The #1 New York Times all-star creative team of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Danny Miki introduce an all-new Dark Knight, with guest appearances by Brian Azzarello (WONDER WOMAN) and Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR). Following the disappearance and presumed death of Batman, former police commissioner Jim Gordon has been called to carry on the Dark KnightÕs legacy and become his successor. But while the name and what it stands for remain the same, this new Batman is far from just a copy of the original. Patrolling the city in a gargantuan high-tech Batsuit, Gordon is no shadowy vigilante. He has the full cooperation of the GCPD and the mayor, plus a multimillion-dollar budget from Powers International. But will an expensive suit be enough to stop the mysterious, weed-like Mr. Bloom before his deadly plans for the city take root? Collects BATMAN #41-45 and DC SNEAK PEEK: BATMAN #1.

THESE ARE NOT THE WORLDÕS FINEST... Batman and SupermanÑseparately, theyÕre two of the greatest heroes the world has ever seen. Together, theyÕre an incredible team...and the greatest of friends. But Batman and Superman have never teamed up like this before. This is a Superman whoÕs lost most of his powers and had his identity revealed to the entire world. Someone is coordinating a series of attacks against him that have brought him to the brink of destruction, and he needs the worldÕs greatest detective to help him put the clues together. But this Batman isnÕt Bruce Wayne. Jim Gordon now protects Gotham as the robot-suited Batman, and he has no reason to trust Superman...especially when his presence in Gotham seems to have brought on a war with a race of super-powered subterranean beings! They may not be the Batman and Superman who have done amazing things together in the past. But if they canÕt learn to work together now, there may no longer be a Gotham City to protect!
