Is Arkham Unhinged any good?

Postby Mr_Weasel_ » Jan 24th, 2014, 11:36 am

Hi all!

The title pretty much sums up what the topic is about. I'm thinking of buying Arkham Unhinged volumes 1&2 but haven't read too many positive reviews on it. To those who have read it, do you reccomend it? What are you thoughts on it? I would very much appreciate all inputs'!

Thank you all in advance! :adam:

I liked them although the series starts off really good and gets disappointing towards the end

The stories of Unhinged are good as standalones, but the biggest problem is that they start to ignore the game plot and just contradict pretty much everything. The Azrael story and the Hatter story, for example.
The first few ones are based on the Arkham City Stories, so they're good to read. You can read those, and End Game, since they actually add to the Arkhamverse story rather than messing it up.

^^ What .he said, good writing, but the plot is more of an AU Arkham City

I haven't read any of the comics but they do seem interesting on how it takes before Arkham City

I'm currently on vol 2, how does it get worse? I have debated for a while as to if I should get the other volumes.
