Sort order. May 19, Anne rated it it was ok Shelves: I just feel drained after reading this. It's not the worst thing ever, and parts of it are almost passable. Also, considering it's a video game spin-off?
It definitely could have been even lamer than it was. But not by much. Still, it was a snooze-fest. I'll sleep when I'm dead, Alfred. There are no cheat codes and no extra life. It's game over. Killer Croc: I'll find Batman and feast on his bones!
But first No Ugh. Tweedle Die. The fuck?! Kid Shark Seriously?!
Ok, I don't play these games or any games , but I understand the basic plot. And I'm pretty sure, after watching my kids get all shrivelly and allergic to the sun over the years, that I understand how these games work. At the very least, it looks incredibly cool. Why DC feels the need to put out these dorky companion comics is just beyond my comprehension. If someone who has never read a comic wants to get into Batman because they've played the game, then this is the last title you want them to dive into.
Right now, Batman titles are rocking DC's world. There is quite literally no need for this shit. No offense to Tomasi. I'm sure he did the best he could.
Not really. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a digital copy. Get this review and more at: View all 13 comments. The Joker is dead! But as a new day begins in Gotham City, Dangerous new threats emerge and, Bruce Wayne still recovering from his injuries after his fight with The Joker must tend to them. This graphic novel was absolutely wonderful to read; action, one-liners, The Joker in a way , Harley Quinn, The Penguin, great art…etc.
Batman must fight terrible villains The Joker shows is face in a recorded testamente, demanding his body be returned to Harley Qu The Joker is dead! The Joker shows is face in a recorded testamente, demanding his body be returned to Harley Quinn Harley is looked up, but Bats, breaks her out to save Gordon's life when he is poisoned.
So she promise him that, she is a changed girl and tells him where the cure is and everything of course goes to hell. Harley Quinn changed? Instead she align herself with The Penguin I do ship odd couples, but Harley smooching The Penguin, no thank you. Then Fox has some problem In Germany The Twins are back! So, that is some of the stuff that went on in this graphic novel. Loved it, looking forward to reading more.
Thank you! View 2 comments. Jan 11, C. Drews rated it really liked it Shelves: Except I was reading it on a library website which kept going ballistic on me and I missed a few pages towards the end and braving the site for Vol 2 ain't happening imminently.
This is my first Batman comic and it was. Batman is my favourite. He's the only reason I'm okay with DC existing, tbh. And this comic was so so dark. Sure he went down and made mistakes and bled.
But he made awesome moves and decisions and I just I really enjoyed it. Plus the art is creepy, okay?! Also there is this twist of this guy dressed up as Batman going and killing people Batman has left for the police. But Batman doesn't know this.
So the police think Batman is being an executioner, but that's fake-Batman. I really want to know how that goes in the next comic. Also this was the first time I'd seen Harley Quinn in action. Batman is an idiot to think that a few tears mean you're sane and kind. More backstory. I was confused about a few things. It's adorably wonderful. Alfred, you are everything. View 1 comment. May 19, Sh3lly rated it liked it Shelves: Batman is struggling to balance his day job as Bruce Wayne and his superhero gig as Batman.
The Joker is dead, but is still causing mischief from beyond the grave. Penguin or is it Mr. Cobblepot and his henchmen, Mr.
Hammer and Captain Sickle, are eager to fill in the void The Joker left. Well, parts of this was really enjoyable, but other parts were not so great, in my view. I'm not sure what is going on with this Kid Shark character - Joker's son?
There's also a mystery character dressed in some type of armor killing criminals. I wasn't sure what the deal was there. Overall, parts of this was fun to read, but it was also hard to follow in other sections. Harley Quinn was probably my favorite. I received a digital copy of this from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!!! May 18, Chris rated it liked it Shelves: Well, this was a decent Batman story, and a good way to kill a couple of dead hours this afternoon.
I guess it's supposed to tie in to the new Arkham Knight game, but since I don't play these things, I missed any direct references to that. Still, a Batman story.
Not as good as some of the Scott Snyder penned recent Batman titles that I've read, but worth the time nonetheless. I did struggle with some of the assumed Bat-lore knowledge one would expect from a hard core fan. But then, I'm only a passing fan of the Bat at best. Once more, Snyder handled this better in his works.
Am I interested in continuing? Probably not, unless I got another free copy. May 13, Steve rated it really liked it Shelves: I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. Review will be posted after the book is published and the review embargo is lifted on Jun 16, I'm not familiar with any of the Arkham video games, so the part of the story that ties it to the games is lost on me.
Overall, the story was good, and it had the feel of the old 60s TV Batman, especially the way the villains and bad-guys join forces against Batman, and the way said v I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.
Overall, the story was good, and it had the feel of the old 60s TV Batman, especially the way the villains and bad-guys join forces against Batman, and the way said villains' plans always seem to fail because they can't work together for very long.
This isn't a bad thing, and definitely works for the storyline here. The artwork is very good, and provides a definitive separation between Gotham in the daytime and Gotham at night. Oct 27, StoryTellerShannon rated it liked it Shelves: Amidst it all Batman must deal with Gotham tearing itself apart.
Jun 16, Sam Quixote rated it did not like it. The combat is so much fun, I play the challenge mode in City to this day! Also, how does Gordon get infected with Joker toxin but lives for 20 minutes after? Tweedle Die! Not very inspired. And of course the Abramovici twins, Mr Hammer and Captain Sickle awful, awful names even by superhero standards! Saving Gordon from Joker toxin, exploring New Blackgate, driving the pimped out new Batmobile, and aerial mini-boss battles?
Again, fun to do in a game, boring to read in a comic. The artist, Viktor Bogdanovic, draws some of the moves Batman pulls in the game - the slide, leaping from the Batmobile - and the airdropped Batsuit from City makes a reappearance. Eh… ok. Peter J. The appeal of the games is the gameplay and how do you communicate that in a non-interactive medium? View all 7 comments.

Review to be posted once the review embargo is lifted on the day of release. Mar 18, Batastrophe rated it liked it Shelves: I don't play video games. I know this is tied to the Batman games or something, but I don't play them and know pretty much nothing about them. So, I had no context for this going in.
That being said Was it supposed to be a mystery? Other reviewers were acting like it was meant to be a mystery. To me, it's perfectly obvious and you're supposed to know who it is the whole time. At least that's how I read it. I actually found it pretty enjoyable hone So I actually found it pretty enjoyable honestly, but I can see how annoying this would be if you didn't know who the Arkham Knight is. I think all the fun in reading the portions he's in comes from knowing who he is, so not knowing makes it kinda silly Anyways, overall this was a fine solid Batman story, but nothing life changing.
I really enjoyed Bruce and Alfred in it, though Tim seemed a bit superfluous. Honestly, I mainly picked it up because Tomasi wrote it, and he's by far my favorite Bat-writer. But I think Tomasi shines brightest when given the opportunity to write character-driven stories, and this was not that. There were a few good interactions between characters that stood out to me, but the overall plot was pretty standard.
May 19, Ryan Stewart rated it liked it Shelves: The Arkham series works well for the games but it's really missed for me with the tie-in comics.
There is nothing necessarily wrong with this but it's just way, way, way down the list of Batman titles worth your time and money. Also, if you haven't played all the games, then definitely stay away because it assumes you know a lot about the Arkham universe going in. May 26, Maxine Marsh rated it liked it Shelves: Finally DC has approved my Netgalley request! Batman is my favorite, so excited: Dec 07, Starlah rated it it was amazing Shelves: And while Bruce Wayne is recovering from his injuries, new dangers torment Gotham City.
This was great! Beautiful art, lots of action, great one-liners, all the villains, etc. Jul 25, Thomas Salerno rated it it was amazing Shelves: Arkham Knight is the graphic novel prequel to the recent video game of the same name.
While I had serious issues with various elements of the game's story indeed, I was downright disappointed by some of Rocksteady Studios' creative decisions , I thoroughly enjoyed this comic tie-in. I have not read any comics by writer Peter J. Tomasi before this, but it is clear from this book at least, that he definitely has a handle on how to write an awesome Batman story.
His command of the of the to Batman: His command of the of the tone, the lore, and the characters is nearly flawless. Even without the game, this tie-in makes an entertaining Batman story in its own right. Although, If you're not very familiar with the story and lore of the Batman: Arkham games, you may not enjoy this book as much. Fans of Batman: We'll assume you're ok with this, but you can opt-out if you wish.
