Batman: Arkham Knight is supposed to be released on consoles on June 2015, but before that the game studio is planning for the release of a comic book version of the game likely to be released on February, 2015.
The series will be written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Art Thibert and covers by Dan Panosian. The first issue of the print edition, on sale March 11, will include two variant covers- one by Gary Frank and another featuring art from the game.
Fans of the award-winning and bestselling game series, including previous releases Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, know the Joker is dead and Arkham City is closed. As a new day begins, Bruce Wayne finds himself in devastating pain, recovering from his injuries and questioning whether his role as Batman is still necessary to the city’s survival. But as the sun rises in Gotham City, dangerous new threats emerge from the shadows…and the Arkham Knight is just beginning. This in-continuity prequel comic set prior to the events of the brand-new video game Batman: Arkham Knight is a must-read!
The story-line follows after Batman: Arkham City. After Joker died and Arkham City prison complex was closed, Batman doubted that Gotham might need him again. But with the arrival of Arkham Knight in the city, Batman had to postpone his retirement. The Scarecrow returns to the city and Batman faces an ultimate threat. The Scarecrow unites all the major villains into a squad including Two-Face, Penguin and Harley Quinn to put the Dark Knight into a grave.
The comic book will be available in stores from 24th of February, 2015
