    It's not bad stuff on that level, since Selina's actions and how she's manipulating people is pretty impressive and an interesting direction for her character. Also, the characterization and development going on here is pretty good as well for the rest of the cast. The artwork isn't my thing however and not a good fit for the book.Best Moment: Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Dec 24, 2014

    This week gave us insight as to how Batman continues to clean up Gotham, and how many ties Catwoman now has to the city as well as its villains. Also Batman makes a bad joke (according to Penny-Two). Read Full Review

    Comix I Read - Boris Roberto Aguilar Jan 3, 2015

    This issue felt like a side issue, a one-shot even. I wasn't entirely keen on Scarecrow in this issue. While I completely understand that he upset and deranged, he seemed more like a whiny baby. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Dec 24, 2014

    A couple thing to point out however…I dont really like that Batman was taking down villains in the famous off panel land, I felt that the villains were only there for decoration and it didnt really matter what happened to them. Lastly Im not sure how I feel about Jason Bard doing a sudden turn going from guy completely set on killing Batman to I made a mistake, please help me fix it. Seems a little too quick for my liking.

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Dec 27, 2014

    Generally speaking, this wasn't Eternal's best issue. Which is actually a real shame. There were some individual moments in the story that were really quite good, but as a whole the story was lacking a certain level of subtextual cohesiveness that would have made it truly shine. In the end however, the element that earned this issue the biggest amount of demerits was the art. While acceptable enough, it always surprises me when the big 2 have less than A grade art in their books. Read Full Review

    Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out. I suggest you go grab the new big Volume that contains #1-#21 if you are new, catch up and come for a rather different ride. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 30, 2014

    Batman: Eternal #38 was a mediocre bunch of filler that wasn't as fun as it should have been.  In the end, it was pretty forgetable though it finally looks like were going to get to some major developments in the near future.  Let's hope we get there very soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Dec 29, 2014

    "Batman Eternal" #38 has the previously mentioned great conclusion, and it's the saving grace of the comic. It makes the reader want to see the follow-through, and that's a good thing. (It probably doesn't hurt that with only ten new comics on sale the last week of the year, that "Batman Eternal" #39 will be one of the only options for those heading to the store.) "Batman Eternal" has done a lot better than this, but it's reassuring that even one of the series' weaker issues is just a little below average. That's not a bad statistic. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 27, 2014

    This whole experience was dull. And honestly, what does any of this have to do with Batman Eternal?! How does chasing down these villains tie into the bigger picture? This two-part storyline has just been a pathetic diversion. Read Full Review
