    AIPT - Christopher Franey Aug 2, 2022

    The big reveal is here and very satisfying as it ties so much of the mystery and adventure together. I'm surprised the creative team chose that character, but it will make for fantastic conflict later in the series. It looks like Thomas and Bruce Wayne are in for some heavy fallout.

    This creative team certainly outdid itself this week and will leave fans excited for the next FLASHPOINT BEYOND issue as well as the future stories to come. If you get the chance prior to this issue, reread FLASHPOINT as well as the closely related event comics. Youll be happy you did. Pick this up, let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    As we enter the final act of this series, the creative team has dialed back some of the less-interesting subplots to focus on what we're all here forthis supremely disturbing version of Gotham. Read Full Review

    It's a great issue, the only real "negative" being that readers might really need to go back and do a touch of homework to get the full force of things, but man it is worth it. Read Full Review

    An excellent issue in this fantastic summer mini-series. Don't sleep on this one, folks. It's becoming more and more apparent that this series is very important to the DCU. Read Full Review

    Itd be one thing if writers Geoff Johns, Jeremy Adams and Tim Sheridan have been stumbling through this saga, but it feels like theres a focus with an imminent payoff just in time for the finale. This wasnt the strongest issue of the mini-series, although theres plenty of reason to be optimistic it will ultimately deliver a satisfying conclusion. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Olly MacNamee Aug 5, 2022

    Given ‘Flashpoint Beyond' as a series leans into its murder mystery/police procedural tropes then fans of such stories will enjoy this fourth issue. But, as a superhero series, this is the one with the least amount of action. The art work saves the day, but its a quick read with just two events filling out the issue and juxtaposed by the writers Geoff Johns, Tim Sherridan and Jeremy Adams in an attempt to create tension, which kinda works.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 2, 2022

    Flashpoint Beyond #4 starts assembling the pieces to the Clockwork Killer's identity, and when the killer is revealed, you may love it or hate it. The art is excellent, and the storytelling is top-notch. However, this series seems more interested in the novelty of Flashpoint and Easter Eggs and hasn't entirely locked down a reason to exist. A closer tie to Dark Crisis may be at play, but the nuggets we get here barely rise above mild curiosity. Read Full Review

    If you like the larger Flashpoint timeline, then this is a great book. If you don't, you may be bored. Read Full Review

    It could be that I just wasn't in the mood to read this issue. It's possible! I'm not an objective be-all and end-all on the matter of a comic book. I still think this book is above average, more or less. I just feel like it's making a few decisions that are losing me, just as I'm getting really invested. We'll see if the next issue fixes this.
