Batman Death by Design By Kidd, Chip Book - 2012

A bit light on story, though the art's agreeable. Generally an Elseworlds kind of tale, set in the forties or so by the looks of the architecture and most of the technology used throughout (though a couple of Batman invented items would be sci-fi even today). The story concerns itself with graft and corruption surrounding buildings in the city, leading into a series of explosions targeting key sites. Kidd underuses the Joker... who might well have appeared here just for the sake of appearing. The art style has a washed out quality to it, which works in this instance.
