--USA Today "This is one of the best comics of the week."
--The New York Times
"[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."
"Scott Snyder, already the company's greatest asset over the last four weeks, spins a stack of plates immediately.... Too often Batman comics focus heavily on the hero persona ... Snyder sets up equal amounts of conflict for both Wayne's public and private personas."
--Time Out Chicago
"A stunning debut.... Snyder knows these characters, sets up an intriguing mystery, and delivers some action that Capullo realizes stunningly. This is definitely in the top rank of the revamp.
--The Onion AV Club
"Hits all the right notes. I enjoyed the living hell out of this." - io9
"Bruce Wayne is a badass. The end."
--IGN, 9.5 Rating
"A+. Incredible tone and enough twists, turns and character appearances to keep us hooked."
"There's enough here, kept at a high enough level to make it interesting and viable across media and digestible enough for even the most novice DC Universe reader.... Score one for DC and score one for Snyder and Capullo in finding a new fan."
