Wedding bells are ringing in Gotham City…and the criminal underworld is determined to silence them! Following The Joker’s discovery that Batman and Catwoman are getting married, Gotham City’s villains jump into action. If they are going to lose one of their own, it’s not going to be so that their greatest enemy can be happy!

Harley Quinn knows a thing or two about dysfunctional relationships. When she hears that her old flame is trying to get in the way of a happy life for one of her best friends, the Maid of Mischief tracks The Joker down to give him a piece of her mind—and maybe a few blows from her hammer, too. Meanwhile, Nightwing fulfills his duty as best man by picking up the engagement ring when Hush interferes; Ra’s Al Ghul attempts to recruit Damian as the heir to the family business; Batgirl and the Riddler engage in a battle of wits; and Anarky taunts Red Hood as a failed Robin.

This new title collects Robin vs. Ra’s Al Ghul 1, Nightwing vs. Hush 1, Batgirl vs. The Riddler 1, Red Hood vs. Anarky 1 and Harley Quinn vs. The Joker 1.

Green Arrow, Volume 5: Hard Travelin' Hero by Benjamin Percy

Green Arrow has lost his fortune, and now he is hitting the road to save America in Green Arrow Vol. 5: Hard-Traveling Hero.

They're called the Ninth Circle--a criminal bank that funds war, terror and carnage, all in the name of racking up profits. They stole Oliver Queen's company from him and nearly destroyed Seattle, only to rebuild it in their own image as Star City. Now they've got their sights set on the rest of the United States.

But Ollie is having none of it. As Green Arrow, he's setting out across the U.S. to piece together the clues that will lead him to the Ninth Circle, one brawl at a time. And though Green Arrow's never been much of a team player, his travels find him crossing paths with heroes like Batman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and Superman. But before they can team up, Ollie will have to make amends for the jerk he's been in the past.

Even with the full might of the Justice League behind him, can Green Arrow take down an organization so powerful they're seemingly above the law? Or will his quest just paint a target on his back so big that even Ollie can't escape it?
