Batman Beyond 2.0
Batman Beyond 2.0 Chapter 11 is here! Kyle Higgins, the masterful Nightwing Scribe continues writing a great tale in the Beyond Universe, and this time we get the next chapter! It’s Terry and Bruce working together again, but that’s not all we see in this issue! This will be a SPOILER FREE Review!
In Chapter Eleven, we see Bruce and Terry team up for the first time in a long time! I really love how Kyle Higgins eases us into the story of what the hell happened between the time of Joker Night and now!
The Bat-Men “Apprehensive Allies” Part 3 of 7
Chapter 11 of Batman Beyond 2.0 is character building all the way through. We see the heroes and the villains all get amazing character development. I can’t praise this series enough, it is so well structured, and planned out. It gives us great stories and art, at the same time of keeping us on the edge of our seats.
So here we see what has happened to the two kidnapped workers, and we also see reflections of the past with Babs and Dick having an emotional scene. I love how Kyle writes these characters. It really makes me want the cartoon to return!!! So in this issue we have Bruce and Terry on the search for Langstrom, we have the prisoners being unfairly treated, and Babs and Grayson chatting it up. We also see The New Mayor of Gotham repremand Barbara and cut her timetable by four hours. So the hunt is on for Man-Bat and his henchmen!
I love how fluid Kyle’s writing is here, there are times when monologues are not needed at all, and Bat Beyond 2.0 doesn’t have them. I do not miss them at all. Story building is what this and the previous issue has done, and I know by now that if I wait long enough the action will happen. The mixture of action packed adventure storytelling, and emotional storytelling is something Kyle does very well to mix the two together!
BATMOBILE? DID YOU JUST SAY BATMOBILE? … DID HE JUST SAY BATMOBILE? YES!!! Finally in 2.0 we see the Beyond Batmobile, and Thony Silas knocked it outta the park! Once again the colors done by Emilio Lopez pop like you’ve never seen. Silas’s art here is superb!!!
I love the way Thony brings his own touch, yet remains true to the established Bat Beyond characters. Neo Gotham as a backdrop has never looked so good! I will say that there was one scene that creeped me out, while I got it’s emotional importance, it was just creepy as all hell. I’ll wait and see if you can figure out which scene it is. My hope is that the Batmobile will be making more appearances in the future. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the art here at all.
My final thought is STOP READING THIS, if you haven’t already, and go get BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 Chapter 11. It’s the third chapter in this 7 part story 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 goes beyond all expectations!
