Scott Snyder's writing is, amazing as it is dark. The artwork is great as well. If your a fan of Batman, this is an absolute must read. This is one of this years best graphic novels!

Black Mirror is an amazingly fun book with near perfect dialogue, and a story to match. In this story Dick Grayson, (the first Robin,) has become Batman. The story has a few mini-arcs and one long arc. It revolves arround Dick, Jim Gordon, and Barbra Gordon for the most part. It's a very well written story. A must have for any fan of modern Batman comics.

Black Mirror is literally one of the best Batman stories to date. Snyder brought in a terrific horror element that I have not seen in a Batman book in some time. Since this book was written with Dick Grayson in the cape and cowl, the story stayed true to the character of Dick Grayson who can sometimes be written poorly. It collects a year's worth of stories that brought in new and old characters. If you have not bought this book yet then you are doing a disservice to yourself especially if your are either a Batman or Dick Grayson fan.

It was a decent book, but I wish it was Bruce Wayne as Batman and not Dick Grayson. Hes better as Nightwing and just isn't fit to be Batman.

One of the latest books added to Batman's seemingly endless library, "Black Mirror" reads more like a horror story than a comic book. That's a good thing, though. The story is fresh, exciting and reeeeally dark. I only have a few complaints. First of all, I know most people love Jock's artwork, but I really don't and find it to be just a poorly executed attempt to match what Dave McKean did on " Arkham Asylum". It does have it's highpoints though. The other thing is that this Batman is not Bruce, it's Richard Grayson. As a veteran fan, I can't really accept that. However, the book is by and large excellent. It has one of the best backups in years, with amazing artwork in that by Rafael Albuquerque, who illustrated Snyder's vampire story appropriately titled "American Vampire". So, in all, this story is a great one that once again proves that Scott Snyder is quite possibly the next Jeph Loeb.
