Batman Day Reads

If you are visiting one of the participating retail locations, pick up a Batman Day Special Edition copy of BATMAN: NIGHTWALKER or THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #1 with a Batman Who Laughs cut-out mask!

The Batman Who Laughs is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse -- something both terrifying and oddly familiar. When Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman can't ever break... the rule that created the Batman Who Laughs!

Based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Marie Lu, this graphic novel adaptation brings to life the dark mysteries behind the gates of Arkham Asylum. Nightwalkers are  terrorizing Gotham City, and 18-year-old Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
If you can't make it out, be sure to check out some of the other essential Batman Day books below!
