However, Tom King will conclude the story with his Batman/Catwoman series. Tom King is also well-known for his critically acclaimed Mister Miracle series and will co-write the New Gods film with director Ava DuVernay.

Here is the synopsis of Tom King’s Batman #73:
“The Fall and the Fallen” part four! Batman has been defeated by Bane’s minions and chased out of Gotham. As a last-ditch effort to save his son from the lonely fate of being Batman, his father from another universe, Thomas Wayne, a.k.a. the Flashpoint Batman, is taking Bruce to the far ends of the Earth to try to give him the one thing that will cause him to give up crime-fighting for good.
