Oswald Cobblepot has a plan. No longer content with merely being the crime lord the Penguin, he yearns for the love of Gotham City. All he has to do is call a hit on Bruce Wayne, and in one night, the Penguin goes from notorious criminal to beloved savior of Gotham. Everything is going exactly according to plan.

But when chaos strikes, even the best plan crumbles. And when Joker returns to Gotham, chaos comes with him.

Now, with Penguin temporarily out of commission and Batman busy trying to stop Poison Ivy and a group of Joker-obsessed maniacs, a new threat creeps in from the sidelines. He calls himself Emperor Penguin. He’s everything Penguin was and more. And he’s bad news for Batman...and very bad news for Oswald Cobblepot.

BATMAN - DETECTIVE COMICS: EMPEROR PENGUIN Acclaimed writer John Layman (CHEW) makes his mark on the Dark Knight Detective, with incredible art from Jason Fabok (BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT) and Andy Clarke (BATMAN AND ROBIN). Collects issues #13-18.

About the Author:

Once an editor for Wildstorm, John Layman turned to writing comics full-time in 2002 and mainly wrote for Marvel Comics. However, he is mostly known for his creator-owned titles at Image Comics, such as the graphic novel Puffed and the Eisner and Harvey Award-winning series Chew. He currently writes the monthly adventures of the Dark Knight in DETECTIVE COMICS.

From Booklist:

After a sluggish start to Detective Comics, Layman, critical darling and author of the runaway hit Chew, has taken over as series writer and, thankfully, brings his signature wit and marvelous storytelling along with him. This installment of the series sends Batman on a wild penguin chase across the rooftops of Gotham City, where he finds himself fighting a classic rogue’s gallery of Poison Ivy, Clayface, and Merrymaker. What the Dark Knight doesn’t expect is a rising criminal star, looking to take over the Penguin’s territory. Layman takes the Caped Crusader back to his detective roots, complete with a crossover tie-in as the Joker turns Gotham City into his own twisted playground. Though Layman’s name on the cover will be the big draw, artists Fabok and Clarke are up to the challenge, often delivering outside-the-box paneling and vibrant splash pages. In his first arc on the series, Layman’s approach to Batman is both delightfully nostalgic and surprisingly new, making this a perfect fit for fans of classic Batman. --Ben Spanner
