Hello everyone and welcome to another spooky installment of the World of Bats: the Batman Book Club!
This week, to close off the month of October and our look at the horror side of Batman, we’ll be covering two one-shot comics, one classic and one modern!
First we have the Elseworld story Batman & Dracula: Red Rain by Doug Moench and Kelley Jones:
In this Elseworlds tale the Dark Knight Detective matches wits and brawn against one of the most dangerous adversaries in literature. A plague of the undead is sweeping across the city and the police are powerless to stop it. Dracula has come to Gotham, and the streets will run red with the blood of its citizens unless Batman can find a way to defeat this legendary foe.
And after that, we’ll end this week of spooky tales with something a little more innocent – as innocent as Gotham gets anyway – with the one-shot Gotham Academy: Endgame!
Gotham City has been overrun by craziness, and the power is out at Gotham Academy! But don’t worry. The kids are safely locked up, huddled around candles and flashlights and telling the Gotham City version of ghost stories: Joker stories! Meanwhile, a mysterious figure connected to the Academy’s past is patrolling the grounds with a crossbow, but who is it?
Little something for everyone this week! Let us know what you guys think of one or both of these stories down below!
