The Penultimate issue of ‘Death of the Family’ opens with prison guards dressed as Batman and Joker dancing in Arkham cells. These are the guards with no family members for Joker to threaten, so they are forced to stay in the asylum as part of what Joker calls his ‘Royal Dance Macabre.’ If you’ll recall, The Black Glove’s redecoration of Arkham in R.I.P. was also referred to as a ‘Dance Macabre.’ It’s the first challenge Batman faces in this maze of horror that Joker has created, and the next in line…

Derek Fridolfs has been a busy person, writing a digital exclusive for DC Comics that releases once a week. Batman: Arkham Unhinged bridges events inside both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, as well as adding to the events in the game as well. IGN caught up with Fridolfs and tried to learn a little more about the digital series.
IGN: Can you start by telling us a little bit about Arkham Unhinged and where it fits into the Arkham Asylum/Arkham City…

Batman: Arkham City is the long hyped follow up release to Batman Arkham Asylum. That game saw Batman trapped in the famous mad house trying to prevent the Joker from over running the Asylum and Gotham itself with titan (a derivative based off of Bane's Venom formula). In the game you fight your way through a host of Batman's villain foes to finally fight a beefed up super Joker. After taking him out you leave him on the…

So today is the day that Batman: Arkham City hits North America, and although fans around the world will also soon have their copies of the game, there may be some people still on the fence about buying the game (but I haven't heard of one, yet). So I wanted to run through some of the great reasons to but the game and stay up all night playing the game.

Big thank you to Dustin, and everyone at TheBatmanUniverse.net for two tickets to see Batman: Live at my chosen venue, The Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow on August the 3rd of this year, which was the opening night, for Batman: Live here in Glasgow.
Batman: Live is the retelling of the origin of Dick Grayson, from boyhood acrobat, to the boy wonder. A classic story that anyone who has seen the movie “Batman Forever” can tell you about, so it was certainly a mighty task…

When the news was announced that all of the DC Universe titles were being renumbered to one, everyone shared mixed emotions. Time has moved on from then and more news and has been shown. One of the things more recently to appear was the logos for both Detective Comics and Batman.
Everyone who has followed the Bat-books or comics in general over the years, knows that logos that appear on the cover change periodically to mark a change. It could be a new creative team, new editor, new storyline. With new number ones, logos are a sure bet.
