    A fantastic bold re-beginning for old and new readers alike, Batman Beyond Universe #1 is a great primer for any fan of the original series wanting to get into comics, and an even better book to hand off to kid and adult alike. With two great chapters crammed into each issue and new dynamics to watch play out among characters, theres plenty here to praise and welcome to your read pile. Take the opportunity to add this title to your routine. Youll be glad you did. Read Full Review

    Overall, I like this new series and am excited to get back into the Batman Beyond time frame. I'm a little disappointed that some of the story relies on events that occurred in other publications not because I don't want more to read but because I wasn't aware of their connection prior to Batman Beyond Universe #1 being released. I am now going to check out Batman Beyond: 10,000 Clowns, which is a graphic novel, and Batman Beyond 2.0. Both are referenced in this issue and I'm curious how deeply the stories are tied together. Hopefully I'll be able to knock them out before next month's issue and I'll have a better understanding of Batman Beyond Universe. Read Full Review

    There's no need to stick to the present in the DC Universe. Kyle Higgins and Christos Gage are carrying on the tradition of the Batman Beyond characters in their latest stories first appearing digitally. Taking place one year after the previous series, we're seeing where the characters are now and there are some new developments happening. Both series capture the essence of the characters. Whether you like the idea of the digital first comics or still prefer to strictly remain with printed comics, DC is making sure you get to keep up with the latest adventures in the (possible) future of the DC Universe (or at least the Animated Universe). Don't miss out on the fun. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Aug 22, 2013

    Batman Beyond Universe #1 reprints the first two issues of both Batman Beyond 2.0 and Justice League Beyond, and reveal to the print only crowd that DC digital has some of the strongest storytelling in the company. Both Higgins on Batman and Gage on Justice League prove they know these characters and the continual evolution of the animated series universe. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Aug 26, 2013

    Batman Beyond Universe #1 is a love letter to Batman Beyond. Especially at $3.99 for forty pages, I think fans of the show will find themselves wishing that all of DC's offerings could combine passion and quality the way that this one does Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Aug 21, 2013

    Batman Beyond 2.0 raises a lot of exciting questions about what happened during the one year gap and it takes what was once more of a background character and makes him a lot more dangerous. Justice League Beyond 2.0 on the other hand doesn't take any chances at all and feels like a Superman story we've all seen before. The book also comes with a really amazing cover by Sean Murphy and Jordie Bellaire that blows every Batman Beyond Unlimited cover out of the water. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 21, 2013

    Both halves run into problems stemming from the shift from digital to print. There's the aforementioned cramped quality in Silas' art. But the chapters themselves are also poorly organized. Rather than alternate chapters of both series, this issue crams the two Batman Beyond and Justice League Beyond tales into one singular story. In both cases, it's fairly obvious where the original chapter break would have occurred, and it throws off the pacing to see the issue barrel straight from a cliffhanger into the next chapter. As usual, my recommendation would be to give this material a look, but in its original digital form rather than print. Read Full Review

    While not visually stunning to look at, the stories in Batman Beyond Universe #1 are both solid, enjoyable reads. Read Full Review
