Joker's Magnum Opus continues as Batman enters Arkham Asylum to find that the place has been turned into a warped royal court where he is the unwilling king. Giving each of Batman's main enemies an office within this twisted noble household is one of Snyder's most ingenious contributions to the Dark Knight's mythos, as these are roles that could continue being played well beyond Death of the Family.

Of particular interest in the story is the sick tapestry woven by Dollmaker and the intriguing images displayed on it; something big hides in plain sight, and it is almost better not knowing what it is. About the art, of course, what else is there to say except that it's magnificent? The sequence where Batman fights his royal knights is treated with a fantastic visual effect that makes it feel like a dreamscape, and Joker has never looked more terrifying. This one's a must read.
