    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Dec 11, 2015

    This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal hits all the right notes. Lanzing and Kelly craft a script that gives us just enough insight into the Batman/Robin story happening in the past, along with a touch of the story happening with Harper and Grayson, but they keep the bulk of the issue invested in the most interesting and action oriented story currently taking place in the seriesRed Robin and Red Hood! The artwork byRoge Antonio, Geraldo Borges, and Allen Passalaqua delivers some eye-popping visuals (especially in the Red Robin scene mentioned above). Pasalaqua uses colors well throughout the issue to createdifferent vibes depending on the characters and situations – with Batman and Grayson/Robin in the past we see Batman brooding in the dark cave, and with Red Hood and Red Robin we see a lot of bright backgrounds and colors as they traverse the island and fight off their attackers. This issue delivers the laughs, the action, and the shark spray! Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 12, 2015

    Each group of characters is left in a quandary. Jason has escaped with a Tim Drake whos had Azrael put visions in his head. However, it appears that the effect is not unlike the Scarecrows fear toxin. Hes behaving quite similarly to how Dick Grayson was acting, including the Weve failed Bruce dialogue. Speaking of Bruce, it certainly appears that hes biting on Mothers offer, but I still believe we are looking at misdirection. Im thinking Bruces reasons for hiding the case from everyone is more about failure to stop Mother instead of Bruce throwing in with Mother. Lastly, it appears that Harper is about to find out more about her past, stuff of which she had no inkling. Next issue should provide some more answers. Read Full Review

    So, if the solid writing and artwork, the latter of which has consistently been a draw for this series, aren't enough, the questions raised should keep you coming back for more. How could they not? Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 14, 2015

    This issue isn't one of the better outings that Batman&Robin Eternal has had to offer, but it is far from the worst. While it raises all kinds of questions with continuity, utilizes unusual scenario builds, edits out worthwhile scenes, and has a general off kilter feeling when it comes to several character choices, it's got plenty of good action and humor throughout. If you don't dig too deep, you're bound to have a good time, but for those of us with a more unforgiving eye, I'd say you're going to have plenty to criticize. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Dec 16, 2015

    Batman and Robin Eternal #10 is at its best when someone is facing off with Azrael or Tim and Jason are quipping to one another, but what comes between feels fluffy. The pacing is very weak this issue both in terms of keeping the energy up and knowing where to transition and the character moments aren't frequent enough to balance that. Whether due to the lack of time to sit or the need to use the major beats as cliffhangers, issues of weekly series have a habit of being interesting additions to their stories that just don't excite. The issue does its job by making the New 52/DCYou version of Azrael seem impressive and interesting, enough to satisfy this old fan at least. But while it succeeds as a backdoor pilot for Azrael, with inconsistent art and writing, it's a merely decent issue of Batman and Robin Eternal. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 9, 2015

    As a whole, this issue felt a little better than the last issue due to more story developments, but otherwise not by much. The characterization seems hit and miss, the dialogue is run-of-the-mill and the action is stilted. The second artist on the issue, Geraldo Borges, isn't really any better than Roge and the shift between them isn't very smooth. The only strong points remain the new developments we get with the story in the present and past, including the ending. Otherwise, the issue is just thoroughly mediocre, which is a shame given all the big name characters involved. Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin Eternal #10 was yet another poor entry in the weekly series, leaving me questioning just where the creative team plan on taking this story. That said it did give some enjoyable twists, but for the better part felt like yet another wasted filler issue. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Daniel Cole Dec 10, 2015

    Although the issue was mainly bland, it had a few highlights that make it better than the last. But Batman and Robin Eternal continues to be a non-event, a cynical by the numbers Bat-book that was made to capitilise on an audience that deserves better. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 9, 2015

    While this issue moves the overall story along, it does so with poor dialogue, awful characterizations and ridiculous situations.  Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly were given some cool toys to play with, but did nothing with them.  This month's cliffhanger didn't have to zing that last week's did so the suffering getting to it felt all the more painful.  I've heard rumblings of people dropping this book and I only expect them to get louder after this issue.

    A weak and mediocre issue that spends too much time developing a subplot that ends up being meaningless, and shallow banter between two one-dimensional characters. Eternal seems to have fallen back into filler mode.

    So far the story has been pretty good the mystery is engaging enough to keep me reading and while tha I feel that this issue is lacking in good art I still feel like this weekly is something I should read for the conclusion and to see the main characters interact.

    If you are a fan of 1990's style Batman Family stories, this issue, like its predecessor, will be perfect for you. This is probably the best writing for Red Robin in the entire New 52 thus far. He and Red Hood are used to foil each other for dynamic and entertaining interactions throughout the issue, and the emphasis on distinguishing these two Robins from each other pays dividends. While the issue demonstrates their specialities, it also embraces their equal training under Batman; neither is just a fighter or a computer hacker. The issue also introduces the New 52 version of Jean Paul Vally, who seems to have been streamlined into a sleeker version of his previous self. The short fight with Bane echoes both character's history, providing another treat for fans of the old school Gotham tales. On the other hand, this issue spends very little time on what was the A-plot of the first mini arc of the weekly. Readers seeking out a Grayson-esque issue will be disappointed, and the main purpose of the Santa Prisca arc from these last two issues seems to have been mostly supplementary; it serves to re-introduce Azrael in the context of the weekly' villain, not to bring the main climbing action to a peak. People looking for a more straightforward action story will instead be greeted by a world written in a manner reminiscent of Chuck Dixon and Denny O'Neill, where anatagonists can be just as stubborn as the protagonists, and where subplots and crossovers serve the characters more than the event.

    The story was decent, but the art was atrocious in some pages -- that said, credit is due for at least delivering this comic in a weekly basis, something Marvel can't do.
