    It's been a year since The Joker took over Arkham, and Gotham is still trying to get back to normal in this all-new, 5-issue miniseries bridging the gap between the hit videogame Batman: Arkham Asylum and the exciting, upcoming sequel, Batman: Arkham City! And now, an attack by a pair of super-powered twins increases the threat level and triggers Gotham City's new mayor to call for drastic measures.

    Former warden Quincy Sharp outlines his plans for Arkham City with the aid of his psychiatrist while Batman attempts to protect the new city hall from former Two-Face henchmen T&T.

Set between Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, we will discover how things got so bad in Gotham.The Good Batman: Arkham City is a highly anticipated video game. The idea that Gotham will be partially turned into a block off prison for inmates is pretty drastic, even for a Batman story.
