Batman's got a bull's-eye 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 the Dark Knight-including his own partner, Robin! Will hero turn against hero when fear is in the air? Elsewhere, former Royal Flusher 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!

    A terrific page turner of a tale that fully immerses readers into the futuristic fun that is Batman Beyond. Read Full Review

    I think any ending that can make me shout incoherent, angry vowels at a comic's page, is a pretty strong one. Curse you Dan Jurgens, why must you play with my emotions like this? The situation looks so bleak. The trust of steadfast allies means nothing to the powers of this Scarecrow. All seems dire and I have to know how Batman gets out of this one, if at all!

    Jurgens is doing a great job. The art by Will Conrad is the best this book has had. Check out the opening sequences of Terry brawling with the people of Gotham and trying to escape. It's awesome. This comic has been great. I'm excited to see how this team finishes this story off. Read Full Review

    Each issue of this arc ramps up the action and tension a little more than the last and this issue is no exception. Filled with action, drama, and some great twists and turns, this is a fun, classic superhero story that is well worth a read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Aug 22, 2018

    However, asmuch as I enjoy Dan Jurgens writing, I fear he is writing comics the way theyused to be written, perhaps applying out-dated sensibilities. Maybe he needs toclip Robins wings, and see how that works within the team dynamic. Read Full Review

    The excitement has finally picked up in Batman Beyond, and issue #23 easily stands out as one of the better issues of the new series. Read Full Review

    Honestly, this title has been a revelation to me. The idea of someone other than Bruce Wayne as Batman shouldn't work, but Jurgens deftly manages to make Terry's story nearly as compelling as his predecessor's, giving us some damn fun stories along the way. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 22, 2018

    Batman Beyond has come out of nowhere with this storyline and surprised the hell out of me for how enjoyable it's been.  We get excellent art in this issue and some really great progression to our story.  Yeah, somethings didn't hit as hard as they could have, but all in all, I had a fun time with this issue.

    I am overall enjoying this series, but there's a pattern of stories that go on a little too long. I'm hoping this ends strong with a new addition to Batman's rogues gallery. Read Full Review

    Despite some structural issues with how this book was put together, an interesting take on a classic Bat-villain had me enjoy this issue quite a bit. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Aug 22, 2018

    My patience is running out with this series. A few issues ago, I appreciated the slow pace because Jurgens was taking the time to flesh out his characters, but now he's fallen back into the same old pattern of presenting one-dimensionalprotagonists facing transient,surmountable perils.
