For the past five issues of BATMAN: ODYSSEY, fans have speculated to whom Bruce Wayne is speaking while telling the stories of his quest through the underworld. In the penultimate issue of the miniseries, which goes on sale today, their question is answered.
Being in Ra’s al Ghul’s underworld has turned Batman into someone even he does not recognize.

In the first two issues of BATMAN: ODYSSEY vol. 2, Batman traveled to Gotham City’s underworld to save Talia al Ghul from the clutches of her kidnappers, The Sensei. Oh, and this secret underworld also just so happens to be where The League of Assassins has set up camp for years.
In issue #3, Robin is introduced to Deadman, who joins the fight against the flesh-hungry creatures that reside in the underworld. But will having a team of allies be enough to help Batman defeat The Sensei?
Legendary artist/writer Neal Adams returns to BATMAN: ODYSSEY with a brand new 7-issue miniseries.
In the premiere issue, Talia al Ghul is kidnapped by The Sensei. In order to save her, Batman must travel to the Underworld, a land deep in the core of the earth underneath Gotham City that few even know exists. Not to mention, it’s inhabited by dinosaurs that not only survived, but have been continuously evolving. Can Batman survive amongst these ravenous creatures in time to save Talia?
