The second part of “Shadow War” continues April 5, 2022, in Batman # 122, where Howard Porter delivers the art and head cover.

Ra’s al Ghul is dead and Talia is out for revenge! Batman is on the case, in a race against time to find Deathstroke before Talia’s elite assassins do! But as the world’s greatest detective begins to gather clues, he realizes that not everything is what it seems when it comes to “The Demon’s Heads” death, and the questions lead back to Talia herself! What extra strain will this put on the relationship between these two former boyfriends? In the backup story, artist Trevor Hairsine joins Williamson, revealing for the first time the secret first battle between Batman and Deathstroke!

Batman # 122 also has a main variant cover by Gabriele Dell’Otto, a linking 1:25 variant cover by Roger Cruz and Victor Olazaba and a 1:50 variant cover by JOCK.

Artist Paolo Pantalena joins Williamson as artist for Part 3 of this exciting event on April 26 in issue eight of Deathstroke Inc! After Ra’s al Ghul’s death, Deathstroke Inc. has been destroyed, his villains have been killed by the Shadow of the Demon, and Slade and Respawn are on the run! If they can survive this deadly glove of skilled and bloodthirsty assassins, Deathstroke might be able to explain to Batman why he killed Ra’s!

Deathstroke Inc.# 8 features a main cover by Jonboy Meyers, a variant cover by Chris Burnham, plus the second of three linked 1:25 variant covers by Roger Cruz and Victor Olazaba.

Williamson and artists Roger Cruz and Norm Rapmund close the April action in part four of Shadow War, also up for sale on April 26th. Robin and Ravager finally catch up with Deathstroke and Respawn, but will they convince Slade to give themselves up, or will this be a fight to the death? And what sensational revelation does Robin get, who will definitely rock Shadow War to the very foundation? Plus, Batman goes deeper into the conspiracy behind Ra’s al Ghul’s death and discovers that it’s bigger than he thought. He calls for backup, just not the backup that readers expect!

Roger Cruz provides the main cover, with Crystal Kung providing the variant cover for this issue, while Cruz and Victor Olazaba also provide art for the 1:25 ratio variant, which completes the three linked images.
