an outstanding expansion of the graphic novel...Think of it as an intimate literary offering akin to novelizations of feature films wherein we're gifted with added layers of detail and emotional depth - SyFy a good read...the well-written prose provides another venue for fans of DC Comics to get their fix for their favorite characters. - Borg.com A very engaging book from start to finish that not only explores the world of Batman but is a successful re-imagining of a classic Dark Knight story that doesn't stray too far from the primary themes but rather, pays homage and builds upon this. - Impulse Gamer
