The shape-shifting Clayface--formerly the disgraced actor Basil Karlo--is on a rampage, and Batman must battle his way through a network of his deadliest enemies to uncover the truth. But how do you stop a killer who can be anywhere--and anyone? And soaring above Gotham is another threat in the form of the Man-Bat, whose unstable serum has made his predatory plans much more deadly!

Two storylines featuring Batman are in this collection, along with a transitional tale; the second of the larger storylines is the stronger of the two. Clayface and his origins (at least in the post-reboot DC universe) are explored. A different take on Man Bat takes up the latter part of the book. Art tends to be the difference in this case- Alex Maleev's style has a grainy, noirish look in how he portrays characters like Clayface, but it feels a bit muddled at times. Ethan Van Sciver's more precise style on the Man Bat tale works better.

Nice Storyline but the Artwork was subpar.
