Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is your go-to book.”—Entertainment Weekly 

Detective Comics is head-spinningly spectacular from top to bottom.”—MTV Geek

“An exciting take on Bats and Joker as they play cat and mouse through the streets of Gotham City, and a haunting last page that is extremely killer. That alone will have most readers coming back next month.”—USA Today

Meet the Author

Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the eighth grade, and he hasn't looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico's The Elementals, he has contributed to Marvel's X-Force and Image's Spawn: Bloodfeud as well as writing and illustrating his own titles Silke, The Tenth and F5, which led him into work in Hollywood. After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on TEEN TITANS, Daniel went on to draw THE FLASH before landing his dream job pencilling BATMAN. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy.

Tony S. Daniel is a great artist. Unfortunately, Daniel can't write Batman and DC just keeps on letting him. Daniel writes the character of Batman with all the attributes that no one wants from Batman. Daniel makes Batman a sadistic terrorist instead of a frightening symbol of justice. Avoid.

Batman and joker... no wait batman and penguin. Nope batman and a slew of new villains? Wait Alan strange's son? And reporter love interest for bruce. It's not easy to follow at all and does have some mischevious moments and dark twists, but not enough for me to be excited in the end. Tje characters remain steong and true but don't overcome how jumpy it is. Volume 2 is out in early 2013 hopefully this one gets better.

This isn't the worst new 52 Batman storyline yet but somewhat confusing new enemies new characters and you can get lost but its still pretty good

Liking some of these Batman comics. The art is either pretty good to just good. Other than that, these are pretty good reads.

It's a good book, but it didn't seem to get into the Batman character. Some times I felt like I didn't know what was going on.
