    Burchett has a great visual eye for the story and characters. The art has some beautiful moments throughout and I continue to marvel at the world of this story. Read Full Review

    This storyline maintains the feeling of the original animated series, but it's a little more suspenseful and densely plotted. The original series never had the time or audience to go into Gotham politics too much, and the extended stories in this run are giving the creative team a lot more freedom. I'm just hoping that like the first season, this is just a prelude to even more stories in this universe. Read Full Review

    Batman: The Adventures Continue Season Two #6 is a good second half to the Mayor Mayhem storyline. We are taken further into the inner workings of the politically corrupt section of Gotham City while having a stellar cast of characters in this issue (Alfred, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Tim Drake to name a few). This comic takes place within the BTAS universe, therefore, if youre a fan of the show, check it out. If you are a Batman fan who is craving for more of a detective style of Batman (and less action like the mainstream books) this is for you. Happy reading! Read Full Review

    Batman recognizes the disguised Clayface as his attacker, but he's safely locked up behind bars at Arkham Asylum. And later Clayface escapes to attack Batman again! And Barbara discovers he isn't the only escapee working for the campaign (which also explains the ex-mayor's sudden rise in popularity). But is there enough time to reveal the truth before Mayfield and the Bat-villains can steal the election? Read Full Review

    This is without a doubt the best Batman story currently out there. It's got something to it that most modern Batman comics severely lack.
    Mayfield reminds me of the Hamilton Hill in regular continuity back in the early '80s. The corrupt unscrupulous mayor who is nothing but trouble. I wonder whatever happened to him after he was forced to resign? One of Mayfield's biggest mysteries is his mysterious charm. He even put it on Batman. There's something to that I'm looking forward to discovering what it's about in the upcoming conclusion.
    If you're looking for a Batman story worth reading now this is it. And it's still $3.99 too.
