    Some of this issue feels a little crowded and a little rushed at times, but there is quite a bit of good stuff being presented nonetheless. Whilecontinuing the story already in place, I feel like the primarypurpose of this particularinstallment was to set up a bunch of new threads, that will carry us through the next half dozen or so issues.

    This week were brought back to Batgirls mission, and reminded on what The Spoiler has been up to. Batman isnt giving up on his mission either (as if he ever would) and Catwoman faces problems of her own – All of this and funny side remarks by Penny-Two. Its a winning combination!

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Oct 10, 2014

    Batman: Eternal #27 may not be the greatest entry in this weekly series, but following the horrific performance of last weeks issue it's hard not to enjoy this outing, with the developments being very enthralling. The teamwork, or lack of between Batman and Catwoman also proves an added bonus, with a few extra bonuses allowing for some enjoyable moments. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Oct 9, 2014

    Javier Garron is the star of this installment, imbuing Batman Eternal with a certain measure of energy and (mostly) strong characters. He runs into some trouble when posing Catwoman but there's a certain Nick Bradshaw/Chris Bachalo tinge to his art that gives his characters a ton of presence in just about every panel.

    Another enjoyable read, but nothing earth-shattering here. You won't be disappointed either way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 14, 2014

    Batman: Eternal #27 is an okay issue with great art.  The overall story kind of stalled this week, but the seeds of some really important events were planted.  We also get even more characters thrown into the mix which is crazy in a book already packed to the gills with heroes and villains.  If you haven't been reading, I can't suggest jumping on this week, but if you have, there is enough here to enjoy.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 13, 2014

    This is another good issue of Batman Eternal despite the change of pace and characters from recent issues. Its a big story that continues to get bigger. There is a unique completeness to it with the through line that is Jade, despite two cliffhangers with Batgirl and Catwoman. The art is neither here nor there, nothing really remarkably great or awful about it, just somewhat average. If youre reading this title, youre going to get this issue. If youre not it might be a bit harder to jump in to the story here, though theres certainly enough going on to pique ones interest. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Oct 13, 2014

    "Batman Eternal" is too floppy and formless. The art could be better, but the major problem is that the plot needs some gravity to it. Subplots are all very well if the center is strong, but at this point the writers need to stick to one plot thread for longer than a few pages in order to have enough breathing room to do better work with characterization and suspense. The story feels like it's treading water week to week instead of executing bold strokes in a grand plan. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Oct 11, 2014

    Batman Eternal is a mess. The stories could and do change with the flip of the page, with zero connection to anything that has come before. The art is hit or miss, since the artist changes with almost every issue. And while I would agree that perhaps every issue has the same story tone, the stories themselves are too insane to connect in a larger work. There is no through line, no anchor for the audience to hold onto. Every new issue just sort of throws up whatever it wants, even though the same writers keep working on it. I just don't understand what could have gone wrong. Read Full Review

    After a week of backstory, we get an issue that continues some of the plots we've seen, but nothing too major. There's really not too much to talk about with this issue, since it really is just touching base with all of the different plot threads. It's written well, and the art can be jarring at times, but is still better than decent in most places. There's just not a lot going on here. If you're reading Eternal every week like I am, then go ahead and pick this issue up.
