The art in here is awesome. I love it. It's so different and unexpected. Nothing like the typical comic book art you normally see. I just studied the pages forever.

The story is great too. I love it. Everything about it is awesome.

READ IT! ( )

Great art, but the writing is weak, there is virtually no plot. I don't get what the hype is all about. ( )

A very scary version of Joker in this graphic novel! ( )

Really liked the story and the artwork. The downside was that because of the artwork and stylized font used, it was hard for me to read what the Joker was saying. ( )

Epigraph
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
Lewis Carroll
'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland'
Dedication
First words
From the journals of Amadeus Arkham: In the years following my father's death, I think it's true to say that the house became my whole world.
Quotations
I see now the virtue in madness, for this country knows no laws nor any boundary
I pity the poor shades confined to the Euclidean prison that is sanity
All things are possible here and I am what madness has made me
Whole 
And complete 
And free at last.
