I’ve only read the first volume but Rebirth Batman Beyond is my favorite.

@Batwing52 I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read of the Rebirth Batman Beyond series.

Except for the Carlos D’Anda variant to Batman Beyond: Rebirth #1 (seen below). This is one “unique” interpretation of Terry, that’s for sure.


Visually, this series has always scrored big in all its incarnations.

@keylimetyrant I agree. While some BB books are better than others, they’ve always had a consistent razzle-dazzle factor from a visual standpoint.

As for a favorite, when it comes to the BB minis, I recently re-read the book that debuted alongside the show and it captured the aesthetic of what was on Kids WB to a perfect degree. As it should since it was written by Hilary J. Bader, who also worked on the Batman Beyond TV series (and other DCAU productions) at the same time.

I’d pick the 1999 mini-series for my favorite BB mini. Fun stuff and a great tie-in.


Dan Jurgens current run is hands down my favorite. It actually feels like the story is moving forward. Something I think a lot of Beyond books lack, IMO.
