Exclusive Preview | ‘Batman Beyond’ # 1

Just prior to DC Rebirth, the original Batman Beyond, Terry McGinnis returned to claim the mantle of the Bat. But his happy homecoming may not last long!

This week, a brand new Batman Beyond ongoing series kicks off, and Terry’s already running behind to stop the Jokerz’s most outrageous plan yet. Somehow, these would-be disciples of the Joker claim to have found the body of the mad man who inspired their acts of lunacy, and they want to bring him back to life!. They’ve also captured Terry’s girlfriend, Dana, and she may get a first hand report of the Joker’s return!

In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Batman Beyond # 1, Terry is nowhere to be seen, but we do check in with Dana, Max, and Matt, as the battle to save Gotham continues!

Writer Dan Jurgens, artist Bernard Chang, and colorist Marcelo Maiolo are the primary creative team for this series. Here’s what DC Comics had to say about the first issue:

“THE RETURN part one! Terry McGinnis is back as Batman, much to the delight of his family and friends. But is the original Joker really back as well? Inspired by the possible return of their role model, the Jokerz have taken over an entire section of Gotham City and are determined to wreak havoc in the still-rebuilding city. While Batman battles chaos on the streets, his friend Dana is at the mercy of the new leader of the now-unified gang.”

Batman Beyond # 1 will be released on Wednesday, October 26 in comic book stores everywhere.
