I am totally glad of having bought this TPB. I didn't expect much since the creative team wasn't much known and it wasn't one of the main titles on the DC line. However, the result was very good. Adam Beechen crafted a extremely good story using the best elements from the Batman Beyond lore knowing how to insert the stuff from Batman/Hush saga. This is a story quite entertained that maybe lack a little of the hard stuff shown on Return of the Joker but still it's an excellent script. On the art ...more

As a fan of Batman Beyond I am glad to see it come back, but a little disappoint in the execution. The artwork does a great job representing the style of the show. Part of the reason Beyond was so successful was the creators did not just do “Beyond” versions of Batman rogues. The few times they did do it they were extremely well done (Mr. Freeze and Joker). The strength came from Terry facing his own villains and solving the problems his own way. Not so much here, the writers do the opposite her ...more

Technically, this is the only canon pre-new 52 Batman Beyond book.... except it's not exactly canon because it takes certain events from the Batman Beyond animated series. The idea was to mesh Batman comic book continuity with some events that happened in the Batman Beyond animated series. So in other words, continuity wise this is a mess, but it's still a pretty solid read in its own right. ...more

This wasn't my favorite Batman Beyond storyline. Bruce's character seems to be taken to extremes as a means to push the plot forward instead of for any real character development. His "development" at the end feels forced and emotionless. Terry, too, felt a little flat--no more than a tired teenager trying to prove himself to the old man. But there was no sense of the REASON he was working so hard. No sense of the troubled youth with a sense of justice that made the tv show so compelling.

I would have liked a little more just Terry and it makes me a bit sad that all of the former bat family are bitter, but all in all, I liked this a lot.

Despite my years as a Batman fan, I never watched Batman Beyond until this last year - within just a few episodes, I understood why this television series was so beloved, and I immediately began looking into all the related comic books. Hush Beyond was a recommendation from fans that really caught my attention, and now that I’ve completed the limited series I can see why so many fans of the show enjoyed this comic.

Prior to diving into Hush Beyond, I’d recommend that you complete both the televis

One of my all-time-favorite television series (animated or otherwise) EVER returns in the form of a monthly comic book. That's great. What's even better is that it turned out to be so good. Striking a perfect balance between the Timmverse (the collection of cartoon series run by Bruce Timm, such as Batman: The Animated Series, Batman Beyond, and Justice League) and the DCU (the printed comic book universe of DC characters), it told a story tying together the comic book Batman with the animated t ...more

i'll admit that i was drawn to this because i was a huge fan of the cartoon. in fact, while i was wrapping all of my holiday gifts, i decided to have myself a batman beyond marathon (yes, i own all of the dvds). clearly, that marathon put me in the appropriate mood to not only truly appreciate this graphic novel, but propelled me to buy it in the first place.

this was much darker and more sinister than the batman beyond cartoon (in terms of blood, violence, villains), but that's also expected in

Was it anything close to as good as the show? No, but it was still fun. Bruce Timm and his cohorts did their best not to just do "Joker Beyond" or "Two Face Beyond" over and over and make a stand-alone show, but some curiousities were annoyingly never answered. What did happen to all those characters we loved so much from "Batman: The Animated Series?" We got some answers in the "Return of the Joker" movie, but the fact that we never got to check in with Dick Grayson in the entirety of "Batman B ...more

Someone is killing the original Batman's enemies. It looks like the baddie may be Hush but he's supposed to be dead. This is a great story, an ideal introduction to the Batman Beyond universe. All the characters are fleshed out, and its nice to see how they all end up. A true page turner. A very good read. ...more

I don’t know much about Batman Beyond other than the fact that the big brother from Boy Meets World did the voice for Batman in the cartoon. That is pretty cool and enough to pique my interest. It turns out the YA section of my local library has a ton of DC trade paperbacks, and I found this bad boy there so I gave it a go.

In the Batman Beyond world (which has a Gotham meets cyberpunk aesthetic), Bruce Wayne is an old man with a dog named Ace. He’s hung up his suit for good, but he’s still Batma

I LOVE Batman Beyond so I figured I'd give this book a shot and wow do I hate this. The book tries to tell a Batman Beyond story using characters from the mainline continuity and I think it fails miserably.

I'm not a fan of the original Hush and I dont find this version very compelling either. And while it could be argued that the appeal of Batman Beyond is more so Terry's relationships and not his rogues gallery, the relationships aren't done well here either. Terry's family and girlfriend are h

I decided to read this because I absolutely love the original Batman: Hush story. It's one of my favorite Batman books. This Hush did not disappoint, but as my first foray into the Batman Beyond universe and story lines... Wow, what a trip. Terry McGinnis is a gift to this world, and one of the only people I will accept as a new Batman. I'm very attached to Bruce Wayne as Batman. But wow, the dynamics of the Bat Family are so messed up in Neo Gotham.

As for the Hush story line, it was great, just

Ahh, I'm so glad I picked this up! This is the sequel to Hush, one of the best Batman graphic novels of all time - which, admittedly, does not require a sequel. However, this book does a great job introducing batman villains and allies, enfolding them in the beyond timeline and developing their characters in believable fashion. The art perfectly blends the style of the batman beyond TV show with a classic comic book style. The story is reminiscent of the original Hush without retrodding familiar ...more

Someone disguising as Hush in Neo-Gotham is killing off Batman's former villains, Bruce and Terry must work together to find out who's behind the killings with the help of a new Catwoman and Dick Grayson.

The twist was quite good and the bigger twist was revealed during the epilogue. The limited series extended the storyline from the TV show in a meaningful way. If you liked Batman Beyond, this would be a must read for you.

This is I guess an attempt to restart Batman Beyond in 2010 and it just doesn't cut it. The art is low-res digital with pixels clearly visible and plain bad at times, the coloring is muted for whatever reason and the characters are all grumpy and sad. In 2010's vision of the future it's just not okay for Bruce Wayne to constantly scream into the radio "McGinnis, report!", like the video streams are not invented yet.

The setting is again Gotham City of the future. Teenager Terry McGinnis has inherited the cape and cowl of Batman from Bruce Wayne, who has mostly retired. There is a breakout at Cadmus Labs, and someone begins hunting down old enemies of the original Batman, using the name Hush. The killer knows too many of Batman's tricks, and it will take the intervention of allies old and new to win this time. ...more

While a decent book with some good character development, there was nothing special about the overall storyline.

A serial killer is targetting villains and anyone associated with the old Batman and they're going by the name of the Batman villain H.U.S.H.

Sometimes a really good story can break a character and I think that's the case with Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. It's a phenomenal film, but it's also been the template for far too many comic stories. This book essentially rips off that basic plot, misses the spirit and susbtance of it and adds nothing interesting to the story. It also doesn't make

I had heard that Batman Beyond: Hush Beyond wasn't very good. The complaints were that that the artwork was bad, the plot stunk, it had nothing to do with the cartoon, etc. I ignored those concerns and read the comic anyways. I have to admit that the criticisms were almost all right. I say almost because the story was actually quite interesting, and many of the problems of the story were solved or justified in the last quarter of the plot. Sadly, however, it ignored much of the established conti ...more

Eh. Sometimes I love the idea of Batman Beyond, but I just don't like or agree with the characterization that Bruce doesn't ultimately care about all his sons and I hate this future where apparently he's on the outs with every one. I liked seeing Beyond!Dick as, not being an avid Beyond reader I haven't known where he was, but yeah. I don't like the characterization. Aside from Bruce apologizing at the end.

The epilogue was intriguing at least. Thawne and more clones. Hmm.

World: The covers are gorgeous, the art is also very strong. The sense of motion could be better, but the framing and the facial character models are quite good. The world building is the strongest part of the story, with the name you know this shares a lot with the Hush storyline and it's done well. It calls back to that classic tale Loeb/Lee both in the art and in the story structure and characters. That added spices makes this story more than it actually is.

Story: The story is well
