Last week was a fairly big one for Batman fans. Not only was the Internet sent reeling from the reveal of RBattz in costume, but on the comic book side of things, Batfans got another moment to squeal in excitement. Fans of the legendary Batman: The Animated Series were gifted with the news that there would a limited mini-series set in the DC Animated Universe. The new mini-series is entitled Batman: The Adventure Continues, will be written by the Paul Dini and Alan Burnett and illustrated by Ty Templeton. In the wake of such incredible news, sculptor Paul Harding unveiled new Batman: The Adventure Continues figures.
Buried by the insane hype, Harding tweeted a photo featuring what looked liked finished renderings of two new figures from the new limited series.
Take a look at the Tweet below:

Batman Who Laughs in the DCAU!
I’m not going to bury the lead. We have ourselves a Batman Who Laughs in the style of the DCAU. It’s a really wise decision to add him to that universe. He might be a little too creepy and violent for it, but hey, most of us who love this series are all adults now, right? Plus, comic books don’t have to surrender to the authority that dictated what could and couldn’t be shown on network TV in the early ’90s. Overall, the figure looks pretty incredible. My only gripe is that I feel like his teeth should more blunt, similar to Joker’s teeth in the DCAU. Either way, I think you’ll find that figure hiding somewhere in my room plotting some sort of diabolical scheme.
Next to it, we have a pretty wonderful looking Vampire Batman figure. Elongated arms and a fantastic looking fluid cape make this figure something worth owning as well. This also indicates that we’re getting some sort of storyline involving a vampire. Possibly something that pits Robin and Batgirl against a vampire Batman.
Aside from that, no release date has been announced. Harding shared the Batman: The Adventure Continues figures informing us that they’ll be out by October 2020. Pretty awesome Halloween gift.
