Format: Paperback
At the height of its popularity, the masterful Batman: The Animated Series produced numerous pieces of spin-off material, such as a new wave of comics that were set in the continuity of the DC Animated Universe. These comics possessed the heart and soul - the very essence - of what made the hit cartoon so special.

Case in point, who could ever forget Paul Dini and Bruce Timm's AWARD-WINNING comic story "Mad Love"? An unforgettable classic which explored the fascinating origins of Harley Quinn and the twisted, disturbing relationship & dichotomy between her & the Joker (as well as his relentless obsession to destroy Batman). Its impact was so CRITICALLY GOOD, that it was later adapted into an animated episode!

And of course, there was "Batman: The Lost Years", a classic five-issue mini-series that bridged the gap between the original "Animated Series" and the succeeding show "The New Batman Adventures". Detailing how the strained relationship ultimately broke down between Batman and Dick Grayson (then-Robin), how Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) ultimately gained Bruce Wayne's trust and proved her worth as his partner, how young neophyte Tim Drake arrived on the scene and became the new Robin, before ending with Dick coming home as Nightwing, Batman: The Lost Years was (again) all excellent, well-received stuff, to the point where it was adapted into the actual TV series itself.

So...because of all that, you should buy Batman: Gotham Adventures, yes? Well, why not? Collecting the first six issues of the brilliant Gotham Adventures comic, this book has the same winning formula of the Animated Series itself.

Format: Paperback
Do not let the fact that this is in the same style as the cartoon t.v. series put you off. For me the writers of this book got everything just right.
From the evil, scary glint in the Joker`s eyes down to Nightwings independent streak,this book gives you what the title promises, everyday adventures in the lives of Gothams crime fighters.
Of course it is not as dark as the mainstearm Batman books, it is quite a refreshing romp whilst it does not stray from the winning formula.
If you are looking for a true Batman book but are sick of the Dark oppressive stories that are so popular at the moment then this is the book for you.

Lovely art work, in keeping with the animated series and a nice flow to the stories makes this an entertaining read. It has all the feel of the Batman from the Comics with the slightly more far fetched plots of the TV series. A nice read for youngsters of all age. No Batman fan will be disappointed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Following on the excellent Batman: The Lost Years, these Gotham Adventures show the Bat-Family taking it to the likes of the Joker, the Riddler, Two-Face, Clayface, Mr Freeze and Scarecrow in these six comic strips. Done in the style of (and set in the same continuity as) The New Batman Adventures, there are some terrific tales to indulge in.

Complete with the stern, resolute, ever-legendary Batman, the independent streak and tenacity of Nightwing, the sassy, sharp and highly capable Batgirl and the youthful, energetic, brand-new Robin, this is a book for all Batman fans.

The Batman I've been looking for. 11 April 2001
By Zack Davisson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Don't be scared off by the Gr. 5-10 rating. This is high quality comics. "Batman: Gotham Adventures" is the Batman family unrestrained by years of complex continuity coupled with interesting, fun stories that strike at the heart of the characters. The art is dynamic and fluid, following Bruce Timm's "animated" style.
This collection takes up where "The Batman Adventures : The Lost Years" leaves off. Dick Grayson has taken up the mantle of Nightwing, and has come to terms with the replacement Robin, Tim Drake. Bruce Wayne has accepted the need for allies in his personal war. (yes, there really is this level of characterization.) Best of all, Barbara Gordon is not in a wheel chair, but flying alongside them in her role as Batgirl.
Good fun, which is somthing that tends to be missing from modern comics.

Graphic Novel for Adult and Kid Batman Fans Alike 19 Dec. 2005
By L. Mintah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was not expecting much when I picked up Batman: Gotham Adventures; just a momentary diversion with perhaps a snatch or two of Gotham's Greatest Superhero at his best. How wrong I was. The book is excellent all-around. The graphic novel contains the first six issues of the comic book by the same title, originally published in 1998.

Ty Templeton does an incredibly sensitive job writing fresh, exciting stories that genuinely pull on your heartstrings as well as deliver plenty of action. Penciller/Inker/Colorist team of Rich Burchett, Terry Beatty, and Lee Loughridge evoke the old animated series very well. Gotham is big and mysterious, and the characterizations of Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and the gallery of rouges are skillfully executed.

"With a Price on His Head!" - Joker (no Harley in this issue, sorry Quinn fans) kills a media magnate's son over a trifle. The father issues a reward for anyone who will kill the Joker. Now all of Gotham is armed to the teeth and hunting the clown prince of crime. Batman is placed in the position of having to protect his worst enemy.

"Lucky Day" - Two Face is seeking revenge against his father, who has just won it big on a game show.

"Just Another Day" - A boy with almost pathological delusions of being Batman's friend and helper is put in the position to help his idol. Bonus for Gray Ghost fans.

"Claws" - This story really tugs at your heartstrings. Selina Kyle explains why her heart broke twice in one night.

"Polar Opposites" - Great Mr. Freeze title. Grant Walker, whom Freeze froze in an iceberg, comes back to seek revenge.

"Last Chance" - Mystical twist. A trapeze artist working with Dick is shot mid-air. But why? Only the dead man's spirit can lead the Bat Team to the truth.

Great! 24 Sept. 2000
By Trebron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a collection of issues #1-6 of the comic book series: Batman Gotham Adventures (The same title of this book.) This book has great stories, with great art. This book has some of the best Batman stories ever told. If you like this book as much as I did I also recomend, The Batman Adventures: The Lost Years.
