Batman Beyond: Neo-Gothic


Max Dunbar Regular

Release: Jul 25, 2023

Terry McGinnis defeated the evil A.I. controlling Neo-Gotham and asserted himself as the one true Batman, but his next battle will bring him to the remains of Old Gotham. Children are going missing and being swallowed by the city’s old bones. Batman Beyond will have to go underground, led by a mysterious splicer named Kyle the Catboi, to find the children and confront the city’s buried sins. What happened to the green of the city? What happened to magic? And what villains never left old Gotham? All these questions will be answered by the red-hot creative team of Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing (Batman – One Bad Day: Clayface, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty) and Max Dunbar (Batman: Urban Legends).

Jon Says:

I don’t know, I think I’m done with Batman Beyond comics. I really haven’t liked any of the iterations of it that are more in line with the main DC continuity as I did the volumes that were set more in the DCAU continuity. I guess we’ll see how it goes.

Release: Jul 19, 2023

If you had one wish…what would you wish for? What if everyone else on the planet had one wish too? That’s EIGHT BILLION GENIES. Eight seconds after magical genies grant every person on earth one wish, the world is transformed forever…and that’s just the beginning! From #1 New York Times-bestselling author CHARLES SOULE (UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY, Light of the Jedi) and superstar artist RYAN BROWNE (CURSE WORDS, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS) comes the most thought-provoking, hilarious, terrifying, and emotional ride of the year. Collects EIGHT BILLION GENIES #1-8

Jon Says:

There was a lot of buzz around this when it first hit the stands, but I decided to hold off and buy it in a collected edition. Which is what I did.

Also, I got a signed bookplate with my purchase.

Up next is the Knight Terrors section. The main thing of note is that for some reason Knight Terrors: Superman wasn’t in my stack last week and I didn’t notice until I got home, so I picked it up this week.

Knight Terrors


THE DEBUT OF INSOMNIA’S ARMY, THE SLEEPLESS KNIGHTS! Oh dang–I gotta do another one of these this month? Batman and I are joined by…Wesley Dodds, the Sandman?! What the heck? I thought I was the only dead person allowed in this story. I guess not! We uncover one of Wesley’s oldest cases, which haunted him until the day he died–and it points us in the direction of the Nightmare Stone. But Insomnia has unleashed his own army to hunt us down…the Sleepless Knights. And this issue is their first appearance, kids! Get scared!

Jon Says:

I’ve been really enjoying this series, and I’m glad it’s going to continue, but I’m annoyed that it’s getting a new #1 (along with a title change, adding back the 1990s’ “Sensational”).

The pathological need to have a series get a new #1 is just bizarre, especially when a book isn’t getting a new creative team or anything like that.
