TIMELESS TALES OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST HEROES-FROM THE LEGENDARY CREATOR OF THE SANDMAN AND AMERICAN GODS. What evil is so powerful that it can melt the Man of Steel-and extinguish the Green Lantern’s light? How did Poison Ivy’s power first take root-and where did the Riddler find his calling? Who killed the Batman-and will the legend of the Dark Knight ever really end? The answers to all these questions and more are revealed in THE DC UNIVERSE BY NEIL GAIMAN: THE DELUXE EDITION, collecting for the first time in a single volume eight of the award-winning author’s celebrated stories of super-heroics!
