    Jurgens continues to do a masterful job as caretaker of the Batman Beyond mythos. He manages to keep the feel of the original cartoon, while expanding and exploring the world of Terry McGinnis' Batman. This iteration of the Batman Beyond comic has proven to be a worthy continuation of the classic animated series. Read Full Review

    Dan Jurgens has taken this title and really advanced it to become a viable property. He has done a great job. The art by Sean Chen is perfect and makes this book even better. This is another solid issue in this series. Read Full Review

    All in all, Jurgens has taken the title in the right direction with the Batwoman-Terry stories. Hopefully, he and Sean Chen can maintain the momentum from Batman Beyond #40. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jan 29, 2020

    It's remarkable enough that I was quickly engrossed in this book without having read previous issues, but I didn't even mind the lack of the title character. More Batwoman Beyond, please! Read Full Review

    The best part of this story so far has been its high stakes and fast pace, and with all the players in place, we should be heading to a strong finale. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Jan 23, 2020

    Batman Beyond #40 is an interesting issue. It's one that I had been very much looking forward to (for fairly obvious reasons, I believe). I don't quite know how I feel about that big revelation. But I am curious to see where this plot leads. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Jan 22, 2020

    Batman Beyond #40 is an issue that divulges secrets and highlights the fact that Terry's in serious danger from Blight. The story's bubbling up to fever pitch and I don't see any way in which it could fall. Anything can happen and I'm excited to see it. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jan 23, 2020

    Batman Beyond #40 falls into the same bag of tricks that Jurgens used in previous issues. Despite its repetitive structure, there is a lot of forward progression in the plot that gives the series a sense of momentum and its reveal of Batwoman's identity is satisfying, if somewhat unremarkable. Jurgens spins a lot of plates here, but it seems like our ensemble cast will reunite sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 22, 2020

    While we finally do get a reveal of who Batwoman is in this issue, it was at the cost of half our cast looking like dummies for issue after issue.  Besides that though and some big recap we do have our heroine get thrown into some action, but this feels uninspired and at the end of the day this series just feels tired.  Thankfully though, the art is really good in this issue so at least there's that.
