Amazon.com ReviewBook Description
This book looks awesome! Acclaimed best-selling author Neil Gaiman (The Sandman) joins a “who’s who” of talented artists in lending his unique voice to the Batman lore for this not to be missed Deluxe Edition hardcover collectible! Focusing on the story "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" from Batman #685 and Detective Comics #852, Gaiman joins artist Andy Kubert and inker Scott Williams for a story that shines a new light on the Batman saga. Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader? also collects Gaiman stories from Secret Origins #36, Secret Origins Special #1, and Batman Black And White #2. This anthology is not to be missed!
In true Batman tradition, Gotham City is plagued with crime and corruption, but one man has taken a stand against evil of all forms: the dark avenger known as Batman. But now the Dark Knight is dead; apparently fallen at the hands of dying god Darkseid.
I can’t wait to check out “Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader”. It is said to be the “likes of which Batman and his friends have never experienced before.” This promises to be an exciting and thrilling tale!
