    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Dec 16, 2015

    An exciting, reasonably well handled re-introduction of Cassandra Cain's backstory into the new 52, this issue makes a few missteps, but is otherwise very enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Overall, a fun issue that gives an origin to a mysterious character who also has many questions left to be answered. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Dec 16, 2015

    After two issues of weak writing and lacking artwork, this was a much need breath of fresh air. We some more development with the plot, backstory for Orphan and Cassandra Cain, and improved writing in general. There were some questionable story decisions and a plot point that looked to be setting up to be a twist (though if it is, it's WAY too blatantly obvious and colors the relationship of two characters in a less than impressive way). Otherwise, Ed Brisson really did a great job handling the plot and keeping things interesting. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 19, 2015

    Cassandra Cain gets a new origin story. Usually when writers deviate from original material, I have a hard time accepting it, but enough of the core character beats were hit that I found it easy to accept this new version. For new readers, know that you'll be getting a fairly faithful interpretation of Cassandra, and for old readers, you'll be happy to know they didn't butcher the character. Read Full Review

    This moment is particularly telling. Dicks urgency upon hearing Batmans name really indicates how important Batman is to him. It ties directly into the main theme of this series- the relationship between Batman and Dick, the other Robins and the very concept of Robin. One final hit. This issue is excellent.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Dec 16, 2015

    There's a couple huge reveal moments in this issue that really hook the reader in, making for an overall really solid issue of this weekly series. BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL continues to be a great week-to-week read for those who are fans of all the Batchildren of Gotham. There's enough mystery and intrigue here to keep readers invested. If you've missed out, this is a series you should check out as this book continues to be worth the investment. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Dec 20, 2015

    Brisson does well indelivering a high impact issue with some of the series' most graphic scenes yet. We get to see another side of the Mother saga and how an innocent bystander is impacted, even inadvertently, by her persuasions. The art team of Blanco, Duce, and Rauch craft scenes befitting to the horror taking place in the past, as Bluebird learns more than she ever thought she would about her newest friend.

    The Rainbow Hub - Emma Houxbois Dec 17, 2015

    This is an absolutely critical story issue that keeps the focus where it needs to be, but it lacks some of the polish and bold character voices that have elevated the best issues into individual greatness so far. None the less, Batman & Robin Eternal has lost none of it's momentum, continuing to rely on the characters to drive engagement instead of the overly precious set pieces that typically define event comics. Nearly three months in and Batman & Robin Eternal remains the most engaging and rewarding event comic in recent history. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 18, 2015

    "Batman and Robin Eternal" #11 is a satisfying comic without needing to stand out. There isn't a huge cliffhanger, but it moves at an even keel. Those who have been reading up until now will have no reason not to return next week, even as Cassandra Cain fans will rejoice in her continued repositioning as part of the Batman line's future. No complaints here. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 16, 2015

    Ed Brisson jumps on Batman and Robin Eternal, but it's pretty much the same old story.  We get a Cassandra Cain origin that is nothing shocking and when we are about to get the bottom of one of this series biggest mysteries, we are snatched away and get nothing.  Nothing!  The art and story just happen and when I was finished reading the issue, I didn't feel any closer to the destination.  In fact, I didn't feel much at all.

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Daniel Cole Dec 17, 2015

    The art robs the issue of any intensity the script demands. The colours softening everything unfortunately. Brisson knows how to write Harper, but does get lost in places. This isn't bad, its just another mediocre issue of Batman and Robin Eternal. Read Full Review
