    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Oct 6, 2016

    This installment of “Night of the Monster Men” was very great, thanks to Orlando and Seeley's witty scripting and Antonio's solid art. If thestoryline's conclusion is as exciting as this issue, itlooks like “Night of the Monster Men” will end on a high note. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - William Evans Oct 7, 2016

    All in all, it is an investment to follow the whole Monster Men storyline, but it has been worthwhile to see something a bit new that involved all the heroes around Gotham. Read Full Review

    While this crossover has been solid thus far, it may have finally hit the road towards greatness. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Deejay Dayton Oct 5, 2016

    All in all, this story arc has avoided the problems that often plague the crossover Batman tales, of having too many tie in issues, so the story just keeps moving sideways, instead of forwards. Each issue of this series so far has directly advanced the plot, which is clearly approaching a resolution. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeff Lake Oct 5, 2016

    If you've been invested in the arc so far, the payoff on the home stretch has been a lot of fun. This issue's cliffhanger is a great teaser dating back to the classic Strange/Batman rivalry. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 5, 2016

    “Night of the Monster Men” has been a strong Bat-Family crossover. Keeping it to one month of titles double shipping is a more concise method for doing crossovers. The weekly frequency has to be one of the positive lessons learned from the successful weekly Batman series from the past couple of years. If you are enjoying the crossover, you can't miss Nightwing #6, and if not, in just two weeks we are back on track with Nightwing and Raptor in Nightwing #7! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Oct 7, 2016

    Nightwing #6 isn't quite the same silly fun as the rest of the Night of the Monster Mento this point. Roge Antonio and Chris Sotomayor provide the same kind of cartoonish visuals, but the script by Steve Orlando and Tim Seeley takes a much more serious turn. Now, it isn't overwhelming in its darkness, especially considering we are talking about a Halloween-themed Batman story of the modern era. Still, there are revelations obviously designed to carry well beyond this specific story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Patrick Hellen Oct 5, 2016

    The previous issue of Nightwing did quite a bit more with the subject matter at hand, and felt far less like a deep breath before the final parts of Monster Men. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 5, 2016

    It's more of the same of what we've already gotten from the Night of the Monster Men story here and actually, I found myself feeling even more lost with things just happening "because" and me wondering what the hell the Wayne Watchtowers even do.  I enjoyed the art enough here, but overall I'm getting tired of this story.

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Oct 5, 2016

    Getting better. There's enough to like here to recommend it, from the snappy dialogue to the great visuals, and the fact that it gets genuinely good in the second half makes it all the better. There are still plenty of problems with the story as a whole, and I doubt we'll be thinking about it much in six months or so, but a solid use of one of the oldest rogues in the books may go a long way toward redeeming the crossover. “Night of the Monster Men” is silly, but thanks to Nightwing it's starting to get fun.

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Oct 7, 2016

    While Nightwing makes for a more tense issue of the series as the walls seem to close in on the Bat-family, the attempt to up the stakes falls flat due to it just being a larger monster Read Full Review

    Even with consistently good art, uneven pacing and a lack of focus has made Night of Monster Men a mediocre story. Read Full Review
