  1. Picked up this book for Alex Maleev with no.22 and really enjoyed it! Can’t wait for this one!

  2. Picking this up cause last issue, Ghostmann said it was awesome and I believed him. Turned out he was right! Go track last issue if you haven’t and enjoy a kick-ass yarn!

    • Bro, of course I was right! 😉

      Seriously though last issue took me by surprise and I’m back on board. This series is filling the void in the Bat world created by the main series retelling his origin, Batman & (whoever) still dealing with the loss of Damain, and Batman Inc ending.

      Batman: The Dark Knight is delivering (for one issue at least) good old fashion Batman stories.

    • On and also, not sure if you read my review Batgirl last week, but you might want to check out that series as well – again I was surprised to find when I randomly read it last week just how good it was!

    • I actually read your review and found it intriguing, but alas I am reading so much comics at the moment that I can’t afford to pick up strays at my LCS to try out new series. 🙁 BUT, I might eventually check it out on comixology when the price drops a bit! 🙂

  3. I was pleasantly surprised by last issue (thanks to ghostmann’s review). Love me some fun little Bat-stories.

  4. Also, seems like Clayface is a hot villain, eh? Jumping from Tec’ to Batman and now Dark Knight! Anyone see a solid future for him?

    • “Solid future?” Nice pun. 🙂 but to take a stab at your question – I think Snyder really gave Clayface a shot in the arm and made him a fun to read villain – a characterization that seems to have ignited everyone’s found memories of the Batman: TAS version of this shapeshifting rouge.

      And hey, was Clayface in recent issues of TEC? Why can’t I remember that?

    • Ha, you got my joke! 🙂

      Yeah, Snyder did well with Karlo and seems to have inspired those around him.

      Can’t remember the exact numbers, but they are pretty recent issues of ‘Tec by Layman.

    • First three issues of Layman’s ‘Tec was a very well-written Clayface and Poison Ivy 3 story. This was his first time in the New 52 (? I think) and actually liked it better than Snyder’s story. Haven’t read this to compare. Might read it digital someday.

  5. Hurwitz has been delivering on this book since he took over. I’ve been happy with the series since.

  6. Not a fan of the way Maleev draws Clayface. The story wasn’t very interesting either.
