Description

Gotham City is and always has been a crime-free utopia, where the heroes are celebrated through the streets of one of America's best cities. Batman is a universally beloved vigilante clad in white. His sidekick is Selina Kyle, otherwise known as Catbird. Who—or what—has created the Dark Knight's alternate hometown?

This twisted take on Gotham City, written by John Layman (Chew) and illustrated by Jason Fabok (BATMAN: ETERNAL), includes the monumental issue DETECTIVE COMICS #27 that celebrates the 75th anniversary of Batman.

Collects issues #25-29.
