History has a way of repeating itself, especially in Gotham City. With Batman nowhere to be found, Dick Grayson and his allies find themselves in the crosshairs as the proverbial sins of the father are visited upon them. Now it’s up to Grayson and the gang to suss out the grim details of what happened five years ago when Batman and Robin brought down Mother and her human trafficking ring (in the pages of Batman Eternal). Considering that there’s a nanobot-wielding assassin stalking the streets of Gotham and a mysterious, silent young woman desperate to find Batman, time is of the essence. Issue #3 finds Red Hood slugging it out with his silent newcomer in a sleazy Gotham watering hole — but like everything in Gotham City, there’s more than meets the eye. Find out for yourself in our exclusive preview of DC Comics’ Batman and Robin Eternal #3.

With Bruce Wayne now lost to them, Dick and all his allies are out in the cold! Who can they trust? Is someone among them not who they say they are? And who is the deadly, silent young woman in black who’s come to Gotham City looking for Batman?
Prepare yourself for six months of international intrigue, twists and turns, and new additions to the world of Batman and Robin, from showrunners James Tynion IV and Scott Snyder, and writers Tim Seeley, Steve Orlando, Genevieve Valentine, Ed Brisson, and Jackson Lanzing & Collin Kelly!“
