There's nothing to fear but fear itself--unless, of course, the Scarecrow is involved. After years of psychological and emotional torment, Batman is pushed over the edge. Batman succumbs to his one true master. Fear. What is Batman's greatest fear? When the Scarecrow orchestrates a riot at Arkham Asylum to conceal an escape, the chase will take the Dark Knight on a journey into the depths of his own mind. Batman has faced Jonathan Crane's fear gas before, but a dose of the Scarecrow's new formula opens the hero to a world of self-doubt. Prodded by his enemy, Bruce Wayne's deepest fears come to the surface, with one question inching its way to the top of the list: Would Gotham City be better off if there never was a Batman? And even as he wrestles with this question that strikes at the very heart of his life's mission, Batman has to find the Scarecrow's hostage, who may be more than he appears! Batman: Kings of Fear collects the full six-issue miniseries written by former Batman editor Scott Peterson (Batgirl) with stylish art by the legendary Kelley Jones (The Sandman, Deadman).

This is a book about the comics genre and language, how these were used to create Batman, and how that character’s longevity is largely due to the medium’s unique formal qualities. It argues that Batman’s core appeal is his mythic nature which allows him to transcend changes in reader tastes, the vicissitudes of the comics industry, and the changing media landscape. While including some historical elements, it is mostly a study of how the formal aspects of comics are able to evoke uniquely mythic qualities that have made Batman such a long-lived cultural phenomenon and how efforts to adapt these qualities into other media, particularly live-action feature films, have succeeded or failed based on the strategies employed. The book sheds light both on comics as a medium and art form with its own language, syntax and codes and on the process of adaptation—a growing area of study, given Hollywood’s continuing interest in working with comic book superheroes.

Publishing alongside the world premiere of Christopher Nolan's third Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises", Will Brooker's new book explores Batman's twenty-first century incarnations. Brooker's close analysis of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" offers a rigorous, accessible account of the complex relationship between popular films, audiences, and producers in our age of media convergence. By exploring themes of authorship, adaptation and intertextuality, he addresses a myriad of questions raised by these films: did "Batman Begins" end when "The Dark Knight began? Does its story include the Gotham Knight DVD, or the 'Why So Serious' viral marketing campaign? Is it separate from the parallel narratives of the Arkham Asylum videogame, the monthly comic books, the animated series and the graphic novels? Can the brightly campy incarnations of the Batman ever be fully repressed by "The Dark Knight", or are they an intrinsic part of the character? Do all of these various manifestations feed into a single Batman metanarrative? This will be a vital text for film students and academics, as well as legions of Batman fans.
