The Riddler: Secrets In The Dark

3.6/5

Critic Rating

A masked vigilante is on the loose, murdering notorious super-villains all over Gotham City… and all clues point to the suspect being the Caped Crusader himself, Batman. Now, with a target on his head, the charming yet deadly Edward Nygma, better known as The Riddler, is forced to break out of Arkham Asylum and team up with the Caped Crusader. The unlikely duo must solve the mystery before they too, become victims. The Riddler: Secrets in the Dark stars Hasan Minhaj, Colman Domingo, and Gina Rodriguez and was produced by Phantom Four & Wolf at the Door in association with Blue Ribbon Content and DC for Spotify. © & ™ DC

Gregg Stockdale • The Podcast Geek Oct 15, 2023

"The music and sound design is great, and the voice acting is very good indeed, despite the scenery chewing in parts. Whether intentionally or not this really reminds me of the radio dramas of the 30’s and 40’s. Apart from the bad language. I listened to the entire series in one go and was left feeling unsatisfied. There was no real depth to any of the characters and it felt like they were only there to advance the plot, or die. This was the biggest let down."

Michael Bergonzi • Audio Drama Reviews Oct 14, 2023

"The obvious difference between Glover and Minhaj is that Glover is white. Hasan is brown. This Riddler brings this up often as a way to invoke white fragility in someone he doesn’t want to deal with...the journey is more cohesive than “Batman: Unburied.” “Riddler: Secrets in the Dark” fulfills the promise to fans of getting a new character added to the world of Batman and DC Comics as a whole."
