    Batman: the Adventures Continue Season Three #1 was a stellar first issue and could possibly be considered to be the best of this series thus far. Amazing artwork, and a story which foreshadows things yet to come in a way that grabs readers and keeps them hooked for more. Fans will no doubt hear the late, great Kevin Conroys voice in their minds as they read, keeping his legacy alive. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jackson Luken Jan 10, 2023

    This first issue of Batman: The Adventures Continue Season 3 is a marked improvement on the first two seasons. It tells a focused, self-contained story that's both engaging and dramatic. Muscle is elevated from a generic thug to a three dimensional character who struggles with how to handle being betrayed by his employers. The art is moody and is able to make every page feel alive with emotion and movement. Seeing a one-shot like this that uses the drama of minor characters to flesh out the world of Gotham is a real return to form of what made Dini's original comics so great. Read Full Review

The source of these hits come from the hitman's former employer Esther Valestra. And she's not the only one who wants him dead. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of the original series and you miss Kevin Conroy, you will enjoy this issue. If you are looking for a more lighthearted but not silly version of Batman, this is also a fun issue to pick up. I would even say if you're looking to introduce someone to comics and they have seen the show, this might be a great place to start. Read Full Review
