Did you love Batman Arkham City? Did you blast through the storyline? Collect all the collectables? Unlock all the unlockables? If you just can’t get enough of the latest award-winning Batman video game, then you should probably pick up Batman: Arkham Unhinged. It’s a prequel to the video game, and goes into the roles of the heroes and villains. According to DC Comics the comic book is:
A prequel to the game created with the developer, Rocksteady, this first issue features content previously available only as a digital released and explores the Catwoman/Two-Face rivalry and how it leads them into the clutches of Hugo Strange.
I did love the game, I did like the story line. With so many Batman books out now (five), I’m not sure if I’m ready to add another one that was created with the company that also created the video game. DC already has a lot of competition for any of my extra money with so many great indie books being released. I feel like if they had some bigger names involved (Paul Dini, for instance… he did help with the video game story line right?) with the creation, this Batman comic book would distinguish itself from just another chance for the video game to get some extra exposure, and make some more money.
Unless I read an outstanding review somewhere, I’m probably going to pass on this one. If you decide you want to pick it up, and for some reason you don’t know where your local comic book shop is, just click on this: Batman: Arkham Unhinged #1 and let Amazon.com do the work.
