In its animated form, Batman Beyond was clever, expertly animated, accessible to any age group, and in general just well-executed. This comic had a lot to live up to, and unfortunately, it just didn't inherit the successes of its predecessor.

The artwork isn't great. When someone has to rely on costuming and context clues to know who is who, there is immediately something off; there is no consistency, and the facial expressions are lacking. Artwork really could have contributed a lot to this story; in particular, the reveal of Hush's identity could have been instantly recognizable as someone we had already met in the story to make a much more emotional impact, but the reviewer had to rely entirely on accompanying monologue to understand who this character was supposed to be.

The artwork could have been forgiven if the story had been better, but it was sadly lacking. Other than Terry McGinnis, the main characters introduced in the series only make brief cameo appearances. The story focuses instead on trying to impress the reader with some classic Batman trivia, involving lots of somewhat obscure characters in an attempt to revive the original Hush storyline, as well as introducing a completely pointless secondary (tertiary?) love interest. I wish this comic had delved deeper into the established world from the series, instead of trying to repeat Bruce Wayne's history. All of the originality was leeched from the series, leaving a dry corpse of a desperate wannabe Batman adventure. I don't know if the creators were trying to attract Batman readers while at the same time counting on Batman Beyond fans to tune in regardless, but the end result is disappointing for both.

"Batman Beyond" originated as a cartoon debuting in 1999. Taking place decades in the future, it featured an elderly Bruce Wayne, long retired from his role as Batman. He takes the young Terry McGinnis under his wing, grooming him to become the new Dark Knight. Although the show has been off the air for years, it still has its fair share of fans, many of whom think back upon it with considerable amounts of nostalgia. DC recently attempted to capitalize on this by reviving the franchise as a comic. However, the result was a rather mixed bag.

"Hush Beyond" begins shortly after the conclusion of the show, when a serial killer begins targeting people from Bruce Wayne's past. The investigation performed by Bruce and Terry soon brings to light that the killer has taken on the identity of Hush, one of Batman's most personal villains, presumed to have been dead for years. Unfortunately, growing tensions in the relationship between Terry and Bruce threaten to bring the manhunt to a halt.

If one were to look at "Hush Beyond" as a stand alone story, with no connection to any previous work, it is actually decent enough. Although it contains shades of previous Batman storylines, such as the original "Hush", it still manages to be entertaining. The story's twist was interesting, if not rather predictable. Nothing it does is groundbreaking, but the overall familiarity of the plot makes it a rather safe and comfortable read for anyone just looking for a quick Batman mystery.

However, its when you start looking at the book as an attempted revival of the show that it begins to fall flat. Despite supposedly being based upon the cartoon, very few elements from it that people would recognize actually appear.

I'm a big fan of Batman Beyond, owning most of the dvd's, and I loved this futuristic take on the character. This volume collects a new story taking place after the events of the animated series, but prior to the unofficial series finale that took place in the third season of the Justice League animated series.

Fans of the series will enjoy this story, there are numerous nods to continuity from the animated series, the Justice League Unlimited, old Batman allies, and foes, and Terry's friends make appearances. It's a lot of fun, and the story flushes out some more of the backtstory as to what happened to Bruce Wayne in his later years as Batman. We know the fate of Tim Drake in this timeline as it was told in the Return of the Joker animated movie. However, other than a throwaway reference to Nightwing when Barbara Gordon replies in response to Terry's question about all of the heroes ending up bitter, "Look up Nightwing sometime, has he got stories . . . " This story tells us what happened, and it's powerful stuff.

I've seen the mixed reviews here and I have to respectfully disagree. If you were a fan of the animated series, then this is well worth a try, it's a lot of fun, and adds a good amount to the existing Batman Beyond mythos. Enjoy!

I had heard that Batman Beyond: Hush Beyond wasn't very good. The complaints were that that the artwork was bad, the plot stunk, it had nothing to do with the cartoon, etc. I ignored those concerns and read the comic anyways. I have to admit that the criticisms were almost all right. I say almost because the story was actually quite interesting, and many of the problems of the story were solved or justified in the last quarter of the plot. Sadly, however, it ignored much of the established continuity, and that was it's main, but unfortunately not it's only, problem.

The story begins in "Neo-Gotham" where Terry McGinnis, aide to the aged Bruce Wayne and current Batman, lives with his mother and brother. The new Batman seems to have brought the city under some semblance of control and order. This is in sharp contrast to the disaster it had descended into once Bruce retired from being Batman around twenty years earlier.

Into this backdrop, a new villain comes. He is murdering the villains of the elder Batman's "Rogues Gallery", and he has been nicknamed "Hush" after the old villain due to his bandaged-wrapped face, similar to the original Hush's get-up. Even worse for Bruce and Terry, like the original Hush, Tommy Elliot, this new iteration knows all of Bruce's secrets, including that he was Batman.

The race is on now to save as many of the members of Bruce's and Terry's "Rogues Galleries", as well as anyone else this maniac doesn't like, before he kills anymore of them. Worse yet, the new Hush seems to have no problem killing anyone "in his way" no matter how innocent they may be. But the greatest shocker is who this madman really is, and why the shadowy Cadmus organization is involved in this whole affair.
