There's nothing to fear but fear itself--unless, of course, the Scarecrow is involved. After years of psychological and emotional torment, Batman is pushed over the edge. Batman succumbs to his one true master. Fear.

What is Batman's greatest fears?

When the Scarecrow orchestrates a riot at Arkham Asylum to conceal an escape, the chase will take the Dark Knight on a journey into the depths of his own mind.

Batman has faced Jonathan Crane's fear gas before, but a dose of the Scarecrow's new formula opens the hero to a world of self-doubt. Prodded by his enemy, Bruce Wayne's deepest fears come to the surface, with one question inching its way to the top of the list- Would Gotham City be better off if there never was a Batman? And even as he wrestles with this question that strikes at the very heart of his life's mission, Batman has to find the Scarecrow's hostage, who may be more than he appears!

BATMAN- KINGS OF FEAR collects the full six-issue miniseries written by former Batman editor Scott Peterson (BATGIRL) with stylish art by the legendary Kelley Jones (THE SANDMAN, DEADMAN).
