Grant Morrison has been working with DC Comics for more than twenty years, beginning with his legendary runs on the revolutionary titles ANIMAL MAN and DOOM PATROL. Since then he has written numerous best-sellers — including JLA, BATMAN andNew X-Men — as well as the critically acclaimed creator-owned series THE INVISIBLES, SEAGUY, THE FILTH, WE3 and JOE THE BARBARIAN. Morrison has also expanded the borders of the DC Universe in the award-winning pages of SEVEN SOLDIERS, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, FINAL CRISIS and BATMAN, INC., and he is currently reinventing the Man of Steel in the all-new ACTION COMICS.
In his secret identity, Morrison is a “counterculture” spokesperson, a musician, an award-winning playwright and a chaos magician. He is also the author of theNew York Times best-seller Supergods, a groundbreaking psycho-historic mapping of the superhero as a cultural organism. He divides his time between his homes in Los Angeles and Scotland.
The inmates of Arkham Asylum have taken over Gotham's detention center for the criminally insane on April Fool's Day, demanding Batman in exchange for their hostages. Accepting their demented challenge, Batman is forced to endure the personal hells of the Joker, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Two-Face and many other sworn enemies in order to save the innocents and retake the prison. During his run through this absurd gauntlet, the Dark Knight's must face down both his most dangerous foes and his inner demons.This is the critically acclaimed Batman story that helped launch the U.S. careers of Grant Morrison and Dave McKean. The classic confrontation between the Dark Knight and his archnemeses, this story is well known for its psychological intensity and probing portraits of Batman and the Joker.ARKHAM ASYLUM includes groundbreaking art that influenced scores of artists by introducing a new school of storytelling and technique to comics. This special edition also includes Morrison's complete original script, annotated by Morrison and editor Karen Berger, many of his original thumbnail breakdowns, step-by-step samples of how the story and art came together and much more.

  • Good Story, Good art, Great Price

    This is a great story if your interested in the history of Arkham Asylum. The caricature's are written well, and dark with a little perversion. The art is weird but in a fitting way for this story.

  • Alright story not a fan of the artwork

    This is a story about Batman getting trapped into coming to Arkham Asylam where it has been taken over by The Joker who has set everyone free to roam around. Batman comes face to face with many of the people he is responsible for putting there. The story is alright but the artwork is like nothing else I've seen and I'm not a fan of it.

  • Just Batty

    I bought this as a gift for a longtime Batman fan and avid reader. It was absolutely loved. I had an original as a teen and I just couldn't shake the imagery and story in this graphic novel. It is by far one of the best graphic novels in the Batman collection. I highly recommend it to anyone who is just starting out in their Batman novel collection, or someone who has been a longtime fan but may have let this one slip thru the cracks.
