DC Comics' official prequel comic for Batman: Arkham Knight keeps plugging right along, telling the tale of the Joker's missing body, his last will and testament, the origins of the new Batmobile and Bruce Wayne's ongoing mission to use his fame and money (as well as his abilities as Batman) to make real change in Gotham City.

But despite what seems like a successful start to Commissioner James Gordon's campaign for the office of mayor, it's a safe bet that it's Batman who'll be needed to deal with Bane, newly escaped — again — from Arkham Asylum.

Courtesy of DC Comics, we've got this four page preview (plus cover) for Batman: Arkham Knight #14, from the talents of writer Mike W. Barr and artist Jim Aparo. Here's the official summary:

One of Batman's deadliest enemies is back and more powerful than ever! That's right—it's Bane, who's now leading a small army of followers! Can the Dark Knight stop this brilliant behemoth from claiming Gotham City as his own?"
