Following the first series of Fortnite x Batman comics released earlier this year, a brand-new ‘Batman/Fortnite: Foundation’ comic has been announced.

The new comic will follow the story of The Foundation after last being seen at the end of the Chapter 2, Season 8 Story Trailer. “You may remember The Foundation at the bottom of the ocean, activating after a long slumber. But this ocean was not the Island’s. The Foundation has found himself in Gotham Harbor, and in Gotham he detects energy from the Zero Point.”

The ‘Batman/Fortnite: Foundation’ comic will be available to purchase in stores from October 26, 2021, with each purchase providing a redeemable code for the new ‘The Batman Who Laughs’ Outfit.
