The Face Of The New Batman Of New York From DC Comics

Everyone seems to be leaving Gotham these days. Apart from Kid Eternity, who just moved there as a police coroner from New York. But Bruce Wayne is off on a round the world trip, leaving Gotham to the other Batfolk. But one of them is also leaving as well, the Next Batman, Jace Fox. And with this issue of I Am Batman #5, we get the biggest move away from a Magistrate Future State future for Gotham. Even more than the Magistrate's sky platform falling into Gotham Harbour and Simon Saint being put under house arrest.
