    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Feb 22, 2016

    This issue raises the bar from issues prior. Seeley does a great job at pushing the story forward and pushing down our heroes into more chaos. ArtistsRoge Antonio and Geraldo Borges do a great job bringing the script to life and creating some hard-hitting scenes – both figuratively and quite literally (that incoming kick from Orphan looks like it's going to hurt!).The character reveal at the end is also a nice surprise and should prove to shake up the story even more! (We've been missing a level of smartass remarks that Red Hood just can't deliver quite as well as this newest addition to the series). Looking forward to the next issue of Batman and Robin Eternal!

    The Batman Universe - Ian Miller Feb 17, 2016

    Dick and the Bat-family have their work cut out for them, but fortunately, they seem to be pulling together in the face of Mothers success. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Feb 19, 2016

    This felt a lot more like the climax to a major summer blockbuster than the prelude to the finishing stretch of a comic maxi-series. While the story is still rather top heavy in the action department, I felt that Seeley was able to add a lot more heart and relevancy to the character interactions than last week's installment.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Feb 24, 2016

    With the end of the DC You and the coming ofRebirth, the recent philosophy that has guided DC Comics, story over continuity, seems to be coming to an end. Once again, the editors of DC are emphasizing the glories of an integrated and coherent universe. The first intimations of this change are beginning to radiate through DC's various publications, andBatman and Robin #20is a prime example. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Ryan Lower Feb 19, 2016

    Overall, a decent issue that escalates the story a little more. The team has stopped one threat while Mother has access to another, only pushing us closer to what should be an epic reunion. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 19, 2016

    Batman And Robin Eternal #20 caps off this chapter in the ongoing saga of Bat-family vs. Mother and brings a new dynamic into play that could be very interesting. This single issue is just fine, though it highlights some aspects that are becoming repetitive could become problematic as this series progresses. Here's hoping the final page brings good tidings for Batman And Robin Eternal going forward. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 17, 2016

    While this issue is far from perfect, I liked it more than what we've been getting lately.  The issue is filled with good action and while the dialogue was pretty bad and certain things felt forced, they still moved the overall story forward and for that I will overlook a lot.  The art was also a mixed bag, but the cliffhanger has me excited for next week which leaves me kind of in the middle with this issue overall.  Hence my score.

    Not a good issue. Bad dialogue; forced, stilted and just not entertaining. Artwork very inconsistent. Rebirth can't come soon enough.

    Standard fare for a Batman comic with nothing too memorable. Action, evil guys with subplots but the saving grace is that we finally get the arrival of the current Robin, Damian. I was wondering where that little punk was in a series that featured every Robin except him until now. Go f%$#@ 'em up Damian.

    in a series already jam packed with way too many characters to keep tabs on, starting the first page with generic throwaway characters is really a bad introduction to the issue. once again the art is substandard, it’s difficult to distinguish characters which is very distracting, and besides that it's not even very exciting to look at. the writing for Harper Row comes off as very 2 dimensional, and laughably bad. and to have Harper Row (a rank amateur) give 3 seasoned fighters like Dick Grayson, Jason Todd and Casandra Cain such a difficult time to take down is just ridiculous. for what should be an intense emotional moment, i find myself rolling my eyes. there is SO much bad dialog in this comic! at one point Poppy declares herself a “Cannibal Judas”. seriously, are they really just letting the interns write this comic??? the one thing Dick Grayson is well known for is his witty and playful sense of humor even in the face of danger, and this issue features none of that. now at least they are finally trying to rectify the Grayson secret identity being blown dilemma, even if their logic seems a bit ridiculous. at least the very last page made up for the complete absence of Damian Wayne in this series! as curious as i am to see what will come next week, seeing just how poorly an excellent character like Dick Grayson gets utilized in this series i can't get too overly excited! and it's really sad that after being given a crappy issue such as this, i find myself saying "well it's not quite as stinky as the crappy issue from last week?" Batman Eternal continues it's established legacy of bad story-telling mixed with terrible art. if this was some independent comic with characters you've never heard of before, you wouldn't even give it a second look! as much as i love DC Comics, they have really become kings of peddling trash.
