Review:Batman: The Long Halloween is a 13 issue series set in the Year One continuity following Batman. He is tracking down a serial killer targeting the mob crime boss Carmine "The Roman" Falcone's empire as the killer strikes on holidays. It's up to Batman, James Gordan, and Harvey Dent to stop the killer and bring down the Falcone empire. Batman stories usually fall into two camps they can either be grounded in the criminal aspect the underworld of Gotham City or end up into these supernatural mysteries, and Batman, The Long Halloween, is the former not the latter. Where it's Batman trying to take down the mob and his Rogue's gallery while being present take a back seat to let the criminal syndicates play the primary antagonists. It's a nice change of pace. Batman is my favorite superhero part of the reason why he as many great villains and the arcs from taking down immoral assassins to giant walking zombies born on Monday there is no shortage of material. That's the beauty of The Long Halloween; even though the villains are mobsters, it still is one of the better stories up there. Certainly better than most modern-day graphic novels. The serial killer mystery element behind the plot is also well written. It keeps you guessing although by a certain point it does become obvious so there are no curb balls but its suspenseful and like an old noir movie. The art is another highlight of the comic the panels and transitions flow in a way that it's almost cinematic. At the same time, I didn't like some of the aesthetic choices such as Catwoman's costume and Bruce Wayne's design. I can still recognize their merit, unlike the Dark Knight Returns, where I hated the art and preferred the animated movie due to the ugliness of the graphic novel's art. I especially have to praise the flow of the comic as while reading it had me hooked, there where no panels that took me out of that flow. It was truly cinematic. My favorite scene had to be Falcone's Birthday August 2, that was the best chapter of the novel. In the end, I loved Batman The Long Halloween. It truly deserves its classic status. The mystery is a thrill from start to finish; it highlights the underground world of Gotham City. The only real complaint I had with the graphic novel is the story did end with loose ends, and while that doesn't ruin the story, it would have been better with an airtight ending. Regardless, I would say Batman: The Long Halloween is one of the best, if not the best Batman stories in the market. A must-read, whether you like Batman comics, movies, games, or animations.

Review:This is a nice little collection of a Batman series from the late '90s titled, "The Long Halloween." Each book takes place during a different month in the span of a year, which is a clever approach. Jeph Loeb is a great writer, he has a knack for writing a good mystery which is perfect for a Batman story. Sometimes the interactions between mobsters gets a little slow, but most of the time the story is intriguing. Artist Tim Sale adds a very bleak, noir quality to the images. His illustrations are hit and miss with me. I appreciate the looming shadows he adds to Wayne Manor or the gothic architecture of Arkham Asylum and Gotham City itself. He also draws a decent Batman and a sexy Catwoman. However, his illustrations of Joker, Scarecrow and Poison Ivy are a bit nutty looking. It's effective overall, but when Loeb later used Jim Lee's art for the "Hush" story, it was a major improvement! If you haven't read this story, you may recognize some plot points that were later included in the 2008 movie, The Dark Knight. This is not a perfect book, it has a few shortcomings - hence the 4-star rating, but overall I definitely recommend giving it a read. The more I read, the more I had to keep reading. Read more

Review:There's a very good reason this comic influenced The Dark Knight. It's so good! I love the mystery to this story. Action-packed Batman is always fun, but Batman made his mark because he's the world's greatest detective. Trying to solve the mystery along side Batman and experiencing all the twists and turns is so rewarding. The dialogue is also very well written, and Loeb gives each character their own great bits of solid dialogue. I always enjoy reading his stories. As much as I love a jam-packed Batman story like Batman: Hush, I feel like some villains should have been cut out. They're fun to have since you don't expect it, but I was overwhelmed. This is a smaller story that doesn't need the complexity of a Justice League story. To be completely honest, I love Batman: Hush, but only by a small percent more than The Long Halloween. The fact that this can contend with Hush shows just how great this comic truly is. Batman: The Long Halloween is (to no one's surprise) another great Batman story. Read more

Review:I am relatively new to comics, having only read a handful so far. Nevertheless, The Long Halloween is one of the best detective/crime stories that is right at home in the dark, rainy, hopeless world of Gotham City. The artwork comes to life before your eyes. Narration and dialog is so character driven you can almost hear the depth and tone of their voice in your head. In the crime ridden city of Gotham, Jim Gordon, Harvey Dent & The Batman are pushed to their limit, as each man will struggle with whether they are good or bad. Or if, in such a corrupt world, good even exists. A mysterious killer who murders solely on the dates of holidays will change the lives of criminal, police, villain and vigilante forever. Read more

Review:If you are looking for a more definitive Batman story you will be looking hard. Strong characterizations throughout. There are no weak characters in this story. Let's cover the story, briefly. Somebody in Gotham is picking off members of the Falcone and Maroni crime families, the caveat. Each murder occurs on the same day as a holiday, beginning on Halloween 🎃 and lasting a full calendar year. Batman, Jim Gordon and Gotham's highly driven DA Harvey Dent make a pact to end the reign of the so called "Holiday" killer. What makes this such an enthralling read is the pace of the story and the depth the characters is perfectly balanced. Firstly, Bruce Wayne/Batman and his (their) relationship with Semina Kyle/Catwoman. The dynamic between the four personas is what we've come to expect. The difference is the juxtaposition between Wayne/Kyle, who at times display unexpected vulnerabilities compared to Batman/Catwoman who are always in control. It's a quite striking thread that runs throughout the story. Harvey Dent's transformation from white knight DA to the conflicted Two-Face is excellently brought to life. Jim Gordon is a continuation of who we meet in Year One. The cameo appearances from Batman's rouge gallery is brilliant as each of their personalities are expressed perfectly. I would have given 5 stars were it not for two aspects. 1. The portrayal of the Sullivan gang (who are of Irish extraction) is such an American stereotype of what an Irish person acts and sounds like. As an Irish person I was a little put off by it. 2. The ending was a little loose. Not sure what the reason was for it. If it had ended a few pages sooner it would have been perfect. Read more

Review:*Contains spoilers* I'll come right out and say it: I didn't like the ending. This is a who done it and I didn't like who did it. Despite that I really enjoyed reading this. The story has an epic feel and there's a serious exploration of actions and their consequences. We also get to meet a lot of interesting characters along the way. There's an interview at the beginning of this edition with Christopher Nolan and David S. Goyer who discuss the influence of this story on Batman Begins and The Dark Knight and you can really see that here (particularly on Batman Begins) in terms of theme. Also this book's Jim Gordon really does feel like the same character as the one in the Dark Knight trilogy. Well worth a read. Read more

Review:With the upcoming Batman movie, and rumours that it is partly inspired by the Long Halloween, I was interested in picking it up and I was not disappointed. Great detective/crime thriller story which keeps you guessing, a gritty mafia story which explores themes such as loyalty, family and relationships. Provides a grounded depiction of life in Gotham City and the turmoil within the GCPD. Also found the exploration of the relationship between Batman/Catwoman, Bruce Wayne/Selina Kyle really interesting, and the origin of Two-Face is heartbreaking. Highly recommend to anyone interested in Batman. Read more

Review:It's been a long time since I read comics and I got back into reading Batman with the New 52 issues. After looking at suggestions for "must have" batman grownup novels I found that "The Long Halloween" was mentioned in everyone's Top 10's on podcasts and YouTube / websites. I wasn't disappointed, in fact this story is amazing. It's a true detective story. A killer is on the loose murdering on holidays (Halloween, Valentine's, New Year etc). Batman has to use all of his detective skills to find out who is responsible. Brilliant story with a twist and a great ending that will keep you entertained. I love that the story involves the original crime bosses of Gotham including the Falcone family. The artwork is much more simple than the New 52 but not as basic as The Frank Miller books and I found it to be visually stunning and perfect for the story. Definitely one of my Top 10 Batman reads now and I will definitely revisit it the same as I would a great Batman movie. Just grab a copy of this one and you won't be disappointed. Read more

Review:A great little printing, good price at £10 & a nice product that will stand up to multiple reads. The actual story itself is a masterpiece. Arguably the best graphic novel I’ve ever read. Ignore anyone not giving it the 5 star treatment. This is a great starting place (after year one) to begin reading Batman comics. You can feel Gotham is alive in this book. The lighting (well, the dark!) the crime families... the super villains beginning to rise. All masterfully dealt with by Loeb & Sale. There is so much more to the dark knight than the movies and tv shows... what on Earth are you waiting for? Read more
