In an effort to get their VHS catalogue onto DVD, WHV compiled two separate
Batman Beyond; VHS releases onto one disc, without a single extra to
be seen. The finished product, Batman Beyond: Tech Wars/Disappearing
Inque;, is pretty enjoyable. The lack of extras can be frustrating, but
the episode quality it top notch making it a worthy purchase.
This DVD release collects six very enjoyable episodes - "Heroes," "Lost
Soul," "Splicers," "Black Out," "Disappearing Inque," "Shriek." A mix of
episodes from the first and second season, highlights include the debut of
the popular character Inque and a rather morbid spin on the "Fantastic Four"
with three similar heroes.
The main menu contains a list of episodes and audio options. That's it. Not
a single other option. The transfers for these episodes are pretty standard,
not amazing but not terrible. In fact, these transfers on par with the
Batman Beyond: The Movie; DVD release from 1999.
It's a great bunch of episodes well worth the price. These DVDs are
remarkably cheap, costing no more than $8 - 10, so you shouldn't feel ripped
off in the slightest. Yes, there will be an eventual double-dip with these
episodes but this set should hold over fans until that times arrives.
This DVD release, and its counterpart Batman Beyond: School
Daze/Spellbound; are worth picking up to help us pass the time until the
inevitable Batman Beyond; box sets.
