    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill Jun 1, 2021

    All in all, this is a great Batman book. It has the BTAS feel and BTAS is easily the best animated series of all time and, for many folks my age, is the definitive Batman (okay, along with Michael Keaton). I read this Batman and I hear Kevin Conroy and all the other actors in the series. I'm glad that DC is doing these books and I'm ready for more! Read Full Review

    AIPT - Reg Cruickshank Jun 1, 2021

    A book that feels both fresh and nostalgic, not just for the cartoon it's succeeding, but also for the modern Batman tales it's bringing into its legacy. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 1, 2021

    This first issue sets up a lot of intriguing plotlines, and it's always fun to see Batman thrown off-balance as he reckons with the forces of the supernatural. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - James Attias Jun 1, 2021

    Batman: The Adventures Continue #2.1 is a treat to read. There are laughs, tears, and good old-fashioned comic book twists. I for one can't wait for issue #2, where hopefully we'll see Batman and more of our favorite characters kick some serious Owl tail feathers! Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - soycornholio Jun 2, 2021

    Any Batman fan would enjoy this. It is a continuation of one of the best cartoons of all time (with the added extra of the Court of Owls). With Batman being such an amazing IP, I would love to see The Adventures Continue as a new season of Batman the Animated Series. Taking the old and adding in something new works for this creative team. Excellent job DC excellent job. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Jun 2, 2021

    Overall, this season premiere simultaneously serves as an excellent return to the animated series and a good Batman comic for the uninitiated. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 12, 2021

    The addition of Deadman adds an interesting angle as he isn't able to possess the zombie Talons (who can see him), helping Batman accept their odd nature quickly (although a trip to Zatanna proves to be equally useful). Now, with Deadman's help, can Batman prevent the Court of Owls assassins from taking out any more prominent Gothamites? Read Full Review

    Batman: The Adventures Continue Season 2 starts a new chapter to the classic franchise by introducing an intriguing take on the Court of the Owls. Because it looks like it's going back towards Dick Grayson and Deadman.

    They started this story interestingly, with the killing of a regular from the series. The animated continuity Mayor Hill certainly was different than the original one in the early '80s (though when you look at his anti-Batman attitude at the series' start he was probably originally planned to have been). They did a good job expanding his world through the wife and son who never appeared before, though they also seem to have forgotten several years had passed between the Fox and WB eras as Jordan was hardly aged. By this point he should be in his teens.
    The Court of Owls are villains from long after the show ended so it's interesting to see them in animated continuity. This must happen before Justice League though since Batman and Deadm more
