In every city of light, there’s a place of near-total darkness where creatures of the night linger in the sewers beneath. Surrounded by bones of the hunted, this is the Beyond. Terry McGinnis comes face-to-face with Killer Croc, but what happens when all Croc sees is his next meal? He’s hungry, and angry, and Batman’s looking delicious. In a battle of epic proportions, Batman must enlist the help of Kyle the Catboi and his magic abilities, but will this be enough to get him out alive?
