While Batman: Arkham Knight isn't going to hit your home consoles until June 2015, fans can find out about the new character for this game, whom has never appeared in comics before: Arkham Knight.

Entertainment Weekly exclusively announced the news about one of the biggest video game franchises, which has been kicking butt since 2009.

The book, which will be available digitally on February 24th, 2015, will be written by Peter Tomasi (BATMAN AND ROBIN) and will feature the art of Viktor Bogdanovic (REALITY CHECK) and inker Art Thibert (ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN). Dan Panosian will be doing the covers for the series.

The comic will pick up right where the game Arkham City left off. The city prison is shut down and the Joker is dead. Batman questions whether or not Gotham needs him.

The comic will be available on February 24th, 2015 and the game will be available on June 2, 2015.
