A computer hacker stumbles onto a private web broadcast of
a snuff film. Haunted by the images he witnesses he seeks
help from Gotham's police department, but is turned away when
he is unable to prove that the broadcast wasn't a hoax, only
to become the next victim. Batman is soon hot on the trail
and discovers that similar murders have taken place in Hong
Kong. Batman travels to Hong Kong to investigate, but soon
realises that he is out of his depth. In a land with different
laws, customs and rules of combat - can even Batman bring
this murderer to justice?...
Batman leaving behind the familiar surroundings of Gotham
City to stalk his prey in Hong Kong as he is haunted by the
fact that he was unable to stop a murder on his own turf.
Here he is up against the Triad, while the local police force
and Hong Kong's own vigilante, Night-Dragon, allow Batman
to conduct his own investigation. However, it is not long
before Batman discovers that all three are strangely connected.
But are all three behind the strange deaths?
plot unfolds smoothly and the ending does have an interesting
twist, which is impossible to work out as you're reading this
collection. The writer also takes a pro-Triad
stance here. Are they all bad? This is a little like the bizarre
romantic image that people have of the Krays (They only killed
their own and they were gents) and the Great Train Robbers.
This is something I've never understood - the glorification
of criminals. If you are stupid, or twisted enough to commit
a major crime you should be seen for what you are - a sad
non-achiever - not a hero.
collection is illustrated by Manga artist Tony Wong, which
adds a nice take on the story - even if in places, Batman
looks like the evil Zoltar from Battle of the Planets.
