Here’s the description from HBO Max:

“In the scripted audio original, produced in partnership with Warner Bros. and DC, Gotham City comes to lurid life in the theater of your mind with a sensational pageant of technicolor villainy unlike any other on Earth. Mafioso Penguins. Thieving Catwomen. Terrorizing Riddlers. Killing Jokers. A city where some problems can only be solved by a billionaire in a bat costume.”

Saturday Night Live veteran Dennis McNicholas wrote and directed the podcast. McNicholas is also co-writing a Batman: The Audio Adventures tie-in comic book one-shot with Moynihan, Gardner, Scheer, and more. That 80-page special will hit comic book stores in October with art by Leonardo Romero, Juni Ba, and more.
