Description

As evil spreads across Gotham City, Batman's allies, including Red Robin,
Batwing, Robin, Batgirl, the Birds of Prey, Nightwing, and even Catwoman find
themselves in a battle coming from all sides. The Court of Owls have shown their
hand, and it's up to the collective effort of these heroes, some more unlikely
than others, to end the corruption and violence. This epic springs from the pen of Scott Snyder, New York Times
bestselling author of Batman: Court of Owls, Batman: The Black
Mirror, and American Vampire, as well as creators Judd Winick, David
Finch, Peter J. Tomasi, Pat Gleason, Tony Daniel, Scott Lobdell, Duane
Swierczynski, JH Williams III, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Justin Gray!

Review quote

PRAISE FOR DC COMICS--THE NEW 52 BATMAN TITLES: "A+. The hero's got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new to the Dark Knight."--USA Today "[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."--Entertainment Weekly "Brilliant.... This is a modernization of Silver Age optimism replacing camp with today's dialogue expectations of introspection and smart wit.... Pure comic gold."--Ain't It Cool News PRAISE FOR DC COMICS" "THE NEW 52 BATMAN TITLES: "A+.
