Batman and his new team are after a band of thieves striking Gotham City in Detective Comics #43. They’re about to develop a new weapon that will make them much harder to stop!
This chapter of the ongoing series is rated T for Teens. It contains violence and gore, profanity, smoking and drugs, and intense and frightening scenes. We see prescription drug bottles spread out on Jim Gordon’s coffee table and Bullock is seen smoking a cigar.
