For years, Bruce Wayne has built up the legend of Batman, Gotham's Dark Knight. But sometimes, a legend will write itself. Sometimes, a memory long suppressed pushes to the surface in the most painful of ways, forcing a hero to question right, wrong, and all they thought they knew of humanity. Long-time adversaries like Clayface, Element King, and Two-Face can still find new ways to push the Dark Knight to untested limits. Sometimes, the darkness itself births the legend. It's tales like these from the creative minds of JOSHUA WILLIAMSON, WES CRAIG, CHARLES SOULE, DENNIS CALERO, FRANK HANNAH, MARCO TURINI, DEXTER SOY, JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, SHANE DAVIS, BRANDON MONTCLARE, JIM KRUEGER, MIKE W. BARR, and many more that give new breadth to the Bat in BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT VOL. 4 (collects 100-PAGE SUPER SPECTACULAR #2-3).

The recut graphic novel series from one of the most successful comic runs of all time continues here. The original Teen Titans-young heroes like Robin, Wonder Girl and Kid Flash-saw plenty of action but always stood in the shadows of their larger-than-life mentors. It was Batman, Wonder Woman and the Flash who ultimately called the shots. All that changed, however, with the arrival of THE NEW TEEN TITANS in 1980-and the lives of DC’s adolescent adventurers would never be the same! Crafted by comics legends Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, this all-new super-title featured greater dangers, fiercer emotions and more tangled relationships than any that had come before. The Titans’ celebrated stories have ensured that the names of Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Changeling will be passed down through history alongside those famous aliases employed by Dick Grayson, Donna Troy and Wally West. Now, for the first time, all of Wolfman and Pérez’s NEW TEEN TITANS tales are available in a comprehensive series of trade paperback editions. THE NEW TEEN TITANS VOLUME SIX collects issues #35-41 of the classic title as well as the crossover issue BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #5, and features the team’s epic showdown with Brother Blood!
