* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail:In one of the anniversary paperbacks, Grant Morrison recalls how an early version of the script was passed around for people to look at. Most of them thought the psychological horror and heavy symbolism was not only a failure, but the dumbest Batman story ever. They all laughed their asses off, and in the paperback, Morrison asks them WhosLaughingNow.

* FoeRomanceSubtext[=/=]HomoeroticSubtext: Part of Morrison's interpretation of Batman. Joker, sensing Batman's fragile state of mind and repressed sexuality, deliberately fucks with him, the most memorable part being when he [[TheComicallySerious slaps Batman's ass]].

* FreudWasRight: {{Invoked}}. If you read Grant's notes, you'll find that a LOT of the scenes in this story have to do with [[ChasteHero Batman's screwed-up sexuality]]. And it was mostly based on Jungian psychology, an outgrowth of Freud's work. Even {{Lampshaded}} in the comic when Arkham goes to study with Jung in Europe.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** In the notes to the script included in the 15th anniversary edition, Morrison admits that this interpretation of the Batman (as an insecure, sexually repressed, infantile mama's boy) can only apply to this comic, that it's meant to be a death and rebirth for Batman. {{Invoked}} by Morrison in response to all the interpretations of Batman as [[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns borderline sociopathic]], and partly because this was one of Morrison's and [=McKean=]'s earliest professional projects.
** Though the abstract storytelling makes it hard to know for sure, the story also leaves open the suggestion that Bruce Wayne may (or may not) really be either...
*** A) Possessed by an evil spirit that gives him a symbiotic connection with Arkham Asylum.
*** B) The latest reincarnation of the [[PsychoPsychologist deranged psychologist]] who founded the asylum.
** Most incarnations of Doctor Destiny have him as a 7-foot tall, muscular titan with a skull for a head. Morrison re-imagined him as an emaciated cripple, trapped in a wheelchair, wasted by his inability to dream. This incarnation was used by Creator/NeilGaiman in ComicBook/TheSandman, to good effect.

** The implications, and imagery of sexual abuse, in the Arkham family are disturbing enough without Amadeus Arkham talking about his daughter Harriet.

*** Implications? The panel where Amadeus is in the carnival and facing the "Tunnel of Love" was disturbing enough where it really wasn't a mystery what went on between him and his mother.
