I have been jonesing for comics again. My son in law bought a signed Avengers comic. I have been really into Batman lately...watched the recent "Batman Year One" and remembering my blog post last year called "Of Childish Things" the Batman Theme song...I just love The Dark Knight. He is real. No super powers. Just wit and tech. The loss of his parents at age 8...his continual melancholic borderline psychosis dedicating him as a vigilante of the night.
So I decided to collect again. I downloaded digital copies of Arkham Asylum (1989) and Arkham City (2011) to get to read the ones I am soon going to buy for collection. You just don't read a comic, so I am thankful for the bootleg digitizers out there. I am honorable enough to do it and buy it, though.
Batman Arkham Asylum appealed to my darker side and appreciation of a dark art format. Batman is mostly drawn as a shadow.
