"Amazing. This book is a visual treat."--The New York Times
"Simply terrific."--Scripps Howard News Service"The caped crusader channels the gravelly paranoia of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns while a desperate father working for the Joker lends the story its moral weight and inevitable humanitarian payoff."--Paste Magazine"Absolutely exquisite... I'd be more than happy to add reading "Batman: Noel" and watching it to my yearly yuletide festivities."--Yahoo! Movies"Bermejo has simply created an instant classic with BATMAN NOEL that is larger than any holiday."--Ain't It Cool News"Surprising, new, gorgeous to look at, and also incredibly heartfelt. So you know, the perfect stocking stuffer."--MTV GEEK"[Bermejo]'s incorporating his unique style to create a fresh kind of Batman tale, lending it a distinctive flavor that would be impossible for any other artist to replicate."--IGN"More than just a regular graphic novel."--UGO"Gorgeously illustrated."--io9"More than a clever entertainment, and does more than just prove that Bermejo is a fine writer." --The Morton Report"Some artists like Bermejo seem to be regarded as having objectively beautiful illustrations. Bermejo is able to take characters we know and love and give them a sinister and realistic twist that makes them pop out of the pages. Batman Noel is worth picking up for the artwork alone."--Bloody_Disgusting.com, Pick of the Week"Gives the classic story the dark edge that's inherent in anything set in Gotham City."--Newsarama"Lush."--Comic Book Resources
