Judgment on Gotham is a Batman crossover event written by David Hine, Fabian Nicieza and Peter Calloway with illustrations by Guillem March, Freddie E. Williams II and Andres Guinaldo. It's published in four parts through the volumes Batman, Gotham City Sirens and Red Robin. This is a continuation of Hine's earlier work on the canceled Azrael series, continuing Azrael's adventures from his series' conclusion in The Tears of God. The story is preceded on Batman by Eye of the Beholder and leads into Pieces, on Gotham City Sirens it's preceded by Hell Hath No Fury and leads into Friends, and on Red Robin it's preceded by The Rabbithole and leads into 7 Days of Death.
Batman struggles with the scar he received from Azrael stabbing him with the Sword of Sin, although it's only supposed to hurt the guilty. When the Crusader begins destroying Devil's Square, Batman rushes to stop him alongside Catwoman and Red Robin. Azrael arrives and stops Crusader from killing Batman, but refuses to stop him from razing the city. He explains that they will burn the city to the ground unless Batman can find one truly righteous man in Gotham within the next 24 hours. Elsewhere Ra's al Ghul and Hans Gerlicht prepare the last of their Angels of Death, with plans to destroy Gotham using Fireball as a living bomb. Red Robin is the first hero that the Angels of Death test, putting him through a gauntlet to save lives across the city. Drake uses MoneySpider to help him investigate the situation through Jenny Lane while Crusader taunts him. Red Robin finally arrives at the ending and stops Azrael from killing Mayor Hady. The Sword of Sin proves that he is pure of heart, but he still does not past their test as Drake is unable to truthfully say that he believes in God.
