    Still in awe of how awesome of a comic book this is. It's so funny, because truthfully, this comic book was one that I was “Awe man, gotta read it and see what's going on now” – We are waaaay past that though. I think other readers had even mentioned this in the past, but I am so glad that I continued to be invested in this comic book. With Brother Eye in the beginning, we kept asking for something more. There was obviously other issues that happened after Brother Eye, but I am completely content with what we are getting from this comic book now. Rewire came into the picture and I was unsure of how they were going to use this character, but then they totally dropped that bomb onto us that it's Terry. Imagine that. Then, they continue to place these past memories in the perfect frames, to give us a hint at what's to come. If you're not reading this, you need to. Read Full Review

    Overall this is a good issue, we get into the character of Terry. He shows that he is growing from being a thrill seeker to being a responsible crime fighter. I still want to know how Terry ended up here now as Rewire. I hope to find that out next issue since that will be the last issue of this arc. I hope this issue is the calm before the storm.

    I think Batman Beyond might be the first DC book I make a real effort to pick up in while. Read Full Review

    Bernard Chang's art in this issue is eye-catching, especially with the story splitting up into two separate parts. Each of the two parts offers a different tone and feel to the art. The highlight of Chang's work must be the flashback that occurs throughout BATMAN BEYOND #14. When Matt recounts the events that led Terry to reveal to Matt that he is Batman, the panels become brighter with a blue theme. Also, when we see the flashback of Rewire, the panels take on a yellow and brown tone. In both flashback scenarios, the characters are drawn slightly different and a bit faded from those in the present. These differences really create a feel that the events are in the past and are distant memories. Read Full Review

    Surprises involving Rewire along with villains from the TV series make for a fun read and a real reward for any Batman Beyond fan. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 6, 2016

    Batman Beyond continues to trudge through all the Rebirths going on in its attempt to be noticed and while this issue doesn't really present much action that isn't all about flashbacks, it's a nice issue overall that serves to give us some background in what's going on with our characters and what got them to this point.  The art continues to be strong and I find myself really interested in where the story's going.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 6, 2016

    My interest is piqued as far as new characters joining the Batman Beyond fold. The table is set for a showdown next issue that shouldn't be missed and there's a good flashback that reminds us this series is strong in both the writing and art departments. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Jul 11, 2016

    We loved the inclusion of Barbara Gordon, and seeing the older version of this much loved characters certainly is a treat for fans. She's working with Tim in the Batcave, and seems a little skeptical of integrating Matt into the team. Which is understandable. The other annoying part of Batman Beyond #14 is that we don't see either of the two suit up throughout the issue. Whilst we got to see Batman in action in the flashback sequence, there's not much in present day to keep the reader interested. In that respect, the issue felt like a filler between bigger parts of the overall story. Read Full Review
