    Here.

    Itís an Eidos game, developed by Rocksteady. Blurb:

    This completely original title explores Gotham Cityís darkest location, the infamous Arkham Asylum. But as a routine prison transfer goes wrong, the Joker sets his demented plan into action and Batman comes face to face with an army of his worst enemies. In a dark and gritty setting reminiscent of Bioshock (with a story co-written by Paul Dini), Arkham Asylum is setting the stage for a true-to-character Batman game.

    Dini's currently fucking up 'Tec. I hate what he's done with the Riddler. Really shit, a real waste. Although the latest few issues were better. However, he knows the universe.

    That looks like a fake second picture, no publication would ever make that text so small(look at the second joker cover, then at the "joker plots the fall of the dark knight" and the "batman prepares for the madness to come" on his foot.

    I call shennanigans, if not then i call for the head of the creative director.

    That's not the game art, is it? Not copying the book art seems a bit daft (unless it's a shameless cash-in, of course).

    Once an eagle taught me courage. And I will never forget that day

    Well the plot of the game is nothing like the book so I reckon they're entirely different things

    It's pretty good fan art if it is. From what i looked at in the current batman comics in the shop at the weekend DC should give that guy a job.

    Innit.

    You 'might' like Gotham After Midnight. Pencilled by Kelley Jones.

    Then again you might think it's shit.

    Paul Dini \o/

    I don't read comics, but I loved the Animated Series, which I understand he worked on.

    I was hoping this would be Theme Hospital, but Arkham Asylum with crazy people instead of Hospital with ill people.

    But.

    Pandemic really is doing Batman as well. Or at least that's what one of the guys there hinted at.

    Aren't they doing the one to tie in with the film, albeit a year late by time it's probably done?

    Pandemic are doing a tie-in with the film which will be released around the same time as the DVD release.

    I quite like the new riddler, having a rival to the Batman is a great idea and having an old villain even better.

    But he's just a joke. Batman pwns him at every turn. It's all gone a bit comedic for my liking. If you read or re-read Dark Knight, Dark City you'll see a Riddler that is for more devious and cunning.

    I was hoping they were rushed botched mockups. That seals it then, GI are a bunch of inept morons who shouldn't be given the honour of divulging info to the masses, wot with them being a clutch of fudds.

    I thought we agreed the art was good?

    I'll never understand you, Spanky.

    I'm talking about the tiny copy they've put on the images. As i said I don't mind the art(although i don't like bat armour, it's wank).
