    It's great to see a team of absolute pros working on your favorite comics. I'd love to see this team handle any set of characters out there. Batman Beyond is pure, old fashioned comics entertainment at its best. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond is a fun title that nostalgically recalls the Batman Beyond cartoon, but also builds on the foundation of the show, carrying the story forward. It's almost like getting extra seasons past the cancellation of the show. Read Full Review

    The issue is an exciting read and feels much more like classic Batman Beyond than anything in years. Read Full Review

    It all boilsdown to writers trying to tap into " or in this case, anticipate " the trendsof teens and young adults. Its a constantly moving target, and is doomed tofailure 99 times out of 100. This means writers are left to the dismal task ofcreating their own future slang. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Dec 27, 2017

    While Batman Beyond is pretty straight forward and offers a lot of action, by the end of the issue it just came off pretty underwhelming and feels stale in the long run.  Hopefully this changes as the series continues, but right now this title feels like a bore to read and the art isn't doing much for me either.  That being said, there's nothing really wrong with the issue.  It's just basic as all hell.

    In an issue full of seemingly interesting characters and potential storylines, BATMAN BEYOND #15 falls short of making a lasting impression. Read Full Review

    So much happens in Batman Beyond #15, and yet nothing changes at all. Terry seems to be stuck in place waiting for the reveal of our big bad guy, and we have to endure a series of battles that feel like a placeholder with gimmick cliffhangers. Sure, there are some funny lines, and the art is well-done, but these elements aren't enough to keep me interested in this story. There are three more parts to this storyline, and hopefully, we'll start to see some real movement to the story in the next issue. Read Full Review

    AIPT - JJ Travers Dec 27, 2017

    With all the moving pieces here you'd think this issue would be an exciting read but it's quite the opposite. There's so many inconsistencies with the characters that I found myself spending more time picking it apart than actually enjoying the story itself. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Dec 28, 2017

    Overall, the issue did not carry any tension through from the previous one. Dialogue and artwork arent enough to balance out the issue to make the story engaging going forward. Hopefully, the creative team will take Stalker and make him a compelling villain in service to a greater threat. The hidden figure could prove to be an interesting plot twist if handled correctly but, thus far, I do not find myself caring much for who it could be at this point in the story. Read Full Review
