A review by jacquilynn
Batman: Arkham Asylum - A Serious House on Serious Earth, by Grant Morrison


I'm a little conflicted on this one. Some of the artwork, especially the flashback scenes, is absolutely is incredible. I hope to never read anything with red writing outlined in white ever again. I am not color blind but I had some serious issues trying to read some of the Joker's dialogue and almost skipped it because of it. Some of the early action was just like villain done villain done, it feels like it went too quickly. Then the end had a great build up and again just seemed to stop. I have an issue with the last page. The Joker has a cryptic last word and it should have ended there, maybe it's my experience with the comics but this one left me a bit confused- is it a cliffhanger or not? It's worth a read if only for the backstory of Amadeus Arkham.
