The miniseries that leads you into the video game comes to its dramatic conclusion. The die is cast and the criminal gulag known as Arkham City is now in place. But even with its imposing walls and security measures, is anyone in Gotham City really going to feel safe with a legion of criminals living next door? Batman's determined to enter the belly of the beast and find out just who is pulling the strings.

    As mentioned,, issue #5 doesn't conclude so much as pave the way for the Arkham City game. That's to be expected, but it is somewhat unsatisfying to leave the story where it ends knowing that resolution won't come before another two months of waiting and $60. It doesn't help that Dini writes numerous splash pages towards the end, further rushing the book along towards its murky conclusion. Still, as a complete product, this series does a much better job of hyping the game than anyone had a right to expect. Read Full Review
