    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Sep 17, 2014

    Batman: Eternal #24 is one of the best issues the series has produced so far, with Spoiler making a brilliant superhero New 52 debut. Even if events were escalated. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Sep 18, 2014

    This issue was everything that I have come to expect from Batman Eternal: abounding action, elaborate schemes, shadowy villains… and more! This was a great reintroduction of the Spoiler and I appreciated that she was not depicted as more skilled than she should be at this point in her career. So whether you have been waiting for the return of Stephanie Brown or enjoy solid/focused issues of Eternal, this one is for you! Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Sep 18, 2014

    Batman Eternal #24 succeeds in both of these ways. The story here is primarily focused on the relationship between Stephanie and her father, and ends in a fairly fun and fulfilling way. At the same time, she is a hero to be taken seriously, not just some kid patrolling the suburbs. The result is quite satisfying, and is especially so for fans of the character or those that appreciate a self-contained issue featuring superheroes. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 23, 2014

    Overall this was a pretty fun issue.  We finally get to see Spoiler in action and in the end, she was impressive.  Who knows what the next issue will be about, but I hope it's got more Spoiler. Recommended. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 17, 2014

    Its nice when this series takes a breather to focus on the general Bat-family, even those who dont yet realize their membership status. Theres a reason Stephanie Brown has been one of the most demanded characters in the NEW-52 relaunch and we are on a very so-far-so-good course. The books weekly release schedule will allow the creators to close any gaps in her characterization, and something tells me shell fit right in when the time comes. A slight misstep with Bats himself is no reason to stop following a book with this much continued, consistent momentum. Read Full Review

    Not much happened here, but it was nice to see Stephanie get the spotlight, and there wasn't much to pick apart, here. Read Full Review

    We're approaching the halfway point (already?!) ofBatman:Eternal, and I haven't a clue which direction we're headed. That's not a bad thing either. Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Sep 18, 2014

    batman Eternal continues to be a fun, well written series. I am enjoying most issues and this one was a very well done issue. They are building Stephanie Brown's character really well. We are getting insights into how far the villains plan spans and what is involved. We are seeing further progression with the mystery under Arkham. There is a lot going on but the past few issues have done a really good job of focusing on a select number of stories while tying in others to the central plot.  Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 20, 2014

    That Stephanie Brown issue we've all been waiting for is finally here! She's been teased for months, especially in the pages of Batman Eternal, and it's high time she got an issue all to herself. Mostly to herself, I guess, because there's a scene featuring Batman in this issue that makes absolutely no sense. Even when Batman Eternal has a clear focus, it can't help but glance around wildly at shiny things. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Sep 18, 2014

    There are definitely a few wonky expressions (par for the course when most artists have to draw children, sadly) but storytelling-wise, this is a solid, if unspectacular, issue. Read Full Review

    In a weekly series, the pacing of the grand story is necessarily going to be slow, otherwise you'd run out of things to write. That's to be expected. The pacing of the individual issues, for the most part, has been very fast, and this was no exception. Serving as the first actual appearance of The Spoiler in the New 52, this is a great introduction to her for people who never knew anything about her. The strangest thing about this book is that, in a series entitled "Batman: Eternal", seeing Batman in this issue was rather pointless, as it didn't seem to advance anything in the issue. Maybe it will make more sense in the trade, but for right now, it doesn't seem worthwhile. Andy Clarke's art is pretty good, but I think his faces need more time, especially on Stephanie. Batman looks too lean to fit the rest of the series, as well. Overall, another highly recommended issue in a highly recommended series.

    Individual issues of Batman Eternal remind me of individual manga chapters as the story hardly progresses at all even though they're the same size as the monthlies. In this issue, that is, practically, Spoiler #1, Batman gives a guest appearance with no point whatsoever. But the Spoiler part was fun enough to make up for that. And I'm getting tired of the 'spoiler alert' jokes now.

    BATMAN ETERNAL #24 focuses exclusively on the character of Spoiler. I'm aware Stephanie Brown is a fan favourite, but I've had limited exposure to her since I started buying Batman comics in 2007. The problem with this issue is it gives me no reason to understand why she's held in such high regard (reading her Wikipedia biography was more interesting than this issue) It's not a dreadful issue, the action flows nicely and I love the her-dad's-a-bad-guy angle, but ultimately it feels more like fan service as nothing really happens to move the plot of the series forward.
