For Batman and comic-book fans alike, Warner Bros. Interactive have announced that DC will be releasing a mini-series set between the events of Batman: Arkham Asylum and the hotly anticipated Batman: Arkham City, written by Paul Dini and pencilled by Carlos D’anda, both of whom worked directly on both games.
BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY picks up one year after the original game, where former Arkham Warden turned newly elected Mayor of Gotham City Quincy Sharp has decided to close down the infamous institution. In its stead, he establishes “Arkham City,” the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.

Set inside the heavily fortified walls of a sprawling district in the heart of Gotham City, inmates can roam free and do whatever they want as long as they don’t try to escape. To run this urban prison, Sharp has appointed Dr. Hugo Strange, a man who knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman.
The run will be six issues long and will be made available "day-and-date digitally worldwide for US$2.99 each", and will also alternate with "digital first interludes", 8-page mini stories that focus on the villains vying for power within Arkham City and will come in at US$0.99.

"The digital first stories offer a unique incentive for fans to experience interesting and exciting stories beyond the pages in the printed comic,” said Jim Lee, DC Comics Co-Publisher via press release. “The additional pages will serve as interludes within the regular issues and won’t be necessary to follow the main story of the miniseries. Fans will also be able to read these interludes in print later, when we publish the collected edition.”

Sounds pretty awesome to me and in true comic-book collector style, apparently there'll be an issue #1 cover variant using in-game visuals. In the meantime, click here for a peek at the art for said issue.
