The streets of Gotham erupt as Triad gangs battle the Ghost Dragons for underworld supremacy, while Batman tries to keep Robin out of King Snake's way.
The story begins with Batman and Gordon looking at the body of a young Chinese street criminal whose killers dressed him in a Robin. Batman blames the act on Dorrance, the leader of the Ghost Dragons, and the fact that rival Chinese crime lords are in a turf war. In Chinatown, Lynx and other members of the Ghost Dragons use a rocket launcher to enforce their protection racket, while Dorrance wakes from a nightmare cursing Robin and vowing to murder the Boy Wonder. Fearful for the Boy Wonder's safety, Batman tries to go it alone, fighting drugged up gang members in an effort to protect Chinatown.
