A new era for the Dark Knight begins here in BATMAN VOL. 1: I AM GOTHAM, part of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!
He is Gotham City’s hero, its Dark Knight, its greatest protector. He is Batman. And he is not alone.
There are two new heroes in town—a pair of masked metahumans with the powers of Superman and a devotion to preserving all that is good about this twisted city. Calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl, they’ve saved Batman’s life, fought by his side and learned from his example.
But what happens if Gotham’s new guardians go bad? What if they blame the Dark Knight for the darkness that threatens to drown their city?
When sinister forces are unleashed that can warp the minds of men and make heroes into monsters, the time will come for Batman and his allies to decide once and for all: Is Gotham a force for good…or an engine of evil?
From the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event comes BATMAN VOL. 1: I AM GOTHAM—the beginning of an all-new saga in the life of the Dark Knight from superstars Tom King (GRAYSON) and David Finch (WONDER WOMAN), featuring an all-star cast of creators such as Scott Snyder (BATMAN: THE COURT OF OWLS), Ivan Reis (JUSTICE LEAGUE) and Mikel Janín (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK)! This great starting-point graphic novel collects BATMAN: REBIRTH #1 and BATMAN #1-6.
Superstar artist David Finch (WONDER WOMAN) completes his run on the Dark Knight in BATMAN VOL. 3: I AM BANE, the stunning new chapter in writer Tom King’s (THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON) wildly acclaimed Batman saga.
He is not a joke. He is not a riddle. He is not a bird or a cat or a penguin, not a scarecrow or a plant or a puppet. He is not a fairy tale or a circus act, a broken friend or a regretful mentor. He is no rich boy pretending to be a knight.
He is Bane. The Batman invaded his home, scarred his mind and broke his back. Now Bane has returned to Gotham City for a single purpose: break the Batman once and for all. But first, he’ll destroy everyone the Dark Knight has ever loved…or loathed.
The young heroes who’ve worn the mantle of Robin. The cops, crime-fighters and vigilantes who make up Batman’s army of allies. Even the madmen and monsters that haunt the halls of Arkham Asylum. Batman will need all of their help—and more—to fend off this unstoppable challenger.
Because both Bane and Batman know one thing: only one of them will walk away from their final confrontation unbroken…

Early in Batman’s career, the Joker and the Riddler would seemingly be natural allies. But each man determined that he and he alone must be the one to kill the Bat...and either would sooner burn down Gotham than be beaten to the punch line.

In the War of Jokes and Riddles, only one side can claim victory...but the scars it leaves will shape Batman’s future as he makes the most important decision of his life.
From the critically acclaimed, best-selling creative team of Tom King (GRAYSON, The Vision) and Mikel Janin (JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK), the epic graphic tale BATMAN: THE WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES has quickly embedded itself as one of the great stories in the Dark Knight’s mythology.

During the unforgettable events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH, Batman found a mystery he can’t even begin to solve—a strange bloodstained smiley-face button embedded in the Batcave wall. All analysis suggests the button is not of this universe...so where did it come from? And who left it here? These are questions only the Flash can help answer.
When the button is stolen by Reverse-Flash, Batman and Flash follow his trail to a parallel world, a twisted alternate timeline that shouldn’t exist. Someone is sending the heroes on a bizarre trip through reality, showing them glimpses of fallen loved ones and forgotten friends—but who?

BATMAN: THE REBIRTH DELUXE EDITION BOOK 1 collects the first two Dark Knight arcs from a new era, in hardcover for the first time!

Batman’s methods have always been clear. He fights criminals wherever he finds them. He lives in the shadows. And he works alone. But as Gotham evolves, so must the Bat.
A duo of super-powered youths calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl have joined the fight against crime in Batman’s city. They want to pull Gotham out of the shadows and into a brighter tomorrow. But with two godlike metahumans protecting the city by the light of day, does Gotham still need a Dark Knight?
Through these young heroes, the Dark Knight discovers a criminal plotting against his city. To stop this foe, Batman must align himself with a team of villains straight out of Arkham Asylum. This makeshift Suicide Squad is every bit as unstable as the real deal, and while Catwoman might have a good heart despite her troubled past, the other members most certainly do not.
Collects BATMAN: REBIRTH #1 and BATMAN #1-15.
