Spinning out of the events of â€śThe Joker Warâ€ť and Detective Comics #1027 comes a tale of the beginning of the end for Gotham Cityâ€™s status quo. With tensions flaring and a new mayoral candidate making his anti-hero agenda known to the city, Batman and his allies are stretched thin to keep the peace. But just as things couldnâ€™t look any worse, a string of gruesome murders has left a trail of the most corrupt in Gotham City losing their heads...literally. If Batman doesnâ€™t quickly find the killerâ€”the Dark Knight will be next.
