Impostors is a four-part Batman storyline written by David Hine and illustrated by Scott McDaniel. This arc was published in Detective Comics directly after Hine's Arkham Reborn and followed by the beginning of Snyder's Batman in The Black Mirror. The storyline features a villain named Winslow Heath who starts a gang war between two rival gangs

Batman must stop mass violence caused by an impostor posing as The Joker  . The book is a graphic retelling of the experience of Winslow Heath, a victim of the Joker. The encounter caused Heath severe pain, loss, and hatred towards Batman.

When comic books didn't need to look dark to be dark. This only solidifies my belief that David Hine is a genius. A masterful weaver of the darker Batman tales. Batman trying out Joker Juice in the beginning was such an entertaining scene but hid some vaguely morbid implications well. It feels so much like B:TAS in some ways. It's fun and dark at the same time without being glossed over by grit. It's just a superbly written Batman story with some excellent nostalgic art to boot. I only hope he'll have a slot whenever we get a 3rd round of Joker's Asylum, because he would be great at that.

Detective Comics: Batman: Imposters. A variation of The Joker drug is causing users to suffer violent mental breakdowns. Collected from DETECTIVE COMICS

A warped variation of the Joker drug has caused those who use it to embrace anarchy and chaos. With riots cropping up throughout Gotham, the citizens are divided into two gangs: one led by a Batman imposter trying to bring law and order back to the streets, the other by a Joker imposter out to punish the innocent and set Gotham ablaze. Can the real Batman stop an entire city?

I'm in complete agreement with the previous reviewer: this is badly written and boringly drawn with little if any bearing on Batman continuity (despite having originally been published in Detective Comics #867-870). In fact, I'd be hard pressed to even call it a story. What this is instead is a drawn-out advertisement for WB Games' upcoming Gotham City Imposters online video game. If you enjoy the game (which goes into Beta Oct. 5) you *might* enjoy this book, which *slightly* fleshes out the game's backstory. But regular comic book readers looking for a good Batman story should probably stay away from this one.

This book is a lot of things: it's poorly written, it's badly drawn, it's boring, and it's poorly executed. In a nutshell, it's utter garbage. David Hine took a pretty good idea, Gotham's citizens taking up arms as Batmen and Jokers and turning Gotham into a warzone, and it did it so wrong that the idea needs at least five years to cool off before the stink of this book can go away. It's bad.

It's not required reading for the continuity and they make no reference to Batman outside of the cowl. It could be Dick or Bruce but the costume isn't drawn like either of theirs! Batman isn't distinctive, the villain is juvenile, and everything comes together to make a stew of crap. There's nothing in this book that I could imagine anyone liking.

I totally disagree with the other (all very similar) reviews of this Batman. I ALMOST didn't buy it because of all the negative reviews. In fact, I put it off for a few buys, but my curiosity was so piqued, that I finally got it, and I think it's a great story. Not perfect, but NOT "garbage," etc. It's a great idea, whether it came from a video game, or whatever, I've no idea. Jist of the story is flash mobs of jokers vs flash mobs of batmen; all "organized" and progessively more deadly. The REAL Batamn is trying to get to the bottom of it. The artwork? Not great; kinda blocky and cartoony, but, again, NOT garbage. As good as half the rest of the artwork in comics today. I'd say that if you like Batman, this could be a fun read. For me, it was a totally fresh idea as well. I have a lot of Batman comics and TPBs, and this beats a lot of them handily.

This graphic novel originally published as four issues of Detective Comics is one of the worst Batman collected stories ever.The idea of an impostor joker turning citizens of Gotham City into Jokers has some promise but it is so poorly executed that it is just crap.It reads more like a video game than a written story.No characterization or context or plotting of any kind Even McDaniels art is bad.I read this in the public library instead of buying it and even then it was a waste of time but glad I didnt waste money on this crap.Avoid even if you are a Batman completist

This comic is not horrible but there's definitely better Batman comics out there. It was a cool premise of people within Gotham waging war as pseudo Batman and Jokerz but the dialogue was weak and the story seemed to jump about randomly with no transitions. What this comic does have though is a very interesting question to ponder about Batman's existence.
Shaktit
This honestly the worst Batman comic I've ever payed for. Boring, predictable, and cliche, it really is just a video game advertisement.
