Batman Beyond Neo Year #3





Batman Beyond Neo Year #3 


I continue my exploration of comic books and Batman Beyond Neo Year with Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. Thankfully I had the money to purchase this comic book. It is neat that we were able to get into comic book reviews around the same time as when this one started. Batman Beyond has always been a franchise that interested me. In some ways I regret getting rid of all of those comic books I had as a kid and teenager. The market for the comic book industry tanked. I should have thought of the long game. At the time I was moving from place to place and they were heavy to keep moving. There will be spoilers in this review.

Batman Beyond Neo Year #3 reiterates the belief that Neo Gotham is alive. Barbara Gordon retires in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. The CEO of Wayne-Powers Dominic Lumos is throwing her a party. Lumos announces that Wayne-Powers will be taking over Police Department. The mayor is also missing in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. What happened to him? Terry decides to go and find out. Sadly he winds up walking right into a trap while doing his investigating. McGinnis does not think he has the detective skills Bruce Wayne had. In some regards he is probably right.

The artwork is nice in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. We meet Beam Boonma who is a police officer. She might be one of the few good cops. Terry tries to get to know her but she is all gruff, and a bit abusive. She may become an ally down the road. Time will tell. Terry also mentioned in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3 that he cannot show his face or Batman's face anywhere. I do not understand what happened that made Terry McGinnis a wanted man. Maybe that will be addressed in future issues of Batman Beyond Neo Year. Ads are included in the middle of this comic book, and at the end.

There are twenty-two pages of content for families that read Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. Some of the lessons within Batman Beyond Neo Year #3 are distrust people in power, women are better than men, men are weak, men are dumb, corruption is in corporations, government is not to be trusted, do it yourself, and more. The twist ending in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3 will have readers coming back for more. I feel like the story barely progressed in Batman Beyond Neo Year #3. We see one leave (maybe) and another come into frame.

This whole city being alive thing is just odd to me still. I feel like that is a false belief that is really being drummed into the readers minds. It is really a paranoid delusion. Maybe that is what the writer is going for. Maybe he wants to make Terry McGinnis look pretty unhinged. His writings to Bruce are very controlled so ultimately it does not really fit the character. I plan on continuing to read this comic series for at least a bit longer. I will see where they are going with it.
