    Even if you're not following or a fan of the video game these are solid early adventure stories for both Harley and Batgirl. They're both fantastic and feel like they belong in the Batman: The Animated Series. Plus it's a one-shot so it's done in one fun! Read Full Review

    Overall that was a great single issue that helps expand the Arkham-verse and I hope that DC continues to expand the universe and focuses on the other characters. Read Full Review

    Tim Seeley delivers two perfectly enjoyable tales that show a strong understanding of each character's psychology. Neither origin revision diverges significantly from the norm, but why fix what isn't broken. Read Full Review

    Like most tales told in the "Arkhamverse," you know the major beats that will be hit, but it's still great to see them presented in exciting new ways. This one-shot is very easy to jump into and does some great fan service by filling in some story gaps the games have yet to explore. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Jay Yaws Feb 10, 2016

    Unnecessary, sure, and at this point I'm kind of tired of reading about the Arkham Knight universe, but as a standalone issue it isn't terrible. Getting a better look at Batgirl's place in this world is nice, but everything still feels derivative of other, better stories rather than one that will stand on its own. Read Full Review

    This doesn't really add anything of particular interest to either the Arkham line of tales or the characters in general. It's a well known story decently executed, but that's about it.
