One name at the heart of this new, safer Gotham… Catwoman. It’s a conflict that’s been brewing for well over a year, and now it’s finally hittingthe streets. As war erupts the Bat-Family will fracture! The opening shot in the Gotham War comes from bestselling writers Chip Zdarsky and Tini Howard with artists Mike Hawthorne and Adriano Di Benedetto!
