My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
“Oh No” is something that I wouldn’t usually say when reading a comic but this time I did… that is when I had finished, I wanted more you see!
With its gloriously vibrant colours mixed with a dark storyline this is another great offering from DC Entertainment which will immerse you. From Alfred’s snarky comments on Bruce’s behaviour to the taunting and goading from Gotham’s less morally compassed foes.
The story is set prior to Arkham Knight and gives us an insight into the cat and mouse relationship between Batman and his nemesis, and how it develops into the infamous ongoing dual for good over evil, where it seems one cannot live without the other.
This novel contains some excellent and exclusive artwork and the hardback is a true keepsake to fans of the game series.
Thanks to DC Entertainment and NetGalley for the ARC of this book in return for my review.
