Since people seemed to like the Batman: Arkham story I posted a while ago, I thought that people might be interested in another Elseworld, one that takes... a little bit of a different route to most of the others.

Solo was a DC series where different, distinctive creators were basically given an entire issue to play with whatever stories and characters they wished.

Ah, Arkham Asylum. Hospital for the mentally ill, prison for supervillains and the most mainstream HP Lovecraft reference in comicbooks! Now, when people talk about Arkham, it's normally connected in some manner with how Batman is "incompetant" in some way for not stopping the Joker, Killer Croc and company from routinely escaping from the alleged SuperMax facility whenever the mood strikes them.

Well today I've decided to have a look at the numerous ways that, really, it's really the Arkham members of staff who are at fault here, not just Batman not having the time to physically watch his rogues 24/7 to ensure they don't go walk about. Plus Halloween is coming up, and this is kind of good subject matter for the season.

So, it's been two and a half months since I opened the project up for user contributions, and since that time I've received, among a number of choruses and "never just you" lines, half of the lines in the actual verses! I'm eternally grateful for the contributors so far, but we still have a few lines to fill, and that's where you guys come in! )

Remember, I need all submissions by 11:59p on February 14th! If you want to be a part of the project, please record something by that time!

As an avid Batman fan, I do think that there are several reasons why the Bat-verse stands so high among readers and is a source for so many great stories, and while the most important reason is up to everyone's own opinion, I think that it is hard to argue that one of the most important reasons isn't the supporting cast, their relationships with each other and the very world they inhabit. They all share a depth and complexity that is unfortunately relatively rare in such abundance in comic books and perhaps even more importantly, they can all be wrong in something. Especially Batman, as he has often been. They are flawed individuals, who just struggle to overcome those flaws and just do the right thing, not always succeeding, and to me makes them so relatable and even more heroic to me.
