See how it all starts! Celebrating thirty years since the publication of the seminal storyline, BATMAN: YEAR TWO: THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION collects both the original “Year Two” story line from DETECTIVE COMICS and BATMAN: FULL CIRCLE in one deluxe edition. With only a year’s experience as Gotham City’s new protector, Batman must now confront a nightmare out of the past—a distorted reflection of himself called the Reaper, who hunted Gotham’s criminals a generation earlier. His methods were harsh and cruel, and violent in the extreme. Now, just as a new breed of criminal is rising, the Reaper has returned to deal out his savage brand of justice. And the only way for Batman to stop this death-dealing vigilante is to forge an alliance with the man who destroyed his life—his own parents’ murderer. But can the Dark Knight stand to confront the secret of their deaths? Or will the Reaper’s revelations finally cost him his sanity? From acclaimed creators Mike W. Barr (BATMAN: SON OF THE DEMON) and artists Alan Davis (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA: THE NAIL, The Avengers), Todd McFarlane (Spawn), Mark Farmer (SUPERBOY’S LEGION) and Paul Neary (Captain America), this volume collects BATMAN: YEAR TWO: THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION collects both the original “Year Two” storyline from DETECTIVE COMICS and BATMAN: FULL CIRCLE.
Two of the stars of next year's highly anticipated action movie break out in their own solo adventures in this extra-sized, 6-issue miniseries! First, in a story by Brian Buccellato, Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend, Deadshot is on the run, taking on a series of new contracts, and re-establishing himself as the world's most deadly marksman. But things are about to get complicated for Floyd Lawton when a figure from his past threatens to expose a dark secret and Deadshot gets word of his next target: Lex Luthor! Then, writer Mike W. Barr returns to the character he co-created in 'Katana, Cult of the Kobra,' with art by Diogenes Neves. Katana needs to know more about Soultaker's origin if she's going to have any hope of controlling the sword instead of falling under its influence. Dr. Helga Jace, a Markovian astrophysicist, may be able to shed some light-but before Katana can get the info, Kobra's forces attack!
