It's hard for me to know how to rate this because it's a great comic book but I didn't like it. Grant Morrison writes amazing comic books and this one is twisty and disturbing, which I like, and it inspired one the best video games of all time, which I love. However I think it's a shitty Batman comic book. If this was just about Arkham the man I would have liked it more but Morrison kept going back to Batman wandering around aimlessly in the Asylum, not really doing a fucking thing except poking his head into rooms to see what everybody was doing. Answer? Not much. The Mad Hatter was apparently getting high as shit and thinking about his love of little girls, the Scarecrow was just sort of meandering, and the Joker was probably thinking of what cutesy nickname he could call Batman the next time he saw him. I'm assuming Poison Ivy was taking a nap somewhere. Morrison was relying very heavily on mood and atmosphere, which McKean's art highlighted perfectly, but it didn't hold up for me. Also I don't love a version of Batman that tells a devastated woman who's just killed a man that the guy got what he deserved. She knew that guy, Bruce, don't be a dick. ( )

My God...

Horrifying, disturbing and yet so unbelievably good and unforgettable.

I had honest-to-god goosebumps and my heart was beating so hard from fear. Fear for Batman's sanity, fear from the Joker's insanity and fear from the painted pictures that looked so alive and ready to jump at me at any moment.

The Joker was at the heart of this story and Grant Morrison really outdone himself in this volume and I can't wait to read more of his works on the Dark Knight.

PS: DON'T READ THIS AT NIGHT! You'll have nightmares I'm not kidding.. ( )

It's hard to find something to say about Arkham Asylum that hasn't already been said. It's good. Real good. I first read this several years ago before I really understood what was going on, and concluded that it was a good scary story but just an average Batman story. (There was only one fight, and Batman barely won! There were no gadgets! And what was up with that thing about the fish?) I came back to it later and understood better what Morrison was going for (a sort of hero's journey through the Underworld type of thing).

Coming back to the book again (buying it this time, not hiding out in that one armchair in Barnes and Noble) with the 15th Anniversary Edition was even more of a revelation, as this time, Morrison's full script for the book is included at the back with some footnotes by Morrison about symbolism and cut material. It's an exorcism of the crazy Frank Miller Batman (the 1980s crazy Frank Miller Batman, although I guess that with the theme here of echoes across time, Morrison was probably exorcising the latter-day crazy Frank Miller ASBAR Batman as well), a sort of cleaning-up of the material.

Morrison's script is tight, and Dave McKean's art is perfect here (really, anyone else doing this is unimaginable). A necessary piece of the Batmanon (that's the Batman canon, kids) for a reason. ( )

Coming up on it's 25th anniversary, this is one of the classic Batman stories.

The lunatics are running the asylum, where the inmates have taken over, and are demanding one final thing: Batman to come join them.

Batman finally agrees, whilst worried about what he will confront whilst in there - is the asylum actually where he will feel "normal" and "comfortable" - will it feel like coming home? He comes across many of the inmates, many of whom he has put in there, and some of his most iconic enemies, including Harvey Dent, The Joker (some of the best graphic animation in the book), The Scarecrow etc.

Running along side this narrative is that of the Asylum's creator, who set up the asylum after the death of his insane mother, but who in turn, goes mad. The last few years of his life is spent creating a binding spell for one iconic figure - The Bat. Many of the inmates now believe Batman is The Bat foretold and hence his arrival and commitment will fulfil some supernatural spell.

Interesting to see Dave Mckean's very early work and how over the years that style of drawing/colouring has become his established style, taking him (and Neil Gaiman) through Stardust and beyond ( )

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."

I see now the virtue in madness, for this country knows no laws nor any boundary
I pity the poor shades confined to the Euclidean prison that is sanity
All things are possible here and I am what madness has made me
Whole 
And complete 
And free at last.
