The Joker’s right-hand man, Straightman, isn’t quite feeling himself lately. He keeps experiencing moments…flashbacks…of a life he doesn’t remember. After a recent run-in with the Clown Prince and his stoic enforcer, Batman starts to unravel the man’s past, but it lands him smack dab in the crosshairs of Amanda Waller and Task Force X!

    Batman: The Adventures Continue Season Three #3 is a good expansion upon DCAU lore, exploring new characters and further connecting Batman the animated series to the rest of the DC animated universe.

    Batman: The Adventures Continue Season 3 #3 is an interesting first chapter that manages to introduce a lot story elements, but it's unclear how well it will follow through. It leans into the story's mysteries which provide an interesting angle to explore the new characters, and allows their pasts to shape the conflict. The success of the rest of the story hinges on how compelling of a character Straightman will turn out to be. Read Full Review
