Earlier today, we announced that all the books in the first two weeks of release from DC Comics-The New 52. As we ready for the week two books to hit stores, here are some of the press highlights from the past few days.
In an issue full of illusions, twists, and misdirection, Batman and Robin must cling to reality in order to survive. After four murderous psychopaths are released from Le Jardin Noir, the French equivalent to Arkham Asylum, the ensuing chaos is as much of a visual trip as it is a mental one. But who is the ringleader of this insanity and can Batman, Robin and Nightrunner stop him from turning the whole world abstract?

Mysterious villains will be terrorizing Gotham in BATMAN, BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT, BATWOMAN and NIGHTWING. And around the globe, evil takes new forms in BATWING and RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS. Can the Bat family defeat all these foes or is the fate of Gotham – and the world at large – permanently doomed?
