Batman: Arkham City Prequel Available Now

First issue of DC Comics' Batman: Arkham Unhinged comic book series available to buy now.

There is good news today for all Batman: Arkham City fans, as DC Comics have released the first issue of Batman: Arkham Unhinged, a brand new comic book series, which collates all of the short stories penned for Rocksteady's powerhouse Arkham City video game. The first story arc collects the first three issues of the digital exclusive comic written by Derek Fridolfs with the help of Rocksteady Studios, and follows Hugo Strange as he attempts to capture Two-Face, Batman and Catwoman, and imprison them in Arkham City. The arc forms the prologue to Catwoman's DLC in the game. Here's the official low-down on the series from DC themselves:
Spinning directly out of the hit video game BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, this new series explores the world behind the game in stories focusing on both heroes and villains and how they came to their roles in ARKHAM CITY. A prequel to the game created with the developer, Rocksteady, this first issue features content previously available only as a digital release and explores the Catwoman/Two-Face rivalry and how it leads them into the clutches of Hugo Strange.
You can buy issue one which promises to be packed full of full-frontal feline action, as well as a good dose of Two Face now for $2.99, or if you prefer the digital route, the entire series is available to download from Comixology now.
