For the first time ever, BatmanÕs Elseworlds tales are featured in a new graphic novel collection. In Elseworlds, heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places-some that have existed, or might have existed; and others that canÕt, couldnÕt or shouldnÕt exist. The result: stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow. Featuring Batman as a holy priest, Harry Houdini alongside the Dark Knight, Dr. Wayne reanimating a Frankenstein-like Bat-Man, Batman as a Green Lantern, a supernatural Bat-Man fighting the evil wizard known as the Dark Joker, a future Robin fighting off an alien invasion, and other tales!

PREDATOR #1-3 by Dave Gibbons (WATCHMEN), Adam Kubert (SUPERMAN: LAST SON) and Andy Kubert (DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE) in DC COMICS/DARK HORSE COMICS: BATMAN VS. PREDATOR. While fear and darkness have always haunted the streets of Gotham City, a new terror has crept onto the rooftops and into the hearts of its citizens.

In an epic showdown, the Dark Knight must use all of his skills, both martial and mental, to beat this otherworldly menace. After their first bloody contact, Batman faces off against the alien Predator a second time as a price is put on his head by a ruthless gangster. This time Batman enlists the help of the Huntress as he fends off both the assassins and the Predator. Finally, Batman and Robin must face a third incursion from space as a deadly gang war rages across the streets of Gotham.
