Batman: Arkham Unhinged Vol 1 & 2

Batman_Arkham_Unhinged_Vol_1_1Pick up Volumes 1 and 2 of “Batman: Arkham Unhinged” and thought it worth a look. These are based on the game storyline for Arkham City (which I have yet to move onto yet) and involves all of Arkham being annexed into one giant penitentiary.

The artwork in this series is pretty good and some of the stories are better than others. I especially liked the Killer Croc origins story as I was unfamiliar with his story-line.

One thing I found tired was the interplay between Catwoman, Ivy and Harley. They (predictably) ended up at each other’s throats once a bloke (Batman) got involved and the writer could have been a bit more innovative.

I may pick up any future volumes at the library but I’m not going to knock myself out with them for the moment.
