Batman Beyond 2.0 Goes Weekly
I haven't made a post about Batman Beyond 2.0 here in awhile, and that's because it's in the middle of an alternate universe crossover with Justice League Beyond 2.0, which I don't to read, so I don't really want to spend time on contextualize everything that happens in Batman. But nevertheless, once that's over, Batman Beyond 2.0 coverage will resume, and with a bang.
Starting with chapter #25, Batman Beyond 2.0 is going weekly with the big story of what has happened between Bruce and Terry, with big flashback sequences, all in the vein of something as big to the universe as Return of the Joker was... Oh and, Phantasm is back. Along with that news, Phil Hester will be drawing the new arc, along with Eric Wight, a character designer on the Batman Beyond show, who will be illustrating the flashbacks. Still not over! Kyle Higgin's C.O.W.L. (his new Image series which comes out in two weeks, #1 is very good) co-writer Alec Siegel will also be joining the book as co-writer.
So yeah, that's what I get for dropping coverage of the crossover... once it comes back, twice the work to do along with a crazy as storyline. Serves me right.
