    Solid issue, and the Black Bat is becoming a character that you can really enjoy when he comes into the role we expect him to. The hues of the book really do make it feel like its a pulp story and that much I do come to like when I read this book. Doesn't try too hard, yet is still convincing with those differences.

    Black Bat #3 is another great outing in Buccellato's updated version of the Black Bat. This issue really tightens things up. It feels like we're starting to see some forward movement instead of a heavy emphasis on the origin story we saw bits and pieces of in the first outings. There's still a lot of questions left unanswered, but #3 really moves the story forward. Read Full Review

    THE BLACK BAT might be a pulp revival, but it's appropriately modern despite the old-school grit. An enjoyably interesting cast of characters and a consistent underlying threat keep things moving forward, and the Black Bat is a flawed but honest hero who's easy to like. We're teed up for heavy action in the next issue, and I'm sticking around to see what happens with that bomb. Read Full Review

    With glimpses at who Tony Quinn was, is, and can be, there is a wealth of storyline left to build on. Cliquet's canvas is as vast and opportunistic as Buccellato's plot. Together, they are going to make The Black Bat one of the best series on the market. Read Full Review

    Overall, Black Bat is something that Dynamite should be proud of, even among the horde of other classic pulp characters in their stable. Brian Buccellato is a fantastic writer who truly understands how to properly pace a comic book. His interpretation of this vintage hero is ideal for the world of modern superheroes. The artistic team of Ronan Cliquet and Mat Lopes also really seem to understand how to properly convey the feel of this characters story, as well as pulp action and mystery in general. If youre wondering which of the many pulp action options to choose from for your pull list, Black Bat should definitely be at the top. Read Full Review
