Two pop culture forces collide in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, a six-issue series written by Christos Gage and illustrated by Reilly Brown, with concept and story consultation from chief creative officer of Epic Games, Donald Mustard. 

 

The series starts next Tuesday, April 20, and continues with twice-monthly installments in May and June—issue #2 on May 4, #3 on May 18, #4 on June 1, and #5 on June 15—before concluding July 6 with Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #6. Each issue has a main cover by the amazing Mikel Janín; a variant cover from superstar artists including Jim Lee, Amanda Conner, Art Adams and Dan Mora; and a premium variant cover illustrated by Donald Mustard.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will launch day-and-date in comic book shops and on DC UNIVERSE INFINITE, and will be available at release in North America, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Brazil, Spain and the Czech Republic, with plans to release the full series in Japan, Korea and France later this fall.

 

That’s not all. Each print issue of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point will include a redeemable code for bonus DC-themed Fortnite digital items inspired by the events in the comic, starting with the new Rebirth Harley Quinn Outfit! Digital issues of Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point downloaded from DC UNIVERSE INFINITE (U.S. only) will also include these bonus digital codes. As a bonus item, fans who redeem all six codes will unlock a new Armored Batman Zero Outfit.

 

But while you know Batman (if you’re reading this, we’re presuming that’s a safe bet) you may not yet know Fortnite. We’ve got you covered—along with all the details on how to redeem your DC-themed Fortnite digital items thanks to a FAQ from our friends at Fortnite.

Fortnite is a Pretty Big Deal

 

Fortnite is a completely free cross-platform game where players fight to be the last one standing in Battle Royale, join forces to make their own Creative games, or catch a live show with their friends at Party Royale. With more than 350 million accounts globally and an enthusiastic fanbase, players can jump into the action on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, Android, PC and Mac.

 

But What’s Batman Doing Here?

 

He’s trying to figure that out himself. As Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #1 starts, a mysterious crack appears in the Gotham City sky, threatening reality itself. Batman—along with some other familiar DC faces—is pulled into it, with the Dark Knight waking up in the unfamiliar world of Fortnite with no memory and no choice other than to fight his way out.

Who’s the Fish Guy?

 

That’s Fishstick, one of the many visually distinctive and fan-favorite Fortnite characters to appear in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point.

 

This Isn’t the First DC/Fortnite Collaboration

 

While Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point is the first comic book collaboration between DC and Fortnite, there’s a history here, as the game has previously offered players in-game outfits of DC characters including Batman, Aquaman, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, the Joker and more.
