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.

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?
