There’s a little bit of grey in his black hair, but all in all Batman looks pretty good for 100.
Welcome to the year 2039, where Gotham City is as bad as it has ever been, a place where the biggest fear doesn’t come from men in masks, but from Big Brother.
A member of the city’s federal militia, the Panthers, is dead and both they and the G.C. Police Department are hot on the tail of a suspect — an “unclassified, undocumented” man with a cowl and cape.
As the law tries to identify and capture this “Bat-man”, his secret allies, his motivation and his role in the Panthers’ death all slowly come to light amid a whirlwind of high-speed action.
Writer/illustrator Paul Pope (100%, Heavy Liquid) uses his distinctive storytelling and art styles in a celebration of the ideals of Batman and how they can be so timeless — even in a story set 100 years after his first appearance.
