Batman Detective Comics Vol. 5



Gotham City is and always has been a crime-free utopia, where the heroes are celebrated through the streets of one of America's best cities. Batman is a universally beloved vigilante clad in white. His sidekick is Selina Kyle, otherwise known as Catbird. Who--or what--has created the Dark Knight's alternate hometown?

This twisted take on Gotham City, written by John Layman (Chew) and illustrated by Jason Fabok (BATMAN: ETERNAL), includes the monumental issue DETECTIVE COMICS #27 that celebrates the 75th anniversary of Batman.

Collects issues #25-29.
