The best of all the Batman Beyond comics.
Scalenex
The action is solid, and if you like other Batman characters, then the many cameos and even plot-relevant appearances will be a treat.

The drawings are really good and the story is cool to.

When "Batman Beyond" premiered in 1999, I couldn't have been more excited. A show which featured my favorite super hero set in a futuristic Gotham City that resembled the world of "Blade Runner" was almost too much for my geek heart to process. It never disappointed me and assured fans of the Dark Knight that his legacy would never end. Twelve years after the last official episode of the series aired, the futuristic crime fighter's adventures continue in both Batman Beyond and Justice League Beyond comic titles.

"Batman Beyond: 10,000 Clowns" is a collection of the first sixteen print issues of the series, which were originally released in digital form. The trade paperback version is comprised of three different storylines entitled "The Trigger Man," "Legends of the Dark Knight: Jake," and "10,000 Clowns."

In "The Trigger Man," Batman comes face-to-face with a killer whose love for his dog makes him more dangerous than ever. When arms dealers abduct Mad Stan's prized pet, the criminal becomes even more dangerous in his pursuit of the kidnappers. The Dark Knight comes between Mad Stan and the arms dealers who took his little friend.

"Legends of the Dark Knight: Jake" tells the origin story of a new vigilante in Gotham City. After being a member of Derek Powers' Quiet Squad, Jake decides to make a change with his new career. It's time to use his talents to bring down criminals as a heavily armored hero named Vigilante. Could he become a new ally to Batman or will his methods of crime fighting pit him against the Dark Knight?

"10,000 Clowns" pits Batman against his most dangerous foe yet. A crazed maniac plans to carry on the Joker's legacy by bringing in an international army of the Clown Prince of Crime's followers to Gotham City.

I am not new to Batman or graphic novels. I've read most of the highly regarded Batman graphic novels, watched all the movies, the animated series, and Batman Beyond. I'm kind of nuts about Batman. Having said that, this is one of the best stories I've ever read.

I absolutely love the Batman Beyond universe. The first season of the tv show was amazing. I loved seeing old Bruce and what became of him and some of his enemies. Seasons two and three started to get too kid friendly but it was still a great series. Hush Beyond was very good but Industrial Revolution was lacking. I was kind of skeptical going in to 10,000 Clowns. After Industral Revolution I was seriously questioning the direction of this series. Boy am I glad I kept going.

Throughout the animated series I always thought the Jokers gang was pretty silly. They looked lame and I just couldn't take them as serious threats. This graphic novel changes all that. After being united under a new villain who anoints himself as the Joker King they unleash chaos on Gotham in a way that Joker never could do by himself. Although the Joker King is obviously not as good as the original he is wicked and carries on the legacy in a respectable way. Anarchy and nihilism reign supreme and it tests Batman and his allies like they have never been tested before. 10,000 Clowns is a masterpiece.

The opening story with Mad Stan is kind of weak but needed for the set up. However, the middle story about a character known as Jake is awesome and has a great twist.

Overall I would highly recommend this to any Batman fan. If you like Batman Beyond DON'T MISS THIS! Terry has found his nemesis.

Format: Paperback
10,000 clowns is a substantial improvement to an already exceptional series. The art style and consistency are now beautiful and coherent, something that Hush Beyond was lacking. The plot is also quite exceptional, much better than its previous "Industrial Revolution". Batman fans will be excited to see some familiar faces both from the protagonist Terry's past and that of Bruce Wayne's. I honestly cannot find anything negative to say about 10,000 clowns so if your'e a Batman Beyond fan it's a must read.

10,000 Clowns is great. The previous volumes of 'Batman Beyond' remind the reader of the rich world created by the early 2000s tv show and the brilliant premise of a geriatric Bruce Wayne coaching a protege via radio link. This volume realizes the potential of continuing that universe. Only criticism I have is that the book makes old Bruce a bit soft/sentimental, but that is balanced by the reader's love of watching 'the band' get back together. This is a great book.

Wow, this collection is going to be worth it. If you like comics and Batman, buy this!

This is one of the most engaging and gripping DC graphic novels set in the Batman Beyond Universe. You do not have to have seen the show or read any of the previous two collections ( Hush Beyond and Industrial Revolution) to understand the story since previous events are summarised (but I recommend reading them in order to get the full magnitude of emotions this builds up toward).

The Jokerz gang is finally coming together as a whole to wreck mayhem and madness. The action is solid, and if you like other Batman characters, then the many cameos and even plot-relevant appearances will be a treat. You get to see Terry really grow in this arc, and the 'team' formed at the end is quite interesting.

Check it out! Story is 5 stars and art would be 4, but overall I didn't want the book to finish, so final impression is five stars.
