    Exclusive Preview: “Detective Comics” #972

    The Clayface story in “Detective Comics” has been one of the best, and most underrated, stories since ‘Rebirth’ begin. Basil’s story, told masterfully by James Tynion IV and a slew of artists, hasn’t felt forced at all, and has unfolded so interestingly over the past 30+ issues. It seems tragic that he is resorting back to his villainous ways, but that is what appears to be happening in the ‘Fall of the Batmen’ arc. Miguel Mendonca has been slowly evolving Basil into a far scarier appearance over the past few issues, and this issue sees him fully, physically, embrace the villain again. We are thrilled to share an exclusive first look at the issue, the fourth part of ‘Fall of the Batmen,’ which hits stories on January 10th.

    “Fall Of The Batmen” part four! Batman might have overpowered the Victim Syndicate, but they had one last surprise for him: a secret weapon that’s made one of his strongest rogues nearly unstoppable!

    Thanks again to DC for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!

      Fairly good guess why Bat-Tim wanted to kill Batwoman: she is going to kill someone, deliberately or by accident, someone who has died before. Oh and its not Bruce.
