Batman: Year One Hundred
Visionary writer/artist Paul Pope presents a futuristic mystery of epic proportions set in a dark, dystopian world devoid of privacy?˜and filled with government conspiracies, psychic police, holographic caller ID and absolutely no room for "secret identities."
In Gotham City, 2039, a federal agent is murdered and a contingent of Washington's top agents is hot on the suspect's trail. The?˜Batman, a forgotten icon from the past, is wanted for the murder. Amid the chaos Gotham City Police Detective Gordon, grandson?˜of the former commissioner, discovers that the man they are chasing shouldn't exist at all.
"The dark prince of comix takes Batman thirty years into the future ... Pope's grim style is perfectly suited to drawing Batman."
