The war between Deadshot and Batman hurtles toward a deadly conclusion. While Batman tries to find a way to prove Floyd Lawton and Deadshot are one and the same, Deadshot focuses his quest for vengeance on Bruce Wayne, determined to take away everything he values in life.
With Batman unable to bring Deadshot to justice, Bruce Wayne decides to confront Deadshot’s alter ego, Floyd Lawton. It’s a high-stakes chess game between two men who are dark mirror images of each other: rich, orphans, men who’ve built themselves to the peak of their skills, but in drastically opposite ways. Can Bruce outwit—and if necessary, outfight—Lawton, or has he walked into his enemy’s killing ground?
Based on the hit video game series from Telltale Games! Having eliminated all the obvious suspects behind the killing of former Arkham employees, Batman breaks into the most secure area of the facility to search their most deeply buried files, only to be ambushed by the villain known as Black Spider. Meanwhile, the search for Deadshot’s true identity points toward a family called the Lawtons-a family with a dark and twisted history.
It’s a deadly game of cat and mouse as Batman tries to stop Deadshot from killing former Arkham Asylum employees, while also trying to determine just who he is and why he’s targeting them. Then Batman goes up against the Black Spider—does he work for Deadshot or one of the new mystery figures making waves in the Gotham underworld?
