‘Beyond’ DC Digital: New Creators and Titles Including Sean Murphy, Kyle Higgins, Annie Wu and ‘Batgirl Beyond’
By Andy Khouri
The “Beyond” titles of DC Comics’ acclaimed digital-first series are getting something of a software update this summer in the form of new creative teams and titles, some of which are particularly good news for longtime fans of the universe which first debuted with the Batman Beyond animated series all the way back in 1999. The flagship title Batman Beyond will be taken over by writer Kyle Higgins (Nightwing) and artist Thony Silas (Venom) with covers by the acclaimed Punk Rock Jesus creator Sean Murphy. Avengers Academy writer Christos Gage and Superboy artist Iban Coello will handle Justice League Beyond. Perhaps most auspiciously, longtime Batman editor and former Batgirl co-writer Scott Peterson will team up with one of our favorite illustrators, Annie Wu, for a brand new series and character: Batgirl Beyond.
