Turner Classic Movies (TCM) is expanding its popular Noir Alley franchise with an assist from DC Entertainment.
The two companies team up this month for a free comic book, Batman in Noir Alley, starring DC’s iconic titular hero and Noir Alley host Eddie Muller. Fans can also dive deeper into the mysterious world of film noir with a new 360º experience for desktop and virtual reality devices and an accompanying seven-episode digital feature, launching soon.
The comic book follows Batman and Muller on the case after the famed Moroccan Raptor goes missing from the Gotham City Museum. Written by Stuart Moore with cover art by Dan Panosian, the comic is available in select comic-book stores nationwide now and will also be available in DC’s booth at NY Comic Con in October.
Utilizing 360º technology available on desktop and VR devices, TCM will bring fans a new virtual experience and digital exclusive entitled Noir Alley: 360º of Noir. The seven-episode online feature offers fans the opportunity to immerse themselves even further into the dark and gritty world of film noir with a new, original story of kidnap and murder. Amateur sleuths can search for clues, meet new characters and try to figure out who the culprit is in this branded-digital experience.
Launching later this month and available on tcm.com/noiralley, fans can follow Noir Alley on Facebook and Twitter to learn more. For more information and a list of stores where you can pick-up Batman in Noir Alley, visit TCM.com/noiralley and myt.cm/BatmanStoreList.
