Black Mask has made Batman's training scenario a chilling
reality. The various crime families are leaderless... the
soldiers running for their lives while trying to grab a piece
of the underworld pie for themselves. Batman and his allies
have failed to contain the chaos threatening Gotham City's
citizenry. The media have exploited the situation so people
think that Batman is acting against their best interests.
Worse, he has lost the trust and support of Police Commissioner
Akins, just when he needs it the most. Before the day is over,
a friend and ally will be dead, familial ties will be broken,
and the balance of power in the city will be forever altered...
the three-part War Games collection draw to an explosive
conclusion. While it's not essential, you really should get

could argue that there isn't really much of a story when you
strip down all three acts. Hell, they could easily have squeezed
this into one collection. Thank god that never happened. The
slow build is what makes the final pages in this collection
all the more moving. I take back, now, my earlier moan about
Act II appearing rather slow moving.
also interesting to note that the constant stream of writers
and artists still manage to convey one voice. It never appears
that so many individuals worked on different segments.
is the perfect conclusion to a fantastic story arc. All Bat
fans should add this to their collection.
