Robin no more?! It's a turning point for the brothers McGinnis as Terry and Matt face a tough road ahead in the wake of The Joker's attack. But the real question is: Does Batman really need a Robin, or is it time for Neo-Gotham's Caped Crusader to fly solo once more?

    But Why Tho? - Kate Sanchez Mar 27, 2019

    Overall, if this is your first exposure to the newest Batman Beyond comic series, I recommend that you at least pick up the start of “The Final Joke” arc in issues number 27 through 30 of the series. That's where I started and I'm hooked. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Mar 28, 2019

    Overall, this issue had larger themes and focused on one of Batmans support systems which are not usually highlighted in regards to the psychological stresses of the job. The ending hinted at Jokers return (again) which soured things for me but it looks like Harley will be coming back which could make for some interesting scenes to see an older Harley in this world.

    GWW - Nick Friar Mar 27, 2019

    Batman Beyond #30 ends with a familiar face stick her nose where she shouldn't, teasing the idea that another character could return, again. Hopefully, Jurgens doesn't walk down that path too soon. Read Full Review

    The action is solid, Doc Shaner's arrival as the book's new artist is a welcome change and the teased return of another classic villain in the final panels hints at some interesting future events. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 27, 2019

    There are few better ways to add a touch of excellence to your comic than by having Doc Shaner guest on art for an issue or two. So it's no surprise that Batman Beyond #30 is one of the best of the series " but it helps that Dan Jurgens' story rises to the situation and delivers a strong story set in the aftermath of the Joker's death of a heart attack.

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Mar 27, 2019

    But that's only because the rest of the book isn't. This is some great stuff overall. Besides a lackluster ending, it's a nice coda to the recent story arc. Let's see where we get off to next! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Mar 27, 2019

    Doc Shaner provides the art, and is the lateststellar talent to contribute to the title. Unfortunately, they dont seem tolast. My favorites tend to last only a handful of issues before moving on toother projects. Id really like itif Doc hangs around a bit longer than usual. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 28, 2019

    This issue was a somewhat sad, but realistic epilogue to “The Final Joke”. Although it seems that Matt's tenure as Robin is over, Terry's adventures as Batman will continue. And with the lingering threat of Harley Quinn looming, he might wish he still had a Robin to assist him. Jurgens continues to deliver a fascinating extension of the Batman Beyond saga.

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Mar 27, 2019

    Batman Beyond #30 took a turn for the series, forcing characters to stop and assess what is important and who is capable of what. Tough decisions were made. More importantly for us fans, past mistakes were actively discussed as a debate raged. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Mar 27, 2019

    While this is just an epilogue to the previous arc, it does more good for this series than anything we've gotten from it in a long time and gives me hope that I can start caring about Batman Beyond again.  The art is fantastic and the use of the Bat Family here really upped the ante of the issue.

    Comic Crusaders - Kevin Given Mar 27, 2019

    An awesome adventure with Robin trying to hide his fear of Batman's enemies. The Bat-Teams inability to accept the final fate of the Clown Prince of Crime and the remaining Jokerz inability to function without their fearless leader. It seems like our heroes have wrapped things up and solved the case but…to be continued. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Mar 27, 2019

    Obviously, this isnt actually the end of an era. The Joker is worth too much money to ever get rid of the guy for good. So whats the point in killing him off here? It makes for a potentially good story. Its just too bad that the story in question isnt framed better. Heroes have been dying in comics for decades. The death of an iconic villain seems relatively rare in comparison. Theres a lot that could have been explored here. Jurgens and company have missed an opportunity with this issue. Read Full Review
