Get ready to ride with the GCPD in these epics from DETECTIVE COMICS #41-47 and the Sneak Peek story! With a new Batman on patrol, Harvey Bullock is leading a Bat task force-but can he be trusted? And what kind of welcome awaits his new partner, Renee Montoya? Plus, the Joker’s Daughter reveals her plans to take on Batman and his task force-and they might prove deadly to Jim Gordon! And the new Batman goes on his first mission with the Justice League to solve a series of mysterious mass murders.
THERE’S A NEW BAT IN TOWN
Jim Gordon has spent years patrolling the streets of Gotham City as one of its top cops. Now he’s doing it from inside a Batsuit.
With Bruce Wayne sidelined-perhaps permanently-the former Commissioner has taken on the mantle of the Bat, with a state-of-the-art suit of robotic armor and the full support of the Gotham City Police Department to back him up. But when you become the Batman, there’s a deadly learning curve-and an army of crazed criminals waiting to take you down.
Can Gordon keep up? Or will his enemies and allies alike clip the new Batman’s wings before he even gets off the ground?
Find out in BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 8-thrillingly written by Francis Manapul, Brian Buccellato, and Peter J. Tomasi, and stunningly illustrated by Fernando Blanco and Marcio Takara, it’s a bold new chapter in the saga of Gotham’s guardian!
