BAD NIGHT, GOOD KNIGHT PART 3! The Joker is dying from the chemicals he was going to use to wreak havoc in Gotham. Batman only has enough anti-toxin left for one person. Does he save his greatest foe? It sounds like a mortality riddle...what other villain could be waiting for Batman to fail?!

    Legends of the Dark Knight looks like it wraps up part of its Joker storyline here but is moving onto the next part of the main story that Roberston is telling, so it has a pretty good flow to it. Whil eit's a very dialogue-heavy installment and focused on the two men by themselves for the bulk of it, it's pretty engaging to read even if the conversations are familiar. Combined with Robertson's visual design, it all comes together well and should please most Bat-fans that want a little more taste of things. Read Full Review

    I had high hopes for this story going into it. I love a good mystery and the initial set up of the whole arc was enough to draw me in. As was the interesting internal conflicts presented in issue #2. Unfortunately for me, I just didn't see everything come together in this third part of the tale. It felt a little too scattered and rushed, like it still wasn't sure what kind of story it wanted to be, even at the end. I wouldn't say it's a bad read, it just never quite lived up to what it could be, and as the opening tale in this new revamp of Legends of the Dark Knight I was hoping for a little more.

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Jul 28, 2021

    This first tale of the new incarnation of the Legends of the Dark Knight title feels and reads a bit"..whelming. We are introduced to a new character of interest for the Riddler, but we never get any closure on them. The rest of the story plays everything rather safely, and unfortunately, this doesn't make a strong impression and doesn't excite any enthusiasm for further adventures from this creative team, as well as the title itself.

    Since I'm reviewing the print version this covers Issues 3 and 4.
    This story was off to a good start but this chapter was less satisfying. they sure seem to like making characters throw up here as there's been 3 graphic incidents in 2 issues alone. For the good ol' days of code approval when stuff like that wasn't allowed.
    They couldn't go without that question again. "Why not kill the Joker?' I can't even begin to tell you how tiresome that is. As for Quiz, move over Punchline, make way for the latest Harley knock-off. She's not even the first henchwoman Riddler's had with that name.
    This story is still better than your regular modern storyline. Fortunately it concludes next issue. I miss the days of 2 and 3 part stories. No more

    Eh, I've tried liking this book, but I just cannot get into it, and the weekly digital-first style doesn't really help it. I know it's meant to be sort-of an anthology book, but I don't know, I've tried it and it's just not for me.
