Head into AZRAEL #1 with BATMAN ANNUAL #27

Writer Fabian Nicieza and artist J. Calafiore present a tale of a murdered priest. A desecrated grave marker. A kidnapped child. A secret key. A mystery whose solution could upset the world order. For Batman and Robin to stop the rampage of a zealot named Amon, the Sixth Sinner, they first have to halt a deadlier foe intent on making sure Amon succeeds. To end the killer's mad scheme, Batman faces Azrael, Death's Dark Knight. "The Eighth Deadly Sin" continues in DETECTIVE COMICS ANNUAL #11 and sets the stage for this month's premiere issue of the AZRAEL ongoing series.
