Hello and welcome to the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
So, considering that the last month was filled with these big crossovers and events, it might be a good time to decompress, and what better way than some short stories by some of Batman’s best creators? So for the next two weeks, we’ll be looking at the most recent iteration of Batman: Black & White, a six issue miniseries written by drawn by…a metric crapton of people.
A brand-new incarnation of the groundbreaking anthology series, celebrating its 25th anniversary! There is good. There is evil. And there will always be Batman Black & White. This incredible collection features stories digging into the entire Batman mythos: the Batcave, the Batmobile, The Joker, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Jace Fox, ninja man-bats, and even Batmen of alternate worlds. All done by some of the best creators working in comics today, including James Tynion IV, John Ridley, Mariko Tamaki, Jorge Jimenez, Andy Kubert, Joshua Williamson, and more!

Ra’s Al Ghul has become so desperate at this point that he’s like, “Okay, guys. At least land one hit on him.” I assume this story is set in the same universe as the YouTube videos of gamers who have played the Arkham games too much.
