Katie's Pick

After a chance meeting with billionaire Bruce Wayne, Elmer Fudd's obsession quickly escalates into stalking Batman through the dark alleys and high-class social settings of Gotham City. Welcome to Bat Season! And the bonus Looney Tunes backup story features DC characters written by Tom King and artwork by Byron Vaughns. 

It is Bat Season! No... Wabbit Season! No.... Bat Season! In the dark, dreariness of Gotham City, the hunting seasons tend to blend together.

Seriously... YOU MUST COME AND PICK IT UP!
