Grant Morrison ✓ 5 characters Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth Free download é 5 Gauntlet the Dark Knight's must face down both his most dangerous foes and his inner demonsThis is the critically acclaimed Batman story that helped launch the US careers of Grant Morrison and Dave McKea. I have read many a pooroverrated Batman story in my ten odd years as a fan but this much referred to epic may take the cake As a Batman story this is a total failure Batman acts completely out of character almost from the beginning When walking into a hostage situation masterminded by the Joker he strikes up a conversation with his archenemy rather than planning how to rescue the innocents involved When Joker shoots a hostage in the head across the room from Batman I think the bizarre art style makes it nearly impossible to tell what is occuring at times Batman makes no attempt to save the hostage or capture the JokerIn fact the story seems to be allegorical than literal by showing Batman conversing with many of his rogues gallery foes rather than fighting them But rather than a meaningful point the book seems to meander until it becomes a random melange of images with little relation to one another Batman accomplishes next to nothing by the end of the story with little explanation as to why It is as though he started a mission then thought better of it and decided to take a walk through Gotham Park insteadIn the end this book is somewhat reminiscent of the film Batman Returns truly bizarre with a completely different Batman than whatever iconic version lodges in the minds of his fans the early comics the campy 60s TV show the 90s animated series etc However while Batman Returns is original enough to watch for mere discussions sake and at least offers a story of Batman fighting to protect Gotham citizens this unfortunate graphic novel is worth reading only for the most completive Batman fanThis book is in short postmodern garbage An Impolite Seduction Countess Trilogy #2 years as a fan but this much referred to epic may take the cake As a Batman story this is a total failure Batman acts completely out of character almost from the beginning When walking into a hostage situation masterminded by the Joker he strikes up a conversation with his archenemy rather than planning how to rescue the innocents involved When Joker shoots a hostage in the head across the room from Batman I think the bizarre art style makes it nearly impossible to tell what is occuring at times Batman makes no attempt to save the hostage or capture the JokerIn fact the story seems to be allegorical than literal by showing Batman conversing with many of his rogues gallery foes rather than fighting them But rather than a meaningful point the book seems to meander until it becomes a random melange of images with little relation to one another Batman accomplishes next to nothing by the end of the story with little explanation as to why It is as though he started a mission then thought better of it and decided to take a walk through Gotham Park insteadIn the end this book is somewhat reminiscent of the film Batman Returns truly bizarre with a completely different Batman than whatever iconic version lodges in the minds of his fans the early comics the campy 60s TV show the 90s animated series etc However while Batman Returns is original enough to watch for mere discussions sake and at least offers a story of Batman fighting to protect Gotham citizens this unfortunate graphic novel is worth reading only for the most completive Batman fanThis book is in short postmodern garbage

Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth

Grant Morrison ✓ 5 characters Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth Free download é 5 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 Bat. What a fucking mess The painted artwork was appalling the story line was incoherent the dialogue was barely legible and most importantly the portrayal of Batman was all wrong This felt like a second rate haunted house horror that Batman was wedged into and poorly at that Batman s encounters with various villains felt thrown in in a cheap name dropping way his decision making was baffling to non existent and the story s resolution hanging on a coin flip was absurd The back story to Gotham s Arkham Asylum was done much better in the Batman Arkham Asylum video game If I d read this first I may never have played that game due to fear it was this bad I only did decide to read this after seeing it on multiple best graphic novel lists How can so many lists be so wrong And how is the Goodreads rating so high What am I missing

Summary Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth

Grant Morrison ✓ 5 characters Batman Arkham Asylum A Serious House on Serious Earth Free download é 5 Man 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. This is not your traditional Batman tale Some people won t like it In fact Batman seems like a normal man when confronted by the horrors within and acts in very non Batman ways There s a two part story here where we switch back and forth to the founder of Arkham and why he turned his mansion into a facility for the mad and Batman trying to navigate his way through the madness of Arkham Batman action is minimal This is much of an emotional journey There is distinctive lettering for different characters and massive amounts of symbolism so several things will be missed by the casual reader Think of this as a true nightmare tale for Batman Sometimes the symbolism is a bit much and gets in the way of the tale This graphic novel influenced a video game of a similar title but that one is action based It also influenced Heath Ledger s portrayal of The Joker STORYPLOTTING B minus to B CHARACTERDIALOGUE B to B plus ARTWORK PRESENTATIONPANELS B plus to A minus BATMAN MYTHOLOGYFOCUSES B OVERALL GRADE B to B plus WHEN READ December 2011 revised review end of April 2013
