Batman Inc.: Leviathan Strikes

Grant Morrison's controversial Batman Incorporated series was chugging along with the odd idea that Batman would take his franchise global by selecting Bat-people for various regions of the world – and that Bruce Wayne would come out as publicly financing Batman.  Then, the New 52 hit and Batman Inc. was left in limbo, but since it's Morrison, everything he did gets to remain intact. 

Now, Morrison is returning with what he's calling "the long-awaited season finale" of Batman Inc., featuring "Batman and his allies trapped in a cold war brainwashing facility for the ultimate mind-bending battle against Leviathan and the diabolical Otto Netz, Masterspy. See the last hurrah of Stephanie Brown as Batgirl, in a sinister school for suicide spy girls! Find out what caused the Batman and Robin team to split! And witness the unmasking of Leviathan in a shocking final page twist that sets up 2012’s Batman: Leviathan, the epic concluding act of a Batman story six years in the making! With guest appearances by Batwing, Red Robin, the Hood, the Outsiders and more!”
