They've got him CORNERED.

They've got him OUTNUMBERED.

They've got him TRAPPED.

They're in TROUBLE.

Gotham City P.D. has Batman trapped in an allegedly abandoned tenement. They proceed to bomb it from the air. Batman scrambles to the safety of a sub-basement, but loses his utility belt when the thermite in it ignites. After the bombing ceases, Branden's SWAT team scours the building and a wounded Batman, wounded and missing most of his weapons, has to fight his way to freedom.

Meanwhile, Detective Gordon begins an affair with his partner and Selina Kyle is inspired to don a costume of her own - a catsuit.

Getting shot in the arm and leg wasn't Bruce's plan, however with wounds, Bruce has learned from his mistakes. GCPD officers are crooked and Jim Gordon seems to be the only cop that B...

Keeps going. 0

One more to go!This issue slows things down a bit and focuses mostly on Batman's escape from the swat team sent in to kill him. Just Batman being cool, basically. After the escape, (which had an awesome scene with the bats and all), Wayne's alibi is that he's skiing in Switzerland. While there, Bruce ponders on getting Gordon on his side.Elsewhere, Selina punches out her pimp and a month later, she's officially Catwoman (though not my favorite design of the character). Then the issue ends with G...
