Long before Thomas Harris introduced a dark prison with a world-renowned serial killer in its depths, Gotham City had Arkham Asylum, where every inmate was a Hannibal Lecter. The building where all of Batman’s dreaded foes while away the hours before their next escape takes center stage in what proves to be more a slow-burning psychological thriller than the grisly free-for-all the subject suggests. Sabine is a new nurse who must negotiate the administrative politics of the place as much as the halls that hold cannibals, hideously scarred criminals, and psychotic clowns. The story initially owes plenty to the romance-and-relationship-driven plots of shows like Grey’s Anatomy, and it’s only when Sabine is maneuvered onto the night shift that real danger is introduced. It’s the Joker, naturally, who incites the trouble, but even so, his misdoings prove far tamer than the explosion of loony violence you’d expect. Truly, it’s Kieth’s (The Maxx) plump, gnarly, and richly atmospheric art that creates a sense that, no matter who you are or how you got there, once Arkham has you, it never quite lets go. --Jesse Karp
