marks the return of one of the last great American authors, Sam Kieth, with a stunning and new collection of dark, Gothic Tales. In Arkham Asylum, Dr. John Seward offers a modicum of sanity to the criminally insane, but the inmates will stop at nothing to take it from him. Desperate to keep the Institution alive, Seward assembles an especially bleak and Competitive Marching Band, but even the most incorruptible of men can only survive for so long in the company of those who want to kill them. With an average read time of just over four hours, Arkham Asylum is an immersive and captivating read that not only asks the questions of mind and morality, but also delves deep into the human heart. With a plot that spans the full spectrum of acceptability, Kieth has created one of the year’s most impressiveHBods.
