Batman: Arkham Asylum: "Protecting the Swag"
Posted: Tuesday August 25th, 2009 by

As I was digging through the gaming news failing miserably to find something that inspired me to draw a comic, I ran across an article at Destructoid where one of their reporters was sent a straitjacket stamped with an "Arkham" logo (the asylum for the criminally insane in Batman's universe) and his name to promote the release of Batman: Arkham Asylum.

Sending attention getting swag is a way game companies try to influence media response to their title before reviewers ever even sit down with the title. If I got something like that though, it wouldn't make it to my collectibles shelf before Ted commandeered it for his own use.

Of course, beyond an excuse to "dress up", this was also an excuse to draw Ted as the Joker. Somehow, it seems to fit.
