Exclusive Preview | ‘Batman / The Shadow’ # 2

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows…and perhaps he knows all too well.

Decades after the heyday of the Shadow, Batman has been confronted by a threat that appears to be the Shadow himself. And this Shadow appears to be targeting his old allies and even his own descendant. For once, even Batman can’t find his prey alone, and he’s turned to Ducard, one of his mentors before he became Batman. The problem is that either the Shadow was Ducard all along, or Bruce’s mentor has been replaced. Either way, it’s on!

In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Batman/ The Shadow # 2 , the Shadow attempts to convince Bruce Wayne that he isn’t a threat, but he already knows too much. And if Lamont Cranston isn’t dead, then who or what challenged the Dark Knight? The answers are overdue.
