DC Comics will launch a new six-issue miniseries titled Batman: The Adventures Continue, which will be set in the same world as the acclaimed animated series from the ’90s. The show’s co-creator, Paul Dini, is teaming up with fellow producer Alan Burnett, and artist Ty Templeton to create a new series for DC.
Batman: The Adventures Continue will be a digital-first six-issue mini-series, and its first installments will be released in April 2020. Batman: The Adventures Continue #1, the first full print issue, will collect the first two digital chapters, and hit shelves on 6 May.
“We’d gone from Dick Grayson to Tim Drake, and we had left out Jason,” Dini told EW. “What we’re doing with this is looking at this as a chance to go back and acknowledge that was a part of the animated Batman’s history. For the first time you’re going to see that story and you’re going to see what happened in that relationship. So, it’s our chance not only to do Jason Todd but also the Red Hood.”
Dini confirmed that Jason Todd will in fact be appearing in the new comic series, along with a few other characters including Azrael and Deathstroke, who never made it into the animated series will show up in The Adventures Continue.
