Synopsis: Batman has to face minor gangs in modern streets of big city. He has to face their "big brothers" too. And cops.
Comment: Jan Strand's realistic approach of classic Batman story is effective, so is Richard Corben's artwork. Batman is invinsible, but slightly cartoonic character. "Bat ears" are much shorter than in this version thant they used to be in modern versions of Batman. Story is one of the most realistics of all the stories in the this special serie.
