If you were a fan of the recently cancelled animated series Beware The Batman, you still have a way to get your fix on the horizon. DC Comics will release Beware The Batman- Volume One as a trade paperback January 27, 2015 (pictured left). It contains all six issues of the comic book for a very fair price of $12.99, but will not include the story featured in DC Nation Magazine #2. I’ve read only the first issue and thought it was pretty good.
With next to no merchandise released for this brand, I encourage others that enjoyed this show to follow my lead and purchase this book. Hopefully DVD and TPB sales will encourage Warner Bros. to release episodes 14-26 on DVD. (The first volume was comprised of episodes 1-13, of which the final two never actually aired on Cartoon Network.) Below is the solicit for the trade paperback.
BEWARE THE BATMAN – VOLUME ONE

But even with the help of allies like Katana and Pennyworth, Batman’s skills will be put to the test against villians such as Professor Pyg, Man-Bat, and Tobias Whale. Collects Beware The Batman #1-6.
