Format: Paperback
This book has no Batman in it. He is talked about and all the villains are in Arkham because of him but he doesn't make an appearance. Thought I would mention it in case you wanted a batman story.

So why buy this graphic novel., In a few words artwork and storey. Some of the images of the Joker are the best I have seen and the artwork really does deliver the right tone for the story.

The story, without giving away any spoilers, is about a 24 hour stint in the nuthouse called Arkham. You come across the villains of batman in harley Quinn, Poison Ivey Doc Croc and, of course, the Joker. Its a deep story, slow to get your attention but it gets you about two thirds of the way in when the plot explodes.

The reason I have not given the book 5 stars is that the story is a bit disjointed and it is hard to work out what has happened in a few scenes but then again that may be to allow you to use your own imagination.

Certainly worth a read or two!

Was not a huge fan of the art at all.

The story takes way to long to get going. The nurse does not shut up about how much she loves her kid. Even when the story gets going, it is all for nothing as in terms of story nothing much happens. I expected so much more. This is by far the worse joker story i have read in a long long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Avante Garde Arkham Asylum 25 Dec. 2012
By Garrett Wroblewski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm always thrilled to get an original take on Batman's Rogue's Gallery, and Sam Keith's Arkham Asylum: Madness is certainly that. Unfamiliar with his previous work (aside from my friend's glowing review of his creator-owned book The Maxx), I was unsure what to expect. What I got was an experiment in mixed media art that, while not my usual cup of tea, was quite enthralling in its willingness to explore such a bold visual palette.

The plot revolves around Sabine Robbins, a nurse working a 24-hour shift at Arkham Asylum. A typical day-in-the-life at a workplace that is anything but typical, AA:Madness is a wonderful companion piece to Gotham Central. I say this not because the two titles are anything alike, but because they both delve into the Bat-Universe from the perspective of an average Joe (or Jill, as the case may be).

Everything about this book is unapologetically avante garde. One's willingness to "take the ticket and ride the ride" will determine how enjoyable they find it. Of particular interest is the characterization of The Joker. One of his fellow inmates calls him "gutless" and "old", but the Clown Prince of Crime still has more than a few tricks up his sleeve.

An awesome and bold (if somewhat uneven) look at the criminally insane. Forserious Bat-fans, Kieth fans, and those who enjoy taking a close-up psychological look at the madness of humanity. Grade: B+

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 19 Aug. 2015
By Riley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great comic, I love when they truly display how mad everyone (even the staff) is at Arkham.
The art is great and the story is lovingly twisted.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed it. 19 Jan. 2016
By flux - Published on Amazon.com

Sam Kieth has a unique style that I like very much and it is very prominent in his take on Arkham Asylum. I thought it was nicely done and true to his particular style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting peek into the staff of Arkham 17 Mar. 2013
By QuickMan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was an interesting look into the staff of Arkham, though I feel that more could have been done with the doctors and their interactions with the inmates. There were lots of potential story setups that were left untouched, and a few plot threads were left hanging at the end. Not a bad read, but I feel that it could have been better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story okay graphics 27 July 2013
By Rockethonda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the title suggests, this book has a good story line. But, the visuals aren't quite as I expected. If you can pick it up for half the cover price, it's worth picking up for the collection.
