Batman: Ornamental by Drew Van Dyke

Batman: Ornamental appears on the 15th of every month

The “Ornamentals” case haunts the GCPD: Women and children are vanishing, leaving behind no clues or signs of struggle. Even Batman and his fresh-faced new Robin, Jason Todd, find themselves stumped by these seemingly random disappearances…that is, until an investigation into the odd death of one of their rogues reveals a secret, imbedded deeply within the very bedrock of Gotham’s criminal underworld — one that a fractured Bat Family cannot seem to catch up to; one that even terrifies some of Batman’s most nefarious of foes…
