The list of new Batman comic books is growing every day, between the comic books, digital-first releases, original graphic novels, and collected editions.

The ‘Infinite Frontier’ era is here, with a tight-knight Bat-family of titles returning – spearheaded by James Tynion IV and Jorge Jimenez on the main Batman title, and writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Dan Mora are taking over the ongoing Detective Comics title. Tynion, as the de facto head writer of DC’s Bat-family of titles, recently gave us a rundown of the Bat-plans for 2021.

Outside the main push of those titles is two more Dark Knight titles on the horizon – Garth Ennis and Liam Sharp’s Batman: Reptilian, Tom Taylor and Andy Kubert’s Batman: The Detective limited series, and the third volume of Batman: Earth One by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

On the horizon (but as yet undated) are also Sean Gordon Murphy’s third Batman: White Knight limited series and Marc Silvestri’s Batman/Joker: Deadly Duo.

And that’s not to mention the numerous collections coming out at almost a weekly clip, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven’t been available for years.

For more on all of DC’s offerings, check out its monthly schedule with the company’s various monthly solicitations: 

Here’s a week-by-week rundown of upcoming Batman comics, with links for ordering the issues when available:
