After the end of Rocksteady's fantastic Arkham video game series, we now finally have the Arkham Knight in comic book continuity! So little to say I was interested to see who was the Arkham Knight as he is a cool villain, even though if you played the game, it's very obvious who's under the mask; but since they announced the comic book version would be someone else, I was interested to see who it was. So what did I think?

To start with the pros, this volume did provide a cool Batman & Robin

A few too many groan-worthy twists send this arc spiraling into pointlessness.

And when a villain’s only motivation is to eliminate the Batman, I’m not convinced that “justice” is at stake, nor am I necessarily on Batman’s side. It’s a narrative paradox that would only be interesting if Batman had some self awareness about what he’s doing and why. Tomasi avoids the problem entirely by focusing only on moving the plot forward rather than digging into character psychology or moral conflicts.

- You DO realize I was Batman for quite a while before you came along and held a sword to my throat.
- Yeah, good times.


So much better than the previous arc! Since Batman and Robin Tomasi is one of my favorite Batman writers and now he's again at those levels. He really loves and gets these characters, their interactions and dialogue are perfectly on point.
Needless to say, Walker did a terrific job as he always does.

Basic plot: The Arkham Knight seeks to eliminate the darkness of Gotham in a very literal sense.

The Knight's background story was an interesting one, and her delusion is intense. The story was tightly woven, and it moved along well. It seemed like there was a lot more focus on the villain than the hero here, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It was interesting and the ending indicates that this villain is nowhere near done. The art was good.
