Batman Beyond, Issue 1

DC Comics is going back to the future with the return of Batman Beyond in a new 6 issue mini series. Written by Adam Beechen, an Emmy nominated animation writer who has worked on Batman: The Brave and the Bold, with art by Ryan Benjamin.

When a new villain begins targeting the Dark Knight’s old foes, the future’s Batman, Terry McGinnis, must search into Bruce Wayne’s past and find out who the villain is. I was a big fan of Batman Beyond and I’m surprised that it has taken this long to revisit the characters.  The show was innovation and an interesting twist on the future of the Batman universe.

The animated series lasted for three seasons and spun off two movies, including the fan loved Return of the Joker, which had a darker tone then the series but really showed what they could do with the characters.
