The Penultimate issue of ‘Death of the Family’ opens with prison guards dressed as Batman and Joker dancing in Arkham cells. These are the guards with no family members for Joker to threaten, so they are forced to stay in the asylum as part of what Joker calls his ‘Royal Dance Macabre.’ If you’ll recall, The Black Glove’s redecoration of Arkham in R.I.P. was also referred to as a ‘Dance Macabre.’ It’s the first challenge Batman faces in this maze of horror that Joker has created, and the next in line…

When it was announced that Batman would be one of the New 52 series that would receive a back-up, there was on bit of information that came as a small surprise.
