Overview

For some it is the ultimate prize. For others, the ultimate power. For Batman, will it mean the ultimate sacrifice?

When a mysterious denizen of Gotham City gives Thomas Wayne's son an old box, it sets in motion a series of events that shake Batman's world. Suddenly, dark villains including "the Demon's Head" Ra's al Ghul, the Penguin, and Catwoman, as well as dozens of mercenaries, are battling to possess the simple drinking bowl now in Batman's hands.

As the battles build to a savage crescendo and deadly duels between combatants are played out, amny questions demand to be answered: Could this really be the Holy Grail of legend? Can even its apparently miraculous abilities keep the Dark Knight Detective alive long enough to find out? And what does one do with it if it is the real thing?

For the first time ever, this volume features the original graphic novel by the dynamic duo of longtime Batman scribe Chuck Dixon (Batman, Nightwing) and illustrator John Van Fleet (Lucifer, The Question) plus the limited series Batman: The Ankh, another story pitting the Caped Crusader against mystical forces. Collects Batman: The Chalice and Batman The Ankh #1-2.

About the Author

Chuck Dixon's résumé includes thousands of scripts for iconic characters like Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Iron Man, the Punisher, the Simpsons, Spongebob Squarepants, GI Joe and many others. He is (along with artist Graham Nolan) the creator of the Batman villain Bane, the first permanent addition to the Dark Knight's rogues gallery in 40 years and for which he won 1993's Wizard Fan Award for best new character. His graphic novel adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit is a perennial bestseller worldwide. His unprecedented 100-issue run on DC Comics', Robin is considered to be a classic in the comics medium. Chuck's contributions to Marvel Comics' The Punisher are widely acknowledged as integral to that character's development.
