This Just Happened: The Scarecrow Controls the Bat-Family

By Clark Bull Friday, February 7th, 2014

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not read DETECTIVE COMICS #28 and do not wish to know what happens, stop reading this post now (major spoilers ahead!).

“Gothtopia” continues with part 2 of 3, “The Maddening Crowd.” The tables have been turned on Batman as the Scarecrow controls Arkham Asylum and holds the Dark Knight in a padded room. Escape might be possible for Batman if he can gain access to the Scarecrow’s laboratory and crack the code on the Gothtopia Toxin.

But there’s a lot standing between Batman and freedom. The Scarecrow is just getting started! His fear toxins have turned Batgirl, Batwoman, Talon and Catwoman into a crowd of Scarecrow-esque villains! Can Batman neutralize his allies before they throw him back into a holding cell?

Above, take a look at the final page of DETECTIVE COMICS #28. Then sound off in the comments section about Scarecrow using his toxins to create an entire Scarecrowd! How will Batman dismantle “Gothtopia”?

DETECTIVE COMICS #28, written by John Layman and illustrated by Aaron Lopresti and Art Thibert, is available in stores now.
