HBO Max’s Batman: The Audio Adventures puts a comedic spin on the Dark Knight mythos. The series follows Batman after he becomes an official deputized member of the Gotham City Police Department. His latest crusade puts him at odds with his longtime frenemy, Catwoman, as he battles familiar rogues like Two-Face, the Joker, and the Riddler.
Batman: The Audio Adventures Special #1 hits comic shops on October 12. You can also view a variant cover for the issue below.
