    And the first volume has a handy-dandy diagram of the sail set of a square-rigged ship (for those of us who have never sailed an 80 gun, 19th century HMS)!

    Thanks, guys. I remember not being too impressed with Arkham Asylum when it came out, probably because in the late 80s, there was a glut of Batman graphic novels coming out--there was a glut of EVERYTHING comics coming out; which lead to the comic market crash of the early 90s (I was fortunate to get out before that happened.) But over the years, I've come to appreciate AA more....

    I always loved Arkham, but more for McKean's art. And you're right about that glut. They felt the need to do many, many tie-ins each time a movie came out, and anyone with any popularity had a story they wanted to do, and DC let them.

    I'll get at least one package today, but in the meantime, I mentioned the glut of Batman graphic novels that filled 1989 amd 1990. Most of them I was able to dump when I got out of the scene, but here's one of the ones that I couldn't. So it's now in my collection thread. I haven't read it in years but it wasn't all that interesting.

    Digital Justice by Pepe Moreno, 1990. All images were computer-generated; Story and art by Moreno. Basically, The Joker is a virus in the matrix, Batman is a digital recreation to fight the virus. Still, it's A 1st...

    Package from Washington State in the mailbox. I blame DAN for this purchase. I probably could have happily lived the rest of my life and never known about this website...

    Too bad the postman rolled it up to get it to fit...
