Summary

Unlike any Batman book you've ever read. A psychological horror masterpiece from the minds of Grant Morrison and Dave McKean now presented in a beautiful Absolute edition format.

BATMAN CLASSIC, RESTORED TO ITS ORIGINAL BEAUTY

The lunatics take control of the asylum and the Dark Knight descends into this heart of madness alongside them in Batman: Arkham Asylum, one of the most successful graphic novels of all time. Written by legendary comics creator Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman) and stunningly illustrated by Dave McKean (Sandman), this dark and cerebral tale remains as captivating now as when it was first published.

Every page has been painstakingly revived to its true color and quality by the artist, leaving a breathtaking final product that matches his original painted artwork.

Also includes more than 100 pages of behind-the-scenes content, including the complete annotated script, sketches, pinup gallery, and afterwords by Morrison, McKean, and series editor Karen Berger

Author Biography

Writer Grant Morrison is known for his innovative work on comics from the graphic novel Batman: Arkham Asylum to acclaimed runs on Animal Man and Doom Patrol, as well as his subversive creator-owned titles such as The Invisibles, Seaguy and WE3. Grant has written best-selling runs on JLA, Seven Soldiers of Victory and New X-Men and helped to reinvent the DC Universe in The Multiversity, All Star Superman, 52, Batman, Batman & Robin and Batman Incorporated.More Recently Grant has had his creator owned series Happy! turned into a TV series on the SYFY network. He also made his return to monthly comics in 2018 with The Green Lantern.

Dave McKean was born in Taplow, Berkshire in 1963. He attended Berkshire College of Art and Design from 1982-86 and, before leaving, started working as an illustrator.

In 1986 he met author Neil Gaiman with whom he has collaborated on many projects since. Their first book, Violent Cases (1987), has been printed in many editions worldwide, and adapted for the stage. Since then they have produced Black Orchid (1988), Signal To Noise (1990) for The Face magazine and Mr. Punch (1975). Dave has contributed all the cover illustrations and design for the popular Sandman series of graphic novels, and a collection of this work, Dust Covers, was published in 1998.

Arkham Asylum (1989) written by Scottish author/playwrite Grant Morrison, still the single most successful graphic novel ever published, was also illustrated by Dave. 1995 saw collaborations with the Rolling Stones (The Voodoo Lounge), and Rachel Pollack (The Vertigo Tarot).
