I picked up the first ish, mostly because I loved the look of the art. Alex Sanchez has put together an amazing series of illustrations. Really amazing, in fact. I'm blown away by his work.

The story isn't bad, either. Brief, simple one-shot, with a fairly fun twist ending. Nothing mind blowing, but villain-focused stories are tough to pull off. This one works, although it once again makes TV and TV execs out to be the real bad guys. A hackneyed point. but oh well. The cute little disclaimer in the final panel made me chuckle. That little wink-wink at the end put all the moralizing in a delightful context.

I'll probably check out Asylum #2, mostly because Jason Aaron is writing it. Too bad Sanchez isn't drawing next ish.

Anybody else read this? What did ya think?

I picked it up and then set it back down. I had too many as it was.

I picked it up and enjoyed it. I like a good Joker story and thought this one was nice. I also thought the art was pretty spot on for a story from the Joker's perspective. I'd expect a more refined approach for Penguin and the other styles to reflect the other characters. I'll certainly pick up the next one since Aaron is awesome, but I'll probably pick up the others as well.

I was going to pre-order the Juan Doe one but I already had to much stuff. If I hear good things on the others I might check out the trade.

Yeah, I pre-ordered these with DCBS -- they were cheap and I'm a sucker for Batman villains.
