Following in the steps of Batman: Arkham City, as well as its fellow WB Games production Injustice: Gods Among Us which still has an ongoing comic series and the upcoming The Wolf Among Us, the highly anticipated Batman: Arkham Knight will also get a prequel comic series in early 2015. Written by Peter J. Tomasi, the writer of “Batman and Robin” since the New 52 relaunched in 2011, with art duties by Viktor Bogdanovic and Art Thibert, the series will debut digitally first in February with its print debut one month later on March 11th, 2015. The set-up for the book is as follows:
Fans of the award-winning and bestselling game series, including previous releases Batman: Arkham Asylum andBatman: Arkham City, know the Joker is dead and Arkham City is closed…As a new day begins, Bruce Wayne finds himself in devastating pain, recovering from his injuries and questioning whether his role as Batman is still necessary to the city’s survival. But as the sun rises in Gotham City, dangerous new threats emerge from the shadows…and the Arkham Knight is just beginning. This in-continuity prequel comic set prior to the events of the brand-new video game Batman: Arkham Knight is a must-read!
