    This issue is a welcome continuation of the unique story of one of DC's most unique titles going right now. Things seem all the more difficult for our heroes by the end of Batman Beyond #33, and I cannot wait to see how it goes ahead. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Wayne Hall Jun 28, 2019

    Dan Jurgens is the writer on the comic, and he's able to imagine things far beyond what we have read in the past. Give him a villain called False Face and, well, you just can't be sure of anything happening! Read Full Review

    And now False Face has taken on a new form. I wonder if the effects of his powers will wear off of the real Bruce now that he's not the one being impersonated anymore. Seems like the only way for Melanie and Matt can get out of this mess unscathed " though the former has done a good job taking charge throughout this mess. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jun 26, 2019

    Jurgens and Leonardi work super well together. That's the best part of this. They know the character well and it all makes for another nice issue. Since Rebirth started this has been one of the most consistent of all of the books. I'm loving it. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Jun 28, 2019

    Batman Beyond may be set in the future, but Jurgens keeps it connected to Batman's rich history. Not only does he keep it connected to the wider DC comics universe, but also manages to make it a true continuation of the cartoon. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jun 26, 2019

    A story of mystery and suspense pulls Batman Beyond into the very entertaining territory. Its nothing new to anyone who might have read Batman over the decades, but Jurgens and Leonardi navigate McGinnis and his colleagues through a really entertaining story with tension that holds together throughout the issue. With questions of identity, memory, and motivation sliding in around the edges of the story, Juergens could potentially lead this series in a captivating new direction that could possibly influence the story into some very fresh territory if everything lines up in the right way. Even if this new direction doesnt live up to its potential, the series continues to be fun thanks to the efforts of a couple of very experienced storytellers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 26, 2019

    It's a weird thing to say that Batman is the worst part of this book, but he really isn't bringing anything to this issue besides for the constant reminder that he keeps getting his ass kicked every issue.  Besides that though, this was one of the best issues of Batman Beyond that I've read in a long time.  I loved the pacing, art and the reveals here and can't wait to see how False Face will continue to plague the Batman Beyond Family.   Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jun 26, 2019

    Overall, Batman Beyond #33 has effectively pulled me back into this arc. Splitt remains an intriguing villain, not-Bruce is finally found out, and by giving the McGinnis boys a reveal, they establish some rules to False Face's powers that open the door for more intriguing doppelgnging. With the ending of this issue moving the narrative in a new direction, the excitement for what comes next will keep me reading issues. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Joey Edsall Jun 28, 2019

    There's a lot of intrigue in the parallels of both the Splitt and Falseface storylines, so it'll be interesting to see where the series goes with it, and how heavily it'll lean into those obvious connections. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jun 27, 2019

    Even though we could all see the major twist in this issue coming, it was still interesting. Though anything involving Arkham tends to be interesting, so that might not be saying much. I'm hoping we'll see something bigger happen because of this one. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 26, 2019

    This arc of Batman Beyond has been dominated by two storylines, one much more interesting than the other " and, in Batman Beyond #33, it becomes very clear which is taking over the book. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Chris Showalter Jun 28, 2019

    Although some foreshadowing may have ruined one of the issue's reveals, Batman Beyond #33 does a good job propelling the mystery forward by providing a new twist that will take the title in an interesting direction. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Jun 28, 2019

    The artwork is great. I'm accustomed to seeing inker Ande Parks teamed with Phil Hester, but his work over Ric Leonardi's pencils seems to be blending well, as they become more of a team. Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Connor Casey Jun 26, 2019

    Three issues into the new "Divide, Conquer and Kill" arc, and Batman Beyond #33 pretty much solidifies my fear that for all of Splitt's gimmicks, he (or rather they) isn't all that interesting. Read Full Review

    While the Splitt story goes almost nowhere, we do get some advancement on the Bruce/switched identity story. Read Full Review
