    This series would be welcome at any point, but it's especially timely to get some fun animated series Batman installments during this period. Read Full Review

    Batman: The Adventures Continue #1.2 is a blast to read. There are twists, turns and surprises, startling reveals, and a cliffhanger that left me begging for more. If the final reveal wasn't thrilling enough, the "Next Issue" caption left me salivating. Terrific. I really can't wait to hold a physical copy, collecting chapters #1.1 and #1.2 in my hands.

    I'm not sure this quite feels like the animated series just yet, but it's definitely a strong all-ages take on the world of Gotham that's growing with every issue. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Jul 13, 2020

    This is a really good story that manages to progress the Jason storyline while still building up its villains. Deathstroke is written brilliantly as he tries to sow discord amongst the Bat-family and Robin's interactions with him are very well-done. Despite having to share the spotlight with another villain I can say that Clayface managed to stand out here too, partially due to his portrayal as a sadistic monster in this issue. The art looks just as great as it did last issue without the distraction of the ever-changing sky colour. Finally, the lettering is brilliantly done. It adds a lot to the Clayface segment of the issue and as I said in the main review, there's not many sound effects but when they appear they're used well and have a lot of impact. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Wes Greer Apr 14, 2020

    This issue is an all-around fun and much needed break from the troubles some of us are going through right now. I know personally being a child of the 90s and now getting to relive a world I loved as a kid has really been an amazing thing as of late as I can still feel the excitement I felt when I was 7 waiting on Sunday nights to catch the latest episode. The story is just as impactful, and the art helps re-deliver that feeling as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes Apr 18, 2020

    A good, but not great, issue. Hopefully, this series will stick to the Batman Universe and less and less on the extended DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 15, 2020

    It's not all bad, there's something enjoyable about the comic but it's a bit breezy as far as a read and just misses the magic of what made the original animated series work. This feels like a comic aimed at kids. The cartoon was aimed at kids with maturity and complexity that could be appreciated by adults. Without the nailing of the nostalgia and some questionable dialogue and flow, the excitement for this new series has quickly deflated. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 15, 2020

    Batman: The Adventures Continue #2 does a great job carrying the momentum from the first chapter and delivering a strong conclusion to the clash with Lex Luthor. The approach to the fight that Batman and Lex employ showcases what makes both these characters so great. The way Burnett and Dini use the DC Animated Universe continuity makes this a comic that fans will highly enjoy. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 16, 2020

    As it stands, this opening story doesn't due credit to any of these creators' prodigious track records, nor does it really live up to the critically acclaimed cartoon from which it is based. Read Full Review
