I actually like all of the episodes, the whole series in fact...Because its rare that I play a game even well after a year plus has a nice side series, its a very cool thing (for me) to still be served with "fan service" about the game. love the game, love the comic series.

That's cool. I think the idea of having a comic based of the game is cool, but I just didn't feel the stories were that great, but to each their own.

I really enjoyed the Arkham City Sirens issue that we got last month. I would say that out of all the Comics that came out out of a videogame this may be the best. Is this Snyder's Batman? No of course not. But I think it is good fun!

I'm glad you liked it, but the reviews I have heard on the issues currently coming out in hard copy have been rather bad. I know the recent fair before Traviss' run was awful, and even Traviss' stuff is far from great.

Anyway though, it is always nice, on some level, to see a Batman book has a fanbase.

(laughs about somethingsomething) That's quite possible.

I need to research how the digital first series are selling. It is a bit difficult to figure since they are sold separately and then later in solid form, so I am not sure what ComicBookResources' sales estimates record. Regardless though, I have seen enough numbers to know that the digital first sales are not insignificant.

@BatWatch: Alright, that's what I had heard about it.

The way I see it, the series sells because it has "Batman: Arkham somethingsomething" on the title, so DC doesn't really care about its quality as long as it sells. Plus, it's a digital series, so that probably puts it even closer to the bottom of their priority list.

i think its pretty good!! the whole shabang, i have red every episode, and gonna keep buyibg them, im a bug fan of the Arkhamverse! While its not as good as the Batman canon its a good sidetrack to read!

Well, to each their own. It did not work for me, but maybe I am being overly cynical. What is your favorite story so far and why?

@SmashBrawler said:

Yeah, I imagined this series wan't going to be too good. Dini's Arkham City miniseries was just okay.

BTW, does this include End Game or was that actually good?

@FatihBATMAN said:

Good question

I didn't look at End Game in particular. In fact, I have not read most of these books, but I have looked at several reviews of them by people I trust. I wanted to include that tidbit in the main article, but when I try to fit too many details in an OP, people stop reading. From what I understand, End Game was just okay.

The series should just get cancelled, there's just no more story you could get out of it.

If they had a plot set for the next game in the franchise, they could do a lot to set up for it and fill in the gaps between now and then, but I am sure they do not want to give any writers liberty to explain what happens after the game until the story for the next game set in stone.

I mentioned liking "The Slough of Despond" but it is beginning to fill like it is just stalling.
