This volume also includes the special story arcs "Shadow Box" (by Chuck Dixon, Tom Lyle, Andy Mushynsky and Scott Hanna) in which King Snake returns to take vengeance, and "The Idiot Root" (by Peter Milligan, Breyfogle, Jim Aparo and Mike DeCarlo) featuring Batman going after the Queen of Hearts in Brazil.
