This book seems to suffer from a sharp drop in quality compared to the first two -- very odd, considering that it appears to be the same creative team!

The first two collections of The Batman Strikes, Crime Time and In Darkest Knight, are both manga-sized and slender; they collect five issues each. This collection, Duty Calls, is a trade paperback collecting seven issues, and it seems like the "usual" size for a comic book trade paperback. I don't know what size the individual issues were printed

Been a comics guy for years. LOVE Batman. But this was just further evidence of the extraordinary awesomeness of Paul Dini in Batman the Animated Series, the cartoon that not only appealed to kids it nailed Batman as a character that has rarely been equaled even in the comics. This was just kinda sad by comparison.

I liked that we get to see young Batgirl and Ivy--even if it does seem a little strange to me--seing them so young I mean. I love that the "Joker" get's to ride Batman's car--halarious! Over all it was well written with a good artist as well. It just wasn't my favorite Batman comic.

Good quality Batman for kids. I grew up on the Batman tv shows, and have been reading all I can about him. This doesn't seem to be all that revolutionary or groundbreaking, but it works for some good Batman fun, and is appropriate for little ones.

Batman for Kids, based on the newer animated fare, not quite the quality of the Paul Dini series. Serves a purpose, but nothing I'd read again or recommend.
