"This is a clever and sophisticated Batman--with a dark, edgy, and
thought-provoking narrative ably abetted by Capullo's pulpish,
detailed art. Readers will find it hard to put down."-Publishers
"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
