This storyline follows the Black Mask's destruction of Arkham Asylum in the Batman: Battle for the Cowl storyline. Dr. Jeremiah Arkham has rebuilt the Asylum following the design of his mad Uncle Amadeus. Intended as a model for enlightened treatment of mental illness, the building soon mutates into a torture house, and the inmates find themselves trapped in a living hell. And when Jeremiah starts hearing a voice from beyond the grave, it becomes painfully clear that the lunatics really have taken over the Asylum and he is forced to call in Batman to put down a riot.
