About this deal

Much like A Death in the Family never lives up to the potential suggested by its premise, The Cult feels more like an imitation than a masterpiece.

Faux Affably Evil: As sadistic and cruel as Blackfire is, he's superficially charismatic enough to make his cult members think he's the Messiah. The art of Bernie Wrightson and colouring of Bill Wray the equivalent of a horror flick that would give many people nightmares.What follows is a violent and horrific display of how all aspects of Gotham’s society were torn apart by the cult of Deacon Blackfire.

Batman suddenly finds himself the prisoner of a mysterious religious cult led by Deacon Joseph Blackfire. A little later, he watches as someone else is torn apart by a crowd, this time stopping Robin from helping.Released in the summer of 1988, the comic which was equal parts gritty crime story and psychological horror tale proved to be a hit. There are many unintended parallels with the rise of the populist right across the USA and to a lesser, although increasingly evident, extent in the UK.
