The centerpiece of BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, PART 1 revolves around the triumvirate of crimefighters – Batman/Bruce Wayne, Police Captain James Gordon, and District Attorney Harvey Dent – as they try to solve the mystery of the Holiday Killer.

Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, PART 1 begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen – Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent – in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.

Via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (to BOF), here are a few new images depicting this trio — and some of their closest allies.

 

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, PART 1 will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.
