Read full description of the books Batman: Arkham Asylum:The Caped Crusader with footnotes!?!
or Art for Art’s Sake.
or Holy Histrionics, Batman, I’d rather have listened to an opera…
Grant Morrison gets “serious” – it’s even mentioned in the title twice in case you need a reminder – and if Carrot Top wants to star in a remake of Death of a Salesman or Billy Joel wants to write a concerto for flugelhorn and triangle, I don’t want to hear about it.
Wait, Jeff, did you say footnotes?
Yes, Goodreader, this is why I love you, because nothing ever gets by you. Nothing.
This is the 25th anniversary edition of the publishing of this pretentious pile of crap, so we get Morrison’s script tacked onto the actual comic. The script includes footnotes because Mr. Morrison wants to share each and every pop culture allusion and Easter egg that he’s cleverly included for us.
The script actually came in handy, because I could actually read what The Joker was trying to say, but shuffling back and forth between the comic and an addendum quickly wore thin.
A plot summary: The inmates at Arkham take control of the asylum because it’s Tuesday and demand that Batman pay them a visit, because they love him so so much and want to cuddle and spoon and eat Toll House cookie dough real fast, which is a good thing because this isn’t take-control-of-the-situation-with-a-few-well-placed-bat-flash-gernades-and-a-couple-of-kidney-punches-and-or-batarang-or-two-to-the-dome Batman, this is Emo-boy-Mr.-Feels-Kyle-Raynor-is-my-psychic-twin Batman, so let’s brood, shall we?
Therapy seems to work wonders for a few of the rogues – yes, Two-Face flip a coin pick a card to see if you can scratch your ass.
Stop spouting drivel and take a tranquilizer!
He’s seen better days.
Idea: Bats, shove him into a kiln and present him to Alfred as a big ashtray or something. You can put him between the dinosaur and the big penny.
Did I mention that the asylum is haunted because the Arkham’s were a punch of loons or the Arkham’s were a bunch of loons because the original house was haunted?
Bottom line: The art is purty, but then so was Where’s Waldo? And with Where’s Waldo you didn’t have to work as hard to find the player(s).
Another word association? Ready?
