Initially sidelined as an outsider, Harry becomes central to the Australian police investigation when they start to notice a number of unsolved rape and murder cases around the country.

Sixteen-year-old Matthew McGough was a fairly typical teenager, obsessed with getting through high school, girls, and baseball, not necessarily in that order. His passion for the New York Yankees was absolute, complete with a poster of his hero, Yankees first baseman Don Mattingly, hanging on his bedroom wall. Despite having no connections whatsoever with the ballclub, Matt dreamed of sitting in the dugout with the fabled Bronx Bombers.
"80's Yankees Fans Will LOVE It!"

Es gibt wohl kaum einen Comic-Fan, der nicht schon einmal in die Welt von Gotham City eingetaucht ist. Bruce Wayne, besser bekannt als Batman, gehört zu den beliebtesten Vollblutrettern der Actionszene. Aber genauso charismatisch und schillernd sind die Schurken, die vom Superhelden immer wieder vollsten Körpereinsatz fordern: der diabolische Joker, der Lehmklumpenmann Clayface oder der aristokratische Pinguin mit seinen Zauberschirmen - selten haben Verbrecher so viel Spaß gemacht.

Compiled by a veteran writer of the comic series, this collection of essays explores Batman’s motivations and actions, as well as those of his foes. Batman is a creature of the night, more about vengeance than justice, more plagued by doubts than full of self-assurance, and more darkness than light. He has no superpowers, just skill, drive, and a really well-made suit.
Batman is one of the most compelling and enduring characters to come from the Golden Age of Comics, and interest in his story has only increased through countless incarnations since his first appearance in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. Why does this superhero without superpowers fascinate us? What does that fascination say about us? Batman and Psychology explores these and other intriguing questions about the masked vigilante, including: Does Batman have PTSD? Why does he fight crime? Why as a vigilante? Why the mask, the bat, and the underage partner?
