Does it still count as "mystery meat" if you wish you DIDN'T know what it was?
In keeping with the theme of reposting high-quality comics from the old s_d...
I'm not terribly fond of Dan Slott, but I consider his "Arkham Asylum: Living Hell" miniseries to be a must-read for any Batman fan. It ranges from darkly humorous to outright horrifying -- sometimes both at once.
The young lady there is an example of "outright horrifying," but the body being referred to is a fairly major plot element, so I won't spoil it, even though the trade's been out for years.
The screaming guy with the mustache is Warren White, one of the mini's viewpoint characters. We've seen him again occasionally in various Gotham-related comics (most notably, an issue of Paul Dini's recent Detective run, and the "Face the Face" trade -- although I forget whether that was a mini in and of itself, or an arc from one of the Bat-books) as "The Great White Shark" -- much the worse for wear (both physically and mentally) as a result of the events in this miniseries. If his brief appearances in those books intrigued you, you probably ought to get this.
