Neo-Gotham and its Sword have made their opening assault on Batman Beyond. With limited resources and no Bruce Wayne to come to his aid, Terry McGinnis will need to find more allies. But...all he finds is a brand-new triumvirate of villains collectively known as Gestalt. It's three brains against one, with Batman Beyond looking worse for wear than he ever has. Will he make it to the end of Neo-Year?

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 3, 2022

    Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #2continues to put Terry McGinnis through his paces as the creative team strips him of his resources and pits him against new foes. It's clear Terry is rethinking his entire approach to becoming Batman, but what kind of Batman he will be when the series ends is unclear. Hopefully, this is only the beginning of a new era for Batman Beyond. Read Full Review

    Honestly, this is probably the most interesting way DC has used the Batman Beyond franchise in quite some time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 3, 2022

    Bits and Pieces Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #2 is a serviceable entry in the series with a story that forces Terry to fulfill his mission against Gotham's AI with decreasing resources at his disposal. That said, the components of the story are present with nary an emotional beat to be found, and it's increasingly difficult to care about what's happening. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken May 3, 2022

    Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #2 struggles due to not giving enough focus to any of the ideas that it puts forth. Either a high concept science fiction story about an antagonist with a shared consciousness, or a gritty detective story of Terry working in the shadows while the city itself is out to get him could have been really interesting. However, since neither of those premises are given enough space to fully develop, what's left is a story that feels inconsequential. Read Full Review
