NIGHT.

PEOPLE TEND TO AVOID THE CITY IN DARKNESS,
FEARING THE UNKNOWN WHICH
LURKS MENACINGLY IN EVERY SHADOW.

BUT NOT THE... BATMAN . THE NIGHT IS HIS FRIEND... THE SHADOWS HIS ALLIES.

HE LIVES FOR THE COMING OF THAT COMFORTING BLANKET OF BLACKNESS
TO
SHROUD THE STREETS AND ALLEYWAYS OF GOTHAM.

THAT, AFTER ALL, IS WHEN THE LOWER DENIZENS OF THE DARK COME OUT TO PLAY --

-- THAT IS WHEN THE BATMAN COMES ALIVE !
