A must for every Batman/comic fan!
on 14 August 2005
I started reading Batman comics after watching Batman Begins. I first read 'The Long Halloween' and 'Dark Victory', both from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, and I suggest to read those too, you will not regret it because Loeb & Sale are the best! They bring Batman to life, with a great story line and marvellous drawings.
This book, 'Haunted Knight' contains 3 stories, made a deep impression on me. Gripping and dark, these stories show Batmans distress from the past and present. He suffers and you share in his grief. Does he have a choice? The city has chosen him to do what he has to.
In the first story he has to deal with the Scarecrow. And there's also room for some romance in his life,... or not?
The second one is about the Mad Hatter kidnapping children, including Gordon's daughter. Moving scenes from the past, when Bruce's parents were murdered. One page almost brought me to tears, read it and you will understand.
The third one is... well, let's say out of the ordinary.
I enjoyed this comic and I'm sure you will too!
