COMMISSIONER GORDON IS THE NEW BATMAN!

Following the disappearance and presumed death of Batman, former police commissioner Jim Gordon has been called to carry on the Dark Knight's legacy and become the Dark Knight's successor.

But while the name and what it stands for remain the same, this new Batman is far from just a copy of the original. Patrolling the city in a gargantuan high-tech Bat-suit, Gordon is no shadowy vigilante. He has the full cooperation of the G.C.P.D. and the Mayor, plus a multi-million dollar budget from Powers International.

But will an expensive suit be enough to stop the mysterious, weed-like Mr. Bloom before his deadly plans for the city take root?

The #1 New York Times all-star creative team of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Danny Miki introduce an all-new Dark Knight in BATMAN VOL. 8: SUPERHEAVY, with guest appearances from Brian Azzarello (WONDER WOMAN) and Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR). Collects BATMAN #41-45 and DC SNEAK PEAK: BATMAN #1.

If Snyder and Capullo hadn't already thrown the readers into upheaval with the events of Endgame, they take things in a new direction with this collection, featuring a Dark Knight coming from a very different world view. It ends up working very well indeed.

looks corny, but deceptably good. wont spoil anything but ties in to previous issue between Batman and the Joker.
