I have zero interest in a Batman Beyond title that isn't Terry. This went from a buy to a pass when I found out about the change. My biggest question though is why. What made them think this was the way to do a Beyond title.
Man, I loved the digital first series. It was so good.
To each his own. I personally would rather pay a dollar more for near guaranteed great content than pay for a cheaper comic which I'm nearly guaranteed the company doesn't give a crap about it's own content. Marvel might be more greedy, but DC produces crap. You get what you pay for.
