    Batman Beyond #44 is another fine issue that demonstrates Jurgens' skill as a writer, as well as the artistic talent of the two Seans. Under Jurgens' care, this title has remained a worthy continuation of the Batman Beyond cartoon series. Read Full Review

    The book is quite exciting. Jurgens really knows what he is doing in writing this. Sean Chen is doing amazing work on the art as well. This is a consistently good book that deserves more attention. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond #44 is an interesting read. Though, I'll confess that "The Eradication Agenda" has brought about many changes and elements that I didn't expect. Therefore, I can't possibly predict what is going to happen next, for good or for ill. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Jun 23, 2020

    Batman Beyond #44 is a step up from an already solid previous issue and cements this arc as the most promising in recent memory. The stakes are clear, the characters are not keeping secrets from each other, and the action never lets up. There's a lack of true character development here, but the great art and fast pace makes up for the issue's simplicity. Damian's presence introduces a welcome wild card element to the ensemble and hopefully the next issue takes advantage of his and Terry's complicated relationship. Read Full Review

    Tensions have eased a little, but our heroes still aren't safe. We have to wonder what the next steps are for dealing with this new, but familiar threat. Readers also have the lingering questions about Elainna and her progress. All these plot threads are going to come together in such a satisfying way, and I'm eager to see it happen. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 23, 2020

    While you'll get your obligatory fight scene that fills up a lot of page space and some recap to make sure that everyone is up to speed with the new status quo of things going on in this title, the majority of this issue is enjoyable and I find myself caring more about Elainna Grayson's progression than I ever thought I would, not to mention that it's just nice to see so many older Bat-Family members joining this title and taking a role in what the next generation is up to.  Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this issue, but it is still a set up for a story that hasn't truly begun. Read Full Review

    There's also a weird amount of re-explaining features about the Batsuite that were covered last time, but other than that it's a quick read. Read Full Review

    Oozing with exposition, Batman Beyond #44 is elevated by excellent artwork. Although Jurgens' exposition sometimes feels superfluous during this issue, some of my favorite moments are those illustrating how the characters have changed. Moreover, Sean Chen's excellently rendered action sequences help break things up. Now that we are past the two introductory issues of this storyline, I am excited to see where everything is going.
