BATMAN: THE DOOM THAT CAME TO GOTHAM (2000)

Story: Mike Mignola & Richard Pace, Artwork: Troy Nixey

This three part elseworlds story involves an ancient evil that threatens to rise and sweep over Gotham City.

Wayne has spent the last two decades exploring at sea. He returns to Gotham with trusted companions Alfred, Dick, Jason and Tim -- and inadvertently brings something with him from the frozen Antarctic wastes where he traced the lost Cobblepot expedition. Leaving Cobblepot, who went "native" with a flock of deformed penguins, behind he brought the expedition's only other survivor, a frozen wreck of a man, back to Gotham.

Over the course of three books, Wayne encounters Professor Langstrom (the Man-Bat), Jason Blood (the Demon), Oliver Queen (not quite Green Arrow), Harvey Dent (not quite Two-Face), and variations on the themes of Killer Croc, Mister Freeze, Ra's al Ghul and his daughter Talia, Commissioner Gordon, Oracle, Poison Ivy and more.
