What sort of universe will await us when it’s all over?
Six years ago, the legend of Batman emerged amid the greatest catastrophe Gotham had ever endured.

It’s a tale of blood and family secrets!
In BATWOMAN #19, find out the shocking family revelation that can turn Batwoman's world upside down. Plus, Bones threatens Kate, forcing her to betray one of Gotham’s most revered heroes.

Meanwhile, the origin of Agent Cameron Chase’s desire to unmask superheroes is revealed as she tracks down a family member of her own.
