    With a shocking ending, Black Bat remains a fast paced story which allows you to see the potential badass he can be when pushed to that point. While you could say that what happens is predictable, it was all in the execution which made this something believable when in other cases writers might have made this feel cliche. This stories progression is on point and something that both current fans of Black Bat and new fans can come to enjoy from Brian Buccellato's approach to the character. Read Full Review

    It seems we've reached a turning point with The Black Bat. Things have been set up and now some of the answers are starting to come out. The action takes a backseat so we can get some more story beats, but at least the story is interesting. Black Bat has taken the character in a bold, new direction. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joey Caswell Sep 5, 2013

    Overall, the Black Bat may not appear to vastly differ from the many other pulp titles currently being produced. However, as always, it is best to follow the artists as opposed to the characters In this case, this philosophy has paid off given Buccellatos excellent sense of pacing and overall story-telling. There are other books that may be somewhat similar in terms of background, but the creative team on Black Bat know how to make a pulp book that stands out. Although it would be great to see the story progress a bit more swiftly, each issue has something new to add to this characters story. Read Full Review
