CBR Review: Joker's Asylum II: Mad Hatter #1

I recently reviewed Joker's Asylum II: Mad Hatter #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "While five-week mini-events like 'Joker’s Asylum II' are pretty hit or miss with me, there’s usually one book that jumps out as worth giving a look. For everyone, it’s often a different book. For my fellow reviewer Tim Callahan, it was the Harley Quinn one-shot because of Joe Quinones’ art and, for me, it was the Mad Hatter issue because of Bill Sienkiewicz. Unfortunately, Sienkiewicz doesn’t do the art by himself here, inking/finishing Keith Giffen’s pencils/layouts, but the finished product is interesting and appealing. Throw in some pretty good writing by Landry Walker and you’ve got a nice comic that acts as a quintessential Mad Hatter story."
