"Lost Daze" continues as Batman's battle with the Splitt reaches a fever pitch, but the Dark Knight isn't getting any support from the Batcave. The normally reclusive Bruce Wayne is too busy lavishing cash all over Neo-Gotham to care that his protégé is in trouble. Does this out-of-character behavior have something to do with the strange goings-on at Arkham Asylum?

    The whole package is really great. Jurgens works so well with Leonardi, it's fantastic. This is another fine storyline in a well crafted comic. I can't wait to see where the creators take us next. Read Full Review

    We've gone from one dire situation to another. Batman Beyond #32 perfectly expanded on the growing drama from the previous issue. Nothing is certain, and with names from the 1960's popping up as a character's last line, we can only imagine what's to come. This revelation has set up what looks to be another strong story arc.

    Jurgens has been writing Batman Beyond for over 30 issues. It's refreshing to see that kind of commitment to a title in an era when comic creators rotate among titles so rapidly. I genuinely hope he continues to apply his skills as a storyteller on the book indefinitely. Read Full Review

    VerdictDan Jurgens has managed something unique with Batman Beyond. He has given us a series that seems both connected to the wider comics universe while also feeling like a continuation of the cartoon as well. Never before have we seen such a complete merging between the DCU version of a series and its counterpart from another media, pleasing comic and cartoon fans alike. Read Full Review

    Which brings things to the last point: we're dealing with False Face while Bruce is stuck at Arkham Asylum. We haven't seen Bruce's face in the prison yet, but Dan Jurgens made it fairly clear as to what's going on. While the stuff with Splitt has been good, A Bruce Wayne-False Face switcheroo has the making of an intense chapter. Read Full Review

    Ultimately I thought Batman Beyond #32 was a pretty good read with solid artwork all throughout. I think there's enough moving pieces at play with the story that make you wonder what will happen next and how all these separate elements will connect as well as what that will mean when they come together.

    Rick Leonardi does a good job as the new artist on Batman Beyond #32, but overall the plot lacks the punch of the recent Joker arc. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff May 22, 2019

    Its really nice to know that there are still issues like Batman Beyond #32. Its the type of chapter that could have appeared in just about any similar Marvel or DC title going back to the dawn of the silver age. But without anything more to offer in the deliciously attractive potential of Gotham in the future, this is just another issue in the series that fails to live up to the possibilities of the premise.

    A solid issue. We continue the story while adding to the intrigue of who Splitt is, and why Bruce is acting so strangely. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 22, 2019

    With some interesting villains involved and some really fun art depicting the action, there's some joy to be had in this issue........ The biggest problem I see is that our heroes aren't really interesting and stuck in a formulaic style of storytelling, where Terry has to get his ass kicked every issue to end his parts of the issue and it's been a bit stale for awhile.  The villains though are really cool and I'm really interested in continuing their stories.

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez May 22, 2019

    Overall,Batman Beyond #32isn't great, but it isn't bad. The art and villain alone make up for frustrating character moments and so long as this charade isn't kept up much longer, the dynamic between Terry and The Splitt is sure to give a satisfying conclusion to the “Divide, Conquer, and Kill” arc.
