  1. This has been awesome since Hurwitz took over in issue #10.

  2. I’m lovin’ it!

  3. I’ve enjoyed the whole run. I thought White Rabbit from the early issues was one of the best new bat-villains in a while.

  4. Wow, this was an awesome issue I thought. I love all the Scarecrow origin stuff. This is turning into becoming a very good Scarecrow tale. And Finch is still one of my favorite artists.

  5. I was not crazy about this book at first. It seemed totally unfocused, just throwing as many characters in as possible. The past few issues have been great…very dark, great art. I am really liking where this is going.

  6. This new origin for Scarecrow is pretty messed up -and creepy. David Finch’s artwork is a good fit for the story, despite a couple of awkward faces here and there.

  7. Okay, if I were to rate the Bat books it would be: 1: Batman, 2: Batman and Robin, 3: Batman Inc., 4: Batman the Dark Knight, and 5: Detective Comics. However, with this new team of Hurwitz/Finch, the Dark Knight could be moving up the ladder quickly. And since Detective is also getting a new creative team, it’s a great time to be a Bat fan!
