True happiness begins in the heart. Our memories and emotions can play tricks on us, though, and divert one's reality into something completely different. The Batman Who Laughs has based his entire worldview on this very concept, and it is in this moment that he must finally confront the one man who stands in his way, the one man who could complete or halt his plan...the last Bruce Wayne. It is here, on the home turf of Wayne Manor, that Bruce relives the happiest moment of his life-the moment he became the Batman Who Laughs. Will Batman be able to outthink the Dark Multiverse version of himself and stop his most sinister end? Or will the ori more

    At this point in the DC time line, I am pretty shook. The last time I felt this obligated to buy any and all comics was when Superman died, and Batman was broken by Bane. DC is well on its way to returning to its number one comic line ranking as they have all the right pieces put together. You would do well to buy all of The Batman Who Laughs issues along with The Grim Knight one shot. You'll be glad you did! Read Full Review

    AIPT - JJ Travers Jun 12, 2019

    I absolutely love to find myself in a situation where I can't imagine the hero walking away, let alone being victorious. Maybe this time the bad guy wins. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Jun 12, 2019

    Overall, The Batman Who Laughs #6is a high-octane adventure that isn't afraid to be downright creepy. The horror elements are perfectly implemented and I cannot speak highly enough of Cipriano's lettering in this issue. Snyder has crafted a genuine masterpiece with this story and knowing there is only one issue left is bittersweet. Needless to say, I highly recommend The Batman Who Laughs for every Batman fan as well as anyone itching for a horror story. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Jun 12, 2019

    Jock continues to knock it out of the park with his beautiful artwork in this issue. The tone of Snyders story is perfectly matched with the style Jock brings to the art in this series and this issue especially. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 14, 2019

    The ending of this book is a cliffhanger of course. It's as rousing as can be. Jock does his best work here and that's saying something. He and Snyder have created an incredible book. Let's see how the last issue goes, but this could be considered a classic if it ends well. We shall see. Read Full Review

    The Batman Who Laughs #6 throws everything at the kitchen sink as it evens the playing field and answers a lot of questions except the big ones. It prepares us for a finale that promises to challenge what we think is going to happen. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jun 12, 2019

    As a huge horror and Batman fan, this comic pushes just the right buttons for me. The more I think about this issue"the underlying themes, the visuals, the pacing and the characters"the more I'm starting to appreciate just how well this is put together. Snyder, Jock, Baron and Cipriano are all fulfilling crucial roles in the making of this comic book, and the result is a cohesive, rock-solid horror show. Highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Jun 22, 2019

    Batman Who Laughs #6 is a beautifully done issue with amazing art from Jock, colors from Baron, and letters from Cipriano. And what may seem as a filler is redeemed as the Batman Who Laughs unveils his plans for our Batman. Its definitely a stunning issue you need to pick up if you havent already! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jun 12, 2019

    The issue is a solid one leaving me excited to see where the finale takes us and wondering how Batman will win in the end. It's a prime example of both Snyder and Jock being at the top of their game. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jun 12, 2019

    With an issue left in this miniseries, I'm seriously curious to see if Snyder and Jock can fit this entire conclusion into one issue. I guess that's why they added a seventh issue to this miniseries. This was gorgeous and creepy, and will make for an evergreen story. Read Full Review

    Horror DNA - James Ferguson Jun 19, 2019

    The Batman Who Laughs is a tense and frightening read, pushing Batman farther than ever. He's had his back broken. He's been shot through time. He's lost his mind. This is something far worse than all of those things. This is fighting himself in more ways than one and coming up short. It's realizing that despite all the preparation he's put into everything, he might not have enough to save the day after all. That's a terror that comes from deep down and rattles the bones.

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Jun 11, 2019

    Overall, the Batman Who Laughs beings to come to close in a way that really makes you wonder how will Batman find his way out of this one, which is always a way I like to find myself going into the final issue of a series, especially a Batman book. Scott Snyder seems to be having a lot of fun telling this story of putting Batman through the ringer, coupled with Jocks art, I'm having a heck of a time reading it, and cant wait for the conclusion to hopefully continue to impress.

    Major Spoilers - Robert Mammone Jun 13, 2019

    Once Snyder gets the bit between his teeth, he doesn't let go. With all the grace of a hippopotamus performing Swan Lake, The Batman Who Laughs #6 crashes into the comic's scene. It's fun, it's shallow, it's gripping and it's hugely entertaining. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Rick Lopez Jun 12, 2019

    With one last issue left after a seventh was tacked on after 5 issues of nothing really happening, Snyder and Jock take their bow with the titular character and leave room for Joshua Williamson to make something interesting out of it on his upcoming series later this year. With no end in sight, the character who has far exceeded his welcome will continue on within the DC Universe at large even after his own mini-series comes to a close. Read Full Review
