One of the most popular Batman creative teams ever reunites for a twice-monthly- shipping 6-issue miniseries! Writer Steve Englehart and artists Marshall Rogers & Terry Austin set a high standard with their acclaimed run on DETECTIVE COMICS in the late 1970s! Now that team is back with BATMAN: DARK DETECTIVE, a miniseries that pits the Dark Knight against the most famous and feared members of his Rogues Gallery! In the startling debut issue, the Joker enters a gubernatorial election using the campain slogan "Vote for me or I'll kill you!" Will it persuade voters? Plus, Bruce Wayne's old love interest Silver St. Cloud returns, as do Two-Face and the Scarecrow! And the action continues in the startling second issue, as the Scarecrow manages to overcome Batman in the one location where he's most vulnerable: the Batcave! Meanwhile, the Bruce Wayne/Silver St. Cloud relationship heats up! Issue #1.

Joker found Two-Face waiting for him at his hideout. The former District Attorney warned him not to run for governor.
After seeing Evan off to one of his events, Silver visited Wayne Manor. After they agreed on friendship, Bruce insisted on showing her the cave beneath the house. While inside, he believed Joe Chill and several of his enemies were in the cave, then realized he'd been attacked by the Scarecrow (possibly as a policeman the night before - time released fear gas). When he'd overcome it, he and Silver admitted their love for each other. They gave into their passion as the Joker killed the first victim who didn't pay his demands.

Here we are on part two and we start with a confrontation between Two-Face and Joker.  Two Face is not happy that Joker threw his hat in the ring for the Governor's race.  The part of him that's still Harvey Dent has issues with this.  Interesting.  Will this play a role down the line.  I wonder. We dive back into the relationship between Silver St. Cloud and Bruce Wayne.  It deepens this time and puts both of them in an awkward position (with her being engaged and all!)   Bruce takes her to the...
