Ethan Van Sciver teams up with Gregg Hurwitz for the next big Dark Knight arc featuring The Mad Hatter as the villain.
Too often I see people wondering ‘What is the point of this book?’ or ‘Why do we need so many Batman books? What is this one doing that the others aren’t?’

While the Nolan Batman films have done many terrific things with the film franchise, one of the best things about the two films is how well the Nolans and David Goyer have been able to choose the correct supporting characters to inhibit their Batman Universe. Mainly the villains; each villain they have chosen has carried much more dramatic weight and meaning to the films.
