I read a comic or graphic novel about a year ago in a bookshop, and vaguely remember the following events in it:

  1. Construction workers extending a sewer system or something underground experience some problems and call their boss.
  2. They explain to the boss that while digging they came across a wall that's built like a vault with a steel frame and x feet thick concrete etc.
  3. The boss tells them to keep going (I think).
  4. It is the Batcave on the other side... or if I'm truly mistaken, Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

I don't remember the year of publication though.

Which comic is this?

    Fortress of Solitude is generally in the arctic so it's probably the Batcave. – Paulie_D Oct 14 '16 at 16:17

    The S4E7 episode of "The Batman" had a team of future archaeologists uncover the batcave in their quest to find a way to stop Mr. Freeze. But they were looking for it specifically. – Longspeak Oct 14 '16 at 17:04
  • “I don't remember the year of publication though.” — do you remember roughly when you read it? – Paul D. Waite Oct 15 '16 at 12:03
  • @Paulie_D - his "Fortress of Solitude" has also been located in the Andes, the deep amazon and on the moon – Valorum Oct 15 '16 at 13:29

    @PaulD.Waite About an year ago. I remember reading it while browsing at a B&N. – Achilles Oct 15 '16 at 14:32

I have no idea if this is what you're looking for, but your description reminded me a little. I have no context, though, I just saw the image here and I've no clue what story is actually going on in the issue. Maybe it will be useful in your search, or maybe just amusing? Anyway, I hope you find what you're looking for :)

    It wasn't the real Batcave though, nor was Superman actually betraying Batman. The whole thing was a put-up job designed to catch a gangland boss; i.stack.imgur.com/qvOnz.png – Valorum Oct 15 '16 at 13:03
  • @Valorum - interesting, thanks for letting me know... then it perhaps isn't a good match after all. I don't really follow comics, so I didn't know the story behind it, as I mentioned - I simply happened to remember seeing that particular picture and wondered if it might be relevant, since the visual elements are similar. Ah, well, perhaps someone with more comics knowledge will recall the story OP is looking for. – Megha Oct 15 '16 at 13:26
  • It's close enough that it's worth a mention. You have my +1, if for no other reason than that I had an excuse to re-read this rather amusing story. – Valorum Oct 15 '16 at 13:27
