actually, there is no comparison because this comic just blows chunks.
Having been a huge fan of the Arkham Asylum games, I picked this up without thinking too much about it, and I have to say, it's one of the most confusing things I have ever read.
The art is amazing, so that is why I give it three stars at all. The story is very weird, and seems like it should've just been about Arkham himself, as that was more interesting than Batman just walking around and having hallucinations. I may have read it wrong, but there also aren't any stakes after Batman walks in, everybody is just kinda hanging out and talking, nobody is in real danger it feels like.
Honestly, it's worth it for the art, the story is whatever and does not resemble the games at all, which I didn't expect it to.
