4.0 out of 5 stars Batman. The Long Halloween, 22 Feb. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Batman: Long Halloween (Paperback)
I have been an on and off fan of the Batman comics for since the eighties ever since I received The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told as a gift. Batman the Long Halloween is one of the better stories.
The story is essentially a mystery as the various players in Gotham city attempt to unravel the identity of a murderer called Holiday. It's a clever story that integrates the main story with the origin of two-face. The writers know there characters well and you get the feeling while reading it that a hell of a lot of planning went into it. The artwork is bold and nightmarish.
The only negative thing I can say about it is that it doesn't reinvent or reveal anything new in character of Batman the way Year One or the Killing Joke did. The Long Halloween is a brilliantly crafted story but it doesn't have the artistry to become an all time classic.
