    I loved this issue. It's a perfect blend of narrative ideas I love to see in Batman: mystery, a look at the past, and some really well done humor. Bruce is likable both in costume and out, Alfred gets some excellent moments to shine, and the story has a lot to say about accountability and making up for the past. If you want a nice, tight, one and done story packed full of great moments this issue is a must have. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Aug 17, 2021

    This short tale makes effective use of its space to run home a deep and resounding message, with a beautiful and cohesive display of artwork. The storytelling itself is a wonderful blend of action and detective work, and combines the feeling of a classic Sherlock Holmes short with a message of morality that is as authentic now as it was in the early 1900s.

    While we initially think we're getting a Riddler installment, what we do get may be more interesting overall in the long run, if there is one. Darick Robertson's working the storyline pretty well so that it has a smooth if somewhat predictable progression with just enough moments of shimmying around so that it's not complex expected moments. A lot of this is still inner monologue material and that's a dime a dozen kind of thing when it comes to Batman stories. But it does work well enough in how Robertson looks at the past and present, especially after the Joker's comment previously wondering when we all got so serious. Part of me wishes we could get back to those early days in the 80s and I keep hoping they'll figure out how to do that through one of these digital-first projects. Read Full Review
