The story is amazing. Also brilliantly simple. Batman is infected with something called the ‘Colossus’ virus. Leaving him seven days to live, with this deadly disease slowly destroying his body as he seeks a cure. With only one clue (Berlin) Batman sets out across the Atlantic. When he arrives, he is met by The Clown Princes of Crime aka The Joker. Turns out, Batman isn’t the only victim of ‘Colossus’. So with a shared survival instinct, the greatest of Gotham’s enemies are forced to team up to find a cure and punish whoever infected them.
The action is hugely exciting. Over the four issues, we get some amazingly different art styles. From the classics (Jim Lee and Gerald Parel) the very strange almost 3D style (Diego Latorre).
