    Peter Tomasi continues toweave an interesting origin story for the Arkham Knight, blending it seamlesslywith what we know from the video game while paying some homage to the original Death In the Family comic book story.This issue reads a little thin since so much of it is given over to starkdepictions of violence and torture, which to be fair isn't something you reallywant to cover with a "Meanwhile" caption box. It was just a surprise; eventhough there has been violence in the first two issues of this comic, this wasa little over-the-top. Still a good issue, and it definitely makes you feel alittle more sympathy for that shrill asshole that plagues you forthree-quarters of the video game. Read Full Review

    This issue goes over the events most fans of Batman will know from earlier comics or the Batman: Arkham Knight video game, but this is as nice and compelling a summary as one is likely to get.
