'Arkham Manor'

Writer Gerry Duggan tells us what to expect from the comic this October

Posted on

Gotham City’s crazies take center stage in a Batman spin-off that reconfigures Wayne Manor into the local institution for the criminally ultra-insane. ”The first Arkham Asylum was a large converted home,” says writer Gerry Duggan. ”Now history is repeating itself.” The series will introduce several new baddies alongside familiar faces like Mad Hatter. Just don’t expect the change of venue to improve the villains’ mental health. ”If it’s possible, we’ve made their lives worse,” Duggan says. The first issue kicks off a murder mystery, with inmates turning up dead. The chief suspect? Well, everyone.
