Today, WarnerMedia companies Rooster Teeth, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC announced “Detective Comics #27 by Rooster Teeth” - an exclusive capsule collection that takes the first appearance of Batman from 1939 and imagines it in a nostalgic and fashion-forward clothing line. “Detective Comics #27 by Rooster Teeth” is the first-ever clothing line to license DC’s Detective Comics #27 artwork in its entirety. The collection is the first to come from a larger partnership between the two divisions that will pull iconic Warner Bros. characters and themes for creative mash-ups with Rooster Teeth brands. “Detective Comics #27” will launch with four graphic tees, a printed pocket tee, two hoodies (one zip-up and one pullover), a five-panel hat with printed lining, a premium duffel bag, and an enamel pin on Batman Day on September 21 at https://store.roosterteeth.com.
DC’s Detective Comics #27 tells the origin story of the Dark Knight, and more than eight decades later remains one of the most highly coveted comics. Batman reigns as the #1 Super Hero in the world and continues to be a character at the forefront of graphic storytelling. The classic artwork is just as popular today, and a fan-favorite worldwide.
This fall, Rooster Teeth will follow up with an exclusive “Achieve x Batman” line, taking the fresh gaming aesthetic of “Achieve” and infusing it with some of the darker elements of the Caped Crusader.
“Through this whole integration into WarnerMedia, it’s been surreal to become a lot closer to the brands we’ve always been huge fans of,” said Geoff Ramsey, co-founder of Rooster Teeth and founder of Achievement Hunter. “Now actually getting to work with Warner Bros. and DC on these collaborations, we’ve been like kids in a candy store. Comic books, video games and cartoons are our inspirations as content creators, and it’s humbling to get to bring our style and aesthetic to these iconic designs and make cool stuff we want to wear.”
“We’re excited to partner with Rooster Teeth to launch fresh new collaborations featuring some of our most iconic characters,” said Maryellen Zarakas, senior vice president, franchise management and marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “The Batman line shows the richness of the brand’s history through high-quality on-trend fashion designs that we believe will be incredibly appealing to both Rooster Teeth and Batman fans alike.”
