    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 9, 2019

    With Batman Universe #4, two-thirds of the way into Batman Universe, I can safely say this team-up adventure is easily the best comic Bendis has written in years, and maybe one of the best of his career. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Oct 9, 2019

    My only gripe with the issue is in the last few pages there is tonally shift that makes it very different from the rest of the series. As much as I loved the final page, it is much darker and alludes to much more depressing themes than anything else previously explored in the series. That being said, it is still an excellent issue and the book that marks the end of the arc. However, the story will pick back up with a new series next month. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Oct 9, 2019

    This is an entertaining romp that makes Batman and Green Lantern cowboys and also has a fight with a bunch of ninjas. While it may not be a story that's meant for everyone, it's definitely a book that is meant for someone, even if that someone is me. The dialogue is sharp and snappy, and the visual storytelling is absolutely amazing, from the pencils to the coloring to the lettering. Batman: Universe is one of the most entertaining books on the stands, and one that I look forward to reading each month for the sheer thrills it provides. As an entertainment, issue 4 here does not disappoint. Read Full Review
