The strange goings-on in Neo-Gotham continue, and not even Batman is immune. The Dark Knight of Tomorrow needs to stop the Splitt's high-tech heists once and for all, but his opening move will have everyone confused and bewildered. Will Batman save the day...or be the catalyst to lead his city into ruin?

    The story is pretty great and the artwork by Leonardi is just tops. He's my favorite artist that has ever been on this title. This has been great and I can't wait to see where he and Jurgens take us next. I know it'll be someplace great. Read Full Review

    I'm getting accustomed to Ande Parks inks over Ric Leonardi. I've made no secret how much I enjoyed his collaboration with Phil Hester, but it's comforting to know neither is co-dependent on the other. Read Full Review

    VerdictJurgens' take on Batman Beyond has been great fun, and much more satisfying than DC's earlier attempts to carry on the story. This has given me a desire to rewatch the original cartoon again, and as luck would have it, a remastered Blu-Ray set has just been announced. This is a great time to be a Batman Beyond fan!

    Despite the required suspension of disbelief, Batman Beyond #34 is a good continuation of the "Divide, Conquer, and Kill" story-line. Read Full Review

    The cliffhanger conclusion has left me anxious, but not as much as I expected. Mostly I'm just curious to see how they're going to resolve everything. Read Full Review

    The ending comes with a shock twist. I sort of expected something similar happening, but didn't expect it to come around so quickly. Instead this turn of events spells out serious doom for our heroes. What's more, with Terry otherwise M.I.A. we can only imagine what could still happen. Jurgens is usually polite enough to tell us when the end of an arc is coming, with a well placed “To be concluded”… but there's no end in sight. Batman Beyond #34 continues a strong run. It's a roaring success. Read Full Review

    Next issue should be a good one with Splitt and fake-Batman teaming up. Read Full Review

    This is definitely better than the title was during the recent Joker arc, and False Face makes for an amusingly incompetent but still dangerous foe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 24, 2019

    Man, I love False Face Beyond.  This issue is elevated because of the fun that can happen when a villain tries to play a hero and when a hero is in over his head, with no idea what's going on.  Yeah, the supporting cast kind of come off like dummies in this issue, but the majority of the book is so much fun and the art continues to be great here.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 24, 2019

    Batman Beyond has ventured into a potentially interesting territory in. A world featuring a villain of fluid identity. Theres a great deal of potential in the villain cast against an amnesiac hero in a story of the future. If Jurgens and Leonardi can find the right place to cast the story, this could turn into a very interesting narrative. Read Full Review

    Four issues into the "Divide, Conquer and Kill" storyline and Batman Beyond still feels like it's running in place with #34. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Jul 24, 2019

    Overall, I've grown tired of this arc and I was hoping that after the reveal of False Faces power-set, we'd see smart characters acting like themselves. Like I've explained, in Batman Beyond #34 this isn't the case. The more frustrating piece to all of this is that The Splitt is one of my favorite villains from DC Comics so far this year. They're interesting; Adam and Cade are a different kind of speedster, and their dueling personalities make their interactions with Terry great to see. False Face is also an intriguing villain.It's the failed potential of "Divide, Conquer, and Kill" that makes Batman Beyond #34 hurt the most as a fan of the series. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Andy Nickelsen Jul 25, 2019

    After four issues of this story, the focus on two villains at the same time has taken its toll on the overall arc. Hopefully, something changes before the arc ends. Read Full Review
