After the climactic events of The Gotham War, Batman is in worse shape than ever. Good thing he’s getting a relaxing vacation in DC Comics Batman #139!
Just kidding, things are worse than ever in the new issue from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Jorge Jimenez. Now only is Batman dealing with the resurgence of the Batman of Zur-en-arrh, his more extreme personality… But The Joker is back. And that’s no laughing matter.
Check out the preview below for a little tease of what’s to come in the latest arc, “Mind Bomb.”
