BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 1: MYTHOLOGY
Alfred Pennyworth…attacked at Wayne manor! Who’s hunting those closest to Batman? Commissioner Gordon calls in the Dark Knight Detective when there’s a murder at the Gotham City Aquarium-staged to look exactly like Thomas and Martha Wayne’s crime scene, right down to the playbill and pearls. How does this bizarre homicide tie into the shadowy monster that attacks Dr. Leslie Thompkins? This creature looks to wage a war on Batman-and it’s using Joker gas to do it! Collects Detective Comics #994-999.
The Joker has been murdered. His killer is a mystery. Batman is the World’s Greatest Detective. But what happens when the person he is searching for is the man staring back at him in the mirror?
With no memory of the events of the previous night, Batman is going to need some help. So who better to set him straight than John Constantine? The problem with that is as much as John loves a good mystery, he loves messing with people’s heads even more. So with John’s “help,” the pair will delve into the sordid underbelly of Gotham as they race toward the mind-blowing truth of who murdered The Joker.
Batman: Damned is a visceral thrill-ride and supernatural horror story told by two of comics’ greatest modern creators, Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo.
The DC Black Label imprint features classic DC characters in compelling, standalone stories written and illustrated by world-class authors and artists.
