Batman has deployed one of his most powerful weapons in the hunt for the mysterious bomber plaguing Gotham City…but it’s not the Batmobile, the Batwing, or even the batarangs. It’s Bruce Wayne! As Bruce investigates the courtroom bombing that nearly left Deb Donovan’s daughter a splatter on the wall, could there be…love in the air?
But Why Tho?There's too much to love about this issue, and I can't say enough about it. I'm a committed Gotham Girl fan now, thanks to Grace, and have been reunited in my old love for Gotham, Batman, and Bruce Wayne, thanks to Tamaki and Shammas. Good gosh, buy this. Buy several, pass them out, and spread the word.
Lyles Movie FilesThere's some nice twists and character beats that give The Seven a layered, crime-drama feel. It's the kind of story Tamaki probably should have been doing all along and this collaboration with Shammas is resulting in a compelling and engaging mystery.
COMICONBruce Wayne takes a bigger part in this ongoing Riddler mystery, as ‘Detective Comics' lives up to its name with some good old-fashioned character developing detective stories. Such a fantastic series that has captured some of the best street-level energy with the Bat family that we've seen in quite a few years.
The Super Powered FancastReis delivers some fantastic art filled with great action, character and mood. The tone of the art perfectly captures the mood and tone of the plot.
Geek DadCould Riddler be becoming some sort of twisted vigilante going after the ones the justice system let get away? It's an interesting turn for him, although he only appears briefly so it's hard to judge his motivation so far. Overall, it's a strong use of the character as he constantly keeps us guessing.
Batman on Film
ComicBook.comDetective Comics is laying out a real mystery for Batman to solve, one that seems to be roping in both allies and enemies.
Comic WatchIf Detective Comics #1059 established the Riddlers scheme of sowing chaos through improbable criminals, chapter #1060 follows Batmans investigation into his foils endgame. The issue is largely made up of rising action until a legitimately surprising conclusion. Where that development takes the story will determine the success of the wider arc, but for now readers will have to settle for a competently crafted Batman comic.

Dark Knight NewsDetective Comics #1060 felt like a palate cleanser compared to previous issues, so it's not the comic you're going to tell your grandkids about… but it's still definitely one worth reading!

The Batman UniverseAs we come closer to the end of Mariko Tamaki's run on Detective Comics, I can't help but think that there was more to the story she wanted to tell. It's unfortunate we won't get it.
Batman-NewsWhile this issue builds on the mystery started in the last, it generally feels lacking. I want more investment in the characters, more Riddler, and more of Batman and Bruce actually getting answers. Instead, much of that is told, and the story almost seems to fly by. Hopefully things will wrap up in a more satisfying way next month.
Weird Science DC ComicsI am unsure how this story became a mess after only two issues, but here we are. Detective Comics #1060 looks good, but that's the only positive. July can't come quick enough!
