DC Comics is launching a new series set in the world of Batman: The Animated Series. The comic is called Batman: The Adventure Continues, brought to you by the same folks who worked on the beloved ‘90s cartoon, series writers and producers Paul Dini and Alan Burnett. The comic will be drawn by Ty Templeton, a name that fans will recognize as the artist of 1992’s Batman Adventures comic, which also told stories set in the B:TAS universe.
The series will feature DC characters never before seen in the original show, using designs from the recent action figure line. These characters were designed by Templeton in the signature Bruce Timm art style. While DC’s press release doesn’t name which new characters will appear, the line includes the likes of Deathstroke, Azrael, Red Hood, and The Batman Who Laughs, so any of them are fair game.
Here’s a first look at the art. I’m very excited for this.
Issues will hit first digitally in chapter form starting in April, with print releases starting in May.
