Eisner Award winner Tom King’s explosive Batman run continues as he plunges the Dark Knight’s world further into a spiral of madness from which he may never return.
UNSURE WHAT IS DREAM AND WHAT IS REALITY…THE DARK KNIGHT MUST FACE HIS GREATEST FEARS!
What happens to the World’s Greatest Detective when everything stops making sense?
Enemies are attacking. Friends are in terrible danger. Dire warnings and omens are everywhere, all with one message—something is terribly wrong.
Whether he’s facing off against Professor Pyg, saving the city with his partner, Catwoman, or chasing a masked criminal who never slows down, nothing is what it seems. But if Batman is trapped in a never-ending cycle of madness, how can he possibly escape?
If the only way Batman can get out of this nightmare is to confront his greatest fear, will the Dark Knight have the courage to face it? Or will he be lost forever while his enemies conquer Gotham?
Eisner Award-winning writer Tom King (Heroes in Crisis) teams with an all-star lineup of artists, including his Mister Miracle collaborator Mitch Gerads, Amanda Conner (Harley Quinn), Yanick Paquette (Wonder Woman: Earth One), Mikel Janín (Grayson) and more, as his blockbuster Batman run continues!
