9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Mr. S. W. Steel VINE VOICE on 27 Nov. 2009
Format: Paperback
This is the follow up to The Long Halloween, and picks up directly after that storyline finished. This book deals with the rise of Two Face from the ashes of Harvey Dent, and continues the story lines of Commissioner Gordon, Catwoman, Bruce Wayne, and of course, the Falcones'. Someone is copying the crimes of Holiday from the Long Halloween, who goes by the name of the Hangman, and it is up to Batman to solve these crimes whilst keeping all the other threads of his life going.
Like the Long Halloween before it, this is quite along graphic novel and has quite a few twists and turns in it. The artwork is of the same style too, so if you didn't like it before, you won't like it now! The introduction of Robin is quite nicely handled too, though i did feel it didn't have enough time to develop properly and could have meritted a third volume dealing with this storyline a bit more.
The reason i can't give this five stars is that it is almost an exact replay of the Long Halloween with a few adjustments, and while that is no bad thing, this just doesn't offer enough that is new and original. The Long Halloween was quite different to anything out at the time, and this book doesn't really spark enough for me. That isn't to say that this is a bad book - it isn't. It just needed something extra to put it up in the top echelon of Batman stories.
This is definitely one for your collection, but only if you have read The Long Halloween, or it won't make much sense!

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson on 8 Dec. 2003
Format: Paperback
In this sequel to Batman: The Long Halloween, a new District Attorney has plans to clean up Gotham, and her plans include cleaning up Batman. But, someone is playing Hangman, and with each new game, someone in the police department gets hanged. As if things aren't bad enough, a mass breakout from Arkham puts a lot of super-villains on the street (including Two-Face, Joker, Solomon Grundy, Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and Penguin).
This is another great graphic novel, and a worthy sequel to The Long Halloween. I thought the story was nice and gripping (just like a Batman story should be!), while the illustrations were wonderfully done, making the whole read that much better. I enjoyed the Catwoman character once again, and thought that the author did a great job with the Robin character. I highly recommend this book to any, and every, Batman fan!

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer on 24 July 2003
Format: Paperback
The Long Halloween was a stunning trade paperback, and this sequel is the same. Unfortunately, a bit too much the same!
Basically someone is killing the mob family leaders one by one, on different holidays, leaving a clue each time in the form of a hangman game. Batman tries to unravel
the clues but then the killings start targeting cops too.
The story is very similar to TLH, but that isn't such a bad thing, as it is a great story, with Batman, Catwoman and Gordon all desperately trying to unravel the
mystery of the killer. The artwork is dark and gothic, exactly as Batman should be. Tying in the debut of Dick Grayson as Robin is a great move, especially as he
plays a minor role which proves important without overshadowing the main story. Definitely recommended.
There are rumours that the author and artist will do a follow up to cover Catwoman's journey to Italy.

Dark Victory captures the events following Long Halloween. Loeb and Sale provide more of the same twists and turns that made Long Halloween so encapturing, as well as showcasing a number of Batman's finest foes and introducing Dick Grayson as Robin.

A lot of people criticise Dark Victory for its similarity to Long Halloween. However, I believe the similarity is a good thing as it's supposed to be a continution of that tale. So I don't believe the story telling process should change.

If you liked Long Halloween, you'll like this because it follows on. If you like Batman, you'll like this because it involves so many familiar faces from the lore. A win-win situation really!

This is the follow up to The Long Halloween which is fantastic, and it's rare to get a worthy follow up to a story so good and Dark Victory does not disappoint. If you truly are a batman fan and liked the first one than you should get this, it gives you the ultimate ending to the story.
Like the first one you get a rich roster of characters, a rogues gallery that uses a lot of characters well and most of all BATMAN, all the richness of story, supporting characters and villains do not take away from the dark knight himself. This is a book that I'll definitely be revisiting.

I would recommend reading Long Halloween before this. Although not essential it will help get you up to speed on the story. The story can plod a long a little at times but overall its a very enjoyable read. The artwork is quite interesting and a different take on Batman & Co. Robin is actually a fun little inclusion here as well. Its a good length and will keep you entertained throughout and its littered with a lot of charachters from Gotham's underbelly. All in all a good addition to any collection along with The Long Halloween.

The Story is great but the kindle zoom-in thing (or CosmiXology) cuts out way too much of the artwork, for instance if a character has killed someone but was drawn in part of the frame where there is no dialogue, it will be cut out, but if you don't zoom in then the text is too small to read on a standard Kindle Fire. Whoever does the cropping for the CosmiXology needs to take another look at this title!
