Theres a new bad guy in town: Gridlock, the villain whos stuck in the past! And now, hes out to stop the future from coming! Booster Gold, the hero from the future, obviously cant allow that, but when he seeks Bat-Mites help in finding this purloiner of progress, it doesnt take much of a prognosticator to predict that hes going to regret it.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 3, 2015

    Bat-Mite continues to be fun as hell, but sadly this story falls a little short when compared to the previous issue.  Yeah, I know you should base an issue on it's own merits, but it's hard after we had such a great pairing with Bat-Mite and Damian Wayne last month.  This is still fun and looks great though, but Booster just didn't have much to do.  The real hero of this book to me is Gridlock and after reading this issue, I'm rooting for the bad guy.   Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Sep 3, 2015

    Overall, I had a few laughs with this issue and it was a nice change-up to my current run of comics I usually read. The simplistic plot line does play nicely into what a kid could follow when reading this but the jokes seem to target older audiences. It is certainly not my first choice of comic I would grab but it has its merits. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Sep 2, 2015

    A lack of consequences also comes with a slight sense of disposability as well, and there is a very fine line being walked here. All-ages doesn't always mean for all tastes, and while previous issues in the series have been quite strong, this one doesn't hit the same heights. What Bat-Mite does retain in every outing is a sense of innocent charm from a bygone era of comics, although it's the kind of format that works best in bite-sized chunks. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 16, 2015

    It's an unusual team-up to be sure (especially since the New 52 seems fine with writing Booster out of its current continuity). Still, the two unlikely heroes make a fun pair (even if neither is clad in their traditional costumes). Eventually Booster and Bat-Mite learn to work together to stop a villain stuck in the past (and stop him from collecting vintage comics?). Oh well, even if Gridlock's crimes aren't exactly world-shattering, it's still fun to see Booster back in action (whatever he's wearing). Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 6, 2015

    It's an issue that works best as a chapter of the larger story, but works as a stand-alone on the strength of the main characters delusion. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Sep 4, 2015

    Plenty of jokes, but not many laughs. Even the magnificent artwork of Corin Howell won't be enough to stifle your groans as you flip through another attempt from Dan Jurgens to tickle your funny bone. Read Full Review
