"Lost Daze" finale! As everything around Neo-Gotham crumbles under Batman's iron fist, the Fastest Man Alive might be the only one capable of saving Terry McGinnis and his city. But as powerful as he is, even the Flash might be no match for the Splitt and the mysterious False Face!

    A lot of comic titles have ups and downs in quality, but Jurgens manages to consistently produce a engaging and exciting issue every month. Jurgens' take on the Batman Beyond mythos is a worthy continuation of the original cartoon adventures of Terry McGinnis. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Sep 25, 2019

    At its heart, there's nothing more revolutionary than a conflict between super-powered individuals. There's nothing particularly original being presented here, but with a story that delivers the standard superhero/supervillain action so well. It's as entertaining as ever with Jurgens and Leonardi at the top of their games, this is an enjoyable issue nonetheless. With any luck, the new direction hinted at the end of this issue could bring about chapters of this level of quality. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #36 ends things in a very uncertain way. Sure we get a clear ending to the storyline, but we don't know which way is up. It's a bold choice from Jurgens to leave readers on tilt like this. What does the future have in store for Batman of the Future? I'm sure many will want to read more to find out. Read Full Review

    I think that it is a great story that the creative team executed perfectly. The writing here is excellent and the art is perfect. This is a fine book that is well done. I hope this creative team works together again for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Sep 26, 2019

    Batman Beyond #36 was a dramatic issue, fulfilling all of the promises of the last issue, and then upping the ante. While it did resolve a couple of the larger plot arcs, there are still tendrils left to hook us into the next wave. Read Full Review

    Regarding Splitt, it looks he's got some other powers now? Or at least one of the brothers does. Poor guys can't catch a damn break. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Sep 26, 2019

    Its an unsatisfying ending, but it seems clear that its supposed to be that way. The creative team is setting up the next story and allowing themselves more room to expand upon several of these unresolved issues. I really appreciate the storytelling Ive been getting out of these last few issues and the styles that are developing. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Sep 27, 2019

    Leonardi’s pencils are nice, clean, and fit well with Jurgens’ style of writing, and sometimes give off a Jurgenesque style as well. Favorite panel/full-page spread is when Splitt, well, splits into two while flanking Batman. Parks’ inks are very flattering to Leonardi’s pencils as well as he doesn’t overburden them throughout the issue. Add Sotomayor’s colors to the mix, and you have the recipe for a really nice book.

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Sep 25, 2019

    Batman Beyond #36 is an adequate comic that does very little to satisfy any reader that isn't already invested in its characters and universe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 25, 2019

    Everything comes to a screeching halt with this issue and it doesn't feel natural at all.  Yeah, this is the finale, but it feels like there was a lot of story left behind because everything here feels like it was thrown together last minute and nothing about it came off as satisfying.  The art even took a bit of a dip in my mind and overall, there just wasn't much about this issue that I found myself enjoying, which is strange for all the things that were shoved into it.

    Batman Beyond #36 marks the end of the "Divide, Conquer and Kill" storyline, an arc that went on for twice as long as necessary and ended with little more than a shrug. Read Full Review
