The Batman Arkham storyline is probably one of the most successful for the superhero in decades. Following the style, story, and drama from the hit video game series, Arkham Unhinged takes the reigns of becoming one of my favorite Batman story arcs of all time. However, it’s not Batman himself that is the main character but Gotham. Throughout the 20 issues, you slowly watch the entire city crumble into chaos and almost become apocalyptic. Batman has more on his shoulders than he can juggle, and everyone power in Gotham that can stop this madness is also falling into the hypnotic trance that is Arkham City. Batman actually feels powerless in this series which is a nice mix-up compared to most superhero comics.
There’s actually not as much action as you would like in a Batman comic here, but fans of the game series will love the constant back and forths between Arkham City, Gotham, and all the characters within. Honestly, this is one of my favorite comic series, and Batman and game fans alike will dig this.
