Synopsis for "Way Dark"
Robin and Nightwing are summoned by Batman to get bat to Gotham City and help him retake the city. They used parts of the old Gotham aqueduct and sewer system to get into the city without being noticed by the security forces around it.
Meanwhile, Gearhead and Tommy Mangles formed and unlikely alliance in the Gotham sewers and they were taking advantage of any refugee, scaring them off and stealing their supplies. Some rats were attracted by the noises they made and food they dropped. One of the rats went back to Ratchatcher and the man knew that his little friend has discovered something.
As Robin and Nightwing approached the exit, Mangles and Gearhead noticed their presence and attacked them. Robin managed to fight them both and Nightwing knocked them to the waters below. Then they used an exit tunnel to reach the surface and meet with their allies.
- The events of this issue take place after Detective Comics #734. No Man's Land continues in Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight #120.
