LEVEL64 COMIC BOOK REVIEW: Batman Beyond Universe #1

REVIEW: Okay poll time, who watched the Batman Beyond animated series? Is your hand up? Mine is for sure. If you watched that show you’d see a lot of references and art style paralled in this book. I for one haven’t read any “Beyond” comics so I had high hopes for for this one. When we first open this book we are introduced to all the aged Bat-Family. Barbara Gordon (Batgirl), Dick Grayson (Robin/Nightwing), Bruce (Batman, DUH), and several new members the Batman’s Rogues Gallery.

The main highlight that I found interesting in this comic was the reveal of who caused the mayor’s heart attack. I found this book merely, okay. I expected some crazy bat-story but instead got an introduction to the life of Terry McGinnis and everyone who knows about his secret Bat-life of “The Traveling Cowl” (sorry, I had to go with it).

 

While showing the new Gotham, Arkham, and school Terry attends I thought this could’ve been one of the New 52′s #0 books if that was being done. I do believe that this series will build up though, as Bat-titles always do…but for now I’m unsure of what I like in this issue. So let me ask again, Who watched Batman Beyond? ~LEVEL64
