Arkham Origins HC coming

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere so if there's already a topic then the mods can feel free to delete this.

The Arkham Origins tie-in comic is getting a hardcover collected edition. It can be pre-ordered at amazon...

I wonder what sales were like for the comic originally. Can't have been great as they were restricted to iPad and came out months after the game...

I also wonder how this handled the 'choices' that those comics gave.

16 December? Jeez, why couldn't they just put it out now? It's not like it's still ongoing is it?

Regarding the multiple choices, I think there'd be two ways to handle it:
a. Choose just one choice and go with it.
b. Put all the choices in the book, then separate them by telling us to "go to this page if you pick A or B".

Nice that they're actually getting collected together, seeing as though they were never really publicized that well in the first place.

Sweet. Not having an iPad, I was wondering if I'd ever be able to see this. If I'm not mistaken, this is the one that was done as a motion-comic on the iPad, correct?

For those outside the UK, here is the US Amazon link:

Fantastic. 160 pages. Should have all the stories in one volume, I think.

I have the hard cover, but I don't know if I like it. I can understand the multi-choice premise working for the digital version, but it feels very strange as a graphic novel. Either way, it had some great character cameos (like Humpty Dumpty and the Ratcatcher), and shows a more definite way for defining how young and undeveloped Batman was at that time.
