    I Am Batman #17 is a very emotional and powerful chapter in Jace's story. But it does have me a bit worried about how the series will be resolved next issue. I do hope that this isn't the last we see of Jace's Batman. And hopefully Ridley will return to pen another volume. Read Full Review

    I Am Batman #17 is a very emotional and powerful chapter in Jace's story, even if it does have me a bit worried about how the series will be resolved with just one issue to go. I do hope that this isn't the last we see of him as Batman. Hopefully, Ridley will return to pen another volume. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Jan 17, 2023

    Compelling and deeply personal, I am Batman #17 strikes the perfect balance between drama and action. This issue's success is largely due to Ridley's focus on tension mounting within the Fox family and thematically tying it into the action sequences. The result is powerful, as Ridley presents the reader with a relatable, fledgling Dark Knight. Christian Duce, Eduardo Pansica, and Julio Ferreira's artwork are astounding throughout every sequence. Unfortunately, the differences in art styles between each creator are noticeable enough to take you out of the moment. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jamie Remolde Jan 10, 2023

    This story helps us get deeper into the lives of the Fox family and at the same time allows for more character growth in the main protagonist. It appears that another masked hero is now in New York in Nobody. Read Full Review

    In the penultimate issue, ‘I Am Batman' begins to load up the plate with a variety of plot and character moments both new and old as it prepares for some type of conclusion. Jace Fox's history and place in the DC Universe is still being forged, and some of the elements are proving to be interesting should they be followed up on beyond this series. Read Full Review

    I Am Batman feels like a book thats starting to spiral due a needlessly cynical take on its main characters while bringing in more elements to feel just like a standard Batman book. Read Full Review

    To be honest, this wasn't the strongest issue the drama feels overwrought and while Jace's extreme reaction is understandable, it feels in conflict with some of the growth he's shown during the series. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jeremy Bernard Jan 11, 2023

    I think it's really cool that this issue actually addresses some tense family dynamics, themes that relate to the real world and characters that are complex. My problem is the only reason I can actually unpack this issue is because I had to sit through so much filler and I have the patience to reread the issues that were actually relevant. So I think these characters can be talked about at length at this point (except the cops) but are people doing that? Or are they just waiting for it to be over? I know some people are genuinely into this series and I think that it's cool that once in a while you can have an issue like this that actually rewards them for sticking to it but it's not enough in my opinion and if you don't want to start from the beginning I would definitely recommend avoiding this issue.Score: 5/10 Read Full Review
