    1. I think this is my favorite book with the Joker in it ever. Batman will have to get over it for a few since he didn't show up for work the day this book was made. That slacker.This is the story of a nurse's workday at the Arkham Asylum. She starts the day with her husband and son driving her to work. She tells her son what a wonderful work place she has and how all the inmates there should be shown forgiveness and caring feelings. Uh yeah.Once there after gossiping with her co-worker.e admits ho [...]


    2. This one follows a day in the life of a nurse, Sabine Robbins, who works at Arkham Asylum and I think Batman’s mentioned twice in passing, so welcome to Batman week, Gothamites.Working at Arkham Asylum, home to Batman’s rogue’s gallery, has to be one of the more stressful ways to make a buck in comics. Between jobs as a Male Exotic Dancer and a Riverboat Pilot, I once worked in a mental institution which had its own wing for the criminally insane. They didn’t have any super villains* hou [...]


    3. Stars, that's awful drawing! Just look what they did to my beloved Harley.She looks like an old hag. She's not even pretty. She's plain ugly.Everybody in this comic is ugly.And the story makes no sense in the end. The conclusion is weird for both sides, the Arkham staff and the inmates. Two bad ones in a row already. >.< Does that mean something to my 2017 reads?


    4. Ever wonder what a day in the life of an Arkham Asylum nurse is like? Me neither but here we have it anyway with Arkham Asylum: Madness. And it’s fucking boring! I thought Sam Kieth’s art was unusual and quirky when I first saw it in The Maxx but over the years it’s just devolved into looking sloppy, lazy and ugly - some of the pages are such poor quality they look like a photocopy of a photocopy! The character designs are among the shittiest I’ve ever seen: Harley has dreads, Two-Face i [...]


    5. Sam Kieth’s Arkham Asylum: Madness has no Batman and nothing to pull it above being a relentlessly crappy comic. Normally I wouldn’t have read this. I actually own a first edition of “The Maxx”—Kieth’s big claim to fame—but I preferred a different comic in that four-in-one read (the one about a dude riding around a giant, flying gun). Whatever way you put it, I’m not on the Kieth fan boy track. In fact, I think Kieth’s artistic style has actually gotten worse since then. What h [...]


    6. I'm struggling with rating this one because parts of it I loved and parts of it bored/confused me so 3.5 stars it is. I honestly think that my expectations were just too high. I was just left wanting more by the end of it. Arkham Asylum: Madness follows the story of a nurse named Sabine who works in Arkham Asylum. I honestly think they're all fucking crazy just for setting foot in that building but guess you gotta get money however you can in Gotham. Kieth does an excellent job portraying the cr [...]


    7. The narrative and the art style is all over the place, but I think that worked in this graphic novel's favor. It gave the impression very well that Arkham Asylum is a pressure-cooker, a living thing waiting to burst. It was a slow burn to begin with, but little things like the persistent thumps coming from the walls and a clock that inexplicably bleeds pushes the feeling that such a place would be unnerving to those who endure that environment for a living. And since Arkham Asylum Madness shows [...]


    8. It was OK. That sums it up pretty well. The art just wasn't doing it for me. It worked with the Joker but the other inmates and staff, nope didn't work. Perhaps that's a sign of how adaptable the Joker is as a character? I enjoyed his storyline, but the story of the nurse 'Sabine' was just a waste of time as were most of the rest of the occurences here. I suppose it did a good job of conveying just how broken Arkham is in every waybut non-essential unless you like to read about Arkham. No Batman [...]


    9. I just love Arkham Asylum, I think it's hard to write a bad comic on the topic. This story has absolutely no Batman nor does it need him the Asylum itself becomes the main character and the guards, nurses, doctors, and of course super villains who make up the character list are engaging and interesting on their own. The framework of the story lies with a new young nurse who is working a double (24hrs)and misses her son and husband terribly. The narration is at times hard to follow because it see [...]


    10. Not Sam Kieth's best work but still really good. His art is, as always, spectacular and haunting. The idea is a fantastic one - it's set in a prison mental hospital for all the villains Batman has put away. Where it falls a little flat is in its narrative arc. It's a little predictable, unusual for the very creative and innovative Sam Kieth. Still, it holds up well enough and it's worth checking out.


    11. 2 1/2 stars .id no Arkham worker ever."She will always belong to Arkham Asylum.And she will always be a part of the madness." - The Joker


    12. I'm a big fan of Sam Kieth. I wasn't disappointed. Was it gripping? No, but it's not meant to be. It's a day spent at Arkham Asylum. And I loved it.


    13. DC, which, unlike Marvel, still releases original graphic novels every once in a while, released this one, which is written, drawn, and occasionally colored by Sam Kieth, colored the rest of the time by Michelle Madsen and Dave Stewart, and lettered by Steve Wands. It’s a slim volume – not quite 100 pages long, and it retails for $19.99.The basic plot is simple: A nurse named Sabine arrives for her shift at Arkham Asylum in the morning and ends up staying for 24 hours when she’s drafted fo [...]


    14. This book started off kinda slow, and never really picked up the type of speed of a normal Batman title. But this isn't your ordinary Batman book, specifically this is a book about Arkham Asylum. The overall tone of the story is to convey the weight of being around the most dangerous psychopaths in Gotham. It was sorta anti-climactic, very much in the the way that H.P. Lovecraft would approach his writings. Use the weight and worries of the situation to help convey a slow descent into madness. O [...]


    15. This was a mildly entertaining graphic novel that deals with a day in the life of Arkham Asylum - the place where a lot of the insane criminals captured by Batman end up. As one would expect, things do not go smoothly on this particular day! Although it is a reasonably atmospheric story, I felt it could've been much darker considering that it's about a weirdly constructed and decrepit building housing some seriously disturbed and dangerous inmates. That said, I liked the dark humour and antics o [...]


    16. I'm always thrilled to get an original take on Batman's Rogue's Gallery, and Sam Keith's Arkham Asylum: Madness is certainly that. Unfamiliar with his previous work (aside from my friend's glowing review of his creator-owned book The Maxx), I was unsure what to expect. What I got was an experiment in mixed media art that, while not my usual cup of tea, was quite enthralling in its willingness to explore such a bold visual palette.The plot revolves around Sabine Robbins, a nurse working a 24-hour [...]


    17. ´Despite the art and narrative being all over the place, I think this comic depicted life in the asylum in a throughout manner. You can clearly see how unnerving it is for people to work there, the environment is so naturally spooky and mysterious. I seriously didn't like the art in it though. It was unnerving me more than the environment was. You can't find batman in here, and he isn't needed either. Like I said, it's more of a depiction of life. But you can find Harley - one of my favurite ch [...]


    18. In addition to the dualism in Batman (the need to do good and the insanity of being a vigilante dressed up as a bad) and the similarities between Batman and the Joker I've found that I like prison literature - and therefore everything with Arkham Asylum is a must read/see/play for me.Unfortunately this entire graphic novel is just "decent" - it's not deeply compelling and I took no trouble putting it down afterwards or felt any need to read it again instantaneously.The different focus in this st [...]


    19. Well I feel this is just lazy in the art and a bit predictable in the story. The main character is dull and really not interesting. There are some stuff that makes no sense (Harley Quinn with dreads, Killer Croc being an ACTUAL croc). I dunno, the Joker doing a very old, not clever prank putting glass in the food It just feels that it was written in one night and draw in another one.I wonder what happened with Sam Kieth. I'm just familiar with his Sandman art but it's SOOO much better than this. [...]


    20. A beautifully illustrated day at Arkham. No Batman, just the staff and inmates. Bloody and poetic, this tale is great - human characters, a believable story and a genuinely funny Joker.



    21.

    22. Art matches tone perfectly. Shows a double shift nurse; good portrayal of villains, best are croc and joker. Joker gets revenge on all employees and creates collectibles for them


    23. I bought this way back in March I think, but read it on Sunday during a power outage. How appropriate.Sabine is a nurse who works at Arkham Asylum and picks up a 24 hour shift. Will the stifling madness get to her? Will the Joker? Or is it just another 24 hours?It's refreshing to have a Batman book without Batman in it. Seriously, he's mentioned maybe once. By a child. This certainly isn't a Batman story. This is an Arkham Asylum story. It's what it says on the label.So, you all know I'm a huge [...]


    24. What a mess, where do I start? Should I even bother? What happens in this? Well we follow a nurse around for a 24hr shift that completely violates union agreements and OSHA safety regulations, but hell, its a comic book, so maybe I can pretend that's plausible in Gothem. The rest? Its just a jumbled mess of "can you guess who this villain is after I've done it MY OWN WAY!" which actually makes most of the villains either impossible to identify from a distance or is such eye rolling obvious fan a [...]


    25. First, what I need to say upfront: this is one of those books about peripheral characters in a series. It is the kind of story that you may or not like, and it is often a book just made to milk a franchise. With that out of the way, overall, it is a fairly good book, even though it does start very slow at first. However, once the pace picks up, it does hold on to you until the very end. In addition, the author does provide a pretty nice afterword with a dedication that is a bit of a twist. Worth [...]


    26. Sam Kieth. So much potential, so difficult in staying with him and his work so that he realizes that potential at some point. I'm always excited when I see a Sam Kieth book, but more often than not I'm left with a sense of dissatisfaction. This book left me wondering why I just spent the last hour reading through it. Both the story and art meandered and was all over the place. Poor storytelling. And really disappointing art as well (please stick with the Sam Kieth style - no need to copy other a [...]


    27. Интересный комикс, в котором практически все действие происходит в психушке Аркхэм. Бэтмен тут не появляется ни одной из страниц, но это отнюдь не минус. Нам опять позволяют приоткрыть дверь безумия и заглянуть в серьезный дом на серьезной земле, только на этот раз, из-за сп [...]


    28. Not just a story about Joker or the other immates. Not just a story about Sabine or the rest of the people working there. Not even a story about the building.Arkham Asylum: Madness is a story about craziness, both psychopathic and mundane, about repeating mistakes, getting ourselves into something we know that leads to somewhere we don't want to go and about not being able to escape from something we know we need to run because it's killing ourselves slowly.And saying that, then this 112-page co [...]


    29. Great art, great story.This one gave me the chills. I'm aspiring to be a psychiatric nurse and when I finished this I started to question myself what's the worse that would happen to me when I become one. My favorite part was when Joker cornered Sabine (with Roy taped on the wall) and asked her why she didn't quit. She's a mother and homesick and really needs to support her family. That one night shift made her question what's really important to her. The ending of the story was the most thrilli [...]
