When Alfred attends Gotham Servants School, he is a clumsy and nervous boy going to fulfill his father’s last wish-he will become…a butler. But when he suspects that his new school may be involved in a criminal plot, Alfred must look within himself to see if he has what it takes to be not only a butler, but a hero.

From New York Times bestselling writer Michael Northrop (TombQuest, Dear Justice League), with striking visuals from artist Sam Lotfi (Mosely), comes the story of a scrappy kid who becomes a legend.

    This is a quick read, at about 160 fast-paced pages, but it both works as an all-ages adventure and a great look at one of Batman’s most important figures—the man who raised him to become the man who could raise so many other young heroes. On the surface, it looks like an odd choice—if not as odd as Johnny Constantine—but when I think about it, it’s one of the most original and well-earned solo spotlights in the DC Kids line yet.
