KILLER CROC TAKES THE JOKER WAR INTO THE SEWERS IN DETECTIVE COMICS #1026!

DC’s got your first look here, spotlighting Rocafort’s incredible art!
As “The Joker War” rages on, the casualties are mounting, and the underground residents of Gotham City must deal with the devastating effects of the Joker toxin that’s been pumped into the city’s old tunnel system. Batman must risk everything to guide them to safety, but a familiar face has mobilized these forgotten souls to rise up in anger… and Killer Croc takes no prisoners!

After battling in the sewers, will Batman still come out smelling of roses? There’s no doubt in my mind that this story’s gonna have bite, and weigh heavily on the scales of justice. Batman’s heading for a reptile dysfunction, and no mistake.
I’d better leave it there, or I may land myself in a ton a trouble.
See you later alligators, in a while croc… no, I’m stopping now, I promise. My meds await me in Arkham Asylum.
