    This tie-in has been delayed quite a bit, but the conclusion is finally here—with a pitched showdown at Haly’s Circus. A grieving and vengeful Killer Croc, a deadly cult that has tricked Batman into potentially signing the city’s death warrant, and a scheming Penguin who has looped Robin into his scheme all converge on the site where a horrible tragedy happened years back. There are so many players in this story that it’s a little bit of a mess, but it has one big thing going for it—a fascinating aesthetic that reminds me a lot of the world of Batman ‘66 with a darker edge. This obviously ties into a lot of podcasts, and more content is coming in this world, so this doesn’t even come close to trying up all the plotlines and loose ends here. However, it does a good job of hooking people into this world and making it more likely that they’ll jump into the podcast and build its audience.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Gotham City has been in so much peril over the many, many decades it’s been around. It’s kind of hard to do that in a way that feels fresh, original, and genuinely dangerous. The author and company manage to do something that feels more or less precisely where it needs to be in order to bring across a genuine sense of danger. However, the tension seems to be moving just a little bit too quickly for it to really come across as anything more than a very quick and breezy fugue.

    Batman-News

    These first seven issues follow the story of a band of confusing cultists chasing a sword around the city as Killer Croc goes insane elsewhere. While not exactly anti-religious, the story heavily criticizes rituals, prophecy, and themes of self sacrifice. Toward the end, McNicholas implies that following anything blindly can be dangerous. Overall, whether a voice in your head, demonic doctrine, the whims of an adversary, or a mentor with good intentions; striving for the best path for yourself is more important. Tonally, the book feels good, but thematically it falls short. At times it can be surprisingly mature, but it mostly has the tone of Nickelodeon’s Doug (1991). I think it still serves as a good companion piece for the podcast, if not entirely satisfying or cohesive as a comic book series.

    Dark Knight News

    The entire series feels like a strange mish-mash of plots that barely connect, wrapped in a beautiful, but also inappropriately cartoony art. It should be no surprise that Batman: The Audio Adventures #7 would’ve been any different.
