Users who pulled this comic:


  1. i bought this originally because i wanted to play the game and thought this might help with understanding the plot of the game and might unlock something somehow. the art is good and i like the writer well enough, but i gotta say, im glad to see this come to and end. if i knew at the beginning of the series what i know now, i wouldnt have started this in the first place. really, a city of crazy people right next door to gotham. im sure the game will be cool, but the comic has been a let down.

  2. I agree. The 4th issue was a bit better, but I definitely agree with you, it’s been a bit of a let down. Some decent art, but it seems like their just putting off telling any story…having read 4/5 of the miniseries, I still only know what I’d already read about the game.

    ….Arkham City game’s going to be the shit though……..

  3. Overall it was a decent miniseries for a video game tie-in. The final issue was a bit of a let down though. The Arkham City model of Robin is just terrible, but I guess thats how “gamers” want their Robin to look. A beefed up Nightwing who looks more like Roy Harper than Tim Drake.
    Anyway, I am really excited for the game and I only wish it was out sooner to coincide with the end of this mini series.

  4. Oh boy did I enjoy this series. This last issue however was kinda like the writer said, “Wellp I’m pretty much done lets just do something to wrap this up.” I wish we could get one more book.

  5. I liked the series of pages without cells that made up the last half of this book. You could call it a shortcut because they were out of ideas but I think it’s an interesting way to highlight the major players coming in the game.
