Batman - As the crow flies is a 128-page trade paperback collecting Batman #626-630, written by award-winner Judd Winick (Outsiders, Green arrow) and illustrated by the acclaimed team of Dustin Nguyen and Richard Friend (Wildcats 3.0) with a painted cover by Matt Wagner. This collection also contains a sketchbook section showing Nguyen's early approach to Batman, the Penguin and the Scarecrow. Gotham City's underworld is thrown into turmoil as its crimelords slip into a rabid - and murderous - frenzy. Is it a coincidence, or part of an elaborate and sinister power play? One thing's for sure; The machinations of the Scarecrow and the Penguin will have Batman hard-pressed to restore order. Worse, Batman may have met his match in the vicious Scarebeast!
