Art house batman

Still holds up after all these years. If you're not familiar with it, it's presented more as an art house film - the timing is closer to a film screenplay and the gorgeous painting work is haunting and fevered.

A psychological horror where batman is lured into arkham asylum and ends up learning more about his own possible insanity than he does fighting crime. The roster of his foes over the years are sad and deluded lunatics in a nightmarish living house.

The concurrent story is the history of the asylum and its original designer/inmate namesake and the horrors he witnessed and succumbed to.

Don't bother if you want a traditional action adventure - there's only really one fight and very little dialogue. If you want something that's closer to a bad dream haunted by adult characters in an insane world then this is easily the best batman story around still. Plus the artwork is genuinely stunning. Some hurried and sketch like, some leisurely paintings with photographic work included to enhance the emotions (long before the graphics packages made this more common place).
