Batman: Shadow of the Bat

    (DC, 1992-2000)
™ and © 1994 DC Comics, Inc.

This brilliant series begins with a bang. Arkham Asylum, that home of lunatics, paranoids, and the murderously insane, is being torn down and rebuilt. The son of the original architect, Jeremiah Arkham, is the new chief administrator, and he’s ripping out the old, and bringing in the new. Now, instead of the dark Victorian corridors and dank cells, there are shiny new fluorescent lights illuminating a floor plan laid out like a labyrinth. All of this, of course, in the name of progress.

But in the new asylum are the same old inmates: Cornelius Stirk, the murderously insane night-dweller; Scarecrow, whose greatest joy is to bring fear to others; and Mr. Zsasz, the serial killer who has laid waste to over a hundred lives…

As well as one other, very special guest of Arkham Asylum…Batman.
