Read this story a year or two ago. Its pretty good. On the Azrael side of things it actually served as a good move forward for JPV as he doesn't/can't rely on the brainwashed assassin side of him to take Bane on. Its one of my favorite favorite stories for both Bane and Azarel.

I actually dug the issue and didn't find much fault in it. I thought the length was perfectly fine for the particular story they were trying to tell. They can easily go into further development on other aspects of Cheetah down the road. Oh and the FBI agent is the New 52 introduction of Manhunter (Shaw). He isn't really a big player so I wasn't expecting too much from him here.

@undeadpool: I rather read Azzarello's take. I'm not a fan of the Villain event thing. I liked how the Wonder Woman comic wasn't connected to the rest of the New 52 titles.

Azzarello doesn't care much for WW's rogue's gallery or general cast. Its why he used practically none of them in his run. You can read Azzarello's writing with First Born next week.

Really surprised that Kindt went in such a dark direction. Its amazing how bad DC's understanding of the character has been in the New 52. I just can't understand why they would go out of their way to alienate her fanbase with a more grim/dark/evil variation of the character to please a smaller section of fandom who want her more evil. It makes no sense. Was going to give Kindt's Suicide Squad a chance, but if this is how he writing Harley there is no way in hell I'm picking up his run.

Does the print edition come out monthly?

Yep. It usually comes out the third week of each month under Batman Beyond Universe. The print version also features Justice League Beyond.

@lightsout: They are all related. The 2011 series is a continuation from Hush Beyond (terrible story which you don't need to read). The first digital first series was a continuation of the 2011 series. This new series is also a continuation of the last digital first series. Its just a relaunch done to push the new creative team.

Went with TTG. I like the black humor it has tendency towards. Don't dislike any of the other shows mentioned, but none of them have built upon a bigger story in an interesting way the way shows before them did.

I wait to read Batman Beyond in print, but I'm happy to hear Higgins is off to a good start. I thought Beechen started started off terribly with his Hush Beyond story, but really got the universe and turned in some solid stories by the end of his run. Very happy to hear Higgins is seemingly off to a better start.

Will you be reviewing Gage's Justice League Beyond as well?

I'm actually happy about this. I like the show fine, but would rather it stand on its own than taking from the Batverse. I already wasn't the happiest with how they used Huntress and Deadshot.

Not fond of this. I don't really like the relationship and Johns mentioned it would be ending in Trinity War. If this was just in the vein of Batman/Superman I would be fine with it. If its just to further push the romantic relationship then I have no interest of whatsoever.

There is no excuse for Thors vs. Gorr not making it. Deadshot vs. Unknown Soldier was nice, but nowhere near the same level.
