Considering it’s meant to be Batman’s 80th birthday this year, he’s certainly having a tough one so far. And its only April! This week sees The Batman Who Laughs #4 out from writer Scott Synder and artist Jock wh continue to lift the lid on the titular character’s plans for this world with a little help from an alternative reality Grim Batman. All the while, Bruce’s own mind is becoming more and more fragile.
Check out the preview of this mind-shattering installment.
Batman is on a desperate hunt through Gotham City, tracking down the dark version of himself known as the Grim Knight. But the serum Batman’s been self-administering has started to transform his mind, making him into something much darker…something amoral…something like the Batman Who Laughs—and he’s starting to lose his grip on reality. Toeing the line between vengeance and justice, Batman must struggle to keep his moral code as the Grim Knight gains control of the Batcave, sending all of his vehicles and weapons on a collision course with Gotham City. The Grim Knight, the Batman Who Laughs, even allies like Jim Gordon and his son force Batman to pull the trigger…and activate the Last Laugh. Will Batman be the savior of Gotham City once more? Or is he the kill shot?
The Batman Who Laughs #4 is out Wednesday 10th April from DC Comics.
