One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, Grant Morrison's arrival in the world of the Dark Knight changed the character forever.

Now collecting the entirety of this epic saga, this first of three omnibus collections introduces Batman to his son, Damian Wayne, and takes the Caped Crusader from the brink of death to the edge of madness. These blockbuster stories, including the now-classic Batman & Son, Batman: The Black Glove and Batman R.I.P., feature a deconstruction of superhero comics like no other, with a challenging, thought-provoking take on the man behind the cowl.

Collects Batman #655-658, #663-683 and stories from DC Universe #0 and #30 and #47, from artists Andy Kubert, J.H. Williams III, Tony S. Daniel and more, along with two brand-new pages from superstar artist Chris Burnham (Batman Incorporated), recapping events from The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul.
Writer Grant Morrison is known for his innovative work on comics from the graphic novel Arkham Asylum to acclaimed runs on Animal Man and Doom Patrol, as well as his subversive creator-owned titles such as The Invisibles, Seaguy, and WE3. Grant has also written best-selling runs on JLA, Seven Soldiers of Victory, and New X-Men, and helped to reinvent the DC Universe in The Multiversity, All Star Superman, 52, Batman, Batman & Robin and Batman, Inc.

Tony S. Daniel decided to be a comics artist in the eighth grade, and he hasn't looked back since. After making his professional debut in 1993 on Comico's The Elementals, he has contributed to Marvel's X-Force and Image's Spawn: Bloodfeud as well as writing and illustrating his own titles Silke, The Tenth, and F5, which led him into work in Hollywood. After being lured back into comics to work with writer Geoff Johns on Teen Titans, Daniel went on to draw The Flash before landing his dream job pencilling Batman. The Batcave is, he reports, surprisingly cozy. View titles by Tony Daniel
