“Yes, it is!” My friend, comic writer and shop owner Brandon Wilt, just got a story he illustrated published in WHEN DRIVE-INS ATTACK #3. I just bought my copy from indyplanet.com using a run-over college paycheck of a whopping six dollars (yeah, I know, big stuff), but you can also show your support for local […]

There are lots of good comics out there that take place in Arkham Asylum. Most notably … Arkham Asylum, back when Grant Morrison wrote smart Batman comics.
