It goes without saying that Paul Dini is a huge Batman fan. Well he is penning the Arkham City comic book, and really, I wouldn’t want anyone else to do it. He wrote both Arkham games, and the Animated Series.
The comic will pick up 1 year after Batman: Arkham Asylum took place, and the new mayor decided to create “Arkham City” to hold all the thugs of the city. You’ll be able to digitally download each issue in the mini series for $2.99 each as they come out. These releases will alternate with eight-page digital-first interludes that will expand on the story included in the miniseries. Written by Dini and drawn by a variety of artists, these digital stories will focus on The Dark Knight’s many enemies as they vie for power in this new city within a city. Each eight-page digital-first interlude will be available for .99 cents, releasing in between issues of the mini-series, and will later be included in print in the BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY collectors edition. Look out for issues 1 and 2 launching in May.
