In the wake of BATMAN R.I.P and BATTLE FOR THE COWL, writer Fabian Nicieza (SUPERMAN, TRINITY) and artist Ramon Bachs (RED ROBIN) introduce an all-new Avenging Angel. Michael Lane is an ex-police officer that was recruited to take part in a secret program to train a place for Batman but was drafted by the Order of Purity to take on the mantle of Azrael, God’s Sword Justice. Now, he enacts an “eye for an eye” style of justice in Gotham City armed with glowing swords wearing a cursed suit of armor called the “suit of sorrows” destined to drive him insane. Will his quest bring him closer to his goal of redemption or simply drive him insane? When a hired killer comes to Gotham City seeking revenge for crimes committed decades in the past, Azrael faces an impossible conflict: What if God’s justice forces the hero to claim one of God’s servants?
