I'm with you on this one. I really don't understand why so many people actually liked this.

I have to agree with you Nick. This is a decent story, but after how great everyone says it is and whatnot I wasn't all that impressed. I'd much rather play Batman: Arkham Asylum the game than read this. The art is kinda cool but my main problem was that there were times when I couldn't tell who the fuck Batman was supposed to be talking to. I actually had to look up the fact if Doctor Destiny really was in the book. Like you said, the journal entries from Amadeus Arkham are the best part of the book. I think I would have actually liked this better if it were only about him and how Arkham Asylum got so damn crazy.

I also didn't like how Batman allowed the Joker to casually pull out a pistol and shoot someone in the head. I'm pretty sure he could have knocked that out of his hand with a batarang.

I like to think of this as Grant Morrison finding his hold on Batman. I like it but consider it Elseworlds. I think that helps a lot, but I can see how some people wouldn't like it. It really is one of those things where "you had to be there" when it came out.
