Anarky reigns in the streets of Gotham city. Which isn’t actually anything all that unusual, right? It is Gotham after all. What’s one more masked madman creating chaos for Batman to deal with? Just another day in life for those crazy or unfortunate enough to live in Gotham, right? Maybe not.

With the brief five-issue run and “Icarus” arc written by Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul, and the “Futures End” tie-in, penned by Buccellato, now behind us, the reigns of Detective Comics have now been passed to Benjamin Percy. What does the book’s new writer have in store for the world’s greatest detective? Well, unless things take a drastic turn, i can say it’s definitely not the Joker.
