ongoing mini-series, it might actually do really well, much like the Gotham Nights series from many years ago that told tales of those not directly connected to the Batman. Perhaps that is the point? Maybe this is the Batman anthology that has been hinted at recent conventions. This one-shot doesn't feel important in the great scheme of things, so it will be interesting to see how Battle for the Cowl and this issue tie into one another. The issue stands on its own legs, so for now Gotham Gazette #1 earns 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    If youre not a huge Batman fan this is not for you, especially since it doesnt seem like it will impact the coming Battle for the Cowl. On the other hand, for Batman fans this is a nice treat. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Mar 9, 2009

    Gotham Gazette: Batman Dead does it's job. Nothing crazy, no big reveals, just a nudge to get people excited about the upcoming storyline. It does come across as a bit of a cash-in because of these reasons, and I have to say that it didn't come across as a "must read" by any means. If you're going to be reading the Battle For The Cowl, then by all means, give it a read, but I wouldn't worry about missing it in the long run. I'm giving this one a textbook C. This is the epitome of what a C book is, not being a bad thing but not really being all that great either. Either way, I am even that much more excited about the upcoming books after having read this, so I guess it does serve a purpose. Read Full Review

    If anyone is on the fence about picking this comic up, save your money, it had NOTHING to do with the upcoming "Battle for the Cowl" storyline. Read Full Review
