Following the events of “Trinity War,” Gotham City has lost the protection of the Dark Knight. As the numerous members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery begin to come out of the shadows, each villain realizes that they’re not willing to give up the city they feel rightfully belongs to them now.
It’s Arkham Asylum and Blackgate Prison against Gotham City!
This fall, the world of FOREVER EVIL expands as a Batman-less Gotham serves as the setting for a war that will turn the city inside out. Written by Peter J. Tomasi and illustrated by Scott Eaton and Jaime Mendoza, FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR is a limited 6-issue series that launches next month.
Arkham War is coming.
Spinning out of the events of FOREVER EVIL, FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR finds the inmates of both Arkham Asylum and Blackgate Prison unleashed upon a Batman-less Gotham City. But before you pick up that mini-series, you’ll want to read the Villains Month one-shots starring Scarecrow and Bane, which set the stage for this epic brawl.
