Batman Beyond Limited? (False Alarm)

Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2219 posts) - - Show Bio

DC, there had better have been some kind of a mix up...

One OF FOUR?

This was announced as an ongoing wasn't it? Am I crazy? The solicits don't list any of the issues as 'of 4.' The 4th issue doesn't even say its the last. It'd be bad enough to gives us back Batman Beyond after ending it with The New 52 as only a 4 issue miniseries, but to reassure us for MONTHS that it was an ongoing only to reduce it to 4 issues? Not even The Joker is that cruel. I have until wednesday to maintain plausible denial... PLEASE don't let this be true.

EDIT: So I went to my LCS today, and though obviously they weren't selling them yet, they had tomorrow's comics on the counter, ready to put them in boxes for people's pull lists and the shelf; etc.

Long story short, CBR, for whatever reason, had an incorrect image. Still confused at why they're have a picture of the cover screwed up so specifically, but regardless, the actual print copies DO NOT say "1 of 4" they simply say '1'. Batman Beyond Unlimited is still and ongoing.

I think Batman Beyond is the ongoing and Batman Beyond Unlimited is a mini

That sounds right.

@spiderbat87: It was my understanding that Batman Beyond Unlimited is pretty much just the print version of the digital Batman Beyond. And Justice League Beyond. And starting with #3, Superman Beyond. All 3 starting out as digitals but collected together in 1 print ongoing alongside the ongoing digitals.

And again, the solicits never listed it as a mini.

@The Mighty Monarch: It is an ongoing series, not a mini. Where did you get the image from?

Hopefully this is a mistake because I've been under the impression that this was an ongoing series, not a mini. It wouldn't be fair to the fans of the last Batman Beyond series to see it get canceled, have it return as a digital comic reprinted with other digital comics as an actual comic, and then finding out it was only a mini-series and not even an ongoing.
 
But in all honesty, if this does turn out to be right and it is just a mini, I would like it if DC would bring back Batman Beyond as its own series again. I really could care less about the members of the Justice League, just give me my Terry McGinnis...

Odd that it has the old DC logo.

Confused :/

Hopefully this is a photoshopped image or a misprint. I was really looking forward to reading about the JLU, SMU, and BBU stories.

Now the Official DC site has a post with the incorrect '1 of 4' version of the cover. *Facepalms hard.* Now the incompetence is mentally painful.

@The Mighty Monarch: LOOOL. That's... laughable really.

I can't even read this blog yet because I don't have my copy yet. And 5 pm can't come soon enough!

@ReVamp: @The Poet: What it is, is sad. How are we supposed to trust the editors (Or at least this one in particular) to do their job and make sure we get quality products when they make such blatant mistakes? How did a version of that cover even get made? Much less posted ON THE EDITOR'S BLOG.

@The Mighty Monarch: If I wasn't invested in this series, then I would find this amusing. But I am invested, so I am not happy. I hope this does affect sales.

@The Mighty Monarch: Eh, might not be such a big deal...

#22 Posted by The Mighty Monarch (2219 posts) - - Show Bio

@MonkeyToe: I didn't say anything about the content. Simply the inexplicable false cover listing it as the first issue in a 4 issue miniseries instead of the first issue of an ongoing.

@ReVamp: It's just that it's such a blatant and inexplicable mistake. Why did that version of the cover even come into existence? It was announced from the start to be an ongoing, and even if it was an early cover mock-up, why would they have the image for '1 of 4,' DC doesn't even publish that many 4-Issue miniseries; I would even wager to guess that an early mock up of a cover for a miniseries would have the more frequently used '1' just for convenience's sake to see how it looks in that case. But to have an editor make a post with this version implies nobody took even 5 god damn seconds to glance over the image to make sure nothing was wrong before posting it to the millions of masses on the web. NOBODY could spare 5 seconds of quality assurance? Not even an EDITOR?

@The Mighty Monarch: Well, for one I'm was excluding the fact that it came into existence and secondly, it doesn't really matter. There are worse mistakes. Its stupid yes, but I don't feel it deserves too much hate.
