  1. This stuff is awesome.

  2. After last issue with that Incredible Ben Templesmith art, this quickly became my second favourite Bat title =D

  3. This issue contained one of the best Batman stories I’ve read in a long time.

    I’ve been tracking down some back issues of the original ‘Pre 52’ ‘Legends’, which was a childhood favorite book of mine. My favorites back then were ‘Freakout’ by Garth Ennis, ‘Haunted Knight’ by Loeb & Sale and ‘Clay’ by Alan Grant, but I’ve recently rediscovered ‘Snow’ (with art by the wonderfully talented and sadly missed Seth Fisher) and ‘Hot House’ (with art by P. Craig Russell, one of my absolute favorite artists). Anyway, I saw Steve Niles credited on this one and decided to pick it up (having enjoyed Ben Templesmith’s art on the previous issue).

    It was absolutely flawless.

    This story cut to the core of what Batman is all about and why he does what he does. The art was excellent and uplifting despite maintaining a gritty, urban feel. To me, this story had the same effect on me that ‘Ghosts’ had when I was 12.

    This was a great Batman holiday story and, really cheered me up when I was feeling low (I’d just had a major online series rejected).

    • I have the first 20 issues of the old Legends of the Dark Knight series too. I loved them. I eventually want to get them all.

    • That’s a fine and worthwhile endeavor. When I think about how many landmark Bat-tales spun out of that series…It’s absolutely amazing. The talent on that series was phenomenal, I think all my favorite Bat-writers worked on it at some point: Denny O’Neil, Grant Morrison, Doug Moench, Chuck Dixon, Jeph Loeb, Mike W. Barr…Its quite a list.

  4. I wasn’t going to buy any more of this series but I had the first two and it was a slow week so I picked this one up too. The art was good but the story didn’t do anything special for me. I’m probably off this series for good.

  5. This story was awesome. Letters to Batman is an awesome idea for a story. Really cool how it played out too.
