Andrew says: I'm a huge Batman Beyond and Bruce Timm  fan. The way they moved the concept/story into the future while still respecting and keeping the integrity of the original concept was genius. In my, The New 52 version, I didn't change much. The story and characters would essentially be the same, while I would revamp the style and art direction to give it a more Metal Gear Solid/Blade Runner/Matrix hybrid approach. I feel that out of all the series in the DCU, this one needs to look and feel fresh and hi-tech.

Batman Beyond was created by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. Read more...


  1. And you've tapped Robert Kirkman to write the story? Well, then, it's got a very good chance to push all the right buttons! I like the idea for a more edgy art direction too.

    Would read? Yes, I'm intrigued.

  2. Nice artwork but it's just too busy for a cover.
    Too hard to make out anything.

  3. This is one of my favorites. It has sort of a Madhouse vibe to it, plus the Matrix. Which is great, because Batman Beyond should be totally anime-inspired dark sci-fi. The art is spectacular, I don't care how busy it is. It gives a sense of how complex a device the Batsuit is. Very very nice. I would buy this no questions asked if I saw that cover in the store.

  4. There's nothing else like this out there! This is crazy and I'm all for it.
