Kevin Conroy Reads New Batman Comics Live On Instagram

Kevin Conroy is best known as the voice of Bruce Wayne and The Batman in Batman: The Animated Series. With the many iterations that followed, he has played Batman more times than any other actor, including in the recent DC TV Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover. Tomorrow on DC Comics' Instagram feed, he will be reading the new Batman comic book published last week, Batman: The Adventures Continue #1. It is published digitally by DC, written by Batman Animated Series co-creators Alan Burnett and Paul Dini, drawn by Ty Templeton, and coloured by Monica Kubina.

At 10am PT/1pm ET/6pm BST Kevin Conroy will dramatically read a chapter from Batman: The Adventures Continue. It's a new comic book series created in the fashion of the Batman Adventures comic and Batman: The Animated Series from the nineties. Fans are encouraged to download a copy before Kevin Conroy's reading occurs. Though you don't have to. Chapter two will be published digitally in a week, Wednesday, April 15th. The print edition was originally intended to be published in the first week of May, but that future is unclear right now.
