The Batman R.I.P.: The Thin White Duke Of Death wiki last edited by Saren on 04/30/13 05:00PM View full history

It's "Batman R.I.P." part 5 – and this issue features two events so monumental that one comic can barely contain them! First, Batman faces off against The Club of Villains.

"Now do you get it?" 0

I still don't like this Joker's appearance, but he's got some awesome dialogue in this one! "You really want to know what it's like to be the clown at midnight? Where there's only ever one joke and it's always on you?" Gordon makes it partly through the traps, and runs into Damian and his mother. i don't know much about them.
