Iconic 1990s series “Batman: The Animated Series” and its follow-up “The New Batman Adventures’ are set to return – albeit in comic book form.
Original series producers Paul Dini and Alan Burnett will return to write “Batman: The Adventures Continue,” a new comic book spinoff from the classic cartoon over 20 years after the show went off air. Both will write the series as if it were a continuation of the animated show itself.
Dini said Thursday in a statement: “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.”
Burnett adds the plan will be to cover certain gaps in the original series: “events that didn’t have a bearing on the series at the time, but now do. 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.”
Ty Templeton will illustrate the series which will be released as a digital-first title in April, with print editions following May 6th.
