A graphic novel with fully painted artwork by Scott Hampton.
Written by Archie Goodwin and Scott Hampton.
Batman: Night Cries uses the comic book medium to shed light on the horrific real world-crime of child abuse. When a series of crimes involving child abuse shocks the citizens of Gotham City, Batman and Commissioner Gordon embark on a quest to find the immoral perpetrator. But when Batman is accused of being the enraged killer of the child abuser, it is up to a young battered girl to come forth and clear his name. Treating this issue with the true severity that it demands, this book also includes a subplot in which Commissioner Gordon must come to terms with the abuse of his past and break its vicious cycle.
