BATMAN: BATTLE FOR THE COWL #2
Written by Tony Daniel
Art by Tony Daniel & Sandu Florea
Covers by Tony Daniel

With the destruction of Arkham Asylum and dozens of Gotham City's most lethal villains rioting through the streets, it would seem that Nightwing, Robin and their allies have their hands full. But they hadn't counted on the return of Batman himself! But is it really The Dark Knight? If so, why is he acting so strangely? And if not, is this a threat that could mean the destruction of Gotham? This 3-issue series continues to shock and surprise as the battle shifts to the next level with a face-off and ending that will have everybody talking. Who has earned the right to be Batman? Who thinks they deserve it? Robin? Nightwing? Jason Todd? Who will ultimately win the BATTLE FOR THE COWL?


BATMAN: BATTLE FOR THE COWL – MAN-BAT #1
Written by Joe Harris

Spinning out of the events in BATTLE FOR THE COWL, Gotham City is in chaos and the villains of Arkham Asylum are running amok. One such villain is the evil Doctor Phosphorus who seeks out another scientist in this one-shot to help him grow even more powerful. But when that scientist is Kirk Langstrom, a.k.a. Man-Bat, Doctor Phosphorus – and all of Gotham – will get much more than they bargained for!


BATMAN: BATTLE FOR THE COWL – ARKHAM ASYLUM #1
Written by David Hine
Art by Jeremy Haun
Cover by Ladr?nn

Gotham City has become a place of nightmares and madness. At its poisoned heart lies Arkham Asylum. For decades the lunacy has been kept under control by Batman and contained within the walls of Arkham. But with Batman gone, what happens once the walls come tumbling down? In this one-shot, will the Asylum's administrator Dr. Jeremiah Arkham fall prey to the madness that has plagued so many of his inmates? Or will he seize this opportunity to usher in a new era for Gotham's most haunted institution?

BATMAN: BATTLE FOR THE COWL – THE UNDERGROUND #1
Written by Chris Yost
Art by Pablo Raimondi
Cover by Ladr?nn

With Batman gone, the villains have descended on Gotham! A who's who of Bat-villains star in this one-shot including Catwoman, the Riddler, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, The Penguin and Ra's Al Ghul. What kind of havoc will these villains wreak on a city that's already on the verge of implosion? Who will oppose them? And could they all work together to take down Gotham City – or will they just destroy each other? Find out when THE UNDERGROUND rises!

AZRAEL: DEATH'S DARK KNIGHT #2
Written by Fabian Nicieza
Art by Frazer Irving
Cover by Guillem March

The Suit of Sorrows worn by Azrael grants the power of wrathful vengeance. It magnifies the wearer's sins of imperfection. It is a death sentence waiting to be exacted. So then why do so many people want it? And why does Azrael, the new soldier for the Order of Purity, refuse to give it up even when he knows it will eventually kill him? With Gotham City torn apart by BATTLE FOR THE COWL, the new Azrael seeks to fill the void left by Batman's absence and redeem his tainted legacy, but the League of Assassins wants the suit for Talia and her own heir to The Dark Knight's mantle. And through it all, someone watches, waiting to snatch the prize from the winner...

ORACLE #2
Written by Kevin VanHook
Art by Don Kramer & Jay Leisten
Cover by Guillem March

The Calculator will go to any lengths to save the life of his daughter Wendy – even if it means using remnants of the Anti-Life Equation to do so! But when Oracle intervenes, she soon finds out that the Calculator has been killing Internet hackers from across the globe to get his hands on the Equation, and the final name on his list is hers!
