It’s been a year since The Joker took over Arkham, and Gotham is still trying to get back to normal in this all-new, 5-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the hit videogame Batman: Arkham Asylum and the exciting, upcoming sequel, Batman: Arkham City!

And now, an attack by a pair of super-powered twins increases the threat level and triggers Gotham City’s new mayor to call for drastic measures.

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Wow on that cover, looks like a lot of CG enhancement.

  2. I loved Arkham Asylum, but I’m always nervous about “bridge the gap” stories. I’ll give the first issue a shot and see how it goes, though.

  3. I loved the game and with Paul Dini penning the story how could I pass this up? I like that its the same style as all the character artwork from the game.

  4. Arkham Asylum was amazing and Dini deserves much of the credit!  Very pumped to see him back on a Bat book where he belongs.

  5. the cover has the”wow factor”. i like dini’s writing

  6. @Franktiger  It’s the Variant Cover (with Graphics pulled from the video game.)

  7. I guess the Titan Formula is going to play a big role in the Arkham City game? Lots of juiced up badies for Batman to smack with his new explosive foam. I can’t wait.

  8. Much better than expected. It was also fun to read a Bruce Waye as Batman story that is unrelated to the present stories. If you’ve played the game you will like this even more and if you haven’t played the game, gamer or not, you are being foolish.

  9. I did give up on the Bats however I was intrigued by what Dini was going to do with this comic

  10. Surprisingly short on action, I thought the Joker musings in the beginning were the best part.  I hope Harley has a better role in the game, I didn’t like how they whored her up in the game.  I want to see a less slutty costume and the hammer!

  11. Great cover, the story seems good Dini writes good stuff. Hope the next issue it just as good.
