    This issue is definitely no disappointment and this series is worth sticking through. Read Full Review

    The dialogue is believable. The relationships are interesting. The plot is plausible. But why now? Why this way? The story proceeds not out of necessity or even inexorable internal forces, but according to an outline hanging on the wall of the Batman Office. It isn't a bad outline; it has served well. But an outline isn't a storyline, and an efficient presentation of plot points isn't a narrative. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 17, 2014

    This felt like a very eventful issue. Lots of things were going on"a lot of follow up on several previous storylines"and a lot of good character moments throughout. Everything felt rather engaging and enjoyable to read in my personal opinion, helped by a lot of good writing and some rather enjoyable dialogue. Now, I would have preferred to see more of Selina's rise to power, like getting into contact with the crime families and how they first reacted, but what can you do? The only real thing I had a big problem with was the artwork from Andrea Mutti. It's rather bland, with none of it really fitting the tone and the characters. The drab colors and occasional miscolor didn't help either, like Selina's skin tone that made her look more like Julia. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Dec 18, 2014

    This week showed some of Batmans progression, but was more suited to seeing what his enemies are up to. Oh, and Batwing is in trouble. Who you gonna call? Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Normal Dec 19, 2014

    The next act of Batman Eternal starts this week, but with not too much of a bang. Tim Seeley's script is mostly workman like in nature and since this is the first issue of the next act, there are none of the spectacles that we have come to expect out of this book. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 18, 2014

    This issue was by no means bad, it just didn't have any kind of substance to it. It is fine to have these connector issues, but if there is no plot payoff to hold the attention of the audience, then the creative team needs to find some other way to make what is going on more engaging and entertaining. In the past, I have given some of these connector issues higher scores, but this particular one just felt like a cookie cutter tale. Here just to get us to the next big thing. However, if you're looking to read something awesome, check out Batman #37. It came out today as well, and far more worth your time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 23, 2014

    I didn't like this issue.  Tim Seeley transitioned the book into the next big thing, but the weak characterizations and odd interactions had me more confused than excited.  Couple that with below average art and you get an issue that I can't recommend. Read Full Review

    Batman Eternal is a mediocre 6-issue Batman story stretched out for a whole year because the gimmick was more important than the actual story. Read Full Review
