"Target: Batman" part one! After his first outing as a vigilante, Matt is hungry for another chance to prove himself, but Bruce and Terry butt heads over what's next for Matt. Will Terry shut his brother down for good, or will the original Batman succeed in training him to become the latest Robin? Meanwhile, a hostage crisis turns deadly, and Commissioner Barbara Gordon has to sort out why the Jokerz are resorting to far more violent and extreme measures than ever before.

    All in all, this is a decent first part of the newest storyline. I'm excited to see where it goes. Read Full Review

    This issue also launches a new story arc, one pitting Batman against the future Jokerz, who all seem in fear of a mysterious Bat-monster (The Dark Knight Returns Beyond?). I expect it to be a straightforward adventure, with less character development or expansion of the franchise. If I'm right, thats okay; I could use the rest from epic stories. If I'm wrong, well, thats okay too. Read Full Review

    This was a well written issue, especially when we consider how much was established here. In one issue the creators have successfully established multiple points of interest and tension. Read Full Review

    It was great to see Rebirth bringing Batman Beyond back to a status quo that closely resembled the original cartoon incarnation, but it's even more exciting to see the mythos evolving and expanding. And what better addition could there be than a new Robin? Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #20 has its clichs, but the story is paced well and its hard to dislike the lead characters. The art team does a good job on the visuals, and the complete product is worthy of a recommendation in the end. Feel free to pick it up. Read Full Review

    This incarnation of the Batman Beyond bookis heading into a better place than it was when it started out there are long-term plot threads being added, and the conflict between the characters are well-written. If you're looking for a classic superhero adventure story that doesn't wrap itself up in meta-textual narrative or isn't some complicated event but is still a fun, fulfilling read, this book is definitely recommended.

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 23, 2018

    This new arc seems to be on a path that I want to be on with this title because for the first time in a long time, I'm actually into most of the ideas that are being thrown our way.  The art is decent throughout and the story actually seems pretty interesting.  Hopefully this momentum keeps up because while I've wanted to love this title from the beginning....... It's been pretty rough. Read Full Review
