The last party in Gotham City is here! Commissioner Barbara Gordon is stepping down from the GCPD, and Wayne-Powers CEO Dominic Lumos is throwing her a retirement party. Batman doesn't trust Lumos one bit, so he's going undercover to get information on his new enemy-but runs afoul of the GCPD's new top cop Beam Boonma!

    Batman Beyond Neo-Year #3 really delivers in terms of action, mystery, and suspense. It shows Terry truly becoming his own man as the new Dark Knight and carrying on the legacy of Batman well. Hopefully, more will be explained in future issues though, such as the identities of the new villains, the disappearance of notable characters such as Dana, Max, and Terry's family, and how Lumos (and potentially others) know of Barbara's past as Batgirl.

    Batman Beyond: Neo Year #3brings more of what we can expect from this title so far. It's layered more detail onto the mystery; more emotional stakes onto Terry's mental state, and introduced us to fascinating characters on both the moral compass. I'm very confident that future issues will bring the same level of satisfaction we've been getting from this title so far. Read Full Review

    Overall, lots of potential in this issue but it's definitely a breather before the next big showdown. Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond Neo-Year #3 is all talk and no action with a retirement party that drops one or two useful nuggets of information for a future issue. The costume designs and set pieces look great, and the art team does their level best to make the conversations dynamic, but this issue is more style than substance. Read Full Review

    You can tell the kind of story that Lanzing and Kelly are trying to tell, but they're struggling with the execution. They want to say something meaningful about about how the rich abuse their power for personal gain, but they're written as such caricatures that it loses much of its bite. They want to write a detective story where Terry investigates how to track down the Gotham AI, but he hardly does any investigating and is so passive that plot events need to happen to him. The book is not bad, but it can be frustrating to clearly see the writers' lofty ambitions while failing to live up to them. Read Full Review
