Comic News:
DC's Arkham Asylum: Living Hell
By Brian Jacks


Arkham Asylum. The very mention of the name sends chills down the spine of every rational person in Gotham. The city's worst elements end up there, sharing space with the likes of The Joker, Two-Face and the Riddler.

Arkham Asylum: Living Hell is an edgy 6-issue miniseries sprung from the devious mind of writer Dan Slott (Batman Adventures, Ren & Stimpy) and rendered by upcoming Detective Comics artist Ryan Sook (The Spectre, Superman: Man of Tomorrow) with stunning painted covers by Eric Powell (The Goon). Reminiscent of the HBO series Oz, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell is a creepy prison drama that introduces readers to the dark underbelly of Gotham's notorious “House of Madness.”

Warren White, the finance world's “Great White Shark,” thought he could beat his jail rap for embezzlement by pleading insanity. Little did he know that there's a good reason why no one cops an insanity plea in Gotham City! Now he's the “New Fish” in Arkham Asylum…and if he wasn't crazy before, he sure as hell will be when the asylum's twisted inmates are done with him!

Arkham Asylum: Living Hell includes appearances by many favorites, including Batman, The Joker, Two-Face and The Riddler. Readers also will be introduced to a host of new residents of the Gotham crazyhouse as well, such as Humpty Dumpty, who breaks things in order to put them back together again…even people! Then there's Death Rattle, a man who claims to see dead people…dead people who goad him into committing grisly crimes! And the Junkyard Dog, who digs up dirt on Gotham's elite…literally! Of course, they're just crazy…right? Warren White is about to find out!

Arkham Asylum: Living Hell is a six-issue miniseries edited by Dan Raspler. The 32-page issue #1 arrives in comic-book stores May 21 with a cover price of $2.50 U.S.
