Synopsis for "Shaman (Book I of V)"Edit

  • Synopsis not yet written.


  • The first half of this issue takes place in the month of December, a few weeks prior to Batman #404 (the month is based upon the timeline revealed in Year One).
  • The name of the girl who kills herself is Tina Wilson. Tina's name will not be revealed until issue #2.


  • This issue was offered with a dual-cover, printed in four different color variations; Blue, Yellow, Pink and Orange. The cover logo was designed by Dean Motter. The Newstand version did not have the colored second cover.
  • The famous phrase "Criminals are a cowardly and superstitious lot" is attributed to the in-universe author Sir Maxwell Floppy. In both the Golden and Silver Age versions of Batman's origin, Bruce mutters a version of this quote mere moments before the bat crashes through the study window.
  • In Bruce's fever dream, he envisions mugger Joe Chill as a demonic looking snowman.
