Summary

Summary

Following Catwoman's answer to his marriage proposal, Batman leaves Gotham City on a quest of renewal and redemption in the desert. As he travels and fights, he encounters members of his family--each disturbed by Batman's journey, each ready to stand in his way and push back against his stubborn determination to evolve into something better than a superhero.

Has the Caped Crusader passed the point of no return? He's going to need a little help from his friends, but this help comes with a downside- Batman's true intentions will be exposed.

This spectacular new volume further explores a key question throughout Tom King's entire Batman run- Can Batman be happy? Collects BATMAN #33-37 and BATMAN ANNUAL #2.
