Violence erupts in the streets of Gotham as the Suicide Squad takes on the Caped Crusader in Batman: Arkham Knight #8. Peter J. Tomasi unleashes Harley Quinn and her deadly gang in an exhilarating issue that never lets up. Artists Julio Ferreira and Ig Guara assault our eyes with penetrating images inspired by Tomasi’s powerful narrative.
The Suicide Squad comes to town for their latest assignment in Batman: Arkham Knight #8. Who do they have their eyes set upon? None other than Gotham City’s favorite son: Bruce Wayne!
Issue #8 of the digital first comic is rated T+ for Teen Plus. It contains violence, gore, profanity, and frightening and intense scenes. If readers are used to PG-13 movies, there’s really nothing more here than what we see onscreen in those.
Batman: Arkham Knight #8 is filled from start to finish with explosive excitement and nonstop action. Just like the game, the comic features many different characters all intertwined in mysterious goings-ons. It comes as no surprise that Harley Quinn and the Suicide Squad figure into the tale considering their popularity right now. Although I'm not a fan of the present incarnation of Joker's girlfriend, I can overlook her presence because of everything else going on around her. If you love the video game and are looking for an extension to that world outside of your console, this comic will fulfill your wish.
Batman: Arkham Knight #8 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
