Exclusive Preview | ‘Detective Comics’ # 944

There’s a new team in Gotham City, but they’ve already been rocked by tragedy. Within the pages of Detective Comics, Batman and Batwoman have gathered Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan, and even Clayface together. As a trial by fire, they faced off against the Colony and its army of Batmen, but there was a high cost. Tim Drake, a.k.a. Red Robin, was lost in the battle and presumed dead.

In the wake of that, Bruce Wayne has reached out to Luke Fox a.k.a. Batwing, to replace Tim on the team over the objections of Batwoman. Unfortunately for that trio, a new force has chosen that moment to emerge in Gotham: The Victim Syndicate. They appear to be empowered individiuals who have a particular grudge against Batman himself.

For CraveOnline’s exclusive preview of Detective Comics # 944, Batman comes face-to-face with the First Victim, while Batman’s new team suits up for action against their mysterious foes.
