Batman – The Detective #1, an extra-sized 26-page debut story, begins an epic tale that will take Batman on a harrowing, action-packed European adventure in a new miniseries by superstar creators Tom Taylor and Andy Kubert.

From the moment he lands in Europe, Batman will face a difficult investigation and unheard-of adversaries and find the assistance of a partner once more, all in the hunt for the villain known as Equilibrium…
