    This chapter serves as a jumping in point for the series. Ridley does an excellent job of blending real world concerns with masked hero adventure. Read Full Review

    While I originally had some doubts about a new Batman, John Ridley's is pulling it off so far. I still doubt that Jace would succeed as a replacement for Bruce Wayne, but Ridley is proving that he can succeed as his own Batman. Ridley has managed to take an unlikely premise and is building a fascinating new take on the Batman legend from it. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 19, 2022

    Gotham City continues to spread its power into New York City as ‘I Am Batman' kicks off a whole new story arc that moves many of the characters and story pieces ahead and continues to flesh out this new Batman's supporting cast and world. Following the action-heavy serial killer arc with an issue that spends more time with characters and world-building was a great choice. Read Full Review

    I am enjoying this comic, but I feel that its use of New York is by far the weakest part of the series. Read Full Review

    I'm not sure what the next big plot here is, especially with a Dark Crisis tie-in coming, but Ridley is doing some good work building his cast. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jul 12, 2022

    I Am Batman #11 is a good character drama, but lacks Batman fighting villains and criminals in general. There's a promise of more superhero stuff, but expect to dig into character relationships more than anything else. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 12, 2022

    While I have been enjoying this series a lot, this issue and the last seem to be lacking a bit from what we usually get out of I Am Batman and maybe it's just me talking about things I don't know or understand but it feels like editorial is trying to make this book more Batman than it previously was and because of this, the flow and storytelling that we were previously getting is now lost. The art is great though and there's still some interesting stuff going on, especially if you need more Question in your life, but this issue didn't do it for me overall. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - D.M. Grant Jul 15, 2022

    The artwork is pretty good, but the politics and writing come across as hollow, focusing more on showboating melodrama than actual substance. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Jul 12, 2022

    Even though I enjoy tiny details here and there I have found I Am Batman to be kind of overly confusing in its themes and messages. This issue in particular felt like everything was still advancing at a snail's pace and I honestly wouldn't recommend reading this issue because it's not even a part one at this point, just another section of Jace's many slices of life that have all gotten stale real fast.

    I don’t understand the critic ratings. I thought it was another great issue.

    11 issues in and this series is still one of the better Batman books on the shelves. Started out fairly decent, but now it feels fresh, episodic, and it keeps moving. Ridley is a TV writer and he incorporates his talents well to this format given time.

    All the politics and cloak and dagger keep you guessing, and Jace's supporting cast gets some time to shine.

    Were finally seeing things lead up to the scene we saw in Batman Black and White... with Jace having a Robin of his own down the line.

    Detectives Chubbs and Whitaker are interesting characters, especially Chubbs. And the introduction of Renee Montoya to NYC brings more "questions", which I always appreciate.

    Strong issue, solid series. Had more

    I thought this was some nice follow-up after how the last issue ended. While this wasn't my favorite issue of the run, I still enjoyed it and I really like the story Ridley is crafting here. As another user stated in their review, this feels very episodic. While I don't have that much to say about this, I will say that this continues to be a well-written book with pretty solid art.

    Crazy how non-racist it is to constantly refer to the black Batman as a murderer/criminal, while praising the white batwoman for being 100 times better, despite her having murdered people *intentionally* before.

    Privilege. Billionaire' Row. Where hit-and-run killer Jace Fox lives, when he is not wearing a Batman costume in NYC, pretending to work for law and order as his form of penance. Privilege. Since he is too privileged to actually pay for his crimes like everyone else. Murder by Jace Fox is OK. Murder by others is wrong. Privilege.

    What I would like about this story is if Detective Chubb was consistent about law and order, including the criminal Jace Fox. Equality Under the Law. Not Privilege. But John Ridley doesn't want to write about that. What a shame. I like the characters of Detective Chubb and Whitaker. If they had a larger role, this might be more interesting.

    Meantime, there is just too much soap opera nonse more
