    If you like the show, you'll love this book. It's as simple as that. Yes, the story can be viewed as a bit repetitive compared to the Return of the Joker film, but I really think this has its own flair to it. I can't wait to see this as its own on-going series. Highly Recommended. Read Full Review

    What I didn't- Terry spends most of the book out cold, then being operated on. Waller lost control of one of her own creations with no viable back up plan? I don't buy it. And Dick hasn't been ok since he was eight? Wow, that's wholly out of character. And our bad guy is an evil clone that is part Waller's fault and part Cadmus' fault… this just seems a bit odd, especially since Waller helped create Terry McGinuess in the first place, replacing his father's DNA with Bruce Wayne's all those years ago. It seems like a slightly re-treaded tale, over all. Read Full Review

    You really need to be a Batman Beyond fan, and someone familiar with the Batman's history over the last 20 years to fully appreciate what is going on in this series. I haven't given away everything going on in this issue, so the book is still worth a read to see how Hush really ties into all of this, and to see how Bruce gets his hash handed to him when his guard is down. The big reveal works, and the art is okay, earning Batman Beyond #5 3 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    We also lean the new Catwoman's identity and Bruce and Terry have a nice bonding moment. It's not a great issue, and some of the clone's super-villain banter is way too forced, but for all-encompassing Bat-fans it might still be worth a look. Hit-and-Miss. Read Full Review

    I'm glad "Batman Beyond" is doing well in comic form, and it's serving as a nice reminder that I still have a lot of episodes that I should watch one of these days. But hopefully once it moves to an ongoing series, these pacing problems will get touched up, and some slightly more consistent art. "Batman Beyond" is a good comic, but there's no reason why it can't become a great comic, too. Read Full Review

    I really didn't care for much here but the the art most of all. Don't know if it's because I haven't read the series in a while or that this specific issue nothing stood out as good and the bad just looked worse. It was nice that Bruce FINALLY started acting like a decent human being especially considering this is tied to the Animated series. It's too little too late though. It comes from nowhere. Bruce doesn't say much about his current behavior outside of, "I felt threatened, and manufactured faults in the kid." Paraphrasing, but that's not much in terms or remorse or an apology for someone who did most everything you asked for years and all of a sudden you feel bad. Not buying it. All in all, I didn't care for much here. Terry and Catwom more
