First look: Batman #82 – Can Bane be stopped?

Gotham may be the City of Bane, but Batman’s come to take it back.

Tom King’s run on the book is quickly approaching its conclusion, with the final showdown between Batman and Bane at the center of it all.  Can Bruce set aside his rage and focus on the situation at hand, or will this be another battle of brains and brawn where Bane emerges the victor?

Before we reach the end, DC Comics have provided a sneak peek at Batman #82, where these two titans face off for the fate of Gotham City. It’s some absolutely stunning work from returning penciler Mikel Janín and colorist extraordinaire Jordie Bellaire, so check it out below.

Per DC:

It’s “City of Bane” part eight, as Mikel Janín rejoins Tom King for the climactic chapters of the epic, sold-out storyline that’s sent Gotham spinning into chaos and tragedy! Batman and his allies wage war on the City of Bane, but an unexpected turn of events will send everyone reeling. Will there be another death in the family, or can the Dark Knight break Bane’s iron grip over Gotham City?
