Batman to battle through the minds of his enemies in Arkham Dreams

I don't like most cross overs.  They are normally money grabs but every so often one shows that promises to do something with characters that has never been done before.  That is feeling I get with this cross over between IDW and DC.

Arkham dreams promises to have Batman face off against Maxx a character many comic fans remember for his strong run in the 90s.  Maxx is going to be used here in an interesting way.  Maxx can use the mind landscape or outback and merge them with reality.  That power is going to be used here to enter into the minds of many of Batman's most notorious villains.  With all the fun psychoanalysis of Batman's villains this is a way to take that element of Batman up it up a notch.  He will no longer just be analyzing these foes as a detective but litterally entering into the world of their derangement.

It is also cool to see Max creator Sam Kieth on this project and his work is well suited for it as well.

Press Release:
