In her pursuit of Blight, Batwoman finally discovers the fate of Batman, but doing so leaves her with a choice: take the villain into custody or free her friend and take him home. That is, if enough of Batman's mind is left that he'll even know what "home" means. Also, how will all of Batman's allies react when they discover the Batwoman's true identity?

    After a tricky start due to past stories, this book has really found its footing as a great modern reinvention of the cartoon. It's certainly made me want to go back and binge the original. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond is a delight for readers who were fans of the original cartoon. Very often titles that spin out of a movie or TV series are rather forgettable. However, Jurgens makes this title feel like an organic continuation of the original. The animated series truly lives on, just in a different medium. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Feb 26, 2020

    Overall, this is a fun issue that doesn't take itself too seriously "which would be hard to do with an amnesia + naive dad storyline. It still manages, however, to bring in some resonating moments (e.g. the last few panels). This is my first arc withBatman Beyond and it's been fun for all of the right reasons. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Cat Wyatt Feb 26, 2020

    Batman Beyond #41 has continued to build the tension, with one of the leading villains having more reason than ever to go on a rampage. Simultaneously, the series has started to wrap up several subplots, meaning that a dramatic moment is likely due in the near future, as everything comes together with explosive force.

    All-Comic - Luke Corona Mar 1, 2020

    Batman Beyond #41 resolves a lot of threads and gives a good set up for an arc finale almost 20 years in the making, all the while introducing great new characters. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Adam Ray Feb 26, 2020

    Batman Beyond #41 makes things abundantly clear, and in more ways than one, for every character in the show. I can only see a few ways this story will wrap up, and I'm confident Batman Beyond will find other ways to surprise us all, as everything is pointing to an explosive end. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Feb 26, 2020

    Batman Beyond #41 is a great penultimate issue and sets the stage well for what aims to be an explosive climax. Batwoman has become a good character over the past few issues, but I can't deny that I'm more excited to see our longstanding ensemble cast finally reunite after a couple arcs of them being splintered. Terry is now ready to take a more hands on approach to the plot, but Jurgens and Chen have made a strong case for Batwoman to take the lead one more time. With some of Chen's strongest art on the book to date, Batman Beyond #41 course corrects the series with promises of even better things to come. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Donald Townsend Feb 27, 2020

    We're wrapping up this arc, and I worry that with Terry's memory reinstituted, we may lose our newest hero. I've enjoyed the story thus far, and I don't want it to tie itself back up into the old status quo, as we've seen before. Overall, though, not a bad issue. It was action-packed but didn't neglect to keep storyline interest with revealing information. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 26, 2020

    The art in this issue is as enjoyable as it always is, but the storytelling is sadly the same as it always is too, where the majority of the issue is based all on recap as we move our story an inch forward.  Yeah, things come to an interesting head by the end, but that's after wading through so much of what you've already read in this arc.

    I'm not sure if it's the art style (which looks terrible for non-masked characters) or the slow pace, but this latest arc in Batman Beyond isn't doing it for me. Read Full Review
