In this volume collecting BATMAN AND ROBIN #13-16 and BATMAN: THE RETURN #1, the new Batman and Robin must deal with the return of The Joker, then face the final confrontation with The Black Glove. Plus: What happens to Dick Grayson after the "real" Batman returns?
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!
Ever since Bruce Wayne made the ultimate sacrifice to destroy an unspeakable evil, a new Dynamic Duo has kept the streets of Gotham safe.
But the original Batman is not dead. And neither are his enemies.
Now, two of the Dark Knight's deadliest foes --- the Joker and Black Glove --- have emerged from the shadows to wage all-out war against each other. The very soul of Gotham City is at stake --- and Batman and Robin are caught in the crossfire.
Only one man can keep Armageddon from being unleashed. But has Bruce Wayne escaped from the grave only to fall into an even deadlier trap? And what will become of his successors once the one true Batman returns?
