DC Announces ‘Digital-First’ ‘Batman Beyond’ and ‘Justice League Beyond’ Titles
Helming Justice League Beyond are Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs, with Adam Beecham and Norm Breyfogle on Batman Beyond. The titles both expand on Batman Beyond’s animated series continuity, which ran for 52 episodes between 1999 and 2001 and included the animated feature Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, plus the “Epilogue” episode of Justice League Unlimited.
As pointed out by Robot 6, DC’s initial Batman Beyond series was among the first of the publisher’s title to be taken to a same-day print/digital release schedule prior to the “New 52″ relaunch that brought the rest of the line up to speed. As an all-ages title based on a popular and established multimedia franchise, the Batman Beyond Unlimited title might continue to function as something of a pilot title for other DC publishing strategies.
