This week’s Batman #78 sees Bruce Wayne do his best Magnum PI impression while convalescing on a sun kissed beach, as Gotham City continues to be ruled over by Bane and his band of bandits and badasses. Meanwhile, Clay Mann gives us a magnificent riff on Norman Rockwell, and that’s all in just the first few pages of the comic. Check out our preview below as Tom King, Clay Mann and friends bring you one step closer to the grand finale of King’s run on this book.
In the first part of a “City of Bane” interlude, Batman receives help from an ally he thought he had lost for good: Catwoman! Still recovering from the beatings he took from Bane and Flashpoint Batman, the Dark Knight readies himself for a return to Gotham City, and it’s Selina Kyle who holds the key. She knows how Bane is fueling his regime, and she’ll help Batman shut down the supply line—but first she has to whip the battered hero into shape.
