stunning sequel to Long Halloween,
This review is from: Batman: Dark Victory (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.
