Editorial Reviews

“ A+. The hero''s got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new to the Dark Knight.” — USA Today   “This is one of the best comics of the week.” — The New York Times   “[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series’ best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve.” — Entertainment Weekly   “Scott Snyder, already the company''s greatest asset over the last four weeks, spins a stack of plates immediately….
