Batman Beyond #37 Gets a Second Printing

The Dark Knight of Neo-Gotham has returned to protect the streets, but it’s not Terry McGinness. Not even close!

The debut of a “Beyond” version of Batwoman in the pages of Batman Beyond #37 (“First Flight, Part One”) was a big hit with fans when it went on sale October 23, and DC is making sure that any readers that missed it get a second chance as the publisher announced plans to return to press for a second printing of the comic book, written by Dan Jurgens with art by Sean Chen, Sean Parsons, Chris Sotomayor, and Travis Lanham.

An amnesia-stricken Terry McGinnis walks the streets of Gotham, untraceable by Terry’s younger brother Matt, or Bruce Wayne. Since Batman hasn’t been seen for days, many of Neo-Gotham’s citizens fear him wounded or dead. Just when the city’s criminals think it’s safe to crawl out of their holes to threaten the safety of the town, a familiar figure in a black and red costume appears, dealing swift and terrible justice to these evildoers, then vanishing just as swiftly.

When reporter Jack Ryder is live at a hostage situation, he witnesses first hand this grim avenger at work, thinking for sure that Batman has returned. But on live TV it looks like the mystery behind Batman’s disappearance only deepens, when it’s revealed that this Batman is actually a Bat-woman…

And just to make things interesting, issue #37 ends with a bang, with the return of Blight, who won’t rest until he’s put an end to Bruce Wayne!

This second printing is expected to arrive in participating comic book stores on Wednesday, November 27.

Batman Beyond: The Complete Series Limited Edition on Blu-Ray is Out this Tuesday

Batman Beyond, the landmark animated television series that illuminated the imagination of a new generation of Batman fans with its creation of an altogether new hero, is celebrating its 20th anniversary – and you get the gift! Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has remastered the heralded series for its first-ever presentation on Blu-ray in the all-encompassing Batman Beyond: The Complete Animated Series Limited Edition, arriving on Digital ($49.99 SRP USA, $59.99 SRP Canada) starting October 15, 2019 and in a stunning box set ($99.99 SRP USA, $119.99 SRP Canada) on October 29, 2019. Distribution in Canada will be day-and-date with the USA, Pre-orders are now available.

The extraordinary Batman Beyond: The Complete Animated Series Limited Edition package features approximately 1,500 minutes of entertainment spread over four Blu-ray discs, plus the two bonus discs of enhanced content. In addition to a newly-remastered Blu-ray presentation of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, there are 15 featurettes on the bonus discs, highlighted by two new inside looks at the beloved television series, led by Nostalgic Tomorrow, a gathering of Batman Beyond production talent and cast led by executive producer Bruce Timm and actors Kevin Conroy and Will Friedle, the voices of Batman and Terry McGinnis, respectively. The bonus discs also spotlight four episodes with audio commentary from Timm and select members of the production team.

Collectibles within the stunning packaging include an exclusive chrome Batman Beyond Funko POP, and four beautifully-designed lenticular art cards produced especially for Batman Beyond: The Complete Animated Series Limited Edition. This ultimate collectors Blu-ray box set will be individually numbered for a Limited Edition release of 50,000.

Of the 52 original Batman Beyond episodes, 41 have been fully-remastered from either their original 35mm film source or the uncommon format “OCND,” the original camera negative digital (a digital scan of original negative). Lines and resolution have been enhanced, and dust and dirt have been removed – however, cell dirt remains to not disturb the original picture. Included in the remastering was the removal of grain, resulting in enhanced colors. The remastering process does cause a slight aspect ratio change (approximately 3% loss of screen image).

Due to time-worn irreparable damage, the remaining 11 episodes were “Smart Rezzed” from standard definition Digibeta video. The process provides for significant enhanced resolution and improvement of the original source material in converting from standard to high definition, though it does sacrifice horizontal lines for clearer image and color representation. While still a marked improvement over the original video, viewers will notice a slight difference between the Remastered and the Up-Rezzed final footage. The 11 affected episodes are: “Eyewitness,” “Final Cut,” “The Last Resort,” “Armory,” “Sneak Peek,” “The Eggbaby,” “Zeta,” “Plague,” “April Moon,” “Sentries of the Lost Cosmos” and “Speak No Evil.”
