    A physical embodiment of fear. A symbol, something more than human. To Dick, Bruce is a man. He gets hurt, he bleeds, he questions. He is a man. As Dick says, its his greatest strength and his greatest weakness. This is no Bat-god. Bruce is a man for good and bad. But at the end of the day, he is a good man at the head of a family. Family, remember that. Oh, so close to 5…4.75. Read Full Review

    While this isn't a jumping on point for new readers it may be a good jumping back on point for those who took this book off their pull lists.  Actually, go back and get last weeks issue and this one and hope for the best going forward.  James Tynion did a great job of laying the foundation of great character work and I can only cross my fingers that the other writers will grab the baton and not drop it before the finish line.  For now, I'm back on the Batman and Robin trolley.

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Jan 10, 2016

    There's a certain not-quite campiness to Batman and Robin Eternal, with battles between spies and ninjas and huge robot smackdowns but it becomes much more than the sum of its parts. Batman and Robin Eternal feels like it could only be possible as a comic, a thriller with impossibly high stakes, unbelievable combatants and exciting, adrenaline-pumping set-pieces. For those put off by the slow start and less than compelling opening, it's worth catching up on one of DC's most consistently thrilling comics. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jan 7, 2016

    Issue #14 of Batman and Robin Eternal brings back the humor (but not Red Hood and Red Robin!!!!!!) while delivering some great action scenes accompanied by equally great artwork by Blanco, Robinson, and Rauch. Tynion IV pulls together another action-packed script as he makes room for twists and turns in the Batman and Robin story happening in the past as well as in the present. Seriouslywhat was Scarecrow thinking? You can't mess with the Bat. Read Full Review

    Batman and Robin Eternal #14 continues to bring this weekly series back to the quality we know it can deliver, with the creative team giving us a truly gripping issue. We are also given plenty to speculate as we await next week's installment, with Batman's involvement still having a giant question mark above it. Read Full Review

    Not every issue of this book is a revelation and it shouldn't be, but issue #14 of BATMAN & ROBIN ETERNAL does give the reader insight into Scarecrow's work and what makes him the character he is. Tynion does a nice job giving the reader a human look at the character and while there isn't anything huge revealed at the end of the issue, which is a nice change, the overall issue was a great read, minus a couple art missteps, and this weekly series continues to be a great read.

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Jan 8, 2016

    If I were grading this story on the Batman portion alone, you'd be seeing a much higher score. As it stands, the contemporary portion had several flaws that drug the rest of this issue down. Even with these minor problems, the Batman section is definitely worth the price of admission in and of itself. If you've been looking for a classic Batman tale that depicts everything you want and expect from our pointy eared paragon, then look no further. Read Full Review
