DC Celebrates Batman Day With New Comic Releases

Later this month, Batman Day will celebrate the cultural impact of DC’s flagship hero. And fans also have plenty of new printed adventures to look forward to as well. DC has announced several new stories hitting comic shops and digital platforms in honor of the Dark Knight’s upcoming celebration.

Kicking off this new slate of titles is Batman: The World. Originally announced back in May, this hardcover anthology collection assembles several international creative teams to tell new interconnected tales that show Bruce Wayne turning his war on crime into a global effort. Leading the way are Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo, who open the book with a story that shows Bruce reflecting on his career as Gotham’s protector. Fans can check it out for themselves on September 14. You can also view covers for the international editions of the book in the gallery below.

The celebrations will continue with DC’s ongoing Batman: Fear State event, which launches this month. The company is also releasing a “special reprint” of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1. Additionally, gamers can anticipate new Batman-themed collaborations between DC and FaZe Clan, whose members will appear as superheroes in their own special that bows on September 24. DC will also release a new Batman Day edition of Batman Knightwatch Bat-Tech’s first issue, which serves as a companion to the recently-released Bat-Tech app.

WebToon is also getting in on the fun with Batman: Wayne Family Adventures, its first-ever webcomic set in the DC Universe. The series picks up with Duke Thomas (a.k.a. The Signal) moving into an already crowded Wayne Manor, joining many of the Caped Crusader’s other “adopted, fostered, and biological vigilante children.” Readers can already view the first installment here.

Batman Day will officially take place on September 18.
