How DC Will Publish Batman: One Bad Day In Hardcover For 2023

Bleeding Cool previously noted that DC Comics was to publish their series of one-shot takes on Batman: The Killing Joke, called Batman: One Bad Day, in hardcover as well as the original comic book format. Priced at $17.99 rather than the normal $7.99 with no sign of anything extra at this point.

We noted that Batman: Mister Freeze: One Bad Day was being published in prestige format in November 2022, and then again in May 2023 again, in hardcover, for over twice the price, at $17.99. And it now seems the following books have joined that format.
