Batgirl, New Creative Teams Coming to ‘Beyond’ Digital Series this Summer

Batgirl, New Creative Teams Coming to ‘Beyond’ Digital...

By Brandy Phillips Friday, March 29th, 2013

Popular digital-first series BATMAN BEYOND and JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND will be getting new creative teams starting in late Summer 2013.

Kyle Higgins (Nightwing) will join BATMAN BEYOND as writer, with Thony Silas (Venom) joining the book as artist and Sean Murphy (Joe the Barbarian, Punk Rock Jesus, The Wake) doing covers. Christos N. Gage  (Avengers Academy, Angel & Faith) will join JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND as writer and he’ll be joined by Iban Coello (Superboy) on art.

Before the new BATMAN BEYOND creative team takes over in late summer, readers will get a special treat when a new Batgirl joins the Beyond Universe for an upcoming arc starting in July. In this story, Police Commissioner Barbara Gordon meets a mysterious young girl with a familiar bat-symbol, who not only saves her life twice, but gives her hope that brighter days are ahead. The Batgirl arc will be written by Scott Peterson (BATGIRL) and illustrated by Annie Wu (HOUSE OF MYSTERY, Venture Bros).

New digital chapters from the BEYOND series are available for download every Saturday.  The BEYOND series are also collected in print as BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED with new issues available monthly.
