after issue." -Wired.com
"Powerful effects and sharp characterization." -Publishers Weekly

"This is the kind of Batman story I like to read: an actual mystery with an emotional hook." -The Onion/ A.V. Club
"The storytelling is crisp, punchy and clean-in both words and art-even when they both get pretty dark. I think that's what I loved most about this book, the way the two complimented each other so well." -Time Out Chicago
