ABOUT THIS BOOK
Who better than Batman to protect the dangerous city of Gotham, where even the cops are crooks? But the latest imminent terror might be too much for the burgeoning Caped Crusader, who is still carving out a place for himself in the minds of Gothamís criminals.

Thereís a host of deadly new weapons in Batmanís glittering, sinister city—in the hands of a psychotic mastermind called White Eyes. With his radical murder machine, the fiendish leader of Gothamís racist Bavarian Brotherhood can move beyond dealing drugs and hot guns to pursue his real passion: the white supremacist takeover of America.

The homegrown terroristsí first strike—at the heart of our nationís capitol—is only weeks away. But first theyíll test out their killer toys on Batman, who is hot on the trail of White Eyes and his brutal militia. Ounce for ounce, muscle for muscle, Batmanís no match for the cunning villain and his wicked new firepower. At least, thatís how White Eyes sees it.

Batman has other ideas . . .
