    Ryan Benjamin's art is growing on me. I like his version of the League, and his world is solidifying, creating a nice balance between the animated style of the cartoon and the more realistic style of the DC Universe. There is good in this comic, to be sure, but it feels like a lot of filler to get us to the main event next month. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Stephen Schleicher Feb 4, 2011

    The cliffhanger ending last issue didn't fizzle in Beechen's as the series gets to issue #2. This volume isn't as deep or as heavily mired in past continuity that the previous mini-series was, and is easily accessible by new readers. And even though the future of the DCU is a dark one, this issue isn't heavily mired down in deep depressing moments, and is an interesting read for fans of Batman. I like where Beechen is taking us so far, and seeing future Barda drawn up right by Benjamin and Stanisci makes the issue easy on the eyes. Overall Batman Beyond #2 is worth picking up and earns 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    But I will say this: so far this new ongoing Batman Beyond series feels more like the original animated show than the previous mini-series did. Where the last series was heavily rooted in past Batman canon, this new series feels fresh and much more approachable for new readers. And in classic Batman Beyond style, there is a new take on a classic villain concept to further flesh out Batman Beyond's mythology. Read Full Review
