Batman Beyond must have, at some point, seemed like a risky gamble: a cartoon featuring old man Bruce Wayne, training a new Batman, nary a sight of Robin(s), and more questions than answers. Well, over the course of nearly 2 decades, a lot of those questions have been answered, those missing characters popped up, and yet, the property is still going strong. Since 2010, there has been an almost constant stream of “Batman Beyond” comics, and Dan Jurgens has been steering this particular ship since 2015. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at “Batman Beyond” #19, out on April 25th from DC Comics.

“The Long Payback” finale! When Batman was at the mercy of Payback, Melanie Walker—a former member the Royal Flush Gang—swooped in to save his life. Now, with Melanie on the receiving end of Payback’s wrath, Terry will have to return the favor. But can a bruised and battered Batman save the day, or will he need the help of his mysterious new partner?
Thanks again to DC for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
