The OGs--those who stayed in Gotham during the cataclysmic events of NO MAN'S LAND--and the DeeZees--residents of the the city who left during the hard times and have now returned--are at each others's throats and it's up to Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Batgirl to keep the conflict from coming to a bloody head. On top of this civil unrest, Batman's longtime nemesis Ra's al Ghul has returned to Gotham with a deadly plan that will not only devastate the city, but also the entire world! Only the strong will survive in this collection written by comics superstar Greg Rucka (GOTHAM CENTRAL, Lazarus). Collects DETECTIVE COMICS #742-753.
