Review by DanieXJ
This TPB starts with the death of Joker, and Arkham City (from the previous Arkham Unhinged series of TPBs)… let’s go with “closing”) and a lot of the bad guys are back out on the streets of Gotham.Someone new shows up as well (I assume that that’s a much more tied in part of the game). And Batman has to deal with Harley ‘tricks’ that the Joker has left behind.On the negative side the part with Robin was weird. But, then again, the character of Robin in all of these Arkham City/Arkham Unhinged video game tie ins has been problematic in so many different ways (in the first one he was a blonde with a crew cut if I remember correctly), so, I guess that me being confused by Robin in this TPB is par for the course.On the positive side I really, really liked the Lucius/Bruce relationship. Not to mention that Alfred was in rare form. And while we heard Oracle I do wish that’d we’d seen more of her.I got this advanced galley through Netgalley on behalf of DC Entertainment
