It's copyrighted material...someone who is stupid enough to scan them and post them HERE, the OFFICIAL FORUMS of all places, deserves to be banned and possibly locked away.

Um, the comic is free to download if you have a PSP and it was a free bonus to those who pre-ordered through Amazon.com. I don't really think anyone would have a meltdown over some scans posted here of a free publication. OPM is copyrighted, yet there are review scans somewhere buried here that were never removed and the TC never banned. relax. Its all good.

Something free is not the same as something you have to buy. This is just an exclusive to both those who own a PSP and those who chose Amazon as their vendor. Unless they make this comic available to purchase, I can't see that posting scans is wrong. If they offer this prequel comic for sale, I will be among the first to pay for it, but until that time arrives I too look forward to someone posting scans of their Amazon.com prize online.

Apparently the universe will collapse in on itself if scans are uploaded.

It would seem so. I know there are countless people who ordered through amazon.com, but perhaps they are too enamored with playing the game then posting scans of a 16 page comic that might not be as big a deal as I hope it to be.

Just because something is included for free with something else doesn't mean that item is no longer copyrighted and is thus exempt from illegally distributing copies of it. If you were to make an ISO image of a free promotional DVD disc that came with a movie you bought & then posted it on the movie studios on forums, then I'm sure they'll at least ask you kindly to remove it. Just because it's on paper doesn't mean it's no longer considered property & doesn't deserve the same rights & protection under the law that all other copyrighted properties benefit from.

You better tell that to the internet and youtube. Stop the preaching.

I have the comic its like the size of the manual for the game. The comic itself is very disappointing I think. Its 12 pages and only about 4 of them talk about what the joker did to get caught by batman so he would bring him back to Arkham.Then its mentions tips batman got about where Zsasz and scarecrow are.Basically they all got arrested to go along with jokers plan is how I read it.The Joker did have a bomb when he enters the mayors office or city hall not sure which it is hence why he said hes got a bomb in the batmobile on the way to arkham I don't have a scanner so I cant post it sry folks.If u have any questions feel free to ask I will answer as best as I can

Thanks, probably not even worth the time to scan it. Hence why it was FREE.

Unfortunately like me, most people choose free shipping which takes awhile. Mine shipped out Monday and should be here today or tomorrow. If no one has scanned it by then, i will do the honors.

You know, I specifically remember in the Gametrailers special someone being interviewed and stacks of that comic were being prepared behind him. However, this comic was full sized, it was not a manual size. Btw they were in a comic store. So...where are those? Anyone go to a comic shop and see those on the shelves? Anyone?
