    Humor makes its way back into the series as Tim Seeley takes over on scripting. Humor isn't the only thing this issue is about, however, as we also get to see plenty of action from the former Bat-sidekicks. A great line from Grayson also reminds us who one of the most badass characters in this series is, “Cass. You're with me. Even off your rocker, you're one of the best fighters on the damn planet.” He says this in regards to Cass who is also being affected by Mother's mind-control and in need of the fear toxin. Even while facing her greatest fears right in front of her Grayson still knows she's capable of great things, that's pretty awesome. The artwork on this issue also hit a lot of high notes as we experience some brutal fight scenes and some psychedelic panels. Soooo many punches being thrownthis issue, and a pretty epic head-butt via Cass don't pick a fight with her. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 12, 2016

    Another great issue in this highly enjoyable series. The character moments are truly the best parts of this book, but the story continues to be engaging. While Mother has become a lot more vulnerable throughout this series, the threat she poses still gives the Robins a big challenge. Read Full Review

    Overall, a fun, exciting issue that is a little bit of a payoff for weeks of buildup. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Feb 17, 2016

    Batman and Robin Eternal #19 delves into one of the more interesting, some would say ironic, some would even say disturbing, aspects of current DC continuity, Dick Grayson's day job. At the moment, the first Robin is posing as a gay French gym teacher at St. Hadrian's School for Girls in Suffolk, England. In reality, he is an agent of Spyral, the psychedelic spy agency headed by his one-time partner and tacit love interest, Helena Bertinelli. But, the fact seldom touched on is that Grant Morrison, the creator of Spyral, established the school as a training academy for female assassins. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Jonathan Helmke Feb 15, 2016

    The art in this issue was very impressive. I can't say the same for the story, as it didn't pick up from last week. We're introduced to a story that mostly revolves around everyone trying to survive mind-controlled teen assassins. There were a lot of good fight scenes that you'll enjoying looking at. The story doesn't really progress any further than it did last week, but it's still a good read. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Feb 10, 2016

    While Tim Seeleys return to the series brings a dash of humor, and Paul Pelletiers art is a step up from the past few issues, nothing much of weight happens in the brawl at Spryal. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Feb 12, 2016

    Action, action, and more action. So much action…is there even an actual story hidden underneath all the blood and viscera? While there is, I don't feel like it really took us anywhere. What's more, gone is the feeling that we are dealing with a secret society of assassins hellbent on world domination through subterfuge. Instead, it's a full on assault by Mother to kill everyone who would resist her, and mentally enslave the rest. It was just a little too unintuitive and generic for my taste. Read Full Review

    Batman & Robin Eternal #19 is a disappointing chapter in a weekly series that I have enjoyed on the whole. Weaker chapters are to be expected throughout this journey, and #19 suffered from some seemingly rushed artwork and a story that was very straightforward. Here's hoping there's some stronger visuals in store next week. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 10, 2016

    Tim Seeley jumps on Eternal this week and brings along the standard inconsistencies and while the big reveals felt overly forced, they push the overall story forward which I am grateful for. Paul Pelletier's art was good and I'm not sure if this series has just made me punch drunk, but I didn't completely hate this issue. Read Full Review

    i'm not really sure why i continue to read this awful series? it started out a decent enough read but had steadily gotten worse and worse. this series shows two things- #1. monthly comics cannot maintain a reasonable quality level. #2. DC Comics are greedy pigs that will shovel off any trash off to any Batman fan fool enough to keep buying it (like me!). this issue gets a slight boost over last week due to the SLIGHT improvement in the art over last weeks fiasco. the story is still uninspired. the characters all seem like 2 dimensional idiots. and well the plot ... the plot is just utter nonsense. the character 'Mother' sends out a signal that controls the mind's of people under a certain age. (WHAT THE HECK??) and the only way to counteract the effects of the mind control is to give the person Scarecrow's 'Fear Toxin. (ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?) at this point i'm not really sure which series was worse? Batman Eternal or Batman & Robin Eternal? i wouldn't recommend this series not even to the BIGGEST Batman fan!!! if you're looking for a good Batman & Robin Mystery try reading 'Batman: The Black Glove' instead.
