SummaryAdd a Summary
This is one heck of a mystery with some history. Action packed from the get go, Batman is off to save a boy from kidnappers out for ransom and gets caught up with the ravenous Killer Croc. Things don't go so well and Batman ends up needing the aid of a childhood friend who is a surgeon. Following closely on the heels of his dire injuries we get some ladies in play. The Huntress, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are all woven into the narrative making the mystery more confusing, but a little easier on the eyes. Flashbacks to Bruce Wayne's childhood and the origin of the friendship with Tommy Elliot, the surgeon, bring the story to Metropolis and the attentions of a certain man of steel. With a pitched battle in Metropolis' underground, this first of two volumes ends with a conundrum rather than a solution. Who is stringing all these villains along and what does it have to do with Batman...and Bruce Wayne?
