    Templeton does a fantastic job of rendering the characters in the animation style I'm used to while also elevating it and the world of the characters enough to create some new visuals to enjoy. Read Full Review

    This series has done a good job of pulling in elements from across the DCU, giving this series a broader and sometimes more adult feel than the original animated series could pull off. Read Full Review

    It's a mixed-bag of results at the end of Batman: The Adventures Continue's latest arc. Whilst the storytelling is coming together it still lacks some of the punch of Batman: The Animated Series.

    After a shaky first couple of issues, Batman: The Adventures Continue Season 3 #5 manages to deliver a solid finale to the Straightman story.

The pacing can at times still feel hectic as it jumps from one scene to the next, but it still remains engaging all the way to the end. Read Full Review

    Along with cameos from several Suicide Squad members, mind-controlled to go after Batman in the climax, we get Harley working with the Dynamic Duo as well. I've said this before, but this storyline hasn't been my favorite of the relaunched continuing adventures of the Batman: The Animated Series universe, but the issue does tie up the loose ends, with some fun Suicide Squad cameos, and should allow for something more interesting next month.
