Batman: Death by Design

In midtown Gotham a construction crane collapses, narrowly missing Bruce Wayne during his public address to announce the demolition of the city’s Grand Central Station to make way for a new ultra-modern replacement. So begins the Caped Crusader’s first ‘architectural’ adventure, involving a corrupt union boss, an egocentric architect, a beautiful heroine, and a new villain—part-vigilante, part-architectural critic.
