Description

Tying into his other blockbuster stories of 2008 Final Crisis and Batman: The Ressurection of Ra's Al Ghul, the legendary Grant Morrison confronts readers with the unthinkable...the death of The Dark Knight.

The troubled life of Bruce Wayne seems to spin out of control when his releationship with the mysterious Jezebel Jet deepens. Soon Bruce Wayne drops out completely, having seemingly become the victim of mental illness and abandoning his Batman identity for a life on the streets of Gotham City. Capitalizing on the fall of their greatest foe, the Club of Villains begin a crime spree through the streets of Gotham that threatens to bring the city to its knees.

This volume collects Batman #676-683 and DC Universe #0.



About the Author
Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers including JLA, BATMAN and "New X-Men" as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.

In his secret identity, Morrison is a counterculture spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of the "New York Times" best-seller "Supergods," a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland. Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the 8th grade, and he hasn t looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico s "The Elementals," he has contributed work to Marvel s "X-Force" and Image s "Spawn: Bloodfeud" as well as writing and illustrating his creator-owned titles "Silke," "The Tenth," "Humankind," "Adrenalynn" and "F5" the last two of which led him, for a time, into the alternate reality known as Hollywood.

After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on DC s TEEN TITANS, Daniel went on to draw the final three issues of FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE before landing his dream job pencilling the Dark Knight s adventures in BATMAN. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy.
