    Another great installment from Higgins and Fabok. Thumbs up coming from this guy. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Nov 20, 2014

    This is a super fast read that makes me happy that Batman Eternal is a weekly book. While beautifully illustrated and well scripted, I'd be more hard on it if I had to wait a month to get to the next issue as opposed to just a week, since the story doesn't progress that much. While the content is somewhat sparse and spread out, it is nonetheless, engaging. Filled with action and several wonderful character moments. If for nothing else, buy it for the art. Jason Fabok kills it! Read Full Review

    Another solid entry in this epic tale. Kyle Higgins handled the scripting duties while my man Mr. Jason Fabok nails the art (there's a wonderful shot of Batman on page 2 that will make anyone drool). I'm digging this direction of the story and would be satisfied if we stuck with just this story line from here on out, for I believe this will be one hell of an ending. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Nov 20, 2014

    On the artwork side of this issue is Jason Fabok as the artist and Brad Anderson on colors. Fabok's portrayal of Batman is classic, he's big, he's bruising, he has some stubble and could possibly use a shower. Anderson comes in and compliments Fabok's artwork in a great way (both are quite detailed). Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Nov 21, 2014

    Batman: Eternal #33 certainly raises the stakes, as though the issue mainly felt like a set-up issue, the character development was enticingly immersive. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Batman Eternal continues to please and excite. This issue is an easy jump on point for new readers, the tight story and smaller cast allow a new reader to get involved and excited about the direction without feeling lost. This is certainly a difficult thing to do in a weekly series in its 33rd installment. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Nov 20, 2014

    Handling art duties once again is Jason Fabok, his detailed lines and excellent choreography again on fine display. Obviously the book's weekly pace makes it impossible to lock down one specific artist, but Fabok needs to be in the rotation as often as possible. His work lends an added gravity to the proceedings, each punch and scowl loaded with a real and visceral weight. If you passed on this weekly in the beginning, now is a heck of a time to start.

    At least this issue has Fabok. His art is amazing and really saves what is otherwise a very boring affair. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 25, 2014

    This issue sets up so much up, but not all of it is good.  Hush is busy doing something that rarely happens...besting Batman.  He also has Bruce Wayne on the ropes and is about to hit him where it hurts.  Julia comes out of the Cave and shows she can hold her own, but sometimes holding your own isn't enough.  One of those times may be the last page of this issue.  Higgins and Fabok move the book forward enough to have me interested in next week's issue.

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Nov 19, 2014

    Sadly, there wasn't much going on in this issue. It basically deals with one plot point and that's really it, making it one of the slower and uneventful issues of the series to date. Don't get me wrong, there's still plenty of good things to like: there's a good deal of character development and characterization, leading to a lot of interesting moments for the cast. Plus, the dialogue and pacing are solid and Fabok's artwork is amazing like you would expect (the issue had a great fight scene this time around). However, there's just not much to write home about this time around. Hopefully things pick up next time. Read Full Review

    I love when the Eternal braintrust opts to let the same writer/artist duo do back-to-back issues. It helps some of the pacing problems that a weekly series can run into. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Nov 24, 2014

    "Batman Eternal" #33 is a pleasant read, and honestly pleasant is a good bar to reach for a weekly series. Even with there being a bit of a stall this week, it's overall a good comic and the one weekly series from DC that continues to hold my attention with each new installment. At this point, I think it's earned most of its readership planning on returning for the series' second year. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 22, 2014

    I think the writers are just stalling for time at this point. While this issue has the focus that I love so much, it also doesn't accomplish a whole heck of a lot. This might be the lightest issue of Batman Eternal yet. Read Full Review
