Hailed as a masterpiece. This is the story that changed comics forever. For Bruce Wayne, Batman is now a fading memory. As Gotham City yearns for its true protector, he will remember his old friend and re-introduce him to those who prey on his beloved city.
It is ten years after an aging Batman has retired and Gotham City has sunk deeper into decadence and lawlessness. Now, when his city needs him most, the Dark Knight will return in a blaze of glory to save the people of Gotham from the horror that created him.
Joined by Carrie Kelly, a teenage female Robin, Batman takes to the streets to end the threat of the mutant gangs that have overrun the city. And after facing off against his two greatest enemies for the final time, Batman finds himself in mortal combat with a former ally now turned government errand boy and only one can survive.
