Batman: Gargoyle of Gotham Book Three – Rafael Grampá’s Penultimate Issue Puts the Pieces of the Mystery Together and Reveals a Truly New Gotham Universe

                Available for Pre-Order At Participating Comic Book Shops Friday, February 16

On Sale May 28

The harrowing journey through the dark heart of Gotham reaches a fever pitch in this penultimate installment of Rafael Grampá’s visionary series, arriving at participating comic book shops Tuesday, May 28.

In this acclaimed DC Black Label (17+) series, Grampá has introduced a nightmare-inducing lineup of new villains, including Crytoon, MOTH-er, and The Virgin. In this issue, Batman's investigation takes him to the deadly lair of Doctorgeist - where his presence is not only expected... but welcomed. Batman will find help in a group of new heroes and their savage fight for the soul of Gotham – and for the soul of Bruce Wayne himself – will send shockwaves through the city from which it may never recover.

Also available as a black and white “Noir” edition, Batman: Gargoyle of Gotham Book Three introduces readers to a new acquaintance for Crytoon, one that’s the most chilling yet. He will come to be known as ‘Little Joker.’” “Crytoon is a character that has very little to laugh about,” says Grampá. “In ‘Little Joker,’ he finally finds a twisted balance of evil in its purest form, and in the laughter of this sinister child.”
