When a series of seemingly unconnected events brings Batman close to killing a man for the first time, Bruce Wayne must embark on a journey of self-discovery which also reveals shocking secrets about Batman's enemies and allies alike.
From a secret chamber in Arkham Asylum to a hidden world below our own, this weird, wild journey will answer once and for all the question, Can a Batman who kills still be Batman?
BATMAN: ODYSSEY, a singular and epic Batman tale, collects BATMAN: ODYSSEY #1-6 (VOL. 1) and #1-7 (VOL. 2).
Born on June 15, 1941 in New York City, Neal Adams joined DC Comics in 1965, where he quickly became a top cover artist. His first interior work was done for DC's war titles, but it was his celebrated run on DEAD-MAN that established his reputation as a creative force. That reputation was cemented in the early 1970s with a series of collaborations between Adams, writer Dennis O'Neil and inker Dick Giordano starring Batman, Green Lantern and Green Arrow. These stories broke new ground for mainstream comics and attracted major (and overwhelmingly positive) national media attention to the art form.
"It's completely sincere and utterly wonderful. BATMAN: ODYSSEY looks and reads like nothing else on the shelf."—Comic Book Resources
"With each page, Adams proves that, artistically speaking, he's not missed a beat. These pages are the work of a man who has mastered the craft, and isn't afraid to show it."—Newsarama
