An all-new Batman series by the DETECTIVE COMICS creative team of Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen! As a new Batman rises on the streets of Gotham City, the heroes, villains and citizens take notice. How will the police feel about this new Batman, and can he control the crime in Gotham the way the old Batman did?
This new series also features a regular ongoing co-feature starring Manhunter written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Georges Jeanty (Buffy Season 8)! Kate Spencer lost a friend during the chaos of BATTLE FOR THE COWL, and now she wants payback. As usual, she'll use any means necessary to get it. 
 
This comic starts  with Commissioner Gordon and his Gotham City Police Unit going to a local jewel shop. Harley Quinn is in there alone with the cashier who fainted because he knew who she was. Harley exits the building and tells Gordon that it was all a big misunderstanding and that she was just trying to shop. Gordon is surprised that she had money, which she got for helping Catwoman get even with Hush. Batman then tells Harley that she should get out of town to start a new life. Abuse then appears for the very first time. He goes a girl named Katie from getting sold to a man. Later Firefly creates a chemical to set the body of another person, to flames. Firefly lets his chemical loose in the Gotham City subway, while Damien Wayne visits Hush. robin then leaves and saves a man in a car, who is on fire. Batman then saves another man in front of Gordon and then gives Gordon's Police Unit, 10 Foam Capsule launchers to stop people from burning. The comic ends with Batman and Robin staring at Gotham burning.

Gotham is about to burn 0

In this issue we discover that Firefly has been formulating a plan that ends culminates into a thousand Gothamites bursting into flames. In my less than humble opinion, this is the best of the new Batman titles. From the opening with Harley Quinn, to the last panel when you see the city light up from the people who are burning. The art is incredible, and the writing keeps the book dark and moody. Very excited for the next issue....
