Publisher Comments:

A New York Times Best Seller!

As a part of the acclaimed DC Comics - The New 52 event of September 2011, the Dark Knight continues his crusade as defender of Gotham City, taking on his greatest foes during a breakout at Arkham Asylum. But when his enemies gain powers and abilities far beyond their normal capacities, the Caped Crusader's crusade may finally be at an end!

Review:

"This Batman tale is supposedly all about the danger of both fear and the absence of fear. After a massive prison break from Arkham Asylum, Batman finds himself fighting many of his old foes, all amped up with additional powers. Batman fights to save Gotham, and himself, from these new threats, while trying to uncover the mystery of what is controlling them. While the fear element laces through all the stories, it's not enough of a driving force for the book, and Batman lumbers around from villain to villain and conflict to conflict rather aimlessly. There are some traditionally exciting superhero cliffhangers that would be effective, except in all cases but one the cliffhanger is disassembled moments later as nothing more than a ruse. In fact, the only cliffhanger of merit in the entire book goes nowhere as the character in question disappears and is never seen again. The book is overwritten and fussily drawn, with colors that are far too dark and storytelling that is frequently difficult to follow. While characters in costume are generally well-done, out-of-costume characters like Bruce Wayne and Alfred are inconsistent and ill-defined." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

About the Author

David Finch began his comic book career at the age of 22 at Top Cow. There, he created Ascension and Aphrodite IX, both of which were top sellers in the business. In 2001, he made the move to Marvel. His 15 issue run on Ultimate X-Men saw sales of the comic jump 40%. On Avengers, David's presence doubled sales with starting with his first issue. Eventually feeling the need for a change, David took on the monumental task of bringing a perennially low-selling, cancelled Moon Knight into the mainstream. His run on Moon Knight skyrocketed this title into the main Marvel universe and saw it sell over five times the all the title's previous releases. Now, David is working with Jeph Loeb on Ultimatum. In addition to his comic career, David has also worked on video games, music, and film. He has worked with Zack Snyder, Guillermo del Toro, Clive Barker, and Michael J. Straczynski, among others. His artwork can currently be seen in stores nationwide on the CD cover for the band Disturbed.
