    Dan Jurgens has completely upended Batman Beyond's status quo over the last year in a very effective way, with a storyline that echoes his plot in Nightwing to a degree but also has its own twists and turns and that continues in Batman Beyond #38. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #38 was a fascinating issue, one that simultaneously danced around the issue while addressing the elephant in the room. This new Batwoman is a tough lady " but she's also not as experienced as the original. At least the fights she's getting into are fun and exciting. And that has left us eager to see the next issue in the series. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #38 is another solid issue from Dan Jurgens, with some stunning art from Sean Chen and Sean Parsons. Trying to solve the mystery of Batwoman has been a fun exercise, and I hope to see if my guess is correct before long. I look forward to seeing how she handles her first major battle with Blight in the upcoming issues. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Nov 27, 2019

    As for the art, Chen, Parsons and Sotomayor are coming together really quickly as the new art team on the book and are producing some good work. Chen’s pencils can be dynamic at points and he really does have a good eye for action sequences here and there. The only thing I would like to see improve, at least that I’ve seen up to date, is to add a little more life to the quieter moments. A lot of the character work in these scenes can come off a little stiff. Read Full Review

    ConclusionA new hero demands a worthy villain. Batman Beyond‘s first is one such antagonist. Blight tore up the screen in the brilliant animated series, and this title's earliest issues. I expect no less conflict than the wisecracking, woke new Batwoman can handle. Batman Beyond #38 didn't do much to blow away with its story beats, but did set the stage for a clash of the ages.

    Batwoman's kicking ass and taking names in this issue, but don't count on finding out hers here.  Instead we're dealing with a huge big bad, but the only problem there is that........ well, he's just there.  No real background is given for the character or his resurrection and it seems that Dan Jurgens is relying too much on the cartoon series than actually developing this Neo Gotham for this continuity's future.  Thankfully though the art is good and there's some fun moments.

    If the book treads any more water, Batman Beyond #38 will find itself existing as just another cog in the slow set up of the new Batwoman. Read Full Review
