This spring, the World’s Greatest Detective is teaming-up with the Mystery Incoporated gang (again!) in Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries by Ivan Cohen, Dario Brizuela, Sholly Fisch, and Randy Elliot. The DC Comics series will be DC Digital First, so you’ll be able to purchase and read a digital copy of the comics a few weeks before you can purchase a physical version from your local comic shop.

In Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #1, “Glove Story” by Cohen and Brizuela, Batman discovers that his original purple gloves have gone missing. In the subsequent adventure, Batman is joined by Velma, Shaggy, and Scooby-Doo in a time-traveling adventure that has them visiting Bats’ Year One! The comic will be available digitally first (on Saturday, March 27th, 2021). Then, you’ll be able to pick up a physical copy from your LCS on Tuesday, April 13th, 2021.

And in Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2, “Going Bats” by Fisch and Elliot, Batman enlists Scooby-Doo’s help to solve the mystery of who might be haunting the Batcave… And if it isn’t a real ghost, how did the “phantom” under the mask know that Batman’s true identity is Bruce Wayne? He would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling super villains! This story will be available digitally on Saturday, April 24th, 2021, arriving in print at your LCS on Tuesday, May 11th, 2021.

Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries has 24 digital chapters planned, which will be collected into 12 physical issues, and if you’d like to read the press release from DC, it’s included below the article.

Will you be piling into the Mystery Machine to head down to your local comic shop to pick up an issue of Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries? Are you going to borrow an electronic tablet from Velma’s girlfriend Hot Dog Water so that you can read the series when it’s released digitally? Have you already procured your Scooby Snacks so you’ll have something to munch on whilst you read? Let The Beat know in the comment section!
