    Tying into his other blockbuster stories of 2008 FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, THE RESURRECTION OF RA'S AL GHUL, the legendary Grant Morrison confronts readers with the unthinkable ... the death of The Dark Knight.

Soon Bruce Wayne drops out completely, having seemingly become the victim of mental illness, and abandons his Batman identity for a life on the streets of Gotham City.

    Collects DC Universe #0 (Prologue) pp. 8-10 & BATMAN #676-683.
