The battle between Terry McGuinness and Damian Wayne continues, resurrecting the old feud between Batman and Ra’s al Ghul. But Terry is in greater danger than he realizes. His bat-suit’s A.I. is in danger of corrupting him completely, and that could doom him and Damian both.


My only criticism of this particular issue is a story element that – at this time – seems unnecessary. Perhaps it’s intended to pad the story out, or maybe it will have ramifications down the road. Time will tell.


One thing I’ve said before about Dan Jurgens’ stories is he is not one to repeat himself. He’s taken the Batman Beyond stories in multiple directions, rather than repeat the same scenario with different players. I appreciate that about his writing, which keeps the book from getting stale.


I appreciate Bernard Chang’s artwork, perhaps in part because it reminds me Howard Chaykin. Chaykin has a distinctive style, which Chang seems to have taken and refined. I see this mostly in terms of layout than in actual rendering, though it does appear there’s a bit of a swipe once in a while.


Rating 9/10
