BATMAN: THE ADVENTURES CONTINUE

DC Comics has announced Batman: The Adventures Continuum, a digital-first six-issue mini-series launching on May 6, co-written by Paul Dini and Alan Burnett, both producers of the original animated series, and illustrated by Ty Templeton, who has brought the world of B:TAS to comic books since 1992's Batman Adventures #1.

Inspired by Batman: The Animated Series, the new comics reflect a new era of the long-running DC Collectibles action figure line by featuring newly designed characters never before seen in the animated shows. DC's Batman: The Adventures Continue characters are all based on art by Ty Templeton in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style. New figures from DC Collectibles launch this spring, and now, together with these new comics, the legendary Batman: The Animated Series continues to reach new audiences.

"Fans familiar with the Batman of The New Batman/Superman Adventures will be right up to speed," Dini said. "Alan and I approached the writing with the idea that we were doing the season you might have seen if we had not put the series aside to do Batman Beyond."

"Tim Drake is still a very young Robin," Templeton said of the timing of the series. "Batman isn't middle-aged or anything, and wefre not even close to the events of Batman Beyond."

"What is different, however, is that wefre going back to cover certain gaps in the original series, events that didn't have a bearing on the series at the time, but now do," Burnett said. "In other words, there will be secret histories that will turn Batman's world upside down. Things that no one knew were out there, until now.

"Perhaps the most intriguing character in the run will be young man whose story threads through most of the issues. He's a smart, super-elusive loner who knows way too much about the Dark Knight. How this mystery man fits into the world of Batman Adventures and what he means to accomplish should, I hope, be a real jolt for old fans."

In the first issue of Batman: The Adventures Continue, collecting two digital-first chapters, Wayne Enterprises in Gotham City is attacked by a giant robot that steals an entire room from the laboratory. Who's controlling the robot? How will Batman stop the mechanized menace? And what does it all have to do with Lex Luthorfs sudden appearance in Gotham?

Batman: The Adventures Continue #1, written by Paul Dini and Alan Burnett with art by Ty Templeton and color by Monica Kubina, featuring a cover by Dave Johnson and a variant cover by Dan Mora, hits shelves on May 6, 2020. Digital-First chapters will be released beginning in April 2020



BRIEFLY

KRAVITZ ON FALLON: Zoe Kravitz, who plays Catwoman in the upcoming The Batman, was a guest on NBC's The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, flying in from the set in London.

"It's pretty cool," Kravitz said. "I'm legally not allowed to say anything, but it's good. The cast is amazing.

"It's funny because sometimes with big movies, it can alsmot feel like it's just bigger than you. But everyone is so exicted about this story, everyone is so invested. It's a really good energy on set."

EMPEROR HULKLING: Marvel Comics has released the cover art and details for Lords of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling, written by Chip Zdarsky and Anthony Oliveira, with art by Manuel Garcia and cover by Patrick Gleason.

Here's how Marvel describes the book, in stores on April 22:

"For as long as the universe can remember, the Kree and Skrull empires been locked in what seemed like a never-ending war, but now, a former Young Avenger has done the impossible. Abandoning Earth, his fellow heroes, and the love of his life, Hulkling has united both intergalactic empires under his rule and now heads to Earth with one of the largest armadas the cosmos has ever seen. What happens next will be chronicled in Marvel's biggest event of 2020, Empyre, as well as the essential one-shot, Lords Of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling.

"Written by Chip Zdarsky and Anthony Oliveira with art by Manuel Garcia, Lords of Empyre: Emperor Hulkling will show readers what led Hulkling on his bold new path and shed light on his mysterious plans..." gHulkling is one of the coolest characters in modern comics - he's the great scion of two galaxies-spanning empires, yet somehow one of its most sweetest, kindest, and down-to-earth heroes,h said Oliveira. gThis story is about really delving into that sense of restlessness, and his epic, classic hero's journey - Star-crossed romance! Colossal space battles! A long lost prince! - grounded in its heart with a question about what it might mean, and what it might cost, to be king.h
