    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 29, 2019

    The ending of this is quite exciting and a hell of a cliffhanger to leave off on. I love the way this book has been progressing. The story is sharp and it never gets heavy handed. This is another great chapter in this book. It's been truly an awesome ride thus far. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Aug 29, 2019

    Batman Beyond #35 was a complex issue, with the plot splitting off in various directions. Because of that, it was fast-paced and intense. And then there's the conclusion of this issue"that alone would have been enough to ensure that fans came back for more. Read Full Review

    I love how they've managed to fit so much into this issue, while still leaving us with just as many questions. This is the balance I've been wanting to see in Batman Beyond. And I hope they maintain it. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 28, 2019

    After a current arc that took a while to get started, the plot in Batman Beyond picks up speed (pun intended) with Batman Beyond #35, a packed issue that reveals the secret origin of Splitt, gives a hero a major new role, and returns a massive player to the world of Batman's future.

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Aug 28, 2019

    Batman Beyond #35 pushes characters on the fringes, or tucked into the recesses of this world's past, right into the forefront. The tension with two villains, and Bruce Wayne's certainty of their plans, means two heroes are needed. We have much to look forward to as the current arc reaches a fever pitch in thisinstallment.

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Aug 28, 2019

    Jurgens has a long history writing superhero comics. Batman has been through a lot over the years. Jurgens and company may not be adding a whole lot of new elements to a traditional superhero story. But the entire creative team does a good enough job of distracting from the tired, old central themes of the story to make it FEEL fresh, Read Full Review

    A solid installment with some great character growth for a supporting character and a surprise guest-star, you can't go wrong with this if you're looking for a classic, uncomplicated, event-free superhero story. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Aug 28, 2019

    Batman Beyond #35 is another solid chapter in Jurgens' run that is unfortunately marred by inconsistent art. Despite the feeling that this arc should have been shortened to a two-parter, Jurgens has the advantage of having built a solid cast of likable characters who I don't mind simply spending more time with. Additionally, The Splitt has turned from a rather uninteresting villain of the week, to a sympathetic child victim who has found himself in the middle of a dire situation. With a special guest appearance in the final pages, Jurgens has set himself up well for what I hope is a satisfying finale next issue. Read Full Review

    Last thing: Chris Stevens and Sunny Gho's variant cover was great. Best Batman Beyond cover in a while. Read Full Review

    Even if the build up has been overall lackluster, that new addition will look to shake things up as this arc heads towards a climax. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Tony Farina Sep 3, 2019

    False Face, like Clay Face is a villain that I can take or leave. Being someone else is a power that can be totally amazing or redundant. I am not sure how to feel about it here. It feels a bit redundant here. Still, what a great last page. There is so much to unpack there and what hope for the future of the series. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Aug 29, 2019

    Initially this seemed to be a sort of throw-away story for me. I had found the False Face angle to be mildly interesting, and I hadnt really cared at all about Splitt. But this issue has switched that around for me. While Im even less interested in False Face, Im actually intrigued to see what happens with Adam and Caden. Also, I really wish that had been Stephanie Brown standing over Terry. But overall, this was enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 28, 2019

    Somehow with decent art and interesting villains this issue still feels kind of lackluster because nowhere in this book could I find a competent hero beyond our cliffhanger reveal and that factor to this book is getting kind of old. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Kate Snchez Aug 28, 2019

    Overall, this arc is reshaping itself and moving away from out-of-character decisions that marred previous issues. So long as the story keeps moving away from False Face pulling the wool over everyone's eyes without even trying and towards exploring The Splitt, the arc can be a good one despite the rocky start.
