Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne explores a budding romance with television journalist Charlotte Rivers, who's visiting Gotham City to cover the gruesome slayings–while also trying to uncover Bruce's own mystery. But time is running out as both Commissioner Gordon and Batman work to uncover the true identity of this new serial killer.

About the Author

Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the eighth grade, and he hasn't looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico's "The Elementals," he has contributed to Marvel's "X-Force" and Image's "Spawn: Bloodfeud" as well as writing and illustrating his own titles "Silke, The Tenth" and "F5," which led him into work in Hollywood. After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on "Teen Titans," Daniel went on to draw "The Flash" before landing his dream job pencilling "Batman." The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy.
