Leading into the start is Robin #12 on March 22nd, also written by Williamson with art by Roger Cruz. It features a changed Damian Wayne returning to Gotham after the end of the Lazarus Tournament, only to have one more opponent to battle to the death: Damian Wayne! Wait for what?!

Issue #7 of Deathstroke Inc. also arrives in stores on March 22, written by Williamson with art by Stephen Segovia. A guest appearance by Slade’s daughter Rose Wilson, a.k.a. Ravager will offer up a father-daughter face off! Ravager wants to know why Deathstroke has proclaimed himself “King of the Super-Villains,” and she’s brought the mysterious character Respawn with her to find out. DC Comics promises past secrets are exposed, resulting in a cliffhanger that leads directly into Shadow War!
