And before the Caped Crusader can turn in for the night, he’ll have to deal with villains like the Joker, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Catwoman and the Penguin. If the Dark Knight hopes to ever catch some Zs, he’ll have to catch Gotham’s most dangerous criminals first!”

Dave Croatto, an editor at MAD, will write the story and Tom Richmond, an artist at MAD, will create the illustrations. The release date for has been scheduled for November 2.
