Thanks to Dr. Crane a.k.a. The Scarecrow the Narrows section of Gotham is closed off from the rest of the city, but some of its former inhabitants, which had resided at Arkham Asylum, have made their way in the city. Batman is hunting them down while trying to deal with other major crime forces, like dirty land developers, hired hit men, and Russian mobsters. With the assistance of his trusty butler Alfred and Lucius Fox CEO of Wayne Enterprises who also happened to design most of his bat toys, he’s doing more than his fair share.
Entertaining and filled with action any Batman fan would dig right into. Yet it’s filled with enough information someone who’d never heard of Batman would be able to catch on quickly. The villains are abundant, but there are good guys too. Batman: Gotham Knight was all in all a good read.

The Caped Crusader returns in this prequel to the Warner Bros. blockbuster film—The Dark Knight. After Wayne Manor is burned to the ground, Bruce Wayne establishes a new base of operations, and— as Batman—refines his personal vigilante mission, encountering foes both old and new.
