A weekly, original digital series based on the video games BATMAN: ARKHAM ASYLUM and BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY, each 10-page chapter ties directly in to the continuity of the game and follows your favorite characters through the bedlam.  And don’t forget that the first ARKHAM digital comic series –BATMAN: ARKHAM CITY – is now available as a collected hard cover. UNCHARTED -- The critically acclaimed and best-selling PlayStation 3 video game jumps onto the comic page, featuring an all-new action-packed story written by Joshua Williamson (SUPERMAN/BATMAN) with fantastic covers by the legendary Tony Harris. It's just in time for the newly released Uncharted #3: Drake's Deception. DIABLO -- From the world and legends of Sanctuary, the setting for the award-winning Diablo video game, comes the tale of a hero's birth. Jacob has fled from his homeland in the north, hunted by his kinsmen for the crime of murder. Led by the visions of an ancient prophet, pursued by his childhood friend, Jacob finds his destiny in a desert cave at the foot of a mountain carved in two by the sword of an archangel. If you can't wait for next year's new Diablo game, the comic series will hold you over.

END OF NATIONS -- This comic is based on the highly anticipated MMORTS game from Trion Worlds. Following a global economic collapse, the repressive Order of Nations has taken control.
