3.0 out of 5 stars Morrison : Disappointing / McKean : Incredible !, 1 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Batman: Arkham Asylum (Kindle Edition)
So this basically is a Batman book where Batman is not the main character. The idea may seem intriguing -it certainly aroused my curiosity- and when it comes to Grant Morrison, I always expect to have my mind blown. This did not happen this time.
Exploring the history of Arkham Asylum and introducing new characters like Amadeus Arkham and Dr. Cavendish was very refreshing, but the plot was weirdly tasteless and boring, somewhat chaotic as well. Many villains from the Batman universe appear in this graphic novel, but they (Clayface, Killer Croc, the Scarecrow, the Mad Hatter) do not bring anything to the plot. The most redeeming quality of the book is the incredibly lavish and detailed illustrations by Dave McKeen; each page is an incredible, unique work of art that makes Arkham Asylum - A Serious House on Serious Earth worth reading.
