    Coming out of the shadows we see the clown assistant hoping that his boss is finally satisfied with seeing Batman in action and a reveal of the shadowed man at the end. The man finds the results to be that Batman poses little threat to him. Read Full Review

    Ray: I'd also be remiss in not noting the presence of Dee-Dee, who actually killed Terry McGinnis in an alternate universe. It's very enjoyable to watch Batman clean their clocks. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gilbert Short Mar 2, 2012

    This book is one of the biggest surprises I've read this month, and you should check it out. It's fun, with explosive action and great art on both accounts. While I DID love the second story more, that may simply be because I am always crying about Kryptonians and the Airbender Green Lantern is one of the coolest Green Lanterns I've ever seen. Pick this up! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 29, 2012

    This is an oversized issue full of Beyond goodness. These days, $3.99 for 48 pages is a great deal. There is a Batman Beyond story by series regular Adam Beechen and art by Norm Breyfogle. There is also a Justice League Beyond story written and drawn by Derek Fridolfs and Dustin Nguyen. Both stories pick up where last year's BATMAN BEYOND story left off. There is plenty of ties to the animated series that shows the creative team knows what they're doing. While there is a ton of great art, there were a couple moments with some characters feeling a little off. Both stories are setting up plots for future stories and there is plenty of fun and excitement inside. Read Full Review

    Although it looks as if the art team is trying to stay as close to the look of the show as they can, I don't think it would hurt to venture off the beaten path a little more and get experimental with the tone and looks of the characters. Like the story itself, the pacing of the artwork was well-timed and executed. It kept the pace of a comic instead of a TV show and never felt heavy-handed in its introduction to elements of this unfamiliar world. Although it stands apart from the other Batbooks on the shelf because of its origins in TV, Batman Beyond Unlimited can certainly stand on its own. I can see this book really becoming a fan-favorite, and it is an excellent introduction for new readers who were Bat-fans from their childhood. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Andrew Asberry Feb 29, 2012

    Also, am I the only one who hates how the Beyond universe calls Gotham “Neo-Gotham”? At what city council meeting did someone suggest that the city add “Neo” to the front of its name “ya know, because we're in the future and stuff!” and there was resounding approval by everyone involved?
