Library JournalCollecting 15 digital-first prequel chapters to 2011’s Batman: Arkham City video game, this title finds Batman caught in a battle between Catwoman and Two-Face and the Penguin having Joker problems. Meanwhile, Dr. Hugo Strange operates in the background, waging a covert war against the caped crusader and his sidekicks. A solid group of artists and writers strengthen this anthology, which—at times—reads more like marketing material advertising Batman’s array of in-game gadgets.
Verdict While not an essential Batman purchase, the popularity of the video game series makes this a good choice for libraries. Readers who haven’t played the game will still find this an accessible collection.—Terry Bosky, Madison, WI
