    The writing was excellent. Snyder and Tynion were able to deliver an origin story that makes you think twice about how Bruce Wayne came to be Batman. The art by Daniel, Florea and Tomeu matched the tone of this story perfectly. By depicting the horrible origin story of Mother, Snyder, Tynion and Daniel come together to give a performance you won't forget. Read Full Review

    While the background story behind Mother is probably the thing that most people will take away from this issue, I was personally in awe of all the wonderful Batman moments that this story dished out. Even though I was fully engrossed in Mother's demented genesis, the Batman stuff still managed to win me over. For those of you who have been missing Batman, I'm sure you'll get a real kick out of his scenes. Read Full Review

    This is one of the better issues of Eternal and it's not just because we get the heaviest dose of Batman this series has seen yet, but for what it does for the other characters as well.  While Mother is far from a sympathetic character, we see what drove her down her dark path and realize that she isn't as different from Batman as we might have believed.  The highlight for me, however, was seeing what Batman did (and didn't do) to give Harper her own life and it made so much sense explaining her entire history.  Tony Daniel's great art was an awesome icing on the cake and while the overall story didn't move forward much, I enjoyed reading this issue.  I can't remember the last time I said that.

    This issue can be enjoyed by any fan of good comics. Its that accessible. Maybe the best issue of the series so far. Tony Daniels art is particularly welcome in that it is familiar and hes been associated with Batman for nearly ten years if not more. It fits very well. Just like New Teen Titans #38 featuring Who Is Donna Troy? This issue can be enjoyed out of context of Batman and Robin Eternal. But it doesnt hurt to get the other 20 issues. Read Full Review

    Due to strong writing and solid art, we recommend picking this issue up, though it might also be worth waiting for the trade due to the intertwined nature of the plot. Read Full Review
