The art is a bit iffy in a couple of places, but overall there’s a fantastic dreary gothic atmosphere that embraces the grotesque ness of life and death. Loving this already.

There’s nothing bad, but there’s nothing that makes it good either. What should have been an exciting start to the first new run on the title since Rebirth started is just another mediocre Batman comic.

It may have been a long wait, but it was absolutely worth it. Batman: Creature Of The Night may not be about actual Batman, but it’s a tale all fans of the Dark Knight should read. Possibly my favourite Batman comic of the 21st century.
