Book Blurb:
The prequel to the best-selling game BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT!

The Joker is dead. 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. Don’t miss this in-continuity prequel comic set prior to the events of the brand-new video game Batman: Arkham Knight!


My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

My Review:
“Oh No” is something that I wouldn’t usually say when reading a comic but this time I did… that is when I had finished, I wanted more you see!

With its gloriously vibrant colours mixed with a dark storyline this is another great offering from DC Entertainment which will immerse you. From Alfred’s snarky comments on Bruce’s behaviour to the taunting and goading from Gotham’s less morally compassed foes.

The story is set prior to Arkham Knight and gives us an insight into the  cat and mouse relationship between Batman and his nemesis, and how it develops into the infamous ongoing dual for good over evil, where it seems one cannot live without the other.

This novel contains some excellent and exclusive artwork and the hardback is a true keepsake to fans of the game series.

Thanks to DC Entertainment and NetGalley for the ARC of this book in return for my review.
