Review:Batman Arkham Asylum: A serious house on serious earth

Presentation: We all know that the arkham asylum game that dropped in 2009 was one the best comic book based games. this graphic novel is no different.

Story(no spoilers): the story is not based on the game .it's moslty flashbacks that tell the story of how the asylum came to be, and batman is once again faced with the joker, who after reading this comic i know is faaaar more complex as a character than he looks,and there are some familiar faces also: killer croc, zeus,the mad hatter...

Illustraion: the drawing can be described with two words: something else. You can see that the graphic novel's main purpose is to tell a story.It isn't very detailed wich threw me of at the begining but as i was reading i realised it's detailed enough to keep the story very thrilling.

Verdict:i give it a [7,5/10]. I liked mostly because of its orignality but i didn't like it that they rushed some of the fights.Point is : Read it if you can . it is soo worth it


(pardon some of the mistakes english is my third language)

i liked this batman game, but thought spider-man 2 was the better comic book game.

"the story is not based on the game"
I lol'd. Unless the developers of the game could time travel, it couldn't be. But the idea of Batman's rogue gallery taking over the asylum was obviously taken from this graphic novel. If they followed it more closely, I think the game might have been even better. Far more interesting story than "Joker has a super version of Bane's venom lol"

Sounds intriguing, I've never really thought locking up a load of supervillains in the same place was the smartest idea though.

Just a general hint about your blog, you have to make the "previous posts" widget a bit wider, words are going vertical.
