Gotham City is plagued with crime and corruption in places high and low, but one man has taken a stand against evil of all forms: the dark avenger known as Batman. It is the beginning of the Dark Knight's war on crime, and it is progressing well - so well, in fact, that Bruce Wayne is finding time to look for love as well as fight crime. But then the mysterious 'Jack', a crack-shot psychopath with no sense of humour, begins to fixate on Batman, threatening both the life of Bruce Wayne's lover and the fragile peace Batman has established. Will the joke be on the Dark Knight? Written by Michael Green, writer and producer on the hit TV series "Heroes", with art by comics luminary Denys Cowan ("The Question"), this collection is no laughing matter!
