Arkham Asylum



Batman "Arkham Reborn" 2010






Arkham Asylum "Living Hell"



Arkham Asylum is where all of Batman's crazy villians go to cool off after getting their asses' kicked by The Batman.
Eventually the villians escape to terrorize Gotham city once again and get their asses' kicked once again by The Batman.
I think Batman should rethink his crime fighting skills and include a few weapons for making his worst villians pay the ultimate price for their crimes, yknow, like when he first appeared back in '38 toting guns.

DC Checkerboard Issues














































DC Checkerboard's were released in 1966/67 and remind me of my childhood since I used to read my cousin's comics way back when I was a lil' tyke.

I own all these DC checkerboard issues and I am on a never ending quest to obtain all of them.

Some were scanned still in their protecto bags.

Batman



 "The Joker's Original Robberies!"
The Joker has gathered a group of criminals and his very own sidekick, a midget clown named Gaggy to commit a series of heists stealing an original or first edition items of antiquated or historical value. As usual the clown prince of crimes thefts bring the attention of Batman and Robin, who after a few bungled attempts at stopping Joker from stealing original models of famous inventions, and an original typewriter, they manage to stop the Joker and his gang from stealing the original Gotham City Hall, and turn the crooks over to the police.
