Earlier this month, DC Entertainment released Batman: Strange Days, a new, animated short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past for the 75th anniversary of the comic book character.
Continuing with the year-long Batman anniversary celebration, DC has released a new short, which debuted over the weekend at WonderCon in Anaheim, CA, and has now been released online. The new short, directed by artist Darwyn Cooke, takes place in the Batman Beyond universe (from the 1999 television series) and features the return of Kevin Conroy (as the voice of Bruce Wayne) and Will Friedle (as the voice of Terry McGinnis/Batman).
This 9-disc DVD set comes with all 52 episodes of the Batman Beyond animated series and includes bonus features and a 24-page collectible booklet. See full details of set here below and grab this box set now before the deal ends!
Not content to wait until the New York Comic-Con starts, DC got a jump on Wednesday by announcing that the Batman Beyond comic book series, previously planned as a 6-issue mini-series will now get an ongoing series. January will see a new #1 issue, featuring the same creative team as the mini. Writer Adam Beechen and artist Ryan Benjamin will continue to bring readers the further adventures of Terry McGinnis, the Batman of the future.
The mini has seen McGinnis take on some version of the Batman villain Hush. McGinnis, with assistance from Bruce Wayne, has had to protect some of the Batman’s former villains from a bandaged foe, and while the whole mystery has yet to be revealed, it’s been a fun ride so far, and it seems that readers have reacted enough that DC thought it was a good idea to take the series full time.
This week, DC Comics and Warner Home Video announced something that all the fans of their popular animated series franchise have been dying to get their hands on. For the first time in its history, every episode of The Dark Knight of Tomorrow, Batman Beyond, will be collected and sold to you in a single boxed limited-edition set coming November 23, just in time for the holidays!
Batman Beyond: The Complete Series box set comes loaded with 9 discs with all 52 episodes for a suggested retail price of $99.99, and is packed full of extra goodies to make that price tag seem like chump change. The set includes all new bonus content and an art book that opens your eyes to the creation of the series.
