Review quote

The dual narratives that Snyder and Higgins weave together mesh so fluidly that Gates of Gotham becomes one hell of an informative page-turner. -- IGN "This is a great tale that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat wondering what is in store for them at the turn of the next page...I would recommend all fans of the Dark Knight and his many friends to check this five issue mini-series out. It definitely has everything you could want in a true Batman tale."-- YAHOO! Associated Content "Gates of Gotham" is a must read!"--CBR "With GATES OF GOTHAM, Snyder delivers the same top notch mystery and mayhem he has so masterfully delivered in DETECTIVE, by focusing on a mystery and blood feuds as old as Gotham itself...Another phenomenal work from a talent that is on the same stratospheric rise to greatness as the likes of Geoff Johns a few years ago."--Ain't It Cool News
