    Arkham Knight: Genesis continues to be a worthy companion to the game. It fleshes out a relationship that probably should have been more of a focus in the first place, while tossing in a healthy blend of superhero action for good measure. Read Full Review

    While I found the first issue to be significantly more emotionally layered and plot driven, the second issue of BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT: GENESIS doesjustenough to keep me engaged with the story. I will definitely be picking up issue #3, as I expect it to find the right balance of retrospecting and advancing the plot forward. Ultimately, this series is focusing on the tragic relationship of Bruce Wayne and Jason Todd, which so far, they have nailed. Jason Todd's death is Batman's greatest defeat, and fleshing out the origins of the two is something I find to be remarkably compelling. Read Full Review

    There's nothing specificallywrong with this comic, the art and plotting are done with expertise. I just wouldn'texpect this issue to grab anybody's attention without prior interest in theArkhamverse. We do get some more insight into Jason Todd's motivations andlearn about his time as Robin, to find that he really is a selfish littlewhiner. I think that was the point: the murderous Arkham Knight is, in fact, adejected little boy. But damn, dude. That's what they made beer for. Read Full Review

    There is a lot of interesting information about the background of the Arkham Knight in this issue. That's also a weakness as it's not a whole lot more than that.
