    A classic superhero adventure story with some great interpersonal advancement for the characters, this is a solid end to a solid arc, one well worth a read for fans of both Batman Beyond and classic story-telling. Read Full Review

    Action fans will find this a thrilling intense ride and a completely satisfying comic book through and through. Some may feel that it's a bit rushed, especially the ending. But no one can deny that this story reaches a dramatic conclusion that ties up all the loose ends neatly. No cliffhangers and it will leave the reader with a sense of completion and yet make us eager for what's to come in the next issue. I found this to be a satisfactory issue all in all.

    The shock and angry vowel reaction of issue 23 is hard to top, but the quality of the action in this issue certainly puts it up to match, pairing it with Conrad's perfect recreation of the future Gotham look and action he puts to page, makes this issue an exciting read. When you consider the tease for the 25th special issue, dropping soon, it certainly makes many want to read on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Sep 26, 2018

    This hasbeen a standard five-issue story arc, which n my youth, was an epic adventure.But these days its standard, perfect for re-packaging in TPB form. Im growingmore comfortable with the format, so long as the creative team remains in placethroughout the entire story. Its when each chapter is drawn by a differentartist that I feel the narrative becomes visually disjointed. Thankfully, Batman Beyond is pretty consistent, andits become a personal favorite because of that. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 27, 2018

    This particular iteration of the Batman Beyond title started by bringing the status quo back to nearly the same as the cartoon. But the title has just used that as a starting point. I love that the series is moving forward and evolving from that point. The series has brought back a lot of the tone and heart of the original animated series, but keeps moving the story forward into new directions. Read Full Review

    Now that the main narrative of the Futures End world is thankfully over with and Terry McGinnis is fully back in the lead in Batman Beyond, the title has been getting more into exploring Gotham's past and bringing back classic Batman villains in new forms. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 26, 2018

    While there's some fun moments to be had in this issue, the lack of development in the villain and some of the forced scenarios to get this arc to come to a close made this issue just another in a long line of forgettable entries into this series.  Yeah, you have some big moments, but all in all there wasn't much to this issue and that's a shame because of what it could have been.   Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Daniel Cheeseman Sep 26, 2018

    The resolution of the 'Target: Batman' storyline is as unsatisfying as sitting through the credits of a Marvel movie and finding out there's no sting at the end. All matters are addressed as expected but there's little logic to events and no consideration for whether or not the reader will be excited or bored by the plot's chosendevelopments. The story visitsthe well-worn theme of collateral damage in Batman's war with the criminal underworld but, like the plot itself, it's a half-baked ideathat goes nowhere. Read Full Review
