A tale of vengeance weaved by the Joker who relates Poison Ivy going after the real estate developers that were destroying the land when she first got her powers.
Comics BulletinDespite it's weaknesses, this is a fun book! Emphasis on fun! It's nothing especially substantial but it's a nice light snack. So sit down in your most comfortable chair with your favorite beverage and sink your teeth into this fanciful Tale from the Crypt, uhm I mean Joker's Asylum.
IGNIn the end, this third one-shot in the Joker's Asylum mini is largely forgettable, and will likely dissapear into the vast pool of bargain Batman one-shots found in any convention long box.
ComicBookBinAside from this morally-primitive storyline, this issue fails to create any horror or suspense. You can practically see everything coming a mile away which only serves to make Batman look even dumber. Well, maybe people were getting tired of the all-mighty uber-Bat but this is really a poor showing for any heroic character. The art is also rather uninspired. The only time it perks up is when it comes to showing cheesecake shots of Poison Ivy-- which just cements the fact that this book is intended to make her look good.
