All kneel before Emperor Penguin!

This new story from writer John Layman (Chew) gueststars Nightwing!

There’s a hit out on Bruce Wayne!

Bruce Wayne is about to open the new Martha Wayne Children Wing. However, not everyone is happy about it. One of those people is the Penguin! He contracts the Ghost Dragons to kill Bruce, so he can't make it to the party and the mad supervillain can become Gotham's new philanthropist by opening the Cobblepot Children Center. However, the young billionaire's Batman affairs ruins the night as Bruce comes in late for the opening ceremony and Penguin manages to do what he had wished. But there is still one thing remaining... Once the Ghost Dragons make a contract, they don't rest until the chosen person is assassinated!
