    This is one of the best issues of Grayson yet, already one of the best series of the year. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Dec 1, 2015

    This two-issue sequence establishes a clear pivot point for the series. With the first phase of his new life behind him, and now reconnected to the Bat Family and the greater DCU, Dick Grayson enters the heart of the mystery that is Spyral. It is likely significant that the Ouroboros forms a circular opening like the mouth of a tunnel or, less optimistically, a black hole. Given the nature of Spyral and the shadowy realm in which it lives, it seems likely that something very strange waits on the other side. But Dick Grayson must first defeat the guardians of the portal, and that will likely keep Seeley and King busy for another couple of arcs. Read Full Review

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Nov 26, 2015

    But this event seems like the furthest thing from writers Tim Seeley and Tom King, artist Stephen Mooney, and colorist Jeromy Cox's minds inGrayson#14 as they channel their inner Arachnes and weave various elements plot points and elements of the comic so far, including Spyder, Frau Netz, Agent Zero, and even our amusing villain of the month Ladytron to set up a intrigued filled showdown between Dick Grayson and the reborn Otto Netz. The man, who was (and is starting to be again) defined by his close relationship to many superheroes, must face the man, who hates them most and wants nothing more than their secrets to laid bare before the world while perpetuating an endless cycle of violent conflict.

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Nov 26, 2015

    The leaders of Spyral demand Helena send the drones to attack and kill Dick, and she does so against her own judgement. However, Dick has Ladytron emit the EMP, and everything goes black… Even the club Midnighter was hanging out at, disappointing him greatly, but making Helena happy, as she knows Dick is okay. Suddenly, Tiger wakes back up, and attacks Dick. He's getting really tired of getting cold-clocked by Dick, and is going to kill him. As he is getting choked out, Dick says they need to take down the Netz sisters, Helena, and the rest of Spyral. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 26, 2015

    The dialogue in this issue was over-the-top and laughable, but Tim Seeley gives us so much to push the narrative forward that I'm going to have to bite my tongue and accept it.  Seriously, longtime readers will eat this issue up as we learn about the formation and plan of Spyral and see what they will do to protect that secret.  The art does the job and the book ends pointing into the only direction that makes sense in the long run.  I can't wait for January to see Grayson versus Spyral!

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Nov 26, 2015

    A rare misfire, there's still enough here to enjoy on a storytelling level. I genuinely loved every single scene Otto was in, as his crazy mad scientist schtick fits perfectly with the weird spy antics of this book, and Dick's story did get progressively better as the issue went on. Still, it's not great, and I really hate being harsh to this book as it's usually the best book DC puts out. That cover sure is super-weird, though, right? Read Full Review
