Batman Beyond 2.0
Bat Beyond 2.0 Chapter 32 is here! This is the beginning of a 5 chapter story arc. When the chips are down you can only afford to go “All In” This will be a slightly SPOILER FILLED Review!
All In Part 1 of 5 “Dealer’s Choice”
So some people I’ve talked with online thought we’d get an “Epilogue” style chapter here, to explain in more detail the fallout of Mark of the Phantasm. Honestly I am glad they didn’t do that. SURE in my last review for Chapter 31… I had many questions, but I figure with Higgins everything will be revealed in time. Although I LOVED Hester, Gapstur, and the rest of the MOTP team…. I’m VERY Happy to have Thony Silas back. I’ve said it before in my reviews of this series… It’s like Silas has brought the cartoon back to life.
So this first chapter of the new arc starts in the JL Timeline. We see Terry helping T train, and the no eye patch version of Grayson monitoring them. I like that Terry comes back to this timeline, but for this reason only. The other reason he’s here… I think is just very selfish, and takes away from the emotional impact a few of the reveals in MOTP had. That is my only complaint about the writing, the rest is great. Higgins and Siegel are taking Ghoul and making him more than just your average Jokerz Gang Member.
The last time we saw Inque in the cartoon was the ep where her daughter betrayed her. We “assumed” that she was gone for good, but I’m glad that Higgins is reaching into every aspect of the DCAU and bringing in villains that he wants to write, and ones that he knows we as fans want to see more of. I’m interested to see where Ghoul goes with these NEW partners he’s trying to assemble. I’d like to see the JL Timeline written about without Terry having to be there.
Thony the Tiger Silas is back!!!!! YES!!!! And his art along with Guy Major on colors make this issue a bombastic adventure!!!! There is so much to love here, between seeing the Red Bat Beyond and the Silver Bat Beyond suits in the same frames, and the colors on Ghoul, as well as Davis Dusk. The backgrounds are all well done too, and it’s just great seeing Thony return. This is the book he BELONGS on!!!
The main title of this story is “All In” And I truly am all in for anything Silas does in this series. I’m looking forward to seing the Batmobile a bit more, and can’t wait to see the freaky looking designs this art team will be doing for inque. All in all the art was fantastic here.
So Chapter 32 is here!! A new story, featuring Terry’s #1 Villain Inque. There’s so much to love here, and it has gotten me excited again for the series. Bring on Chapter 32 next week. You should go get BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 Chapter 32. This is the first chapter in this new arc! All within the Batman Beyond Universe, and you won’t wanna miss a second of it! You can find it on the DC Comics App or Comixology or wherever you get your digital comics. Batman Beyond 2.0 continues to go beyond all expectations! I mean JUST look at Inque below…… that is such awesome art and coloring!!!
