    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Mar 16, 2016

    “This is the way the world ends, not with a bang but a whimper.” T. S. Eliot likely would never have considered working for DC Entertainment. Then again, he was a very surprising man, so nothing should be ruled out. Certainly, the end of the New 52/DC YOU era mirrors the insight ofThe Hollow Men, Eliot's 1925 meditation on hope and failure. As the DC Universe shambles toward it's comingRebirth event, the elements that had characterized itspast two incarnations are beginning to fray and unwind. It is difficult to say whether these shifts represent eagerness to launch into the new world to come, whatever form it may take, or weariness with a creative regime that, whatever its virtues, had overstayedits welcome both in terms of economic success and reader popularity.

    Comicsverse - Tim O'Reilly Mar 12, 2016

    Delivering another strong issue, Tynion IV and Scott Snyder have shown that they have a pretty great understanding of the dynamics of the Bat Family, something that I don't feel is as prevalent in Snyder's flagship BATMAN book. BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL #23 gives you a good idea of what DC should be looking for in their stories. There's drama, but it's not overwhelming. There's humor, but it's not without due context. Most importantly, though, there's a strong element of fun to this book. BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL #23, like every other BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL that Tynion IV has written, never stops being a fun action-adventure. That's something to keep in mindas DC brings about its new Rebirth changes in the coming months. Read Full Review

    An action-packed issue that is taking us to a massivefinale we have come to expect has a few hiccups in how it gets us there, but the art and characters pull us through. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Mar 11, 2016

    This issue was necessary in order to put the pieces in place for the final showdown, but it lacked a true sense of enjoyment in and of itself. It also boasted a fair share of questionable editing, inaccurate art, and unnecessary scenes. Would I call it filler? No. But it could have definitely been pared back a bit here and there.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 9, 2016

    I have gotten used to the disappointment that this book brings almost every single week, but this issue is just too much.  It's as if all the writers have been leading us on so they can laugh at us when it's all over.  I don't know about you, but I don't like getting laughed at.
