An epic 4 part tale from writer Jim Starlin and artist Bernie Wrightson featuring Batman Vs Joseph "Deacon" Blackfire and his large gathering of homeless followers in the sewers.
In this mini-series, Blackfire proceeds to take over the entire city of Gotham with his small army whilst attempting to take Commissioner Gordon's life. This story sees Batman broken like no other villain has ever done to him through drugging, brainwashing and even making Batman believe in a false god. The only hope he has is his wits, grit and Robin (Jason Todd).
The series was released two years after Frank Miller
's Batman: The Dark Knight
and takes many stylistic influences from the series. It also features a rare supporting role for then Robin Jason Todd. Collected Editions:
