Batman: Arkham Knight Artbook & Novels

We’ve known about the art book for quite a while now, but have been waiting to get more details before posting about it. Unfortunately, it seems that information is not forthcoming, so with the change in release date and the listing of tie-in novels, we have decided to just go with it.

First, the ‘Art of’ book was originally listed for release during the same week as Arkham Knight. We aren’t sure whether this has actually changed or if the date was just changed by Amazon (you know how fluid these things are by now, we’re sure).

Personally, I can’t wait to see the gorgeous work of Kan Muftic and Carlos D’Anda printed in glossy coffee table book format. I may even buy a coffee table just to display it.

The official novelisation and ‘Riddler’s Gambit’ however cropped up on Amazon this week.
Again, we have no details on these other than a confirmation that they are real and that Marv Wolfman (yes, Marv freaking Wolfman!) is writing the novelisation of the game.

Seriously. Marv. Wolfman. As many older (and well-schooled younger) bat-fans can attest, this is awesome news.

Check out the details that we have and click the titles to preorder below!
