TCM Offers Up Noir Batman And A 360 Degree Virtual Experience

by Olly MacNamee

Batman In Noir Alley is a free giveaway comic book out this week, but it was originally offered up at SDCC as a tie-in promotion to TMC Noir Alley schedule on Sunday evenings that’s been running since Spring 2017.

The comic includes an all-new story written by Stuart Moore and illustrated by Valentine De Landro as well as a reprint of a story from 2001’s Batman: Gotham Noir from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.

Announced over at the DC website, this comic is only the start. Not only will viewers be able to experience a 360 degree experience ‘for desktop and virtual reality devices‘ plus a ‘seven episode digital feature launching in October.’

Utilizing 360 technology available on desktop and VR devices, TCM will bring fans a new virtual experience and digital exclusive entitled Noir Alley: 360° of Noir. The seven episode online feature will give 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. Fans can search for clues, meet new characters and try to figure out who the culprit is in this new branded digital experience. Launching in October and available on, fans can follow Noir Alley on Facebook and Twitter to learn more. The 360 experience and digital episodes were created, written and designed by Sprocket Creative.

And, while out doesn’t sound like Batman will be appearing in the digital episodes, only the print comic, any fans of noir film may enjoy this immersive experience nonetheless.
