    Batman #47 is that point in an action movie where all the streams of the plot begin to come together and,by rapid intercutting of scenes, we watch the various protagonists move through differing obstacles toward the ultimate threat awaiting them, all accompanied by a score with a heavy percussion line and lots of horn-effects. To continue the musical metaphor, welisten in this issue asauthor Tim Seeley riffs on several variations of hero clashing with villain: Batwing vs Scarecrow, Jason vs Bane, Tim vs Clayface, Barbara vs Joker's Daughter,and Alfred vs Hush.

    Overall, a few twists and turns, appearances from many characters and anticipation for what's coming up next week. With only 5 issues left, strap in for a wild ride to the end because despite the title, this story won't last forever. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Feb 26, 2015

    Something else this week did was showcase each and every one of the Bat-family and show them in some sort of action, this along with the fantastic artwork by Ferrerya makes this issue one of the best so far in the series – and one you certainly don't want to miss! Read Full Review

    Just as it seemed that Batman Eternal was buckling under its own weight, the creative team turns in a strong installment mostly because of the gorgeous art of Juan Ferreyra. Read Full Review

    Issue 47 is far from the series's worst. It just isn't anywhere close to its best. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Feb 25, 2015

    Still no advancement with the true culprit and honestly, with so few issues left, I'm starting to get worried. I'm worried that all the remaining plotlines won't be wrapped up that well since there are so few issues left to go. We're barely making progress and it's frustrating" Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brandon Mulholand Feb 27, 2015

    The third act of Eternal has been paltry compared with the opening and mid salvo, and this issue does nothing to change that. I can't help but feel like DC is just milking us at this point. By now, they know they have us hooked. We aren't going to abandon ship this close to the finish line, so they can do whatever they want and we will keep buying it. At least the art was nice to look at in this issue. Read Full Review

    "Batman Eternal" #47 is the beginning of the end and, at this point, if you've stuck around this long, you'll know that it's been a good ride. I'd have rather seen the conclusion already kicking into high gear at the start of this issue instead of the end, but there's still enough here that you won't feel like you've wasted your money.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 28, 2015

    Is Batman: Eternal messing with me?  There are only a few issues left and it feels like we are going nowhere...slow.  Hush has returned big time, but the cliffhanger feels tired.  I loved Juan Ferreyra's art, but in the end, this issue did nothing to get me excited going forward.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 28, 2015

    And the art is just fantastic this issue. Ferreyra has this stiff, almost painted style that has a lot of detail and emotion in it. He's does good landscapes as well. There's one really great double-page spread of Julia, in costume, jumping over the rooftops of Gotham, with the panels placed into the sides of the buildings. Just a fantastic look for this comic. So at least the art is nice. Read Full Review
