In this volume, featuring 13 never-before-collected issues, follow Bruce Wayne as his adventures take him through Gotham's underwold, a crazed carnival, the streets of London and even into the deep dark recesses of the Batman's mind. With tie-in stories from the KNIGHTFALL event, this is quintessential '90s Batman from one of the decade's quintessential Dark Knight scribes. Collects BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE BAT #13-24 and BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE BAT ANNUAL #1.
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, 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 Comics.
