    Batman: Fortress releases one of its strongest issues to date, with Whitta and Robertson continuing the journey of the Dark Knight’s ragtag team attempting to discover the fate of the Man of Steel. Where this issue truly shines is in its dynamic between Batman and Lex Luthor, with the two great minds on opposite sides of heroism having a delicious dichotomy. (…) Fortress is firing on all engines with this latest issue and both Whitta and Robertson are as well.

    The Story: An entertaining story that has some great character tension throughout. The dynamic between Batman and Luthor is great and they have some interesting banter. The story takes some interesting twists and turns as well culminating in a reveal that caught me by surprise before ending on a great cliffhanger.
    The Art: Robertson delivers some great art in the issue. The look of the fortress is beautiful and I love the details sprinkled throughout the issue.

    The penultimate issue of this high-intensity alien-invasion Elseworlds is a bit of a mixed bag, same as the series always was. It sometimes tries a little too hard to be edgy, but mixed in there is some genuinely great DC writing. (…) With only one issue to go and a surprising cliffhanger that sets up the finale, there is still a lot to explore. It’s an odd story, but its Luthor is perfectly manipulative, fuzzy Lantern D’ayl is a breakout character, and this is the best material we’ve gotten out of Emiko Queen in years. I definitely won’t mind seeing Whitta do more DC work down the line, but first he’s got to stick the landing here.

    Great artwork and interesting conflict get Batman: Fortress back on track from a bit of a lull in earlier issues. You’ll be rewarded for sticking with the title until the end. Excited to see how the series wraps up.

    This was a solid penultimate issue with a cliffhanger that sets the stage for a memorable finale.

    The pacing in this issue and the dialogue (including the “final words” between Batman and Luthor) are very strong as the intensity builds and revelations are discovered.

    This isn’t the worst comic I’ve ever read but it’s possibly the most “whatever.” What little interest I did have at any point has evaporated and I’m left looking forward to the end so I can move on and never think about it again. If I wasn’t assigned this book, I would have dropped it after issue one or two and saved myself the frustration. Since that isn’t an option, here’s my consensus: please read Detective Comics instead.
