    Living Hell is Heaven to Batfans

    If you're a fan of the Bat rogues, this is the comic for you. It's the flipside of the coin of Morrison's Serious House on Serious Earth; more of a day-to-day guide to life in Arkham than a biblical nightmare. In other words, they complement each other very nicely.

    It is told through the lens of Warren White, the 'Great White Shark'. He manages to plead insanity for money laundering or something of the sort....but that might not have been the right move. The major bat characters make only minor appearances, which really suits the book. Instead, it's up to the inmates and staff of Arkham to deal with the problems that arise since this is Gotham City after all...

    The result is a wonderful characterization of the regular inhabitants of Arkham, a witty book, and generally a guaranteed good read.

    If nothing else, one chapter is told ENTIRELY in rhyme.

      What is it like inside the walls of Arkham Asylum? Well this comic shows us that through Warren White a crooked finacier who is called one of the worst human being who ever lived. He has plead insanity to avoid Blackgate, but little does he know how much worse Arkham Asylum is. This comic did a really good job of establishing how horrible Arkham can be especially if you are the new fish. This is a place with the most twisted individuals around. I had always kind of wondered what it was like behi...
