    IGN - Tres Dean Feb 5, 2015

    While it's not a high point for the series, this week's Batman Eternal is still a very solid installment in DC's best weekly comic in ages. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Feb 11, 2015

    Sometimes stories, like people, have to pause for breath. In the hectic rush of plotlines, in the frantic desire to squeeze in every last bit of characterization, even a well-crafted narrative can twist and meander, requiring a few pages of stillness to allow all the jumbled elements to settle into a stable pattern. Batman Eternalhas not reached such a place. Far from it, D.C.'s premier weekly now needs to accelerate toward a powerful and satisfying conclusion, not least because the ENDGAME arc currently underway inBatmanhas pretty much spoiled any hope for surprise or shock.

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Feb 5, 2015

    This issue felt like total filler to me, which was a huge disappointment, being so close to the finish line. This chapter of Eternal has forgettable written all over it. It's only saving graces were the “classic Batman” moments that got mixed into the plethora of action. But that is everything this issue has to offer. It has no substance beyond the flair.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 7, 2015

    Ray Fawkes is back, but unfortunately he brought a whole lot of setup.  Actually, he brought some other things I really didn't like as well.  Maybe this issue and it's interesting cliffhanger will lead to good things in the near future, but this issue was a bit of a disappointment.

    The Batman Universe - Ryan Blair Feb 4, 2015

    Overall this was another issue where we saw another villain be revealed as having been pulled into the giant scheme of Batman Eternal and this could easily have been explained in a few lines of dialogue. Not sure it was worth an entire issue, but I am looking forward to next issue as it teases that The Truth will be revealed. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 7, 2015

    And just like that, Batman Eternal sucks again. Sigh. The fun team-up between Bluebird and Spoiler was short-lived, and now we're back to this comic making little sense about dumb topics. Say goodbye to strong personalities and interesting characters, say hello to another random plot line from out of left field " actually, make that at least two random plot lines from out of left field.

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Feb 5, 2015

    This one is a bad effort all-around that really shows the worst of the weekly comics format. It's repetitive, unnecessary and boring. Read Full Review
