    The art style is great and the plot is fast-paced. I think this issue benefited from not having to split its focus nearly as much as the last two did, with two strong central plots. Read Full Review

    While this issue is an "in-between one in the overall story, it does an excellent job of inserting doubt when it comes to the outcome of both storylines. Read Full Review

    Batman: The Audio Adventures#4 is a fun if breezy comic. The storytelling and art are well-matched and have real forward momentum. It's still not perfect, as there are still too many characters and storylines that don't seem to connect. Fortunately, it's still strong enough to be an enjoyable romp. Read Full Review

    I have decided that the tone is going to make or break this experience for you. Personally, I'm not sure who this story is for yet, but I am at least digging the simplicity like a kid's cartoon. Ironically, Audio Adventures reminds me of a brighter version of Batman the Animated Series, but way less willing to go deep. I can't complain about the series being populated by lovable caricatures, but it feels intellectually dishonest about what it wants to do with them. It may be working better or worse for other readers, so please let me know what you think about the series so far. Read Full Review

    Robin has to be nuts to eat anything the Penguin offers. Batman would've glared at him and knock it on the floor-and I mean on the '60s show. Seriously, this issue offered a great double plot to it. It seems though both things are coming together in a way as well. And the search for the sword is also taking a thrilling turn. The only complaint I have is how all this is usually being overshadowed by focus on Croc. I guess it's because I'm tired of sewer stories. Batman spends so much time down there these days in comics that he should wear a colored bandanna and call people "Dude."
    I'd really have to say though that this is the best Batman book out right now. I really would loke a regular series of it so I can at least keep getting one more
