The Batman Adventures
#26 ‘Tree Of Knowledge’


Writer: Kelley Puckett
Artist: Mike Parobeck

It’s another Team-up of Batgirl & Robin in this issue, Barbara Gordon and Dick Grayson are in college, Criminology class, their teacher give them a assignment about a gun.
It’s a good story, I actually like it, the main character is Barbara Gordon, I would give this story 4 stars, Reason I’m not writing too much, is I don’t want to spoil the story for the first reader. :slightly_smiling_face:

Panel Of The Day


Does Barbara Gordon plan to be Commissioner Gordon someday?!

Over the years you see little mentions of Finger and Robinson to get around the whole “created by Bob Kane” thing. Sometimes it’s right in the credits box where they give “special thanks” to the two.

Writer: Kelley Puckett
Artist: Mike Parobeck & Rick Burchett

Tom Dalton a Olympic champion lost his wife by a gangsters, so he dress as ‘Batman’ and fight crime. When he’s shot, it’s up to Batman to help him to deal with his pain.
It’s a good and interesting story. Batman knew what Dalton is going through and decided to help this poor man. I would give this issue 4 stars. It’s a good fast pace story.

Panel Of The Day

The Batman Adventures: Holiday Special
#1 ‘Intro’ ‘Jolly Ol`St. Nichols’ ‘The Harley & The Ivy’ ‘White Christmas’ ‘What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?’ ‘Should Old Acquintance Be Forgotten.’


Writer: Paul Dini, Bruce Timm, Ronnie Del Carmen
Artist: Dan Riba, Bruce Timm, Ronnie Del Carmen, Glen Murakami, Kevin Altieri, Butch Lukic

30 years ago, this was the only The Batman Adventures comic I’ve never gotten, I’m forever thankful that DC Universe Infinite has the comic in their library, so at the time I had no idea The Holiday Knight episode from The New Batman Adventures was based on this special issue.
It’s really hard to pick which Version I like the best, I really enjoy both of them.
Anyway there’s tons of good story here by those who work on Batman The Animated Series, I give this comic 5 stars.

It’s Christmas time in Arkham, Harley Quinn is back, dressing as a famous doctor to do research on the Joker.
While the story doesn’t make any sense, it was still a great book to read, I enjoy reading it, I give it 4 stars. :smiley:

#29 ‘Demon Seed’


Writer: Kelley Puckett
Artist: Dev Madan

If you wanted to see the rest of the The Batman Adventures comics, starting with issue #29, you’ll need to subscribe to Ultra to read The Batman Adventures Vol. 4. :slightly_smiling_face:
Anyway Ra’s Al Ghul is missing, and it’s up to Batman & Talia to find him to see what he was working on.
I give this issue 3 1/2 stars, it’s a good comic, also this is a first issue without Mike Parobeck, still these guest artist are good artist.

I’ll just go over to my box here and pull out the issue.

Dev Madan did a few issues of Batman Adventures, but his biggest splash was the 18 issue Young Heroes in Love series in 1997.

#30 ‘Natural Born Loser.’


Writer: Kelley Puckett
Artist: Rick Burchett

How should I start this? You wanted to hear my origin story, well it all started way back when I was a kid, reading The Batman Adventures #30, I find it interesting that a guy name Marty looking for a missing piece of a map, only one of the criminal Trio has the map, when asking about the map, they begin to tell their origin story!
I would have to give this issue 3 stars. :slightly_smiling_face:

Being set up? That wasn’t nice! :grin:

#31 ‘Anarky’


Writer: Alan Grant
Artist: Dev Madan

A new villain is in town who acts as a judge, jury and executioner, it’s up to Robin to stop him, I actually don’t like this issue at all, from the coloring in the comic to the villain Anarky. It just make me sick anytime I read this issue, please don’t get me wrong, Alan Grant is a great writer and Dev Madan is a great artist, this issue is by far my least favorite comic for The Batman Adventures, I give it a half star.

Keeping the kids away from TV & this issue!

#32 ‘A Soldiers Story’


Writer: Dan Raspler
Artist: Mike Parobeck & Rick Burchett

After being gone for 4 month, Mike Parobeck is back along with Rick Burchett for this issue, it was great to see his return in this issue, Dan Raspler is a guest writer for this issue, in this issue we see Batman more as a Detective by putting it to good use while we see a bit of crime fighter.
Without spoiling it, I actually enjoy this, I give it four stars, cause we mostly see Batman as a Detective. :slightly_smiling_face:

The Batman Adventures
#33 ‘Just Another Night’


Writer: Ty Templeton
Artist: Dev Madan

I really enjoy reading this issue, the hold up robbery comes back to haunt Bruce Wayne in a familiar scene.
It seem like that Bruce found a love of his life, all it takes is a badguy to ruin the night.
I can still remember picking up this comic at the comic store, I remember hearing a rumor about a new Star Wars movie, maybe that’s why I remember it. At the time I thought the actors were too old for their characters and we all move on. This was in 1995, what a different time it was.
I give this issue a 4 stars, cause it’s that good from story writing from the great Ty Templeton and amazing arts by Dev Madan.
If you haven’t read it and have Ultra subscription, be sure to check it out in The Batman Adventures Vol. 4. :slightly_smiling_face:
Hopefully DC team will add this and other missing issues soon or someday.

#34 ‘In Memoriam’


Writer: Kelley Puckett
Artist: Mike Parobeck

This is a 3 part story, so I’ll be doing the rating in part 3, in the meantime, we begin with Hugo Strange making his comic appearance in The Batman Adventures, he kept getting so many headaches that he’s trying to lose his memories of his late son David.
I find it interesting that he has a wife name Martha and a son named David. I should ask @HubCityQuestion if they really exist outside in DC Universe or they’re made only for this series?
Either way it fit really well to the story, also we see the return of Catwoman who’s trying to get Batman’s attention.
By the end…we see Batman loses his memories and Catwoman rescue him and the diamond that Batman’s memory is in.
Looking forward to see what will happen next.

TO BE CONTINUED…

Batman is keeping his eyes on things.

Martha and David Strange are indeed exclusive to this issue. Hugo Strange appears to have another son, Eli Strange, in 2012 issues of Detective Comics. His mother Julia died in childbirth, and he follows in his father’s villainous footsteps.

#35 ‘The Book Of Memory’


Writer: Kelley Puckett, Ty Templeton
Artist: Mike Parobeck, Rick Burchett

First I would like to thank @HubCityQuestion for responding to my question, that was really helpful. :grinning:
In this 2nd part, Batman has amnesia and acts like a 6 years old working with Catwoman.
Hugo Strange is going crazy as ever, attacking almost anyone he see to ‘Protecting David.’
The only problem I had with this issuse in the last 28 years, how did Catwoman get Batman into a Catman costume without seeing he’s Bruce Wayne?! Or does she knows?


Robin finally found Batman and bring him home, beside one little problem I had, I did like the story, I like how guilty Batman felt for stealing, looking forward to reading part 3 tomorrow!

TO BE CONCLUDED…

Robin now in the driver seat.

#36 ‘The Last Batman Adventure’


Writer: Ty Templeton
Artist: Mike Parobeck, Rick Burchett

Well the story and the series comes to the end with this issuse of Batman trying to get his memories back, and finding away to stop Hugo Strange.
This really had a great way to close out this adventure, I find myself enjoying seeing Batman act like a kid, but it’s great to have him back.
Robin is all serious in this issue. Anyway I would give this 3 part adventure a 4 1/2 stars, I think it was a great way to end it.
But don’t worry, there’s more on a way with The Batman Adventures Annual #2 tomorrow and soon I’ll begin reading Batman & Robin Adventures in 2 days from now! :smiley:
