The Caped Crusader teams up with an almost record-breaking number of Gotham vigilantes (as well as a former foe) in this DC Rebirth graphic novel. Collecting Detective Comics issues 934 through 940, Rise of the Batmen finds the Dark Knight under the watchful eye of a new rogue who uses surveillance to study—and eliminate—Gotham's guardian. Upon discovering he's being recorded, Batman realizes he's not alone. Whoever is using drones to track his movements also has eyes on Red Robin, Batwoman, Spoiler, and Clay Face. Batman recruits the others to help fight their shared enemy.
Rise of the Batmen is a blast, a page-turner to read in one sitting. Clay Face is a fun addition to the Bat-family, and the setup of Batman and Batwoman trying to whip him into shape makes for some memorable moments.
Detective Comics Vol. 1: Rise of the Batmen is a gem for any Bat-fan, equally strong as a stand-alone book or part of an on-going series. (www.dccomics.com)
