From the list provided by Diamond Comic Distributors, the month of February has been great for Batman, with DC’s Batman #28 reaching the number-one spot for the top comic books. If you haven’t been catching up with Batman, this issue has the caped crusader and partner Bluebird finding out that Catwoman, the new crime boss in Gotham City, is holding a prisoner. What’s so special about this particular prisoner? How about saving Gotham City.
