Discover how Batman has been affected by the loss of his partners! Batman must face Gotham City's danger alone for the first time in years, face the GCPD, and deal with Spoiler's death. Plus, profiles of Batman's former allies by Pete Woods, Phil Hester and more!
Summary of Stephness: Batman, violent and angry after Stephanie's death, is taking the streets alone after his allies have either died or left the city. Two of those allies, Cassandra Cain and Tim Drake, patrol Blüdhaven together. They each struggle to deal with the scars Stephanie's death has left on their lives, a process made much more difficult by the television announcement that Stephanie Brown was Robin.
