Preview: It’s Robin vs. Deathstroke in BATMAN: ARKHAM KNIGHT – GENESIS #2

Never cross a Boy Wonder. Thoug Robin seems to have a particularly tough go of it in Gotham City, Batman’s sidekick can still pack a punch. And that’s exactly what he’s doing in the opening pages of Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis #2. The prequel comic to this summer’s hit game Batman: Arkham Knight made a splash with its debut with a combination of brutal beatdowns and dynamic storytelling, and issue #2 proves that it wasn’t a flash in the pan.

Writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Alison Borges work together to create a grisly ballet of thundering blows and unfettered fisticuffs as Robin battles it out with Deathstroke. Add in a hearty helping of Nightwing, Arkham Knight, and the Scarecrow and you have a must-read second issue. So make like the Arkham Knight and skulk your way down to our gallery below to get a sneak peek at DC Comics’ Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis #2.
