Batman's got a bullseye on his back in part four of "Target: Batman." Thanks to the machinations of the Scarecrow, the entire city of Neo-Gotham is looking to take aim at Batman-including his own partner, Robin! Will hero turn against hero when fear is in the air? Elsewhere, former Royal Flush Gang member Melanie Walker looks to upgrade her image and take on a new heroic mantle, so she seeks advice from newsman Jack Ryder-unaware that he's a total costumed Creeper!

    Kudos to writer Dan Jurgens for reinventing classic foes for the second-generation Batman. He is crafting a larger world for the Terry McGinnis version of Batman,from allies to enemies. Its my own impatience to see that architecture extend to Gotham City overall, and the greater DCU. Read Full Review

    The story is fast paced and wonderful. The art again by Conrad is pretty damn sweet. I loved the way this is moving along. I hope DC keeps this creative team in place for a while longer. They're great! Read Full Review

    The new spin on Scarecrow isn't completely original, but it's fresh and written well enough to get you excited about what's to come. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jul 25, 2018

    When Batman Beyond originally appeared as a cartoon, I wasn't terribly enthused with the idea. Someone other than Bruce Wayne as Batman? So, I was only an occasional viewer. But the reading the comics, especially since the return of Terry has brought me around to being a Batman Beyond fan. It may or may not show the ‘true' future of the Batman family, but it makes for a damn exciting premise for a different look at the Batman mythos. And this issue clearly exemplifies that.

    For the most part, this is probably one of the best issues of Batman Beyond to come out of Rebirth.  Yeah, it still has some problems and Terry isn't the best Batman he can be, but the developments in this issue were fun as hell and I look forward to seeing more of this updated Beyond villain, especially if the art continues being as good as it is here.

    Some good revelations and guest-stars, mixed in with the pay-off of Matt McGinnis finally becoming Robin, earns this book a recommendation for fans of Batman Beyond. Read Full Review

    As a person who watched Batman Beyond the animated series when it originally aired, it felt great to finally see the pay off of Matt McGinnis helping his older brother out as the new Robin Beyond. I liked the concept of a 2 brother combo being the dynamic in the duo as much as I enjoyed seeing Matt as Robin. I do hope that over time they grow or redesign the new Robin suit to flesh it out a bit more, but in the end I'm glad to see him there fighting alongside Batman. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Jul 25, 2018

    Fans who are here purely for Terry may wish to skip issue #22 as it belongs to the Scarecrow, Matt and Bruce. The story moves forward by inches but it's still a fun issue mostly thanks to a delightful flashback interlude starring the original dark knight. Read Full Review

    An unevenly paced issue with continuity errors that continues to build the suspense for the conclusion. Read Full Review
