Deep in the heart of Lazarus Island, the demonic legacy of the al Ghul family line has at last been freed, and the Devil Nezha is out for blood. To reclaim his total domination over planet Earth, Nezha has supercharged magic—anyone who dares use it is overcome by a demonic evil that supercharges their abilities to dangerous, unpredictable, and in some cases deadly levels! With Damian in Nezha’s clutches and Bruce haunted by the return of an old friend, the Dark Knight and the Boy Wonder are pitted against one another in the battle of the century! Legendary writer Mark Waid helms the next epic saga in Batman history, while superstar artist Mahmud Asrar makes his triumphant return to DC!

Below, in the all-new preview pages for “Batman vs. Robin no.1,” see where this story picks up from both “Batman/Superman: World’s Finest” and DC’s “Shadow War” event…and witness the possible return of a key character in the ongoing Batman and Robin conflict.

Perry is proud to count himself among Superman's friends, and prouder still to uphold the truth and justice represented by the free press.
