    The threats to Gotham never truly end, but storylines do. Batman Beyond: Neo Year #6 gives us the most rounded and reasonable end we could ever ask for… but good things never truly end. Read Full Review

    Batman contact Barbara Gordon and asks for her aid in order to protect the city from an AI takeover. 15 minutes to midnight, Batman enacts his plan with the aid of several like-minded groups including the Clownz and former GCPD. Then, a battle commences with Batman and Donovan Lumos at the forefront. Afterwards, the city begins to return to normal and the aftereffects of the series events are discussed. Finally, Terry and Beam have a well-deserved night out together.The Story: The conclusion of this mini-series was done in a concise and appropriate manner. The final battle was dynamic, but I was surprised by many of the participants. In the end, we learn that the story of Terry McGinnis will continue in 2023. As the story also leaves room for a storyline continuance, it will be interesting to see what new plotlines will develop from this piece. I am also curious as to the next step in Terrys journey. I appreciate how this series deals with his coming to terms with Bruces death and what Read Full Review

    Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #6, and the series as a whole, presented a fresh new take on Batman Beyond, seeing him work without Bruce, become his own hero and meet new allies and adversaries along the way. The only downside is the lack of characters from the show. There wasnt really much explanation as to what happened to them, but it still made a good story and stayed true to the feel of the show and the title character. Readers can expect more of Batman Beyond in the future, is the ending reveals that this series will continue next year. Schway! Read Full Review

    What works here is the character development and the unique way he's united basically every element in the city against Neo-Gotham. What doesn't work quite as well is how large-scale the threat isand how quickly it's defeated. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 6, 2022

    Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #6 ends the arc with a new status quo for Terry with a fancy new Batsuit and a new Bat-Team to fight crime across Neo-Gotham. The art is very good, and the ending ties up (most of) the loose ends, but the ending is surprising for its lack of surprise and the speed/ease with which Batman wins in the end. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken Sep 6, 2022

    Far from the crescendo that the series was building up to in recent issues, Batman Beyond: Neo-Year #6 highlights all of the problems the series has had up until now. What interesting ideas were suggested up until this point turn out to be damp squibs as they're resolved hastily at the last minute. The writing frequently attempts to punch above its weight class but fails; it has all of these deep ideas that it wants to tackle like corporate greed, emergent AI, and systemic corruption, but none of it is explored in more than a superficial manner. It's flashy, but no matter how hard it wants to be something more, beneath all the spectacle there is not much there. Read Full Review
