Gotham City: a dark, twisted reflection of urban America. Overcrowded, overbuilt, and overshadowed by a continuous air of menace, this gothic nightmare is a breeding ground for the depraved, the indifferent, and the criminally insane. It's also the object of one man's obsession. Forever scarred as a child from witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, Bruce Wayne has dedicated his life to protecting this city from its many predators, taking a form to inspire hope in the innocent...and fear in the guilty. He is the masked vigilante known as the Batman.
With Police Commissioner James Gordon, these two men have always fought to preserve law and order, side-by-side, struggling against a pervasive and relentless criminal element, working together to hold the line.
Leveled by a massive earthquake that has left thousands dead and millions more wounded, Gotham City has been completely cut off from outside aid, transformed into a lawless battleground -- a No Man's Land -- where the survivors are turning against one another, and where the city's protectors are torn by a crisis that may consume them all.
Gotham now teeters at the edge of the abyss...and Batman is missing.
Critically acclaimed author Greg Rucka brings his talents to DC Comics' most complex and darkly compelling cast of characters. Powerfully written, this epic saga reintroduces and redefines the Batman mythos for the millennium.
Gotham City senza acqua, nè luce, nè gas. Senza elettricità o diritti civili. Dopo il sisma, semplicemente, gli Stati Uniti l'hanno sgombrata e si sono dimenticati di lei. Chi ha deciso di restare, combatte una guerra all'ultimo sangue per la sopravvivenza. Volume fondamentale della più grande saga batmaniana di tutti i tempi.
Siete pronti all'apocalisse?

Molto interessante la realtà di Gotham senza legge. Come ci si comporta quando non si ha più regole? E si ha fame e freddo?
Un ulteriore passo per comprendere meglio l'incubo metropolitano di Gotham City.
