    This whole series has been an absolute gift for anyone whos a fan of the 1989 film. Its also a great introduction to comics, so do your duty to the industry and give this series to someone who isnt as into comics as you are. Read Full Review

    While it would continue veering into unexpected deviations from the world Burton set up, itd be great to see another installment featuring this creative team going for another spin in the Burton Batverse. Read Full Review

    There have been many delays for this comic, probably due to Joe Quinones' very detailed art, but the finale brings it together as another modern classic in the vein of the Venditti/Torres Superman '78. Read Full Review

    Batman '89#6 offers an emotionally satisfying ending. Some readers may be confused on the general lack of action or the fast pacing, but the comic shows Batman, but the art and the plot alone should make up for it. Read Full Review

    Batman '89 #6 is a good wrap-up to this series, though it seems like it could have been expanded upon more. For instance, it would've been nice to hear more about Catwoman's psychiatrist, potentially setting the stage for a sequel series. It also seems like the prospect of Barbara becoming Batgirl is slim to none in this universe, but you never know. A spinoff of Catwoman and Barbara working together would be very interesting for sure. It would be cool if DC gave us more of this Batman in the future. Perhaps a future series could show Robin Williams as the Riddler since he was once rumored to play the Riddler opposite Keaton's Batman. Read Full Review

    The issue proves to be a satisfying conclusion, elevated by brilliant artwork, making Batman '89 a worthwhile successor to the films that inspired it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Jul 5, 2022

    Batman '89 #6 brings the comic interpretation of Burton's scuttled third film with a finale with great-looking characters but little more to crow about. The Gotham City aesthetic is wholly absent, the story moves at a snail's pace with overlong dialog and narration, and the ending lacks gravitas. Read Full Review

    It's over. There isn't much more for me to say. I wanted to love this book, and held out hope as long as I could, but even the few bright spots that I held onto didn't pay off in the end. The art is nice, and I'd love to see this team on a different book, but the writing never got any better than "interesting. And really, it rarely rose above that. A few weeks ago I watched Batman just because, and this makes me want to watch it again, for the wrong reasons. Read Full Review
