Review quote

"The art is beautiful. The writing is terrifyingly spectacular." --IGN"This is going to be one of those Batman stories I remember for a very long time, as a perfect marriage of story and art."--iFanboy

"Scott Snyder, with rotating artists Jock and Francisco Francavilla, has solidified the title as the place for serious crime fiction in the Bat-universe."--The A.V. Club

"Detective Comics follows the tried-and-true formula that has been working for decades, yet it also adds layers Batman with some much-needed character flaws. Not to mention, there's a heaping splash of atmospheric art by Jock."--Complex Magazine

"Scott Snyder is, simply put, doing a career-making job...this is just killer stuff here....If you're only reading one Batman book, it should be this one, folks." --MTV Geek

"The best Batman arc in years."--Omnivoracious
