    All in all this comic was a fun read. Jurgens and Changedo a good job in keeping readers interested in the series along with getting new readers up to speed on what's going on. This is a new Batman Beyond story with a lot of changes but it's worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Sean Buckley Aug 8, 2015

    A beautiful issue centered around the horrors of internment camps and the struggle to survive in an otherwise hostile world, this latest installment in the most recentBatman Beyondseries is both fun to read and wonderful to look at. The biggest problem would be that it leaves the reader wantingmore, though not in the best way. Some of the coolest panels are but one amid the six or seven that populate the page, and are not given the chance to shine. Read Full Review

    Overall, Batman Beyond #3 is a solid entry in the series. Jurgens continues his arc by giving Tim the opportunity to be the best Batman he can be, while turning our expectations against us and giving Brother Eye another advantage over the citizens of Neo Gotham. Chang and Maiolo do a wonderful job at enhancing the issue with their visuals, lending their expertise to make the narrative come to life on the page. It'll be interesting to see how Tim and the rest of the team cope with Brother Eye's new attack on Neo Gotham " if anything, it'll just be another opportunity to see a larger amount of great eye puns in Brother Eye's dialogue.

    "Batman Beyond" #3 doesn't end with a splash page visual cliffhanger or even a "To Be Continued..." blurb; it just ends. I turned pages a couple times to confirm I had concluded the reading and even counted page signatures to ensure there was no printing error. The ending is abrupt and elevates the cliffhanger nature of the story. Jurgens, Chang, Maiolo and Sharpe all ensure "Batman Beyond" #3 is a satisfying read that continues to explore the new world alongside Tim Drake. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond still very much feels like a read that hasn't entirely found its footing, and it's any wonder what kind of book we'll be left with when it does. Read Full Review

    Although I really liked this issue, I feel like it lacked a little bit of a punch that I really wanted. I'm excited to see where this series goes from here, especially if they continue to throw in familiar characters of the JLU and Batman Beyond cartoon series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 5, 2015

    While I love Batman Beyond, I don't know if this version of the character will ever be one that sticks with me.  If it does, it probably won't be in a positive light because as of right now, the series isn't doing much for me other than besmirching Tim Drake's character.  Our main character is a really smart, level headed guy, but for some reason in this title, he's a act first, think later doofus and it's missing it's opportunity to really flesh out this future Tim Drake and what he must being feeling being trapped in a terrible world he doesn't know or understand.  Hopefully the series picks up and gains a little heart because as of right now, it's just a dud.

    Batman Beyond #3 is functional. It delivers plot and action so for a basic understanding, but it never really matters. Rather than a tale written in the present about the future, it reads like a relic of the past. Overscripted and serviceably presented, Batman Beyond is part of a workmanlike tradition in comics that has no place in the future. Read Full Review
