THE BATMAN STRIKES, a monthly comic book based on the new TV cartoon, THE BATMAN ended its successful run last year with issue #50. The DC Comic was pencilled by Chris Jones and inked by Terry Beatty. This ended an eleven year run on various "animated-style" Batman books for Terry -- beginning with BATMAN AND ROBIN ADVENTURES #18. The covers for Terry's first and last books of that run are shown below.
