The mind games of Professor Hugo Strange once had the fledgling Batman battling for his sanity, a battle that the world thought had left Strange dead. Now, it seems, Strange has returned from the grave, bringing with him the terrifying Scarecrow in his quest for vengeance. And this time, to crush the Dark Knight once and for all, they're going after the weak spot in his armour - the sexy Catwoman...

Terror could easily be turned into a play. It's five principal characters (Batman, Doctor Strange, Scarecrow, Catwoman and Gordon) all interact on different levels and the main setting is a creepy old house which hides many secrets.

The script is extremely well structured - much more so than you'd expect from a story with the following premise: Two of Batman's old foes try to kill him... er... that's it.

My only real complaint is that the final instalment recapped on what had gone on in the previous episodes a little too much. While this works well in the original monthly comic format, it feels a little redundant in the graphic novel collection.

Another excellent Batman collection.
