    John Ridley's I Am Batman #12 is a great start to Jace's first major team-up with another hero (outside of Future State stories). This chapter has me eager to see what Ridley and Duce have planned for the rest of this team-up. Read Full Review

    I have absolutely no complaints. In fact, I would say that I Am Batman #12 is one of the best issues of this series yet. The issue presents a great start to Jace's first major team-up with another hero (outside of “Future State“ stories), so this chapter has me eager to see what Ridley and Duce have planned for the rest of this team-up.

    I Am Batman keeps evolving in a strong manner as Ridley explores his title character, expands his supporting cast and approaches modern-day issues in a meaningful way. Read Full Review

    It's a solid book, but the Dark Crisis tie-in might step up the plotting and pace a bit. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Aug 17, 2022

    Even after a year's worth of issues, ‘I Am Batman' continues its up and down trajectory as the series tries to find itself and where the character should stand within the DC Universe. Even with a new city, stripped-down approach, and more street-level feeling the new Batman isn't fully living up to the potential that the character holds. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 9, 2022

    There is way too much stuff shoved into this issue and the main plot just doesn't feel like it actually works the way that it's supposed to. The art is great throughout thankfully, but the story of I Am Batman seems to be spiraling out of control back into Gotham problems while doing everything it can to say it connects New York City to it and it's just not working.

    I wish I liked this comic more, but it feels like it's still missing a direction and spending too much time trying to reference the discourse without truly engaging in it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Aug 10, 2022

    I was mostly bored with this issue. The plot advances very slowly and the characters feel really bland and uninteresting. I wasn't able to latch onto the art because the settings and action don't have any showstopper moments. So as much as I appreciate the consistency and details of the realistic world that Batman is in I don't really care about why Batman is there or what Batman is going to do now that he's there. I would suggest skipping this issue and checking out the next one because you probably won't be lost anyways. Read Full Review
