The Handful of Dust wiki last edited by guttridgeb on 06/24/13 02:52AM View full history

When a madman attacks Batman with a new and powerful fear toxin, The Dark Knight visits the coldest and most distant part of his soul. And as his deepest fears resurface, he must rely on old friends to help quell the terrible effects, and to remind him of his true mission as a hero. But what Batman discovers hidden in a moment of courage may change his life forever... for a dark figure from his past has returned – the one adversary The Dark Knight truly fears.

Note Batman, Superman, and Scarecrow are the only ones who are real in this issue. The other character are seen in a Fear Toxin induced Flash page scene.
