Batman is going to be a busy hero at the end of 2021 and into 2022 as DC Comics announces a plethora of new titles for the Dark Knight. This will include comic books, digital-first releases, graphic novels, collected editions, and one-shots. Not only will the main continuity get a boost in ‘Fear State,’ but Black Label stories such as ‘Batman: Reptilian’ and a continuation of the Tim Burton films in ‘Batman 89.’
