    Sequential Planet - Alexander Cole Nov 5, 2020

    Kicking off with an exciting confrontation between the Joker and Jason Todd, this issue goes on to provide a solid new version of the Red Hood's origin. The writing is great and respectful to the original Jason Todd character. The art is lovely. It always looks like the TV show but the little subtle things like the brighter colouring during key moments really brings this comic to life. Lettering is decent throughout and the characters are well-developed. An extremely enjoyable introduction to Jason Todd as a character. Read Full Review

    Nostalgia is a strong emotion, and every issue of this book just transports me back to those 90's days watching the animated show on TV. It makes me smile, and we all need some of that right now. Read Full Review

    While Deathstroke offers a plausible reason for his appearance in Gotham to the Dark Knight, the assassin's true purpose is revealed at the end of the issue where readers discover what he's doing in Batman's backyard and who he's working for. Now that Todd knows Deathstroke is being bankrolled by Lex Luthor to knock off Batman, what happens to his long-term plans for his former mentor? And, if indeed he decides to make himself more visiable, will we be seeing Hush? The Red Hood? Or something else entirely? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Jun 6, 2020

    Batman: The Adventures Continue #5 progresses the "Mentor" story but unfortunately faces several problems that hold back the quality. The biggest problems facing this storyline are with how poorly Deathstroke and the Batman Family stalker have been developed. Thus far the name value of these characters are what this story are playing off of rather than true character development. Hopefully that changes in future issues of this series. Read Full Review
