A glorious start to a series. Two new superheroes start fighting to save Gotham, and Batman takes on an apprentice. It moves fast, has good humor, and sets up a lot of things... although, there are certainly some things that are off. Good writing, good story, interesting setup, although the two new heroes are a little basic and almost a little culty... One of the heroes has some stuff happen to them and then sort of suddenly is up and running, but comics have to move fast, so it's fine. This is a great start to the series, read it, and enjoy!

Pretty solid start to the series!

The plot wasn't anything astonishing or innovative, but I thought it was engaging and focused. Same thing goes with the characters. While I didn't think this book was anything outstanding, I don't really have any criticisms. I enjoyed it, plain and simple. Will say, the only reason I'm giving it a 3. 5 and not 3 stars if the writing for Alfred. Gotta love that sarcastic humour and the part where Alfred, and it’s become one of my favourite Alfred moments.
3.5/5 stars, pretty good foundation, hope it only gets better from here!

I really wanted to enjoy this new Volume #1, as it begins the era of a new Batman creative team with King/Finch writing and penciling. And while the art was good (but not great), the writing was truly mediocre and uninspiring. I was tempted to give this 2 and a half stars, but frankly when you are putting out a flagship comic book title like Batman you need to bring your "A Game" to stand with other great storylines. So I give this just two stars and am slightly disappointed.

This story wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either and it was entirely forgettable. In fact, after I finished reading it I wondered if I should have read another book instead or watched a movie, or something like that. It was that bland. I feel like the editor or chief creative officer at DC should've sat the creative team down and asked them to come up with something more unique, emotional, more memorable.

With few words and a somewhat preposterous premise Tom King directs the Bat against two super powered newcomers who use their powers dangerously in a literal fashion. What's as exciting is where the story leads after its conclusion. A good first act for Mr. King.

This one gets a resounding meh. It had great moments, but it never really seems to get up to speed on anything in particular. I'll defiantly keep reading though, King has potential in here to take the story somewhere interesting.
