DC Comics has released digital comics based on the Arkham series before, but this one is unique in terms of storytelling, not only tied into the game, but offering a background for the all-new eponymous villain: The Arkham Knight.

The premise of the prequel title continues to grasp the air of originality as the previous installments in the game series, storywise speaking. Written by Peter J. Tomasi (Batman and Robin) with art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Art Thibert, and covers by Dan Panosian. We will dive into a world where The Joker is dead, and the Arkham City prison complex is closed. In a dark place, Bruce Wayne is questioning whether Gotham needs Batman—but new trouble begins to stir, all of it tied to the Arkham Knight.

Arkham Knight #1 will be released on Feb. 24, 2015, and Batman: Arkham Knight game will be launched for next-gen consoles: Playstation 4 and Xbox One on June 2, 2015. The print version of the comic will debut in March 11.
