This comic is a one-shot set with 13 mini stories. The premise of
the overall storyline is that the criminals held in Arkham Asylum
have broken free of their cells, but cannot yet escape. The Joker
is running the show, and says that they need to wait until the
shift change, so to pass the time they should all tell scary
One of the tales told is of a team of Were Wolves that are running
around Gotham that police themselves. When one gets out of control,
a pack goes after it and takes care of it.
This one is a bit hard to classify, but in a nod or parody of sorts
to the Charlie Brown tale "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown",
there is a tale of Harley and Dennis, which sounds a lot like
Charley and Linus. These two men (Harley and Dennis) raise the
Pumpkin Sinister to take revenge on Blue Devil, because he stole
Harley's one true love, the red headed girl many years ago.
At the end of the story, it is revealed that it was not actually
the Joker, but Deadman who possessed the Joker that was using the
stories as a way to stall everyone until the police could get there
to put everyone back in their cells.
