Format: Hardcover
Set after the events of Arkham Asylum (the computer game), the Mayor of Gotham, Quincy Sharp, makes the baffling choice of segregating a part of Gotham City exclusively for the use of the inmates of Blackgate Prison and Arkham Asylum in an effort to better rehabilitate the prisoners (?).

If the premise sounds barmy, it's because the Mayor is being controlled by the mad Doctor Hugo Strange who wants to defeat the Batman by luring him into his nefarious schemes. As a comic book the story is very weak but remembering that this is a comic book to set up the video game Arkham City, it allows players of the game a vast array of options and an enticing playground where they can play as Batman, Robin, or Catwoman.

Anybody looking too deeply into the story will find flaws but allowing Gotham to be introduced means the player can control Batman in a cityscape, and introduces the supervillains of the Batman universe free reign to develop gangs and get more opportunities to go crazy. All to the good of anyone playing this game.

As a comic book, it's not bad. It's interesting to see how Paul Dini explains how the villains of the last game returned for this sequel and gives the reader a glimpse of what's going to be available in this game. We get to see Riddler play more of a role, Penguin, Catwoman, and Two Face are introduced, Poison Ivy, Bane, Zasz, and of course the Clown Prince of Crime, Joker, all return. All in all, it looks like an awesome game that I can't wait to play in 2 weeks time (the PC version that is, I don't have a PS3 or Xbox).

Not the best Batman comic book but a nice lead in and that's the point. Fans wanting more background on Arkham City the game will want to read this, Paul Dini provides a decent script, and there is some decent art throughout - but the book is really for fans only.

Format: Hardcover
Arkham Asylum was the smash hit of 2009 and featured, in unlockable bios in the game and one pre-order bonus comic, the magnificent work of Carlos D'Anda.

D'Anda returns to the Arkham universe for a more fleshed out position of creating a full 5 issue series with Paul Dini, the game's writer.

The series is set between the two video games showing how Arkham City gets set up, who the key players are and establishing Hugo Strange as the main threat. The series works well in making Strange out to be a very credible danger to Batman and Bruce Wayne, showing that he is always one step ahead of the Dark Knight and prepared for his every move.

There's a lot of decent dialogue in here too, with some rather amusing lines from the Joker (still recovering from the events of Arkham Asylum) and we get to see how Catwoman becomes involved in Arkham City. It's a pretty good read and really works well as a bridge for the two games, but sadly that's also its greatest failing, in that it is JUST a bridge.

We see a great deal of events set in motion, bad guys rise to power, plans begin to be implemented, plots thicken, but there is no sense of closure at the end. Some might shrug this off saying "well it's a middle part of a trilogy of sorts, of course not everything will be resolved," but that's not the issue here. Of course not everything is going to be tied up when it's leading to a sequel, but there should be some sense of it working as a self-contained story too. "Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" obviously wasn't the end of the story, but there was still some closure on plot points raised in the film itself; the battle for Rohan was won, the hobbits escape Osgiliath, Isengard is stormed.

Format: Paperback
This five-issue story, along with Batman: Arkham City Digital, has been collected as Batman Arkham City TP (Batman (DC Comics Paperback)). I see this as an Elseworlds story, as it obviously doesn't fit in with mainstream continuity - Robin looks like no Robin I have seen, he most resembles the Robin of the Batman films from the 1980s. It is also touted as the `lead in to the best-selling video game', though that in itself wouldn't have to push it out of continuity. The splash page shows batman punching-out a monstered-up Joker, who has been taking Titan, a souped-up Venom-like drug. This has had the fortunate side-effect of poisoning the Joker, who is now living on borrowed time, in Arkham. I don't know if this is merely adding to the back-story, or whether there in fact was a previous series set in this world. The Mayor of Gotham, who we meet just before a TV interview, appears to be a weak and ineffectual man, under the thumb of his psychiatrist, who uses him as a puppet - and we all know who that means. Anyway, the Mayor is dedicating a new city hall on the morrow, as the previous one was destroyed by the Joker (in a previous escapade), and is threatening a strong response to any future costumed capers on the streets of Gotham. We get a scene with Commissioner Gordon and Batman, establishing that there was a major incident involving Arkham in the recent past, and that the Titan drug is still causing trouble. Two formerly minor hoodlums have been monstered-up on Titan and have been sent to attack the city hall ceremony by a mysterious background character, one `Doc', the identity of whom we readers, of course, already suspect.Read more ›
