Publisher Comments:

An all new epic bridging the gap between the hit game BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM and its exciting, upcoming sequel BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY. Paul Dini (HARLEY QUINN, BATMAN: STREETS OF GOTHAM) is the game's writer and now tells this essential story that both gamers and Batman fans will want to read. Artist CARLOS D'ANDA provided visual concepts for the game and now brings his insider's expertise to this dark thriller.

P.M. Bradshaw, February 23, 2015 (view all comments by P.M. Bradshaw)
Paul Dini is an excellent writer. From his work on Madame Mirage and Detective comics, to the new Batman cartoon shows, to writing for the LOST television show, he is a writer for writers.

Here, he's written a five-issue story, collected here, to go with a new Batman video game. Usually this would produce a story of limited depth, but Dini creates a story of great power and depth.

Two problems:
1) The story seems to end prematurely. I'm guessing there will be an Arkham City 2.
2) The "digital chapters" at the end, though also written by Dini, are not nearly as good. The pacing is a bit rushed, and they don't really add anything to the main story.

That aside, the main story is a fun one for any fans of Batman. A worthy addition to the Dark Knight canon.
