    Batman Beyond#47 is another fine issue of this series. Dan Jurgens has been doing a fantastic job of continuing the story of Terry McGinnis where the cartoon left off. I look forward to seeing how things turn out next month as he brings together the Batman of the future with the Batman of the present. Read Full Review

    The script to this is decent. There are some obvious things in it but Jurgens keeps it pretty lively. The art by Sean Chen is good and he has a real good feel to the book. This series is ending soon and I am interested to see how they wrap it all up. Read Full Review

    This isn't a perfect series " it took a while to get out from under the previous status quo " but it's an old-school tribute to the original cartoon and to everything Batman represents. Jurgens still has it, almost three decades after his DC debut. Read Full Review

    There's little to fault with the dramatic and heroic ending that Batman Beyond #47 delivers. Tension has mounted over the past three issues so well that we thought their odds of success were almost non-existent. The clash between the future League and Batman would not have gone in his favour, which is why his team is so essential, and why Batman stands out as a character. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - James Remolde Sep 23, 2020

    It's a good ending to the “Mister Zero” arc, but this isn't really a wow issue in terms of character/story progression. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Michael Escalante Sep 22, 2020

    Batman Beyond #47 is a solid ending to one of the better arcs of the series. Even outside of its usual Neo-Gotham setting, Jurgens' ensemble cast keeps the book grounded in its strength of strong characterization and fun banter. While the action does dominate this issue, Sean Chen's fantastic art makes up for this larger emphasis on spectacle. With only four more issues to go, Jurgens' Batman Beyond is primed to end strong and I have high hopes this series will be looked on as one of the better DC series in recent memory. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 22, 2020

    You'll get action out the ass in this issue, but it ends up feeling small because of how little the characters really seem to know or respect each other, and ultimately, the only likable one during this fight is the big dragon-bat Goliath who's always fun. There seems to be a missed opportunity in this amazingly drawn issue to develop Mr. Zero into an interesting villain with staying power, but while I found most of this issue lackluster, the ending to what we got here really piqued my interest and I can't wait to see where it goes.

    Batman Beyond #47 concludes another story arc in a solid series that has reached almost its 50th issue. This is by no means a small feat and this title deserves it, as this title has had a consistent quality throughout its run. Readers of this series will especially be excited for next months issue after the tease at the end of this issue. Read Full Review

    It's a quick, fun little issue that feels like the final five minutes of an episode from the original cartoon. Read Full Review
