- Full Description
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 (in the year 3000) fighting off an alien invasion, and other tales!
For the first time ever, Batman's 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 can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result: stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.
Looks good, lots of cool variety in both stories, time (from the old west to the 1930s to the future), and art. We like the P. Craig Russell and Howard Chaykin pieces especially, and the Kelley Jones is really cosmic. writers include Mike Barr, Doug Moench, Elliot S. Maggin, Chaykin, Alan Brennert, Byron Preiss et al.
Collects Batman: Holy Terror, Batman: The Blue, The Grey, And The Bat, Robin 3000 #1-2, Batman/Dark Joker: The Wild, Batman/Houdini: The Devil's Workshop, Batman: Castle Of The Bat, Batman: In Darkest Knight and Batman: Dark Allegiances!
