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.

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?!

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.
