    The Batman Universe - James Remolde Feb 8, 2022

    This story creates a new normal for the Next Batman. It's a normal that does not rely on Gotham or the Bat-Family but instead gives this character the chance to grow into his own. It is a great setup that introduces a lot of new characters and creates an intriguing mystery for the reader. Read Full Review

    The Big Apple" as a kid I often thought of Gotham City to be the parallel equivalent to New York City. Marvel made NYC the home to some of its big heroes" a certain Web-head from Queens, and a pretty big family of four that resides in the Baxter Building there. Wouldn't this be a nice crossover fodder for Marvel and DC as The Batman takes his turn in cleaning up the streets of NYC. Now where to put that Bat Signal??? Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 8, 2022

    I Am Batman #6is the fresh start the title needs, as it moves Jace Fox to a new city and gives him a new villain to battle. In the same way that Miles Morales differs from Peter Parker as Spider-Man, Jace is slowly becoming a different Batman than Bruce Wayne. Read Full Review

    This left him scrambling to make I Am Batman fit properly into the Infinite Frontier-era continuity. Moving Jace to a new city allows for a way to rebuild the status quo that can repair or cover a lot of the continuity problems. So, the move to New York was probably a wise decision in the long run.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 8, 2022

    I Am Batman #6 is a good start to a fresh start for Jace as well as the big New York move. Ridley allows Batman to fight, and a villain to emerge and draw the reader's attention, while also supplying an interesting political element. All told, I Am Batman is exciting, brutal, and unnerving as Batman navigates NYC as its most powerful ready to use him for their own means. Read Full Review

    Getting the Fox family out of Gotham was a good start and with a new psychopath on the loose in New York, it should help justify the change of address for Jaces Batman Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Feb 15, 2022

    After five previous issues, ‘I Am Batman' begins to find its way and finally begins to firmly build a world and focus for Jace Fox within the boundaries of New York City. Numerous topical story beats begin to have weight now that this Batman has a definitive place within the DC Universe, but only time will tell if this is enough to help this book in the long run.

    Batman-News - Nicholas Finch Feb 11, 2022

    Reviewing this book has sometimes been quite difficult. A good book is fun, because you get excited talking about it " and a bad book can be fun, because there's usually a lot to discuss. Mediocre books toe the line, which makes them tricky to review; but this issue is anything but mediocre. I understand why many people haven't given Jace a chance, but I think if the book uses this fresh start for good, we might finally have a great story that shows us exactly what the latest Batman brings to the table.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 8, 2022

    The new setting of New York City is something that this series feels like it needs to differentiate itself from other Bat-books and this first issue was pretty good in setting up what that direction will look like. The art was great and I can't wait to see how this new status quo of Jace Fox will work out in the coming months. Read Full Review

    A new era begins for Batman in I Am Batman #6, as Jace Fox moves to NYC and finds himself becoming a partner of the NYPD. Coupled with a new artist (Ken Lashley), this comic feels a whole lot different than it did just a few issues ago. Read Full Review

    John Ridley's series is the first Batman property I have kept up to date with, I am currently enjoy it, and what was presented in this issue has me excited for what’s to come next.

    This new arc keeps a lot of things that I enjoyed previously, such as the interactions of Batman with the city's people, and the continuation of the street-level crimefighter Batman really has me hooked. With the introduction of a political element with Batman and the NYPD, I am most definitely looking forward to seeing what it all leads toward, later down the line.

    The art in this issue is my favourite of the series, so far.

    New arc means a new status quo and a new status quo means a like of exposition and set up. Thankfully, this book has some great art and strong dialogue to boot.

    Theres a Batman in New York, and the mayor of NYC wants to handle this very differently than Gotham does(and who could blame him?) His approach to this is going to lead to some very interesting and cool developments.

    Jace us taking a hands on approach to his mission and hes already got the good will of the lower level cops of the city.

    Making Batman a cop was an inspired choice of the writer and I'm hoping it leads to some nice commentary and moments about the lines vigilantes cross in their duty. Its also a nice change of pace from the familiar l more

    I'm not completely sold on Jace as Batman still, but this series seems to finally be picking up steam. I pray Ridley can bring it all together in the end.

    If you're still reading this title, and the most you have to add in the way of commentary and critique is, "Jace Fox is not Batman," you clearly don't have much in the way of a thought process. You're some sort of NPC just inhabiting the world as a font of evidence for solipsism. This issue is good. I do think the pacing is a little too slow. We get so many deliberations on something decided on the first or second page, and that makes for a weird reading experience. But I do think of this issue as a soft reboot for the series, so I'm being a little lax about just how much of this issue is reaffirming things we know and setting up a new status quo. The villain seems neat, if only for their gruesomeness. I like when Batman mixes with horror, more

    I like that Tim Fox is out of Gotham, but he's still not Batman for me.
