‘Batman: Dark Knight Dark City’ Is Out In Paperback This Week So Here’s Why You Need It

Dark Knight Dark City, DC Comics

I've written before about how one of the best things about Batman is how adaptable he is as a character. Owing largely to the fact that he descends from pulp vigilantes but was refined for the world of superheroes, he can work in almost any kind of story, from gritty, street-level crime to world-traveling adventure, and even the occasional trip to space alongside the Justice League.

I think there's a good reason for that, and it has a lot to do with his origin. Ghosts and demons and other assorted haints are, after all, an indication of an afterlife, and the more you remind readers that, in comics at least, death is a transitional inconvenience rather than a permanent state of being, the more they start to wonder just why this guy is so mad about a couple of murders.

This is, after all, the finale of Grant Morrison's run on the title before he kicks off Batman, Inc later this month, and with the awesome last page of Batman and Robin #15 leading into it, it looks like fans of the Caped Crusader are in for some good times.

But the interesting thing about this pa
