Three horrific murders rock Gotham with only one gruesome connection: parts of the victim's faces have been carved away. Meanwhile, a brutal Russian gangster called Perun threatens Amina Franklin, a doctor working at Leslie Thompkins clinic, which brings in not only the Batman but his bizarre new foe: Grotesk!

And as the mystery of Grotesk deepens, a vicious new player enters the game - a Japanese yakuza named Johnny Karaoke! Batman confronts Karaoke and his murderous Geisha Grrls while the monstrous Grotesk strikes once again! [per solicitation]
