Alan Burnett and Paul Dini continue to impress in the Batman The Animated Series Universe and Season Two of the Adventures Continue is another great entry. 


I don't read and I don’t pull many Batman titles. Wes Greer, another writer here at Comics the Gathering, usually takes care of the Batman titles. I honestly think that Batman is a little over done in the comics line. DC has a lot of characters with really rich backstories that I would really like to see more in the comics. But, Batman The Adventures Continue is one of the two Batman books that I will pull. For those wondering, I pull the White Knight Universe stories too, but I digress.


Burnett and Dini bring more characters to the BTAS Universe that never made it to the animated series. The first season was about Deathstroke and this season brings in the Court of Owls. One of the highlights of the New 52 reboot of DC Comics was Scotty Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman. I love those Batman stories and the Court of Owls was certainly a highlight of that run. Now, Talon and the rest of the Owls come to the BTAS universe. I am totally here for it and this first issue was on fire! I can’t wait to read more. The story is perfect BTAS coming to the comics. Oh, and we also get Deadman who is another fantastic and personal favorite character from DC Comics. I really like seeing Boston Brand pop up in new comics stories. 


The art of Ty Templeton is on point for BTAS. I love what Templeton is doing. The art is Templeton’s own but is in the style of BTAS and it is just wonderful. I feel like I’m watching Batman in a totally new adventure! Templeton is the best artist for this series. I am looking forward to the next issues coming out over the next several months. 


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!
