Originally, comic book retailers were to be encouraged to give away free copies of Sean Gordon Murphy‘s Batman: White Knight #1 for Batman Day on the 15th of September, intended to be a family outreach day in comic stores and bookstores. Along with items such as colouring books, free Batman masks that sort of thing, and usually aimed at all-ages. Which White Knight is not. Some were concerned at the seeming disconnect.
So now DC Comics have added another free-to-the-customer reprint of Dustin Nguyen and Derek Fridolfs‘ Batman: L’il Gotham #1.

First, Robin needs Batman’s help to learn the true meaning of Halloween. Then, on Thanksgiving, Batman and Robin join the families of Gotham City around the table for a holiday feast-and birds of a feather flock together to stage a march against the city…led by The Penguin!
And White Knight #1 will still be available for the older kids – or mums and dads.

Just in time for Batman Day 2018 on September 15, DC reprints the sold-out first issue of the acclaimed miniseries written and illustrated by Sean Murphy!
Set in a world where The Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as “Jack,” sets about trying to right his wrongs. First he plans to reconcile with Harley Quinn, and then he’ll try to save the city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham City’s greatest villain: Batman!
This promotionally priced reprint issue will arrive in stores on Wednesday, September 5 and is intended to be held for Batman Day on Saturday, September 15.
That’s double the free-to-the-customer Batman. And all these masks as well…
