‘Batman: Fortress’ is about Batman, Superman, Gotham City, the Fortress of Solitude, alien invasions, and more.

Press Release

DC Comics has announced a new eight-part Batman series by Gary Whitta and Darick Robertson called Batman: Fortress. The series will launch its first issue in comic book shops on May 24th.

“This has been my first opportunity to collaborate with my Oliver co-creator Gary Whitta for DC, on a character that is one of my all-time favorites to draw,” says Robertson. “I’m having the best time creating the art for this series and with my pal and original The Boys editor, Ben Abernathy at the helm, it’s been a dream project, with a lot of fun twists and surprises ahead for the readers!”

What’s Batman: Fortress about?

When an unknown alien ship enters Earth’s atmosphere, disrupting global power and communications and plunging the planet into chaos, the world is left wondering…where is Superman when he is needed most? In the mysterious absence of the Last Son of Krypton, Batman must rally the rest of the Justice League to counter the alien threat…but first, he must quell a crime wave on the blacked-out streets of Gotham! Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) and Darick Robertson (The Boys) join forces to turn everything you think you know about Superman upside down in DC’s new comic book mini-series Batman: Fortress launching this May!

“It’s always been my dream to write a truly epic Batman story, one that draws inspiration from some dark and unexpected corners of the DC universe,” says Whitta. “The opportunity to once again collaborate with my friend Darick Robertson makes this all the sweeter. I hope that together we’ve done justice to some of DC’s most iconic characters, while at the same time reinventing everything you thought you knew about them…”
