Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth

Man is forced to endure the personal hells of the Joker Scarecrow Poison Ivy Two Face and many other sworn enemies in order to save the innocents and retake the prison During his run through this absurd. This is not your traditional Batman tale Some people won t like it In fact Batman seems like a normal man when confronted by the horrors within and acts in very non Batman ways There s a two part story here where we switch back and forth to the founder of Arkham and why he turned his mansion into a facility for the mad and Batman trying to navigate his way through the madness of Arkham Batman action is minimal This is much of an emotional journey There is distinctive lettering for different characters and massive amounts of symbolism so several things will be missed by the casual reader Think of this as a true nightmare tale for Batman Sometimes the symbolism is a bit much and gets in the way of the tale This graphic novel influenced a video game of a similar title but that one is action based It also influenced Heath Ledger s portrayal of The Joker STORYPLOTTING B minus to B CHARACTERDIALOGUE B to B plus ARTWORK PRESENTATIONPANELS B plus to A minus BATMAN MYTHOLOGYFOCUSES B OVERALL GRADE B to B plus WHEN READ December 2011 revised review end of April 2013

Read Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth

Gauntlet the Dark Knight's must face down both his most dangerous foes and his inner demonsThis is the critically acclaimed Batman story that helped launch the US careers of Grant Morrison and Dave McKea. Based solely upon his 2006 2013 run Grant Morrison might be the greatest Batman writer of all time But he wasn t always so brilliant as his first Batman book the mega selling Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth shows The inmates have overrun the asylum and are holding civilians hostage With Joker running free with a knife Batman goes into the asylum to stop him and enters a nightmarish netherworld Meanwhile the troubled life of the asylum s founder Amadeus Arkham is explored The story is one long rambling mess which is part of Morrison s intent It s designed to be dream like and to read like a song and therefore as a comic it s difficult to follow or really understand I get the impression the symbolism of the tarot is important but the book didn t make me interested enough to want to pursue a deeper understanding of it Batman s characterisation is a bit off too how was he beaten by a deranged doctor Some readers might scoff that Morrison s comics are always like this with his drug use but he actually wrote this before he began using drugs and alcohol he writes in his afterword that he stayed up for hours on end to achieve the altered state of consciousness he wanted before sitting down to write So it s official with or without drugs Morrison writes weird comics Hear that poseur artists you don t need vice to produce art Dave McKean s artwork matches Morrison s bizarre story well but it still looks a bit too avant garde for a comic McKean s best known for being The Sandman s cover artist and his art is well suited to that format But for page after page of interior art It s just headache inducing And when he does draw distinguishable figures they look like poor Simon Bisley facsimiles I liked Morrison s idea to have the Arkham doctors try weaning Harvey Dent off of the two sided coin and onto the I Ching It seemed like an original and viable means of treatment for Two Face But other ideas like the Joker calling the outside world the asylum and the world inside Arkham the real world was just corny and the Amadeus Arkham storyline just read like a poor man s Psycho Morrison s comics usually have substance to them but Arkham Asylum is all surface texture with few great ideas Arkham Asylum is a visually interesting book but it looks and reads like an art student s project ie a pretentious mish mash of nonsense than a good comic I definitely wouldn t rank it among Batman s classics If you want to read Morrison s best Batman books start with Batman and Son and go forwards from there

    What a fucking mess The painted artwork was appalling the story line was incoherent the dialogue was barely legible and most importantly the portrayal of Batman was all wrong This felt like a second rate haunted house horror that Batman was wedged into and poorly at that Batman's encounters with various villain
