We read “Batman: A Death in the Family” from issues 426-429 by Jim Aparo & Jim “Infinity” Starlin. Does anybody actually call him that? Anyways, this book doesn’t get very cosmic, but we do get the Joker/Ayatollah team-up we didn’t know we needed.
All this, plus Secret Wars #4!
Next Time: The Death of Superman!
