Batman Beyond has always stood apart from the modern day Batman stories. The essence of the character and world was established as more than just taking Batman and the concepts and sticking them in a futuristic fashion. Kyle Higgins gets what this Universe is about and you can feel the story amping up in each chapter. Terry has gone through some changes, including working with a new partner. This evolution is one of the great things about the "2.0" continuation of the franchise. Allowing the characters and world to move forward a meet is making this series fresh and exciting. Thony Silas' art and Andrew Elder's colors sets up the tone of the story and characters nicely. If you've ever longed for more Batman Beyond stories, this is a series you need to check out. Higgins is giving us action and intrigue and each chapter reminds us why we loved the animated series so much. Read Full Review
The Batman Beyond 2.0 series is really off to a great start. I complimented the first few chapters for really mimicking that nostalgic tone well, but not playing it completely safe, and clearly shaking things up a bit. These two chapters follow right in line with where the series started. On the surface, there's a lot of fun and action in the punchy superhero type variety, but there's also a lot going on deep down, that I can't wait to find out about (aka, what happened in that One Year Later time gap). I believe I said something along these lines last month, but if you've ever been a fan of Batman Beyond, there's no reason not to pick these chapters up. Really fun reads. Read Full Review
