On April 1, writer James Tynion IV and artist Guillem March make sure that the action is no joke as Gotham’s newest villain the Designer plans the biggest heist in Gotham City! The Dark Knight knows what must be done to stop this plot, but in order to do so he has to escape the most ingenious death trap ever created by that prince of puzzles, the Riddler!
