Ah, you hear that beautiful racket? That’s the music of Gotham City-the largest city in the world, the big gargoyle, the treasure of the night-anyone who calls it a crime-infested hellhole is dead wrong. No way hell has such great pierogies. So join us here (hear?) as we bring you the stories behind the stories behind the hit HBO Max scripted original podcast with this sensational prequel one-shot, written by the very creators and talent who lent their voices to the show. And unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that after years of rumors we find out not only is the Batman real, not only is he one of the good guys, turns out, he’s gonna be a cop!

With special appearances by King Scimitar, Stoveplate Sullivan, Billy Wristwatch, and others directly from the podcast, this oversize special brings you deeper into the mysteries behind Batman: The Audio Adventures!

    This is probably the most unusual giant-sized special out of DC yet, a tie-in to the podcast featuring Jeffrey Wright as the voice of Batman.

    In general, every story in this collection has a similar vibe as it explores Gotham with kooky energy that revels in the weird characters and their even weirder personalities. Inspired by radio plays, Batman: The Audio Adventures Special is a unique approach that’s fun and fancy-free.
