Just announced: BTAS Volume 4 comes out on December 6. Once art is available, I will post it.

And there's a rumor of a Batman Beyond box next year.

And this will be The New Adventures (redesigned characters, Tim as Robin, Dick as Nightwing, etc.)?

will this have all 24 episodes?

There should be some mention of Gotham Knights or something on the cover since it is like a new series for the same creators. And because it is not directly continued from the last box set...i.e. Tim as Robin, Nightwing......but I'm very very happy to see it on DVD and now all we got to wait for is Justice League DVDs to come out to complete my Timm/Dini Batman collection.

Is there going to be a Justice League DVD box set? I'd be very unhappy if they weren't in the making.

Under volume four, it says "from the new Batman Adventures."

We don't seem to be getting a region 2 release over here as of yet which is very disappointing to say the least. I love the animated series and would be delighted to be able to own all of the episodes on DVD.

I suppose I just have to wait. cry

The New Adventures doesn't tend to do it for me. I haven't seen that many eps, but from what I did see... embarassed

Sidekick central with a definite decline in maturity and overall intelligence. Why can't Batman be a loner consistently? Hell, on this redefined show he's now just the opposite consistently.

I do tend to believe that anytime Batgirl shows up things take a downturn for Bats. No offense, Emma. It opens up the floodgates and decentralizes any idea of darkness and depression as far as the title character and the motivation that therefore created Batman in the first place -- you drain this away and you first end up in the realm of the many times thoughtless superhero confrontation sub-genre, eventually further leading down the road to total self-aware camp.

Then, of course, Batman at some point is "purified" and "brought back to his roots", becoming the loner he was before all these sidekicks showed up and drained away or replaced the ideas at the base of the character's (previous) existence. The question is, if this can be seen as a problem with an obvious remedy how is it that we always arrive at this same problematic point only to blow it up and start over with what was moved away from and/or betrayed, leading to that same later point at all? Spit. Rinse. Repeat.

All this is valid to the character, of course, because it has become so inherent through the material as traced by history. Changing and circling back around to what he started as -- happens over and over again, and every step in that process is as much a part of Batman as any other -- thus making the totality of the cycle valid in or as its totality, as well as the sweeping idea of his being a character that is a rorscharch test for the specific subject/artist/writer/reader/etc. rather than a character that has one definitive vision to work from.

I do, however, prefer certain phases over others most definitely. And The New Adventures falls into the wrong category from what I've witnessed.

None taken, Will. angry

In all seriousness though I'm somewhat in agreement with you here. The whole extended Bat-family (save for maybe Nightwing and Robin) does detract from the darkness of Batman. I'm not talking just about the new adventures here, I'm talking about all medium including the comic books.

Batman's supporting cast, within his own titles at least, needs to be stripped back down to the bare minimum.

Might I suggest a mass cull? cheesy

Good idea, it would consist of:

Huntress
Hush (just kill him goddammit and save us all this muddled storytelling and horrible writing)
Jade
Cable
Rob Liefeld
Krypto
Gwen Stacys bastard children
Dr. Doom (I don't know why so many people are on his nuts, I effing HATE this lame-ass.)

Not a fan of The New Adventures,eh? Perhaps one of these other versions of animated Batman are to your liking:

Coming September 20:
