    Dark Knight News - Alec Ward Sep 3, 2015

    I've been up-and-down with this series, but this has been my favorite issue thus far. If the series keeps going in this direction, it's going to be a contender for my favorite comic of the year. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 4, 2015

    For all you holdouts waiting for Batman Beyond to begin kicking it up a notch, this is your lucky day because man does this issue go above and beyond to get your attention and keep it.  All is lost it seems for Neo Gotham and maybe that's the kick in the pants that our hero needed to begin acting like the Batman Beyond that we want him to be and if that's the case, I can't wait to see what else this series does from here on out.  Go get yourself some Batman Beyond and have a blast.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 3, 2015

    As much as I wanted to leave everything connected to The New 52: Futures End in the past, this series does have its appeal as it chronicles the ongoing battle between Tim and Brother Eye. There's a real sense of scope and drama to the conflict. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Sep 2, 2015

    The final reveal of the battle suit would have been cool if the suit was actually the Thrasher armor we saw Bruce wear when the Talons attacked the Batcave. Instead it almost looks like the War Machine armor from Iron Man. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Sep 2, 2015

    The comic felt like one big fight, not something I generally enjoy, until the end, which features a twist that ties in what's currently going on in the various current Batman series directly into this. It's not something I thought about, and it shows there's a greater plan out there for what's going on. That ending had me more excited to see what's coming in the next issue. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Sep 4, 2015

    A fast-paced and high-energy book with a focus on urban warfare, this issue of Batman Beyond shows just how much Tim learned in his time under Bruce, and how important the city of Gotham is to him. I've been against most of the creative choices when it comes to the story, but I still have hope that the battle between Tim and Brother Eye will be worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Front Towards Gamer - Lido Sep 5, 2015

    Putting aside the generic iconography and the fact that the entire set-up is ripped straight from Power Rangers RPM, the world of Batman Beyond just isn't very engaging or fun to be in. Tim Drake has been stripped of all defining personality and is basically just a warm body to fill the bat suit. The world is drably designed and never rises above being a Bladerunner pastiche. What's more the element of youth and optimism that made Batman Beyond so engaging is stripped out, it's no longer a story about legacy and revival now it's just a nasty little end of the world tale about how Batman couldn't save anyone but his own city. The story doesn't simply fail to be Batman Beyond; it's the opposite of everything that made Batman Beyond enjoyable. Read Full Review
