Batman #87

Following up on the events of Batman #86, the latest issue deals with the GCPD taking Deathstroke and the other assassins into custody and locking them up in the new secure prison known as the Black Block. Batman #87 reveals Deathstroke and his team always wanted to get captured (which makes you wonder why they fought so hard against Batman and what they may have done had they actually won the fight). While not that big of a surprise, it does make you wonder about the mind behind these plans.

We see Catwoman continuing to help out, and a cameo by Lucius Fox, but the rest of the Bat-Family, Outsiders, Justice League, etc. is nowhere to be found as Batman continues to struggle following the death of Alfred.

The issue does have some notable action, including a tussle between Batman and Cheshire, and the prison break which leaves the Dark Knight with more problems, along with highlighting the attempts of characters like Riddler and the Penguin to use the current state of the affairs to their advantage. For fans.
