Superb Sequel To The Long Halloween,
This review is from: Batman Dark Victory TP (Paperback)
This Graphic Novel written & illustrated by Jeff Loeb & Tim Sale is the continuation of the event's first started in their previous novel Batman The Long Halloween.
Batman is continuing his fight against crime against the criminals of Gotham City were a territory war is taking place between a deranged Harvey Dent now known as Two Face & Sofia Falcone-Gigante who now runs the Falcone crime syndicate.
On top of these event's Batman is trying to capture the Hangman who is the latest serial killer in Gotham City who is murdering the Police officers of Gotham.
Dick Graysons origin story also features in this novel in a superb retelling of the Robin mythos, Dick Grayson who is adopted by Bruce Wayne who will eventually become Robin who will then aid Batman on his war on crime in Gotham City.
This follow up has a great intriguing story & superb illustrations that I have put this into my top 10 favourite Batman story's.
This exellent novel covers the following, Harvey(Two Face) Dent & his turf war on crime boss Sofia Falcone-Gigante, A new district attorney named Janice Porter who despises Batmans vigilantism, A new serial killer in Gotham named The Hangman whos killing police officers, An Arkham Asylum breakout, Batman fighting Soloman Grundy, The Joker & Scarecrow kidnapping & then murdering Janice Porter & the final reveal of the Hangman & the apprehension of Harvey(Two Face)Dent.
lucky for the Dark Knight that help comes in the form of Dick Grayson who's parent's are killed in a Mob shootout is taken in by Bruce Wayne who eventually see potential in Dick Grayson & trains him up to be his partner in the war on crime in Gotham City as Robin.
This story has mature themes & maybe unsuitable for younger readers but for the more mature reader's it's is a exellent graphic novel full of intrigue & action with a very engaging plot that equals it's predecessor Batman The Long Halloween in it's quality storytelling & illustration.
This is a highly recomended purchase for Batman fan's of graphic novels & is the conclusion to the events of a previous graphic novel.
