4.0 out of 5 stars A decent enough read 22 Mar 2013
By Slice
Format:Paperback
I'll be completely honest: This book probably doesn't deserve 4 stars, but it certainly doesn't deserve the 2 stars that the only other review (at this time) gave it, so I wanted to balance things out.

This is a series of 5 short stories, each focussing on a different well-known villain from Gotham, and each opened and closed by Joker himself. Mostly these stories are good quality, and although the frankly terrible Clayface one at the end left a bad taste in my mouth, the other four more than make up for it. The other characters to be featured (besides Joker) are Mad Hatter, Harley Quinn, Riddler and Killer Croc. Normally I don't care for Mad Hatter as a character, and Croc is rarely done justice, but both are done well in this volume. Each story also uses its own art style, which some might find irritating, but I enjoyed, especially getting to see 5 different Jokers and Bats.

Anyway, to wrap up, if you're like me and you find Batman's villains more interesting that the hero himself (or his allies/companions/sidekicks etc) then I'd recommend picking this volume up. However, if you're more interested in stories focussed on Bruce himself, or if you're no major fan of the 5 villains on show, missing Joker's Asylum 2 won't be the end of the world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good value for money 22 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a massive Joker fan and I get all the graphic novels and books to do with him.
I was disappointed with this one as it is very thin and flimsy. I paid nearly as much as I did for Brian Azzarello's Joker graphic novel, which is nice and chunky and hardcover with a nice sleeve.
My verdict, overpriced.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent follow-up to the first Joker's Asylum 21 Jan 2011
By Setaris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a direct sequel to the original "Joker's Asylum" that was released a few years ago that features a collection of one-shot stories highlighting a particular Batman villain. The villains taking the spotlight this time are Harley Quinn, Clayface, Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, and the Riddler. Like the previous volume, each story focuses on one of these villains in a short story that shows the reader just what makes the character tick. Obviously each character is different but ultimately you get a sense of why they're so dangerous and why Batman must be the one to deal with them.

With narrations by the Joker himself, expect some humor naturally along with outlooks on these characters' dark psyches. Since this is a compiliation of stories, the writers and artists vary but overall the art's good, didn't see anything that really stuck out. Writing's okay too, overall, though some stories seemed like they wasted the character's potential to really make a gritty tale. The stories involving Mad Hatter and Clayface wasted much of their potential for example, I really believe those two could have have been done more justice.

If you enjoyed the first volume, you'll probably like this too as it's in the same style of the first, just with different villains. I thought it was decent, definitely enjoyed the first better because I liked the characters more however I do think this one could have rivaled it if the stories were written better. I will say though "The House The Cards Built" and "Beauty And The Beast" are excellent reads and definitely stand out above the rest. This is at least worth a read if you don't want to buy it, if only for those two stories I mentioned.

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT follow up to Batman: Joker's Asylum Vol. 1 20 April 2011
By GSD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the 2nd part of the "Joker's Asylum" series that was released a few years ago that features a collection of one-shot stories highlighting Harley Quinn, Clayface, Mad Hatter, Killer Croc, and the Riddler. In this book, you get a good overview of these characters. Very well done for what it is, but if you are looking for a Batman trade paperback, this is not for you.
4.0 out of 5 stars A decent collection for a reasonable price. 24 Jun 2014
By Robert B. Barnhill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Joker's Asylum Volume 2 is a pretty decent collection of stories of some of your favorite Batman related villains. All of these stories, are told from the viewpoint of the Joker which adds a nice little twist to things. The top story of this bunch is without a doubt the Harley Quinn one. The Killer Croc, Riddler, and Mad Hatter stories are solid offerings with the Clayface tale ranked as average in my opinion. There is no continuity in this TP(each is a stand alone story), so if you are not planning on getting in to a long storyline this may be a book for you. For the cost, it is one of the cheaper offerings of the DC imprint. I would say it is definitely worth the price. Hope this review was helpful.
3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Have High Expectations and You Won't be Disappointed!! 5 Oct 2012
By BatmanLover999 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this one day on a whim because it was only 4 bucks and I thought for 4 bucks I will be happy if it has one good story.

It didn't disappoint in that regard. Although I wasn't a fan of the Mad Hatter story, the Clayface story or the Riddler story, I did enjoy both the Killer Croc story and the Harley Quinn story.

Could I do without this book? Of course. Would I say it was one of the best Batman stories ever? Of course not. But it is good for what it is, and for what I paid.

If you buy this book not expecting to have your mind blown, and just enjoy the stories, its not bad. Not great, but not bad either.
3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag of Madness 17 Jun 2012
By Garrett Wroblewski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This second anthology of villian-centric stories hosted by the Joker is a mixed bag. The good (The Mad Hatter in Tea Time), the bad (Clayface in Mudnight Madness) and the ugly (Killer Croc in Beauty and the Beast). Not breaking any new ground, but most of the tales add a littler dimension to overused second-tier members of Batman's Rogue's Gallery. The only story that disappoints is Mudnight Madness, a lazy tale penned by Kevin Schmich with pencis by Kelly Jones that seem a caricature of his former greatness. No real reason to pick this up unless you were a huge fan of the first volume of Joker's Asylum.
