Praise for Batman – One Bad Day: The Riddler:

“The craft on display here from King and Gerads is undeniable. These two are a well-oiled machine together, and the extra-long page count of this issue gives them both some space to stretch their legs.”—The Bea 

“As origin stories go, it’s frightening.”—Newsarama

“Eisner Award winners Tom King and Mitch Gerads team up once more to tell a terrifying tale of Edward Nygma in Batman – One Bad Day: The Riddler #1.”—CBR

“An excellent start for the One Bad Day series, as Tom King and Mitch Gerads deliver a compelling psychological thriller about one of the greatest villains the Dark Knight has confronted.”—AIPT

Batman – One Bad Day: The Riddler kicks off a series of one-shots focused on Batman’s villains and it’s one hell of a start. By the end, not only do we get a better sense of the character’s motivations but also a whole new outlook.”—Graphic Policy

“This time, it’s not a game of getting caught. It’s cold, it’s calculated, and it makes for a glorious story.”—GateCrashers
