Gotham City is filled with stories--of heroes and of villains, of police and criminals, of families both lost and found. But the enchanted short stories in BATMAN TALES are brought to life with a classic fairy-tale twist that will fill you with wonder.

Once upon a crime in Gotham...

Damian Wayne dreams of becoming a real boy wonder--as long as he can avoid telling lies and making his nose grow.

Batman's butler takes an unexpected trip through the looking glass and finds himself in a topsy-turvy world, for Alfred's in Wonderland!

Gotham City Police Department detectives interrogate Gotham's most dangerous criminals looking for the princess who stole the pea.

And Batman meets a snow queen who leads him on a dangerous quest.

New York Times bestselling creators Derek Fridolfs and Dustin Nguyen return to their Bat-roots-this time with a fairy-tale flair!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This finds popular characters from Gotham living out a set of fractured fairy tales: Damian Wayne dreams of being a Pinnochio-like puppet; the Gotham PD investigates the theft of a diamond in a Princess and the Pea--themed story; butler Alfred takes the place of Alice in Wonderland; and Batman becomes enchanted by the Snow Queen. The first three tales feel noisy and energetic, full of puns and funny situations, with Batman's allies and foes taking the place of the traditional characters and adding their own quirkiness. "The Snow Queen" reads more like a quiet picture book, with full-page illustrations and lyrical captions. Those familiar with the team of Fridolfs and Nguyen from the Li'l Gotham series will be familiar with the sketch-like, watercolor artwork, which is particularly stunning in "The Snow Queen." Familiarity with the Batman canon is helpful, since some lesser-known characters (Talia al Ghul, Harvey Bullock) appear without introduction or backstory. However, anyone who likes twisted fairy tales or appreciates the humor in the Teen Titans Go! TV series will find this title worthwhile."
