ArkhaManiacs is Art Baltazar and Franco providing their unique, cartoony take on a certain apartment building (Arkham) in Gotham City and the people (mostly!) who live there.

There’s an apartment building in Gotham City full of life: kids with special powers, pirates in the swimming pool, even a croc (or two!). Young Bruce Wayne is drawn to the fun and excitement he sees going on at the Arkham Apartments, but to Wayne Enterprises, it’s just another property they own. Bruce is determined to find out why this apartment building is full of so much fun and laughter. What exactly is going on over there? Time to sneak over when no one is looking…even though it’s like the house is laughing at him! HA HA HA!

With ArkhaManiacs, Art Baltazar and Franco return to the DC Universe and provide their unique, cartoony take on a Gotham City quite unlike any we’ve seen before!

Art Baltazar and Franco Aureliani are New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning authors

Art and Franco’s Tiny Titans series (DC Comics) was a huge success, winning multiple Eisner Awards

Features young Bruce Wayne and other popular Gotham characters

Middle grade graphic novels are on the rise in popularity and sales, and ArkhaManiacs fills a gap for lighthearted, fun middle grade graphic novels in the market

Ages 8-12 years

Born in Chicago, Art Baltazar found his way early to comic book art and has been cartooning ever since he can recall, self-publishing in 1994 with such titles as The Cray-Baby Adventures, Gyro-Man, Captain Camel & the Space Chicken, Jimmy Dydo, Lunar Lizard, Meteor Mite and the famous Patrick the Wolf Boy. Art also created an autobiographical graphic novel called The Big Amoeba for Platinum Studios. He lives outside of Chicago with his wife, Rose, and their children Sonny, Gordon, and Audrey.

Bronx-born writer and artist Franco Aureliani has been drawing comics since he could hold a crayon. Currently residing in upstate New York with his wife, Ivette, and son, Nicolas, he spends most of his days in his Batcave-like studio where he produces DC’s Tiny Titans comics. In 1995, Franco founded Blindwolf Studios, an independent art studio where he and fellow creators can create children’s comics. Franco is the creator, artist and writer of Weirdsville, L’il  Creeps, and Eagle All Star, as well as the co-creator and writer of Patrick the Wolf  Boy. When he’s not writing or drawing, Franco also teaches high school art.
