Another solid Elseworlds. In this one, Bruce is the man in charge of Arkham Asylum while still being the Bat at night, and a few different villains are still locked away even though we're in 1900 instead of the current age.

It works very well. Bruce has become a psychiatrist to try and stop the madness that led to his own parents' deaths, and he's fighting to help the people in Arkham regain their humanity. Everyone gets a nice moment or two to shine, and it's an enjoyable read.
A wonderful Elseworlds tale with vivid and unique art that places Bruce Wayne as Chief Psychologist of Arkham Asylum at the turn of the 20th century. Although not the greatest writing from a Batman story this compact little tale is sure to please those who wonder what might happen with well known characters in either a different time or place. Nice nod to the original style of Batman's suit in the original Detective Comics run.
Magnificent! I wish DC turned this into a series.
Victorian Gotham with Wayne as a Doctor at Arkham. Interesting that his methods neary cure Killer Croc, and Poison Ivy is just a suffragette gone mad. Should have been longer.
