The series will be written by Peter J. Tomasi with art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Art Thibert and covers by Dan Panosian. The first issue of the print edition, on sale March 11, will include two variant covers- one by Gary Frank and another featuring art from the game.

"Fans of the award-winning and bestselling game series, including previous releases Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, know the Joker is dead and Arkham City is closed," reads DC's announcement. "As a new day begins, Bruce Wayne finds himself in devastating pain, recovering from his injuries and questioning whether his role as Batman is still necessary to the city’s survival. But as the sun rises in Gotham City, dangerous new threats emerge from the shadows…and the Arkham Knight is just beginning. This in-continuity prequel comic set prior to the events of the brand-new video game Batman: Arkham Knight is a must-read!"
