The plot:
Batman is infected with a strange virus that was designed to be extremely debilitating and fatal. He naturally assumes his archnemesis, Joker, is to blame but he quickly learns that Joker has also been infected with the same virus. With the clock ticking, Batman decides to join forces with Joker and pull all of the resources at their disposal.

With the aid of Alfred, Batman discovers the origins of the virus point to somewhere in Europe. So, Batman and Joker trek across Europe with nothing but their wits to keep them alive.

Joker does his best to try to inject a little dark humor into their predicament but Batman refuses to make light of such a harrowing situation. Though, he does hold back his laughter more than once.

Eventually, they discover the antidote and who created the virus. The reveal was somewhat surprising but makes perfect sense.

Afterwards, the story comes to a climactic end with a very awesome fight scene!

My Thoughts:
The story is very well written and all of the illustrations are top notch.

If you’re a long time fan of Batman and/or DC Comics then I definitely recommend Batman Europa.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
