In January 2017, Lucky introduced the Black Bat as a guest-star in its flagship title, Beetle Girl. This character refers to himself only as The Bat, however.
Lucky Comics hopped on the Free Comic Book Day wagon in 2017. Their offering for that day sported the following cover by Josh Holley.
The Bat also found himself chased by Dixie Squad in the second issue of that team's book.
In October 2017, Lucky launched a prose short story series called Pulp Legends. The first issue featured The Black Bat.
