Mystery Casebook Special Edition for younger fans is a preview of the upcoming DC Middle-Grade title by writer Sholly Fisch and artist Christopher Uminga.
Kids and families can also celebrate with Batwheels, DC’s first-ever Batman preschool series, which will zoom into Batman Day with a half-hour origin special premiering exclusively first on Cartoonito on HBO Max.
MultiVersus, the free-to-play platform fighter videogame, will celebrate with an in-game event granting a Batman profile icon to players who complete 20 matches as the Caped Crusader. He will also be featured in the game’s three-day preview character rotation.
