Writer: Various, Artist: Various, Cover Artist: Eddy Barrows
Batman may be a loner, but he can’t always do it alone. In this oversize hardcover collection, current Batman writer James Tynion IV is joined by an all-star team of artists as someone targets Batman’s allies in Gotham City—young, untested heroes who model themselves after the Dark Knight but don’t have his training or resources. With the help of Batwoman, the Caped Crusader recruits these young vigilantes, training them to be a team worthy of Gotham’s biggest threats.
Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan, and Clayface are the first heroes to get recruited. But can a team inspired by Batman and trained by Batwoman take on an entire anti-vigilante army? Or will Batman’s vision of a team of Bat-heroes go down in flames? And as Cassandra Cain and Azrael join, can this team withstand the threat of the Order of St. Dumas? Or will inner conflict doom this alliance?
