The (now) eight-issue series, which features new stories from the world of Batman: The Animated Series, debuts new issues digitally before print editions are made available one-two months later. The content in Batman: The Adventures Continue #8, the print version, will be released as digital-first Batman: The Adventures Continue issues #15 – 17 later in 2020.

It’s the holidays in Gotham City, and Harley and Ivy have a wonderful idea: they want to hold a party for all the city’s villains to commemorate the season! But one evildoer wasn’t invited and has sent a devious present to the festivities to make some mischief. Can Batman intercept the package and save the villains, or is it the final night for these fiendish foes?!

ON SALE 1/5/21
$4.99 US | 30 STORY PAGES
32 PAGES | 8 OF 8 | FC | DC

Please note that while DC Comics lists Batman: The Adventures Continue #8 as issue “8 of 8,” implying this is the final issue, the solicitation does not actually state this is the last issue of the series. Batman: The Adventures Continue #7 was previously announced by the publisher as the final issue of the series, the issue itself an extension from the series’ original six-issue plan.

Batman: The Adventures Continue will also contain 30 pages of story content, meaning it will first appear as digital-first Batman: The Adventures Continue issues #15 – 17. Release dates for those digital issues, slated for late 2020, will be announced soon. Batman: The Adventures Continue #8 hits comic shops on January 5, 2021.
