    This was a pretty good read on the whole " most of it was the fight between Stalker and Batman, but seeing that it was a fantastic fight, I'm not going to complain. I do like that they took some time to continue building things up, even while mid-action scene (such as having Barbara trying to investigate the girl). It should help keep the story moving at a good pace, which is what I prefer. I hope this ends up being a longer storyline, I'd really like something to sink my teeth into here. Read Full Review

    Batman beyond has done a stellar job of both returning the book to a state approximating the original cartoon, while also adding to the mythos. The best thing about this series is that it feels like a continuation of the Batman Beyond cartoon, rather than an alternative take on it. The cartoon didn't really end, it lives on in comic book form. Read Full Review

    One thing about the Batman Beyond series is its vision of the future. Theoretically its about 40 years from now, based on Bruce Waynes age. But the advancements are extraordinary, which only reinforces the sense of compressed time in ComicBook-land. Afterall, wasn't World War II just a few decades ago? Read Full Review

    With Terry seemingly having met his match in the Stalker, where does he go from here? If anything is certain in comics, it's that the hero always finds a way. I can't wait to see how Dan Jurgens and the gang get Terry out of this one! Read Full Review

    The Stalker provides an interesting foe for Terry to clash with; and a tragic cause is something Batman's oh-so familar with. Read Full Review

    BATMAN BEYOND #16 is fun and thrilling, but it isn't gripping. As a result, we're left with a one-dimensional story that stumbles in elevating its titular hero. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 24, 2018

    While we do get to see Terry be a more capable Batman in this issue, it's little else but a big ass fight scene that puts us right back to where we left off with our hero and villain in the previous issue.  The art was decent, but overall, there wasn't much to this issue at all.

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Jan 25, 2018

    With no developments in Terry and Stalker as they both just brawled the entire issue, it certainly leaves a lot to wish for in the next issue (titled Revelations). I can only hope that we will find out who the mysterious and murderous financial backer to Stalker is by next issue. Read Full Review
