Batman and Daredevil were made for a crossover. Both are dark vigilantes of the night, tortured by personal demons. Frank Miller wrote groundbreaking, noir stories for both characters in the 1980s which profoundly influenced their future treatment and captured for them more sophisticated audiences.

But these heroes did not work together until 1997, in an Elseworlds story written by D.G. Chichester and illustrated by Scott McDaniel and Derek Fisher. Batman and Daredevil: An Eye for an Eye pitted them against a pair of internally divided villains, Marvel's Hyde and DC's Two-Face.

This cover marks their second team-up, 2000's Batman/Daredevil: The King of New York, written by Alan Grant and drawn by Eduardo Baretto. Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, Daredevil's mortal enemy, makes a deal with longtime Batman foe, the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow double-crosses Fisk spectacularly, and threatens New York. The Kingpin must work with Batman (as he did in his second Spider-man team-up) and Daredevil to save the city.
