    Dark Knight News - Eric Joseph Feb 1, 2016

    After delivering such a significant issue, my only gripe is that the cliffhanger didn't seem very shocking, at least for now. At least they tease "The Mother of All Secrets" for next week. Another week has gone by, andEternalis another good way to spend $2.99. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jan 28, 2016

    This should have been one of the better issues in this series, but it was just limp, mate. The mystery of whether it was really Bruce holding the smoking gun in issue #1 was a really lackluster way. This whole issue was a letdown and suffered pacing issues and while the art was good, this issue really wasn't. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Jan 28, 2016

    This issue answers the big question we have all been waiting for, but the explanation ends up being much simpler and far less climactic than I was expecting. While the answer itself was somewhat underwhelming, the book still has plenty of dynamic action and displays some very enjoyable character traits. The real culprit that detracted from this book's appeal was in the editing and storytelling itself. Paramount to this was how the flashback scenes ruined the immersion and believability of the contemporary ones. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Jan 28, 2016

    The story still seems to be moving quite slow but the plot threads will all come together soon and it looks like it will be well worth it when they do! In the mean time at least the series has really been showing of the links of the robins. Hopefully the next issue has more of an action tone to it than this one gave us. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Jan 27, 2016

    A decent issue, finally laying to rest the silly speculation about Batman raised by issue #1, but does little more than move most of the active characters in the narrative to the same place. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jan 28, 2016

    Overall this issue served to give readers some information we've been craving since the beginning, but when reading it you can't help but feel it's just going through the motions. This series has been strong all the way through, but strives when humor and action can take a front seat, and even with Bat's grand fight we're still left with wanting more – as we've received in issues prior. Eaton, Faucher, and Passalaqua deliver some great artwork – even giving us a quick panel of the two redheroesGotham needs. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Daniel Cole Jan 30, 2016

    That is the problem with this issue (and the series as a whole). The creative team seem to put in little effort. They took their check and moved on. Bland comics end up being the worst as they don't elicit an emotional response. The story is coming to its third act, but the quality of the book (and this issue) killed it before it left the first.
