DC and Webtoon, who announced a partnership last month, have launched their first webcomic just in time for Batman Day — Batman: Wayne Family Adventures.
The new comic, which you can read right here, focuses on Batman’s role as a father to all of his vigilante children. Three episodes went live today and feature Duke Thomas, aka The Signal, moving into the Wayne mansion; a family dinner featuring all the various Robins; and a Barbara Gordon-centric episode that has her bonding with her dad.
The comic is by the creative team of writer CRC Payne, lead artist StarBite, storyboard artist Maria Li, background artist Lan Ma, letterer Kielamel Sibal, and colorists C.M. Cameron, Camille Cruz and Jean Kim.
Here’s the description from Webtoon: Batman needs a break, but with new vigilante Duke Thomas moving into Wayne Manor and an endless supply of adopted, fostered, and biological vigilante children to manage, Bruce Wayne is going to have his hands full. Being a father can’t be harder than being Batman, right?
“Webtoon is really relishing the opportunity to explore the DC Universe in novel new ways,” said David Lee, head of content at Webtoon Entertainment, U.S., in a press release “Batman: Wayne Family Adventures is a great example of what we can do when we pair a world class team of creators with a leading entertainment company like DC.”
The new comic arrives just as DC announces more of their plans for Batman Day on Sept. 18. In addition to the launch of the new webcomic, DC also announced a partnership with FaZe Clan, the competitive video game team, that includes the release of a FaZe Clan/Batman comic on Sept. 24 and all sorts of merch. They also plan to launch a Batman audio podcast on HBO Max on Sept. 18 featuring Jeffrey Wright, Rosario Dawson, Jason Sudeikis and John Leguizamo.
