A Dark Crisis tie-in issue! When Jon Kent first asked Jace Fox to join the new Justice League, the answer was a firm no. But as Deathstroke and the Legion of Doom hunt the heroes of the DCU Jace learns the hard way that there are some fights from which Batman cannot run, and the only thing he has to fear...is fear itself!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Nov 9, 2022

    Its not just the gun. There are a few other moments that dont quite live up to their potential, but for the most part, this is an admirably powerful chapter in the life of a young Batman. This is particularly impressive given how totally over-done this sort of thing is. The hero questions his or her value but is ultimately galvanized before beating the hell out of the villain trope has been done to death. Ridley and company give the old cliche new life in an issue cleverly executed from beginning to end. Read Full Review

    Often event tie-in issues are rather forgettable, but John Ridley bucks this trend with I Am Batman #15. Instead, Ridley gives us an exciting and thoughtful story that reveals much of what drives Jace Fox to be Batman. And on top of that, we get to see Jace taking an important first step towards building relationships with DC's superhero community. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Nov 9, 2022

    I really hope this new start keeps it up and am cautiously optimistic about the future of I Am Batman. The reason I'm still cautious is because this issue was mostly a one on one and only involved a single character with superpowers which worked incredibly well in order to dive into Batman's psyche but it seems like we're about to get a bunch of new superheroes and supervillains headed our way and this might dilute the story. In the past I Am Batman has had a hard time juggling multiple characters so I guess we'll see! I'm just happy to have been able to read this gem and could easily return to it without needing to read the previous issues for a recap. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Nov 10, 2022

    Sinestro should have pounded Jace into the pavement. However, he chose to confront this Batman in a battle of wits. He showed just how ill-equipped he was to fight Jace on this level! Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 8, 2022

    Last issue put I Am Batman in a weird spot that thankfully was (mostly) addressed with this tie-in that seems poised to see Jace take a major step on his journey to being a hero. Read Full Review

    This is a rare event tie-in that actually feels like it'll have a lasting impact on the character. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Nov 9, 2022

    ‘I Am Batman' continues its roller coaster of a run by taking time away from the heavily cop-focused stories to dive into Batman's mind and fears, while also finally connecting the character more to the DC Universe at large. Pitting the hero against a foe like Sinestro is a pretty big swing for a character that has mostly been very street-focused since his debut, but at the end of the day, it works and opens more doors for what could be done with this Batman going forward.

    I Am Batman #15 is a pretty weird tie-in to Dark Crisis. Read Full Review
