Someone is killing some of Batman’s old adversaries – and in an uncomfortably familiar way.
First it was the KGBeast, then Magpie and the Ventriloquist. All dead. All by two bullets to the head. And all signs point to the man that the Dark Knight left to watch over Gotham City while he took a yearlong hiatus: Harvey Dent, Two-Face.
Has the reformed Dent, physically and mentally healed after years as one of Batman’s worst nemeses, gone too far in his efforts to keep Gotham safe?
As more villains are added to the body count and Batman is forced to confront the man he trusted so deeply, the conflict could just be too much for Dent’s fragile sanity to take.
This first One Year Later Batman tale, written by James Robinson (Starman) with art by Don Kramer (JSA) and Canadian Leonard Kirk (Aquaman), is a doozy. It gets rid of a lot of deadweight crooks, introduces a few (potentially major) new ones and sets the stage for a bright future for the Caped Crusader and his city.
