Not the best. The person who is the villain or "New Batman" should not be. Just not the best story you can find.

This book starts with letting us know that Batman (Bruce Wayne) has died. Without Batman, Gotham City has gone completely insane. Nightwing, Robin and the rest of the Bat Family have been taking control, but every time they get to the crime scene there’s a note saying, “I am Batman.” They know that this person is not the real Batman.

People who enjoy DC Batman and a lot of takedowns (‘takedowns’ are ways of knocking people out quickly) - this is definitely the book for you! This book will seem interesting to those who enjoy epic fight scenes or like mysterious things happening in books. If you’re not interested in that stuff, then this will be boring.

Disappointing, lots of hype and didn't really go anywhere or have the character involvement implied.

Excellent trade paperback, with a good transition between the apparent death of Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson taking the mantle of the Batman.

I wouldn't say it's one of my favorites, but it was still a very good comic book. Fast paced story, good characters, and awesome action scenes. I would give this one a 7.5/10 pretty intense and a little bloody too.
