Gotham Knights is getting a six issue prequel comic, and reading it will unlock in-game skins

If you want to know a little bit more about the state of a world where Bruce Wayne is (supposedly) dead, and its up to his wards to protect Gotham from the seedy underbelly of the crime world, you may want to make a note of Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded City – a prequel comic coming from Evan Narcisse (Gen: LOCK, Rise of the Black Panther), and ABEL (Harley Quinn).
