    Little Bruce Wayne meets some strange tenants in an apartment building owned by Wayne Enterprises. The Joker, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Penguin, and all the classic villains are young people and children, and Commissioner Gordon is the supervisor of the apartments. The villains only want to have fun and play games with little Brucie! But Alfred insists that they should follow the rules and not make trouble. I liked the comedy in this comic!

The Joker, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Penguin, and all the classic villains are young people and children, and Commissioner Gordon is the supervisor of the apartments. The villains only want to have fun and play games with little Brucie! But Alfred insists that they should follow the rules and not make trouble. I liked the comedy in this comic! The Joker is always getting up to crazy hijinks, and dragging Bruce along. They get up an insane game of pirates at a pool party, and that is the perfect backdrop for some truly hilarious adventures. I like the pacing of the book, and there is plenty of action and silliness to keep your interest. I think it is interesting that the villains are not evil; they are just outlandish and wild. There is some sweet character development, especially for Bruce. The plot does a good job of balancing a lot of different characters. They are all memorable and fun! I love the colorful art style! It really draws the reader into the story. The colors are so bright and fun. I love the funny expressions on the characters’ faces and the costume changes that they do in the imaginary pirate game. It’s a fun story and I enjoyed reading it (even as an adult)! Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a free and honest review. All the opinions stated here are my own true thoughts, and are not influenced by anyone.

    Fairly cute and nonsensical. Perfect for kids and admonishes using your imagination. Cute Easter eggs throughout as well.

    In Arkham Apartments, kids have special powers, no grown-ups, and their imagination feels real. Young Bruce Wayne, whose family owns the apartment building, is drawn to the fun and excitement there. He's determined to find out what's so different about this apartment building. Billed as a "unique, cartoony take on a Gotham City unlike any we've certainly seen before," this book certainly is exactly that. It's meant for readers aged 8 to 12, much like DC's Tiny Titans and Teen Titans Go! lines. Th In Arkham Apartments, kids have special powers, no grown-ups, and their imagination feels real. Young Bruce Wayne, whose family owns the apartment building, is drawn to the fun and excitement there. He's determined to find out what's so different about this apartment building. Billed as a "unique, cartoony take on a Gotham City unlike any we've certainly seen before," this book certainly is exactly that. It's meant for readers aged 8 to 12, much like DC's Tiny Titans and Teen Titans Go! lines. The two creators had worked on Tiny Titans, actually, and there's a sample comic from that in the back. This means there's no Dark Knight, Thomas and Martha Wayne are still very much alive, and Commissioner Gordon is more like the superintendent at the apartment building. The art style resembled the kind of drawings you would see children in that age range use, so it really will appeal to them. The colors are bright and happy, especially when the Joker and his friends at Arkham are playing. In contrast, Wayne Manor is full of grays and blues and distances so vast it takes Bruce twenty minutes to walk to the dining room. Assuming he even finds the correct one, because he often doesn't. If Bruce turns a corner in Arkham, he finds another room with another resident, not more stretches of hallway. Bruce is very literal in the beginning, unable to see the apartment building's smile at him or the vivid colors in the sky above it. This is definitely a function of imagination, and the Joker has it in spades. I laughed at some of the nods to comics, cartoons, and movie versions of Batman. He has a huge rogues gallery, a fair number of whom are mentioned in this volume, and even Ace makes an appearance as his puppy. This is not a side to the characters that I've seen before, which is at once startling and fun to see. As much as I'm not the target demographic for the book by a large margin, it's still an adorable book to read and a nice change from some of the grimdark story arcs that show up in the comics.

It stars a young Bruce Wayne, who is drawn to the fun and excitement going on at Arkham Apartment complex and is determined to find the reason why this particular apartment residence is full of so much fun and laughter. Rich kid Bruce Wayne is intrigued by a nearby apartment building where a bunch of odd older kids seem to be having a much better time than he is, living in a mansion with his rich parents and their butler. So, he sneaks out of his house to investigate the Arkham Apartment complex with his trusty dog – Ace. Art Baltazar penned the graphic novel. For the most part, it is written rather well. Surprisingly, the narrative works on several levels: the most obvious being that it’s a story of a young boy seeking and discovering his own uniqueness by being open to the uniqueness of others around him. It also works as a metaphor for how Bruce Wayne became the obsessive Batman in order to deal with the craziness of the world surround them. Secretly, Bruce is absolutely infatuated with each and every one of them and desperately to be part of their fun world even though he's a bit scared by it. Franco Aureliani is the penciler for the graphic novel. Since he was the only penciler, the artistic flow of the trade paperback flowed exceptionally well. Aureliani's thickly inked characters are cartoony to the extreme and the reader has no problem imagining the panels as being animated. Although ultra-simplified, the characterizations of each and every one of the different baby Bat-villains come through as the villains are depicted more troublesome, outlandish, and wild than evil, which seems rather apropos to the target audience All in all, ArkhaManiacs is wonderful graphic novel that is absolutely fun filled with silliness and light-heartedness.
