DC’s ‘Batman: Arkham Origins’ MultiVerse Graphic Novel App: Choosing The Wrong Adventure

BATMAN- ARKHAM ORIGINS - A DC Comics MultiVerse Graphic Novel
DC Comics

Yesterday DC Comics launched its new Batman: Arkham Origins - A DC Comics MultiVerse Graphic Novel app, which serves as a choose-your-own-adventure style motion comic prequel to WB Games Montreal's video game of the same name. Befitting of its status as a video game tie-in, this is a "freemium" experience. You download a free 8-page setup before reaching a fork in the narrative road and pay more (it's being serialized, you see) for the full range of story content as it's released. As a bonus, readers who pay to read halfway through the story get a code to unlock a new playable skin in the Origins game. Those who pay for a season pass get the first skin, plus an additional costume for Batman to wear.

In an interview with Wired, Hank Kanalz, SVP of Integrated Publishing at DC Comics, characterized the effort as an experiment. Financially, this model could prove to be a success -- especially with its downloadable content (DLC) incentives for hardcore gamers. Creatively? So far it leaves something to be desired.

Colleen Coover Brings Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl to ‘Batman ’66′, One Of The Best Drawn Bat-Books In Years

Batman '66 Batgirl Colleen Coover Eartha Kitt Catwoman

It just was only last week that we got word that actress Yvonne Craig had signed a licensing agreement with DC Comics parent Warner Bros. to allow the production and sale of new merchandise and other products -- the first in literally decades -- based on her likeness as Batgirl, one of the most beloved figures from the great Batman television series of the 1960s. It would seem that preparations were well underway before the announcement, because today DC has confirmed the first appearance of Craig's Batgirl in the pages of its startlingly good comics series Batman '66. On sale this week, the story will be written by the book's ongoing writer Jeff Parker and feature artwork by ComicsAlliance favorite Colleen Coover, who joins cover artist Michael Allred and storytellers Jonathan Case, Joe Quinones and Ty Templeton in making Batman '66 one of the very best looking Bat-books DC has published in years.
