Media Release -- On September 20 retailers will receive the free new, promotional comic BATMAN IN NOIR ALLEY from Turner Classic Movies and DC!

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) has taken up permanent residence in the shadowy world of film noir with Noir Alley, a new programming franchise hosted by Eddie Muller, founder and president of the Film Noir Foundation. Known to classic film fans as "The Czar of Noir," Muller explores the genre from every angle as he introduces a different noir classic each week. In anticipation of this launch, TCM has joined forces with DC to create a brand new BATMAN adventure that features the Dark Knight teaming up with the Czar of Noir on a thrilling case that also leads into a preview of DC's classic story, "Batman: Gotham Noir." Noir Alley airs Sundays at 10 a.m. (ET).

BATMAN IN NOIR ALLEY features a new 14-page story written by Stuart Moore with art by Valentine De Landro and a cover by Dan Panosian. This issue also features a 14-page excerpt from BATMAN: GOTHAM NOIR written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips.
