Exclusive Preview: The Batman’s Grave #2

Two decades ago, writer Warren Ellis and artist Bryan Hitch galvanized the comic book industry with The Authority. Now, Ellis and Hitch are re-teaming for a 12-part Batman epic that sheds new light on the Dark Knight. Within the first issue of The Batman’s Grave, Alfred Pennyworth shared his conviction that he will live long enough to see Bruce Wayne buried in his grave. Bruce’s parents even purchased his headstone before their own tragic demise. Meanwhile, Batman put himself in the mind of a murder victim named Vincent William Stannik. Batman realized that Vincent’s killer actually considered him to be a friend. Vincent may have been dead, but that didn’t mean that his friend wanted to abandon him. Now, Batman is face-to-face with a serial killer he has never encountered before.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for The Batman’s Grave #2, the killer emerges from his hiding spot and puts up a surprisingly good fight against Batman. Who is this man? And how is he able to match Batman blow for blow?
