Death of the Family

He crippled Batgirl. He killed Robin. What will The Joker do next? And what must Batman do to protect his secret identity and that of those who fight alongside him?

One of the most notorious villains in comic book history is making his return in the DC Comics New 52. The Joker will come out of the dark in a horrifying, unnerving, and huge way. And the grave consequences of his reemergence will be felt by not only the Bat-family, but by all of Gotham City.

Death of the Family is a major storyline in BATMAN 13 - 17, with tie-in issues in various Batman related titles.

The tie-ins are NOT part of the main story line. They are self-contained side stories that expand on supporting character roles in the main event. You won't need to read them to understand the core storyline however they are a great way to sample new books and characters.
