Gotham Knights Prequel Comics Features Batman And In-Game Cosmetics

Seriously people, Batman is dead. He ain't coming back. No Lazarus Pit, no magic, just dead. Well, except for in the six-issue prequel comic for Gotham Knights.

However, there are no question marks about Nightwing's juicy behind, even from the former Boy Wonder's actor, Christopher Sean. Our very own Eric Switzer asked Sean if he thought Nightwing's ass should be bigger, to which he replied, "I'm not a flapjack kind of guy. I do my squats, I've done my lunges.
