    BATMAN ETERNAL #19 was a great issue. It was well paced, very well written, and it had enough action scenes to keep a reader engaged. The artwork faltered, but, the writing makes up for this. We see a lot of character development and plot points begin to move. Plot points such as Red Robin training harper Row, Jim Gordon being innocent yet pretty much stuck in Blackgate, etc. will have you getting too excited for what's to come. Highly recommend.

    Tim Seeley is doing a bang up job on his run of Eternal. This issue is only slightly less enjoyable than the last outing and we learn quite a few pieces of information that move the plot along. However, the real surprise of this issue is scene stealer Red Hood. If you're a fan of the character you definitely don't want to pass this one up. Read Full Review

    Batman: Eternal continues to give us an exciting and fun tale, with the Red Hood/Batgirl fight being more than impressive. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    "Batman Eternal" #19 is the point of the series where readers who have stayed with it are not only rewarded with an enjoyable standalone reading experience, but also get that additional reward of seeing what the writers have laid out start to come together. Read Full Review

    Eternal is at its best when the pacing is good. Unfortunately, not every writer is up to the task of balancing each story line every time out. Tim Seeley nail it in this one, though. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Ryan Lower Aug 16, 2014

    This issue gets a lot right, but it hards to sum up week after week the little pieces that are slowly coming together. Some of it is working (Batgirl vs. Red Hood), some of it isn't (Red Robin and Harper Row) but overall,Eternal is establishing itself as a reliable weekly title. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 19, 2014

    This issue of Batman: Eternal pushes the story forward on a bunch of fronts, but I didn't enjoy it as much as last week.  It's not as fun and the art rubbed me the wrong way. Read Full Review

    For yet another week, Batman Eternal continues to shine with Batman Eternal #19. The book has been bringing cohesion to the Bat-verse every week, and seems to be working as a glue holding all those books to one universe. Here is a group of writers who care about the Dark Knight and his city, and it shows through once again despite a couple missteps and missed chances. Read Full Review

    While this issue was mostly set up veiled by well-done action, Seeley still managed to let some heart shine through by letting characters have their moments in each separate storyline. Similarly, although Simeoni’s art throughout the issue is haphazard, there are several moments where he more than succeeds, which is enough to keep the reader satisfied. Batman: Eternal hasn’t wowed yet, but it appears to be on its way. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 16, 2014

    Batman Eternal doesn't seem to have anything to say about Batman, Gotham City or anything else, for that matter. It's just cruising along with a bunch of random different storylines, failing to come off as a cohesive whole. Why does this comic exist? And why does it exist as a weekly? Read Full Review
