Review:

“Intriguing.” – USA Today

“Powerful effects and sharp characterization.” – Publishers Weekly

“Watching [Robin] struggle to reconcile his mother's cold-blooded anger with his father's compassion and nobility (and not a little outright arrogance from both sides of the family tree) has been one of the highlights of the comics reading experience in recent years.” – Maxim

“This is the kind of Batman story I like to read: an actual mystery with an emotional hook.” – The Onion AV Club

“The storytelling is crisp, punchy and clean—in both words and art—even when they both get pretty dark. I think that's what I loved most about this book, the way the two complimented each other so well.” – Time Out Chicago

“Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason are knocking it out issue after issue.” – Wired.com

“Rock solid.” – IGN

 “A fascinating story about a very complicated relationship.” – Newsarama

“Tomasi and Gleason have upped their collective game.” – iFanboy
