Very Good Long Halloween :D

The Long Halloween is one of the most acclaimed and respected book related to Batman.  It is one of Jeph Loeb's greatest works and it is a strong testament that comics can have more depth then many of the shallow comics out today.

The Long Halloween is 13 issues long and cycles from one Halloween to the next.  The calendar events theme works lovely in this book.  Each month foreshadowing what the issue will be about.  Jeph Loeb is in top form in this story arc.  Time Sale's art is perfect to give that Noir grit this comic needs to be a great Murder Mystery it is.

Cheers! ("Happy Halloween"/"Merry Christmas"/"Etc")

    Proof I still love comics 0

    I was a huge fan of Jeph Loeb's Batman: Hush, so I was interested in reading some of his other Batman stories. I always heard a lot of praise given to The Long Halloween, so I decided to give that a try. And I'm happy to say that it lives up to the praise.The story takes place during the early days of Batman's career. The plot focuses on a killer named "Holiday", who (surprisingly enough) kills people on holidays. Batman, along with Harvey Dent and James Gordon, races to try and discover who...
