On the eve of Bruce Wayne's return to Gotham City, the all-new Batman and Robin team who replaced him deal with the return of The Joker in this finale to Grant Morrison's run on the best-selling BATMAN & ROBIN series! In the three-parter illustrated by Frazer Irving (SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY: KLARION), Thomas Wayne - a man believed murdered over 20 years ago - has returned with an incredible tale to tell, and he's claiming the entire Wayne fortune! He's slyly demanding that Bruce Wayne must return if Bruce wishes to oppose the claim. But Bruce is lost in time!
And in Morrison's final issue on the BATMAN & ROBIN series, the BATMAN & ROBIN storyline connects with that of the best-selling THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE! The climactic showdown between Batman and the Black Glove is finally here. It's payback time for The Dark Knight as Batman and Robin face the ultimate evil. Will Damian betray his father's legacy? Will Bruce Wayne return just in time to see Dick Grayson die? And in BATMAN: THE RETURN, acclaimed artist David Finch illustartes a tale exploring what happens to Dick Grayson now that the "real" Batman is back! How will Bruce Wayne handle a reunion with his son, Damian? This special one-shot bridges two exciting eras of The Dark Knight and sets up a surprising new status quo that's just on the horizon.
