“Batman: The Adventures Continue” Comic Hits Digital April 2020, Print May 2020, From DC Comics

DC Comics has announced that Batman: The Adventures Continue, a digital-first mini-series based on Batman: The Animated Series, will be available in starting in April 2020, followed by a print edition in May 2020. The series, co-written by animated alums Paul Dini and Alan Burnett with artwork by Ty Templeton, will feature stories taking place following the events of The New Batman Adventures. Continue below for press details and artwork from the series.

New Comic Books, Set in the World of Batman: The Animated Series, Coming this May

From the visionary team behind Batman: The Animated Series come all-new stories set in this seminal animated world! Batman: The Adventures Continue, DC’s new, digital-first six-issue mini-series, launching in print on May 6, 2020, is co-written by Paul Dini and Alan Burnett, both producers of the original animated series, and illustrated by Ty Templeton, who has brought the world of B:TAS to comic books since 1992’s Batman Adventures #1.

Inspired by the beloved and Emmy Award-winning Batman: The Animated Series, these new comics reflect a new era of the long-running DC Collectibles action figure line by featuring newly designed characters never before seen in the beloved animated shows! DC’s Batman: The Adventures Continue characters are all based on art by Ty Templeton in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style. New figures from DC Collectibles launch this spring, and now, together with these new comics, the legendary Batman: The Animated Series continues to reach new audiences!

“Fans familiar with the Batman of The New Batman/Superman Adventures will be right up to speed,” says Paul Dini. “Alan and I approached the writing with the idea that we were doing the season you might have seen if we had not put the series aside to do Batman Beyond.”

“Tim Drake is still a very young Robin,” added Ty Templeton of the timing of the series. “Batman isn’t middle-aged or anything, and we’re not even close to the events of Batman Beyond.”

“What is different, however, is that we’re going back to cover certain gaps in the original series, events that didn’t have a bearing on the series at the time, but now do,” continued Alan Burnett. “In other words, there will be secret histories that will turn Batman’s world upside down. Things that no one knew were out there, until now.”

“Perhaps the most intriguing character in the run will be young man whose story threads through most of the issues,” teased Burnett. “He’s a smart, super-elusive loner who knows way too much about the Dark Knight. How this mystery man fits into the world of Batman Adventures and what he means to accomplish should, I hope, be a real jolt for old fans.”

In the first issue of Batman: The Adventures Continue, collecting two digital-first chapters, Wayne Enterprises in Gotham City is attacked by a giant robot that steals an entire room from the laboratory. Who’s controlling the robot? How will Batman stop the mechanized menace? And what does it all have to do with Lex Luthor’s sudden appearance in Gotham?

Batman: The Adventures Continue #1, written by Paul Dini and Alan Burnett with art by Ty Templeton and color by Monica Kubina, featuring a cover by Dave Johnson and a variant cover by Dan Mora, hits shelves on May 6, 2020. Digital-First chapters will be released beginning in April 2020.

For more imagery from Batman: The Adventures Continue, including the title’s logo, check out the gallery available at The World’s Finest.

Stay tuned for additional updates on Batman: The Adventures Continue right here at The World’s Finest. DC Collectibles is also releasing new additions to its Batman: The Adventures Continue action figure line, including new Batman and Catwoman variants, along with The Batman Who Laughs and Vampire Batman.
