Batman Beyond 2.0
Continuing the epic animated universe crossover. Bat Beyond 2.0 Chapter 19 continues where Chapter 18 left off. This will be a slightly SPOILER FILLED Review!
Justice Lords Beyond Another World “The Ruins of Wayne” Part 3 of 8
Two Terry’s are working together…. ONE a Batman, the OTHER a Joker…. Dick Grayson and Barbara Gordon are married….. what STRANGE YET AWESOME timeline is this? It’s the JUSTICE LORDS timeline!!!
Since reading Adam Beechen’s run from the beginning, and reading Kyle’s continuation… I’ve loved this series all the way through. SURE there have been several times where I’ve raised questions about the story, but they eventually were answered! First of all the idea that TWO Terrys’ are each their own man, with each their own pasts is great. One the Batman, the other The Joker! That was an amazing revelation. I applaude Kyle for even taking it that direction!!!! There is a chase kinda feel with this issue. The writing is excellent, and Kyle doesn’t do anything to make you feel as if you are lost reading the story. I mean starting off at Dick and Barabara’s place! WOW what a revelation!!! That is simply awesome. Plus the mystery continues with what happened to Lord Batman….
Writing in a secret room BEHIND the cases of costumes was interesting. Because as our Terry says… “Bruce plans for EVERYTHING!” no matter what universe a Bruce Wayne is in. I wasn’t expecting the Manor to be THAT destroyed, but something AWESOME came out of the Ruins of Wayne!!!! My thoughts and concerns with this chapter are the following…. Are Dick and Babs on the side of LORD SUPERMAN… or are they just enforcers who might have a more noble agenda? I get it that Grayson attempted to arrest our Terry, but after reading this issue… I’m not so sure that Grayson and Gordon in the Justice Lords timeline are completely evil.
THONY SILAS RETURNS!!!! Do not get me wrong, I liked the other artists for their different takes. But Thony is the one that made me fall in love with this art. He sticks true to the animated series style and designs for the most part. So with Silas back, I am loving this story even more now!!! The backgrounds are all well done. Neo Gotham, even though in the justice Lords timeline… looks as it should. As far as purple sky, and crazy looking buildings. Normally I’d say something like … HEY that’s not what Grayson is supposewd to look like. Yet here I can’t because it’s DIFFERENT timeline!!!! Because of the direction Kyle took the story… I love how different the art styles are on our Terry and JL timeline Terry. There are many similarities, but more than enough differences. Yet JL timeline Terry seems as if he fits the animated series model quite well.
MAN THESE ISSUES NEED TO COME FASTER!!!! I’m loving every aspect of both Bat and JL Beyond 2.0!!!! I hate this waiting around stuff!!!! Once again this team continues to be perfect in this series. You should go get BATMAN BEYOND 2.0 Chapter 19. This is the fifth overall chapter of the JUSTICE LORDS OF GOTHAM crossover! 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!
