Here is some good news for your Friday – Batman: The Animated Series is coming back! In Comic Book Form! From Paul Dini, Alan Burnett, and Ty Templeton! Really!
Batman: The Adventures Continue is a six-issue digital-first mini-series launching in print on May 6, 2020, and is set in the B:TAS universe.
Inspired by the beloved and Emmy Award-winning Batman: The Animated Series, these new comics reflect a new era of the long-running DC Collectibles action figure line by featuring newly designed characters never before seen in the beloved animated shows! DC’s Batman: The Adventures Continue characters are all based on art by Ty Templeton in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style. New figures from DC Collectibles launch this spring, and now, together with these new comics, the legendary Batman: The Animated Series continues to reach new audiences!
“Fans familiar with the Batman of The New Batman/Superman Adventures will be right up to speed,” said Paul Dini in a press release from DC Comics. “Alan and I approached the writing with the idea that we were doing the season you might have seen if we had not put the series aside to do Batman Beyond.”
“Tim Drake is still a very young Robin,” added Ty Templeton of the timing of the series. “Batman isn’t middle-aged or anything, and we’re not even close to the events of Batman Beyond.”
“What is different, however, is that we’re going back to cover certain gaps in the original series, events that didn’t have a bearing on the series at the time, but now do,” continued Alan Burnett. “In other words, there will be secret histories that will turn Batman’s world upside down. Things that no one knew were out there, until now.”
The first chapter arrives on digital in April 2020, with the print version arriving in May 2020.
