This was the best single issue Batman story I've read in years.  Wow. 

Kudos to Tom King and Otto Schmidt.

Curious.  What's this story about?  I really haven't kept up with the Bat-saga as of late.  Hopefully they'll have an African-American ongoing writer eventually to do some arcs.

Better just to read it.  It's a stand alone story which requires no knowledge of present continuity.

I don't know if that will ever happen on the Batman title, though Bryan Hill recently did an arc for Detective Comics. It was supposed to lead to Hill writing a Batman & The Outsiders series but that might have been squashed now. Tom King is supposed to have a 100-issue story for his Batman run and he's a little over halfway through that so it's going to be a while before anyone else takes on that title. Dwayne McDuffie did a Batman story years ago (Blink) and Christopher Priest recently did a Batman vs. Deathstroke story for his Deathstroke run.

On Hill, I've read some of his Michael Cray run and it's not bad. It's a dark re-imagining of the DC universe. I also read the first issue of his Vertigo series American Carnage and it puts racism front and center.
