Batman Enters a Brutal Supervillain War with Joker, Killer Croc and More (Exclusive Preview)

CBR presents an exclusive preview of DC’s Batman #118, where Gotham City’s most fearsome supervillains engage one another in a fiery showdown.

A new era for the Dark Knight begins in December as Joshua Williamson and Jorge Molina take the helm on the main Batman title with Issue #118. Judging by an exclusive preview from Williamson and Molina’s first issue, Gotham City is about to become a war zone between some of its most nefarious supervillains.

In the fiery showdown, brought to life by Molina and colorist Tomeu Morey, everyone from Killer Croc and The Riddler to Firefly and The Joker is seen murderously squaring off. Amidst all the bloody mayhem, the Caped Crusader looms large to bring back order and justice to Gotham. The preview pages are below, along with the standard cover by Molina and Morey, the Todd McFarlane homage variant illustrated by Viktor Bogdanovic and the variant cover illustrated by Francesco Mattina:

Williamson and Molina kick off their run with a four-issue story arc that pits Batman against a new masked supervillain named Abyss as he leaves Gotham in the wake of saving the city during the crossover event “Fear State.” Williamson follows James Tynion IV, who announced earlier this year he was leaving DC to focus on creator-owned comic book projects published through Substack.

Gotham may have survived Scarecrow and the Magistrate’s grand plan to take over Gotham but the Dark Knight never rests. Judging by Molina and Moreu’s cover for Batman #118, the Caped Crusader may be taking his crimefighting mission internationally once again, with a modified costume to expand this focus globally.

Written by Joshua Williamson and illustrated by Jorge Molina, Batman #118 goes on sale Dec. 7 from DC.
