This is what Kevin Reilly said, “This is all of the classic Batman characters, with a young Bruce Wayne, the Penguin, the Riddler and how they came to be. What events led up to someone becoming Catwoman.This is not some adjunct companion series. This is the Batman franchise, just backing it up in chronology".
