About this deal

Bruce Wayne is at a turning point, haunted by dreams of a dark future, while Gotham City oligarchs are being gruesomely murdered.

After some training, Avery tells Bruce and Anton to free two people who were arrested in Metropolis for drug use. Bruce knocks out Daniel Captio, and both Bruce and Anton go to the Crystal Hills of Abu Dhabi to meet up with Ra's Al Ghul.As far as kick offs go, Zdarsky's explosive first arc on DC's flagship title aims less for grandeur and more of the the same grounded, emotional character work that he's been bringing to Marvel's Daredevil title. The second story, titled I Am the Gun, is a Year One story for Zur-En-Arrh, giving readers the chance to better understand the origin behind the personality splitting of The Batman as he goes after The Joker, as the story explores the age-old conflict of either stopping the Clown Prince of Crime definitively or to live with the idea that he may escape and take more lives.

Taking over after Joshua Williamson’s reign on the title, what does Zdarsky bring to the Caped Crusader? An unexpected attack from the Joker interrupted the process before completion, and the incomplete programming latched onto a memory of young Bruce on the night of his parent's death gleefully celebrating the fact that Zorro kills his criminal enemies, gaining its ruthlessness from that. Their jail cells are suddenly unlocked one night and it is revealed that Avery Oblonsky was the jail warden who imprisoned them as well as Alexi Yahonotov, Department Chief in the FSB. After working well with Daredevil I really am interested to see where Zdarsky takes the Dark Knight and hopefully he gets to cover some less well worn territory. Most of the action is fairly solid, but a lot of the locations and backgrounds look uninspired and dull.His outfit seems to be post- Arkham City, but the description of his life is post- Arkham Knight, with no reason given why he would reduce his armaments.

He meets a female burglar name Lucie who agrees to teach him after admiring his dedication and wanting Bruce to capture all of her competition in the future.

Implacable Man: Failsafe's single-minded devotion to hunting down and destroying Batman would be enough to put the T-800 to shame.
