Welcome to Anthology Land, where we can take a peek into how some of the non-Bat-characters are handling the “new normal” post-the verybadthing that happened at 7:03pm.  It’s very much a 90s anthology… so, prepare for a very “your mileage may vary” experience!

Plus: A thought-provoking NMaiLbag

One thought on “NML Crossing, Episode 011 – Batman Chronicles #12 (1998)

  • Chris U

    The contract was my favorite story from this anthology. Although I’m not sure when Bruce had time to get Wayne enterprises legal department to draw up that contract and then find all these mooks and get them searching when he has been pretty busy in the main titles.

    Robin being in Gotham searching also doesn’t fit the timeline. Tim hasn’t even arrived in Gotham yet in the regular books.

    This whole book was just another way to get another $3 out of completionists like me without giving any real advancement to the main story.
    I can see why this would be left out of the collected editions of Cataclysm.
