Red Robin has returned, resuming his work in Gotham City as well as his romance with Stephanie Brown, the Spoiler. These two, along with Batwoman, Clayface, Batwing, Azrael and Orphan, help Batman reduce the threat of crime to the citizenry.
But their success comes with a horrible price.
The First Victim and his Victim Syndicate want one thing: to make Batman pay. They have turned the whole city against the Batmen in protest, abducted Clayface and threatened to release all of Arkham Asylum's most dangerous villains if Batman doesn't unmask on live television.
Everything Red Robin has built to ensure a new future for the team could crumble if the Victim Syndicate triumphs...or if one member of the team makes a detrimental decision that could tear them apart.
Plus, a full-length look at Basil Karlo's tortured life, from being the son of a distant man-of-a-thousand-faces father to the accident that turned the rising celebrity into the shape-changing Clayface.
