    The creators are revving up the action with quick dialogue and shattering artwork; making Batman Eternal #10 one of the best issues so far in the series. Artists Riccardo Burchielli and Dave McCaig illustrate wild fight panels; particularly when Batman storms Pyg's torture chamber. With clever storytelling and fists flying in all directions, there's a lot to like in this book. Read Full Review

    This story is still building, yet has already laid a ton of groundwork. I'm loving where this is headed… because I have no idea where it's going! If you haven't already,BUY IT. And if for some reason you haven't jumped on board withBatman:Eternal, get on it! You're missing out. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Jun 12, 2014

    Batman: Eternal takes a brilliant twist of events with Falcone being in a sticky situation. Added to the mysterious revelation and additional development the issue did a wonderful job of moving the series forward. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    This was a good issue. The action was good. The writing was great, especially with Falcone's explanation, you just felt like you understood what he wanted to do and the way he expressed his thoughts, he can convince the reader that what he is doing is justified. The artwork by Guillem March is always great, he always encompasses you into the action and how each individual character is feeling with his drawings. Overall, this issue is a good read and if you want some understanding of why Falcone is back in Gotham, and what it foreshadows in the BATMAN ETERNAL story, then this is a must have!

    Batman Eternal #10 is a fitting entry into the ongoing tale, and is a great example of why Batman Eternal is one of the best Bat-books on the shelves today, if not one of the best in recent years. Artist Riccardo Burchielli also does a more than competent job with art duties, managing to throw a few panels in there that elicit some real emotion. Given a few more years of experience, he could becomeend upgreat. Writer John Layman is doing some of his best Bat-work in his Batman Eternal issues, and this one is no exception despite some missteps in portraying Forbes. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Cory Robinson Jun 17, 2014

    Snyder and Co. are still doing what they do best, and that's telling damn good stories. Pick up this issue, but be warned that it's not as good as the previous ones, but a decent Snyder/Batman story is still one hell of a story. Read Full Review

    John Layman is turning in the best scripts during Batman Eternal thus far. There's a lot packed into this issue but the pacing is stellar. Read Full Review

    The book wasn't bad. It just wasn't as good as it should have been. I'm kinda thinking DC bit off a lot more than they should have here, that's what they're making me believe at least. The art has been all over the place, it's just not doing the story any justice. It's a lost opportunity. Hence the low score, it's because of the art. In the comic medium, visiualizations carry the story that was written. Panel to panel. And I'm so worried about this series, the art's getting worse. Hopefully #11 fixes things. Read Full Review

    Batman Eternal sets up a lot of things I'm excited to see play out, and one of those was what Catwoman and Falcone's past was... But this was the first time Eternal really disappointed me, and didn't really deliver anything of note. When Falcone was losing power, Selina stole a statue and scratched him... That's it. With that disappointment in mind, the rest of the issue was more or less set up for upcoming stories, so nothing really balanced out. I feel like this is the issue I've enjoyed the least so far, but the good thing is that the bar has already been set really high, so saying I enjoyed this the least doesn't actually mean it was that bad.

    With a weekly series, it's rare that you don't eventually have an issue where it just doesn't feel up to par. Honestly, if we get one every ten weeks, that's still a great average. In the end, this issue is more than a little stumble; it's dropping down to just the absolute middle of the road, but if everything gets stronger next week, I think all will be quickly forgiven.

    Batman: Eternal #10 was not a good issue.  The story was mostly filler and the art was horrible.  I hope next week gets us back on track. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Jun 14, 2014

    Batman Eternal is a bad comic. The story is all over the place with absolutely no pacing. The writers just fling whatever they want at the reader, regardless of tone, plot or character. It's all just a big pile of half-twists and madness. And the art has just gotten progressively worse issue after issue. Read Full Review
