What Are You Afraid Of?
The Dark Knight faces a new and terrifying challenge this month in the debut issue of Batman: Kings Of Fear, a brand new miniseries from former Batman editor Scott Peterson and the legendary Kelley Jones!
After taking down the Joker, Batman begins the long ride out to Arkham Asylum. All the while, with the Clown Prince Of Crime prattling on in the backseat, the Caped Crusader is forced to face feelings of doubt, fear and insecurity as they begin to creep into his subconscious. After all, how much of a difference is he really making after all these years?
Arriving at Arkham Asylum, Batman then finds himself smack in the middle of a riot orchestrated by the Scarecrow. And, while he is able to subdue the majority of the villains involved, Batman is horrified to learn that the Scarecrow escaped with a hostage during the chaos!
This sends Batman into action once more, but he'll inadvertently find himself caught off guard by the man who started it all!
The debut issue of Batman: Kings Of Fear is absolutely brilliant! Edgy and smart, it's far from afraid to peel back the layers and take a look inside the inner workings of The Batman and those whom he calls his foes! It's gripping and beautifully intelligent, with page upon page of slick art that call to mind some of the Caped Crusader's greatest tales from the 80's and 90's.
One issue in, and both Peterson and Jones have proven to be a well oiled machine capable of kicking off a white knuckle thriller set to send its readers deep into the darkest corners of fear and uncertainty like never before!
