Taking place one week after New York Comic Con, the DC FanDome 2021 event will encompass comics, movies, television, gaming, and merchandise, but here at Newsarama… we're focusing on comics.

While the specific schedule of panels has yet to be announced, DC has revealed the topics it plans on discussing.

Comics at DC FanDome 2021

Ahead of Wonder Woman Day on October 21, DC will be showcasing three Wonder Woman books at DC FanDome 2021 - Wonder Woman Historia, Nubia and the Amazons, and the non-fiction anthology Wonderful Women of the World.

Bridging the gap between comics and gaming, DC will be sharing details about the next stage in the Batman/Fortnite crossover. After the hit limited series Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point, we already know there's a Batman/Fortnite sequel co-written by Scott Snyder.

Other comics scheduled to be discussed are the current 'Fear State' event in the Batman comics, Black Manta, and the revitalized Milestone line.
