    Default Thoughts on the upcoming Batman Arkham Saga Omnibus?

    It's coming out on 9/18 with whopping 1600+ pages! Heard the story is really good! Anyone who is excited about this?

    It's hard (for me at least) to get "excited" about a hardcover collection with a cover-price of $150.00 . . .

    And, by the way, release date for comic book shops and such is this Wednesday, September 12th; the 9/18 date is for regular bookstores like amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

    By the way, did anybody pick this up (or does anybody have it on order from somewhere)?

    Ordered mine today from Tales of Wonder for $78. IST sells it for $75. Picked up the Loeb/Sale omni too but they're cheaper in ToW so I got both books from there.

    $75.00 still doesn't do anything for me.

    I'd rather play the games. I just started a new play-through in Asylum.

    I'd say as game tie-in comics go, the Arkham series were pretty solid, even if they didn't grab attention like Injustice did.

    I enjoyed the Arkhamverse canon before Knight screwed it all up. Firefly only interacted with Batman in Origins by Knight's interact even though there are references and papers talking about him in Asylum and City. Dick and Babs were a thing in the city comics but then she got with Tim in Knight. There's a bunch of weird stuff the later tie-ins did that I'm not a fan of.
