  • Details
    Written by Alan Grant, with art by Bret Blevins.

    The Scarecrow has busted out of Arkham and has a new crop of zombie student thugs under his control including the son of Paul Herold, who he killed. Jean Paul Valley, Batman takes down some street thugs and strikes a little more fear into them than Bruce Wayne might. He then rushes off to the university where Bullock and Montoya are gathering information about the Scarecrow. Batman saves them from a booby trapped VHS tape bomb while the Scarecrow readies his plans.

    Meanwhile Anarky takes on the Anti-Batz motorcycle gang.

    The origin of the Scarecrow is explored, his love of frightening birds and reading books. Eventually he became a psychology professor and decided to take up a life of crime to get cash and show his peers he deserves respect. He carried out a hit on Paul Herold on behalf of a man named Kendrick while Herold's young son watched. His son, now in college is now tortured under Scarecrow's control.
