Following off of Scott Snyder’s Endgame story arc in the current BATMAN run, Gotham City is in utter peril, with its citizens all infected by a new strain of Joker Gas and on a rampage throughout the city attacking anyone and everyone. This issue asks the question, who will survive Endgame?

In Greg Pak’s upcoming issue of ACTION COMICS #40, Bizarro takes the center stage as Superman travels to his long-time enemies home planet, where everything is backwards and… well… bizarre.

Bizarro has become a fan favourite since his debut in the SUPERMAN comics. A lot can be done with the character, and it looks like Pak is taking the fun and crazy route with Bizarro in ACTION COMICS #40.

Following the events of the award-winning Batman Arkham Asylum and City video games, BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT makes its debut as a prequel to the much-anticipated video game of the same name, concluding the video game series.

After Batman Arkham City, Joker is dead, and Arkham City has been shut down. Bruce Wayne finds himself at a crossroads as he recovers from his injuries in Arkham City, and debates whether or not Gotham needs a Batman anymore. But new threats keep emerging from the city’s shadows, starting with the infamous Arkham Knight.
