This May you can find out what happened in the time between Batman: Arhham Asylum, and Batman: Arkham City thanks to a new 6-issue comic book series which will be written by Paul Dini – writer of Batman: The Animated Series and Batman: Arkham Asylum, and will be penned by Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham Asylum concept artist Carlos D’anda.
Each issue will be available day-and-date digitally worldwide for $2.99. These will alternate with digital-first interludes for $0.99 that have eight pages in which to expand on the comic series story, and will later be included in print in the Batman: Arkham City collected edition
“The digital first stories offer a unique incentive for fans to experience interesting and exciting stories beyond the pages in the printed comic,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher, “The additional pages will serve as interludes within the regular issues and won’t be necessary to follow the main story of the mini-series. Fans will also be able to read these interludes in print later, when we publish the collected edition.”
Keep an eye out for a special variant cover of the first issue as well which will use concept art from Batman: Arkham City.
The first two issue’s will be available in May.
