Holy Bat Developments! Even More Ghosts Cloud Batman Beyond's Future!

So far as I’m concerned, BATMAN BEYOND never got enough love from fandom.  The futuristic incarnation of the Bats was more than a bit inspired: it gave the chance for an elderly Bruce Wayne to mentor the young upstart Terry McGinnis into his role as the new savior of Gotham while also giving a nod to several of the nefarious villains of the original Batman’s past.  The animated program lasted for three seasons on television, and, while there were brief on-and-off again rumors that a major motion picture was in the works, never appears to have ever seriously developed.

 

In any event, BATMAN BEYOND returned to comicdom with (so far) a great six-issue series that (so far) features young Terry having to face off with a whole host of members of the Rogues Gallery; however, given Hush’s involvement and Hush’s known proclivity for using other criminals to district the Bat from his central investigation, only time (and more reading) will tell.  But, so far, no less than Hush, Catwoman, and Cobblepot may be involved.  There’s also a second plotline involving the various data-storage crimes being tied together with this new Hush’s dealings, meaning there’s plenty of meat on the bones of this great return to tomorrow.

 

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.  This is only the second chapter (of six).  While there’s plenty of time and space for this to get off-track or to venture in already explored creative territory, it’s still shaping up quite nicely.  The artwork is strongly reminiscent of the TV show, and the flashback to Hush’s possibly demise at the hands of Bruce Wayne’s Batman even hints toward the stellar ink and colors in the original HUSH miniseries.  It’s a great continuation of the world created not too long ago.  Batfans would be wise to pick this us either digitally (that’s how I’m experiencing it), in single issues, or the trade paperback collection.
