Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Dick Grayson, formerly Robin, has taken on Bruce Wayne’s cowl and penthouse apartment, but struggles to feel at home in either. Though he now patrols Gotham as Batman, Grayson still shines through the cape and cowl: at the end of one of their signature rooftop meetings, Commissioner Gordon turns around to find Batman uncharacteristically still there. As much as the story is about Dick Grayson as Batman, though, the real intrigue involves Commissioner Gordon’s family. The city is besieged by seemingly unrelated attacks from gangsters and supervillains. At the same time, Gordon’s long-lost, troubled son reappears as a changed man. Snyder’s story expertly prolongs the tension until the disturbing end, when readers finally learn the connections between the truly terrifying bad guy and the acts of gruesome violence. The segments featuring Jock’s dynamic depiction of supervillains and gangsters contrast nicely with the splashy, saturated colors and heavy lines in Francavilla’s chapters about the Gordon family. This darkly riveting story with gritty atmospherics is sure to please. --Sarah Hunter


“The art is beautiful. The writing is terrifyingly spectacular.” —IGN

“This is going to be one of those Batman stories I remember for a very long time, as a perfect marriage of story and art.”—iFanboy

“Scott Snyder, with rotating artists Jock and Francisco Francavilla, has solidified the title as the place for serious crime fiction in the Bat-universe.”—The A.V. Club

“Detective Comics follows the tried-and-true formula that has been working for decades, yet it also adds layers Batman with some much-needed character flaws. Not to mention, there's a heaping splash of atmospheric art by Jock.”—Complex Magazine

“Scott Snyder is, simply put, doing a career-making job…this is just killer stuff here….If you’re only reading one Batman book, it should be this one, folks.” —MTV Geek

"The best Batman arc in years."—Omnivoracious
