DC Comics all-ages comic book library expands with Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries, a series of original team-up stories launching with digital chapters on Saturday, March 27! This new series teams up the Dark Knight with Scooby-Doo and the sleuths of Mystery, Inc. (Shaggy, Velma, Daphne, and Fred) for a series of 24 digital chapters—to be collected in 12 print issues available at your Local Comic Shop—fitting the Saturday-morning cartoon position in your family-friendly weekend entertainment.
In the kick-off story by Ivan Cohen and Dario Brizuela—an adventure when Batman discovers his original purple gloves have gone missing—Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo travel back in time to Batman’s Year One era to solve the case! Will this time-traveling heist have a happy ending? Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #1, “Glove Story,” written by Ivan Cohen with art and cover by Dario Brizuela, begins with the first of two DC Digital First chapters on March 27, followed by a print issue collecting the same story on April 13.
And to continue the Scooby-Doo team-up tradition established in over a hundred chapters of Scooby-Doo Team-Up, in the second big Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries story, writer Sholly Fisch and artist Randy Elliott have Scooby-Doo and Batman team up to solve the mystery of a ghost…who’s haunting the Batcave! Even if the ghost turns out to be a fake, that still doesn’t solve the real mystery: How did someone get into the Batcave to stage the phony phantom—and does that mean Batman’s enemies have cracked the secret of his true identity?! Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2, “Going Bats,” written by Sholly Fisch with art and cover by Randy Elliott, arrives in print on May 11 after digital chapters beginning on April 24.
