DC Blog The Source announced that this February two new weekly series will debut as digital comics first with Batman Beyond and Justice League Beyond.
The issues will then be collected in a monthly 48 page Batman Beyond Unlimted print edition.
Here’s the info:
Beginning in February 2012, DC Comics will be launching BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED, a monthly print periodical which will collect chapters from various digital-first series. Releasing weekly, JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND and BATMAN BEYOND will come out as individual chapters prior to (and in conjunction with) the collected, 48-page monthly BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED print edition.
JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND is from the creative team of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs, adding Batman (Terry McGinnis) to the team of superheroes to combat a Neo Goath-related enemy. And in BATMAN BEYOND, from Adam Beecham and Norm Breyfogle, McGinnis and Bruce Wayne face an onslaught of Jokerz – and the return of an old foe.
DC Entertainment has previously released digital-first series including BEYOND THE FRINGE, as well as the limited run of BATMAN: ARKHAM UNLEASHED and BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, which was recently collected in a hardcover release last month. BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED marks the first time that DC Entertainment is launching an ongoing series digitally ahead of its planned monthly print release.
