    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Nov 12, 2015

    This issue of Batman and Robin Eternal kicks off with some great action and delivers some chilling looks into the past. The artwork is impressive throughout out and Daniel gives fantastic representations of Batman along with his many allies. A scene towards the middle of this issue shows Batman in the middle of the two pages as the narration on either side breaks down what he knows about mother – it's here where we get the most hardboiled/noir type language in the issue. Daniel showcases Batman in the middle of the pages and determined, covered in the pouring rain, as lightning strikes in the background (it's going to be your new phone background pic). This issue is on fleek! (as the kids say). Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Nov 11, 2015

    Definitely the best issue of Batman&Robin Eternal since the premiere. The flashback sequence is undoubtedly the best part of the book, and fortunately for us, it encompasses almost the entire issue. Get ready to indulge yourself in a Bruce/Batman that should be an every issue occurrence, while simultaneously enjoying a story that stands on its own merit. For those of you who have been pining over the loss of Batman, this issue marks a bitter sweet return to that lost world. You'll be able to get a quick fix, but be left wondering why the publisher is being so stingy in only handing out these small morsels of the awesomeness that is Batman. More of this please!

    The Rainbow Hub - Logan Dalton Nov 12, 2015

    The flashback with the death of Maxwell and insights into Mother's activities truly raises the threat level in Batman and Robin Eternal and makes the final page featuring Dick, Jason, Harper, and Cass jumping in the Bat-plane feel ominous although outwardly it looks like a globetrotting adventure. Daniel conveys this with the first look at Mother's, well, maternal eyes covered in shadow while Morey pours on the blacks on the Batplane signifying that Batman and Robin Eternal #6 is the first step in a darker direction for this title.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Nov 17, 2015

    There is a great attraction to psychological stories. One of the most difficult tasks a writer faces is to craft a connection with an audience. Indeed, the very origins of genre rest, in part, in the fact that different groups of people respond better or worse to given techniques and approaches. But even within a specific genre it can sometimes be extraordinarily hard to find a way to truly communicate ideas, themes, and plots to readers, especially if an author is attempting to help the audience relate personally to a fantastically unusual character, say a billionaire genius who dresses up as an anthropomorphic bat and battles colorful, insane villains in a bizarre, ludicrously corrupt caricature of an American megacity. The human mind, however, is universal. Basic thoughts and emotions are part of everyone's daily life, and therefore the thoughts and emotions of even such a strange figure as Batman can offer a point of identification for a reader.

    James Tynion is back on the book and while he brought a bunch of setup, he also brought some cool scenes and dialogue to boot.  We get to see the moment Batman became aware of Mother and end with most of the Bat Family heading to Prague.  The art was a bit off, which was disappointing, but this issue has me excited for the series again and that is enough for me.

    Dick and Jason continue their discussion, to determine the next course of action. Dicks got Harper and Cass in a safe house. Jason calls him on it- the second time in two issues a Robin has accused Dick of being too much like Batman. Jason and Dick pick Cass and Harper up on their way to Prague, and we get a tantalizing glimpse of Mother who is quite happy about the course of events. 4 1/2 Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Nov 11, 2015

    Batman And Robin Eternal #6 steadies the ship nicely and brings it back onto a course I am game to read. The return of Daniel on art and Tynion's work to tie together pieces of the script bring this series nicely back in line and I'm excited for issue #7 and the continued quest to find Mother.

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Nov 11, 2015

    Batman and Robin Eternal #6 was a significant step up from the last few issues. There was actual progression with the story instead of a bunch of false leads being chased. We were presented with a big flashback and a far more solid direction for where this comic can go in the future. Plus, Tynion's writing was stronger than usual and Tony Daniel's artwork was good and consistent. Honestly, this is a step in the right direction and I'm reenergized to see where this comic is going.

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 12, 2015

    The return of James Tynion IV and Tony Daniel also means a return to form for this series. Tynion grabs many of the freewheeling threads of past issues and mostly ties them together, resulting in an issue that serves to both advance the narrative and the characters within it. Read Full Review

    Inter-Comics Podcast - Daniel Cole Nov 11, 2015

    So, issue six has little to offer in terms of plot, but it does attempt to do a character piece. It may seem familiar to a lot of readers, but it succeeds in what it sets out to do. The art is the main draw here with Daniel, Morey and Florea delivering a good looking Batman book. Hopefully at some point Batman and Robin Eternal will once again be able to marry its script with its art so that the readers can get another great issue out of this series. Read Full Review
