Great submitted by jaegerla on July 29, 2009, 12:26pm My original review was all wrong. This is great.

batman submitted by nasuaada on July 25, 2011, 6:04pm batman is one of the best superheroes ever

Dark Indeed submitted by ejk on July 7, 2012, 12:00am A look into the future of batman, where the spectre of nuclear war hangs over the U.S. and the public has grown sick of superheroes. Similar to Watchmen, which was also published in 1986.

Near perfect submitted by kernelenchilada on June 19, 2014, 1:49pm This is the quitessential Batman.

Set in the future, an old a decrepit Bruce Wayne dons the cowl once again to rid his beloved Gotham City of the terrorist gang the Mutants!

He finds support in an unlikely place, with the teenage girl Grace Kelly standing at his side as the new Robin!

We also see the return of some of his most classic foes.

This, Watchmen, Blade Runner, and Back to the Future Part II form the epitome of the term 80s future

Excellent series on TV. submitted by tbbrown76@yahoo.com on July 13, 2014, 11:53am Adam West was awesomely bad.

Overhyped submitted by dntanzer on August 10, 2018, 12:33pm It was a solid batman comic, but too many people have told me this was THE batman comic. I don't think it fully lived up to the hype, but I would still recommend it to batman/dc fans.

Classic Bats submitted by majean on August 16, 2018, 8:28pm This is one of the classic Batman tales.
