    The Batman Universe - Jim Remolde Apr 27, 2017

    Overall I liked the art in this issue. It effectively showed the action and the reader is able to follow the action by just looking at the art. The story is also interesting. We get some reveals especially in the nature of Terrys suit, but are left with some questions that need to be answered. The end of issue reveal of Ras al Ghul is also incomplete since we only see him wearing a Demons head and we do not get a shot of his face. Is he really Ras or someone else? Only reading the next issue will hopefully answer some of those questions. Overall, aninteresting story and engaging art for this time around. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Mark Henely Apr 26, 2017

    Overall, there are a lot of interesting threads to follow in what some would think was just a tie in to a long cancelled children's television show. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Steve J Ray Apr 26, 2017

    It's a joy when a tried and tested comics veteran like Dan Jurgens works with a fresh and promising new talent like Bernard Chang. The writing and the art combine to bring characters and situations – that could become stale under the guidance of lesser creators – and elevate them. This book is fun, it's reminiscent of the classics and yet totally in the now, all at the same time. Batman Beyond #7 gets a very healthy rating of: Read Full Review

    Longtime fans should be relieved things are going back to what made the series so much fun. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Apr 27, 2017

    In many ways, this issue improved from last month, and in many other ways, it faltered. In the end though, I found this chapter of Batman Beyond to be more gripping than it's been since its debut as Jurgens and Chang continue to expand on their universe and add a great deal of texture to their characters.

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 26, 2017

    In what should have been the first issue of the arc, Terry acts like an idiot while Bruce sheds some emotional light on his absence. Chang's art was good but felt lacking during the action scenes. Read Full Review

    Even though Batman Beyond doesn't seem overtly connected to the Rebirth storyline, it seems to be exemplifying the Rebirth ethos. It is so far proving to be one of DC's better titles. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Apr 28, 2017

    While I think that the League of Assassin needs to all go on a cruise and take a vacation from all the Batman books for a while, I am intrigued to see where this story is going. Read Full Review

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Apr 26, 2017

    A stand alone story that can carve any plot it so wishes. This book, not exactly being in the same continuity as the others, brings an element of mystery to the story. Now with some iconic characters back in play, we get to go inside Dan's imagination of what happened over the last couple decades. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 26, 2017

    This is a fast read that reminds all of us about things we already read in the previous issue, but even with that there were things that I found myself really enjoying from this and they actually got me excited for what's to come.  The art was great all around, I just hope that we don't have to spend too much time going forward with Terry being a sad sack for his inability to act in the previous issue.

    GWW - Christopher Rodriguez Apr 26, 2017

    Because of the transition from New 52 to Rebirth, Dan Jurgens' job of taking Terry McGinnis on a new journey is a little tougher than one might expect. Still, I can't pretend that the current storyline is amazing. This issue wasn't awful by any means, but there's not much to be excited about in the world of Batman Beyond right now. Read Full Review
