Description

New York Times bestselling and Eisner-winning author Mariko Tamaki reveals a potential future state of Gotham, a militaristic reality that rivals 1984.

Welcome to the possible future state of Gotham. The Magistrate, a freelance military and surveillance corporation, has been hired by Gotham's leadership to turn the old city into a futuristic surveillance state free of vigilante-based crime/heroics.

Batman, horrified to see what his city was becoming, fought tooth and nail against Magistrate--and they killed him for it. Or did they? Bruce Wayne survived this assassination attempt, and has been laying low for years now trying to sort out how to beat Magistrate. The only problem? He doesn't think he can anymore. They're too big, they're too powerful. And the latest horrific revelation? They have EYES EVERYWHERE.

It's left to Batman for one last mission. Destroy their command center, expose the drones, and free the city. Whatever the cost.
