Batman: The Dark Knight Detective Vol. 4



Batman's classic late 1980s adventures continue, with the Dark Knight against Clayface, the debut of Anaraky, and the funeral of the Penguin!

In 1989, Batmania ruled the world, thanks to Tim Burton's original Batman film! The Batman comics at the time were characterized by the high-stakes adventures from writer Alan Grant and artist Norm Breyfogle, who added a horror tinge to Gotham City! Batman: Dark Knight Detective Vol. 4 includes the four-part "The Mud Pack," a creepy story centered around the villainous Clayface, plus, Batman enlists the help of Etrigan, the Demon! Plus, a new vigilante named Anarky debuts, and Batman attends the funeral of...the Penguin? This volume also includes "Blood Secrets," a story co-written by comics superstar Mark Waid, with Batman taking on white supremacists.

Collects Detective Comics #601-611 and Detective Comics Annual #2.

About the author

Alan Grant

Alan Grant first entered the comics industry in 1967, writing and editing a variety of British comics. In the late 1980s with writing partner John Wagner, Grant moved into the American comic market with their first title, the 12-issue miniseries called OUTCASTS for DC Comics. It paved the way for Grant to write Batman in DETECTIVE COMICS, and he became one of the main Batman writers through the late 1990s. He has also written LOBO, L.E.G.I.O.N. and THE DEMON for DC.
