    Many people will label this a "kid's book". It is not. You'll enjoy it, it's got a smart on-going story that doesn't talk down to the reader. A really good book that is worth your money. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 7, 2020

    While one could make the argument that DC's other digital offerings - particularly Superman: Man of Tomorrow and Flash: Fastest Man Alive - make better use of self-contained serialization, Batman: The Adventures Continue #3 feels like a solid effort. That said, the concerns from the previous adventure are still valid - this plot doesn't move forward particularly far here, and if Burnett, Dini and Templeton are expected to wrap everything up in the next chapter, readers are going to be in for a massive disappointment. Here's hoping that the team's eyes weren't bigger than their stomachs, and that DC will give them enough runway to learn from their previous mistakes. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez May 8, 2020

    Batman: The Adventures Continue #3 provided the DC Animated Universe version of Deathstroke with a solid debut. The way Alan Burnett and Paul Dini have positioned Deathstroke against the Batman Family sets up a compelling story for future issues to develop. The only place this issue falls flat is when it comes to the mystery character who is following Batman. It's unfortunate that this sub-plot lacks a compelling narrative because otherwise Batman: The Adventures Continue #3 was a fun issue that gave us a good debut for Deathstroke. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte May 8, 2020

    While this manages to capture the feel of the animated series, it doesn't capture the feel of one of the better episodes. This comic just lacks content. The fight with Clayface was fun, but after that, this issue just meanders as all the various characters comment on Deathstroke, or are Deathstroke not being very subtle. Read Full Review
