It's a really different sort of Batman story, and I really like it. I just don't hear people talk about it much. I'm not sure if that's because other people don't like it, or because it's fairly obscure.


truthfully, the Cult is one of two "big" Batman stories i've just never gotten around to reading (the other being Arkham Asylum). and i don't really have much desire to get around to either one...

Well chappy Arkham Asylum is one overrated pile of freakin' crap. Morrison was tainted early for me with that pile of crap that cost me 25 bucks back when I was still scraping change together to buy the cheapest beer possible. Its stupid, a lot of wasted crap so Morrison can be "edgy and weird" and all that crap. Long Halloween was a much more enjoyable Batman read than AA.

My one word review: crap.

Now the Cult im interested in.

It's a shame that book isn't around anymore. I bet it'd be even more awesome now that Jim Gordon is back.


I'd kill for another series of this with Gordon in charge. KILL!!!

Of course Chap and and GOSD got me hooked on that series. They've been bleeding me dry for years now. :cry:

it's really not even Morrison...it's the art. i HATE that shit.

although i do think my thoughts on the story (from what i've heard of it) would be pretty similar to Aaron_W's masterful review. :-D

You should try reading it again. I know the feeling of broken-ass-iness but you might enjoy it now more than you did in the past. If you want, you can borrow my copy.

I got the trade with the script where it explains everything Morrison was doing. Makes it much better.

And even though I hate you with an uncontrollable passion, that offer goes for you too, Chap.

Read Arkham Asylum: Living Hell by Dan Slott. It's much much better than the Morrison AA IMO
