Batman Arkham Asylum,
This review is from: Arkham Asylum Anniversary Ed SC (Batman) (Paperback)
I'll be honest I love this book. this is not your run of the mill Batman Graphic novel, no it's much deeper, darker and definitely more disturbing than any other one I can think of.
The story has a simple set up of the in mates of the asylum have taken control and have been making demands for the entire day. they have one final request and that is that Batman has to come to the island in exchange for the hostages. and the Joker's plan is simple get Batman and turn him into one of them.
the story also goes through the story of Armedious Arkham the founder of the Asylum and going through how he had become so interested in the mind and why he had turned his family home into an asylum.
there is fantastic twist ending, which i wont spoil for anyone whom has not read it but it ties every loose end together perfectly.
the artwork in this novel is fantastic. Each panel is painted beautifully and it matches the dark tone of the rest of the novel.
I would give this 5 star however there was a couple of panels upon which I could not read what the Joker was saying so for me that was disappointing but apart from that this novel is a must read for any Batman or comic book fan but bear in mind that this book may not be for you as it can get violent and severely disturbing at times
