      Batman:Me:What? 3 stars is good! It was way better than sucky bookBatman:Me:For reals Bats? Are we going to go there? This book had some draggy parts that bored me, but it did have Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Joker, Catwoman and The Scarecrow. it had some good stuffbut what the hell was with Soloman Grundy? He had no place in the frigging book.Plus the art made you look hot.Batman:Me:Now you are gonna grope me?Me:I could go for that.Batman:*image removed-censored*Me:Ok weirdoAre you really my h [...]

      If I met anyone that had never read a Batman book, this is probably the one I would recommend. This is the quintessential Batman story. The volume revolves around mobsters being murdered on each holiday and takes place early in Batman’s career. It’s a vehicle for Harvey Dent’s transition from Gotham City district attorney to Two-Face. Dent along with Captain Gordon and Bats (puts “Detective” back in DC comics) attempt to figure out who’s the killer.It features most of Batman’s rogu [...]

    3. Bradley on said:

      Pretty decent volume, full of all the favorites and the beginning of Two-Face, featuring a ton of mobsters and everyone, including the villains and Batman, are bright and shiny and new. It's Year One for the DC line, and it's just fine. Coherent, fun, even having a bit of depth.I like the quality and it's a good story. I especially loved all the interactions with Catwoman. Other than that? It's just the classic Two-Face opener. :) Good mystery, interesting reveal. Solid.

    4. Trish on said:

      This is my very first Batman comic. Apparently it's not too bad a place to start. I must admit I'm not too much into the big superhero comics but instead prefer independent comics (mostly because of the constant re-boots of universes etc).The Long Halloween is actually less of a superhero comic and more of a detective story. We have a bunch of mobsters such as Mr. Falcone and his Familia and on each holiday, someone dies. Thus, Batman (together with Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon) must [...]

    5. Donovan on said:

      "I believe in Gotham City."The Long Halloween deserves its hype. It's a classic Batman story and belongs among the greatest like Batman Year One, The Dark Knight Returns, and The Killing Joke. I have to say, this is probably Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's best work. Loeb's writing is incredible. It definitely draws from Frank Miller's Batman Year One with its sense of noir, crime drama, mystery, and the addition of light horror. But largely The Long Halloween is, as the cover blurb says, "an epic trag [...]

    6. Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder* on said:

      I’d been hearing great things about this the past few years (I’m a late comer to the game, what can I say?) The story is broken up by different holidays, some major and some I basically forget exist until they pop up during the year. All the stories connect as Batman works with Gordon and attorney Dent to try and figure out who the killer is, as he strikes during the holiday season, setting forth a solid detective battle. They investigate, contemplate, interrogate, make wrong guesses, get sh [...]

      FINAL RATING: 4.25 STARSI made a promise to my parents that I would rid the city of the evil that took their lives.I wasn't really intending to read The Long Halloween, even when it was highly recommended to me by my comic book reading friends. I'm member of a group that has Batman: Dark Victory as their next group read and I wanted to participate. However, it seems that Dark Victory is set after the events from The Long Halloween, so I was just fuck it, let's read this shit.I'm happy I did bec [...]

      I almost didn't get this digital copy when ComiXology had its graphic novel sale for the holidays. I was leaning toward Batman: Hush, also by Jeph Loeb and with art by Jim Lee, but I already have that story in singles. It was best deal though, if it's measured in pages with a 353 page count. So I pulled the trigger on the purchase. I didn't regret it.The Long Halloween is probably the best work to come out from the collaboration of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. It's set in Year One of Frank Miller, wh [...]

    9. Andy on said:

      Every comic book artist thinks their interpretation of Batman is the best, but most of them are overdrawn. Tim Sale gets it – he’s one of the best Batman artists I’ve seen. I think he captures the insanity of the Mad Hatter and the Scarecrow so well, and his rendering of Batman is one of the best. I was listening to Amon Tobin’s “Out From Out Where” while reading “The Long Halloween” and the music fit the comic perfectly (especially “The Searchers”). Try it some time: I think [...]

      So many years ago during college, a philosophy major and I used to argue with each other for kicks - I was a freshman in years (but a sophomore in class credits) and I hadn't learned yet to stay away from philosophy majors. I can be forgiven for that. The only thing we ever managed to agree on was that Jeph Loeb's and Tim Sale's Batman: The Long Halloween is the best Batman out there. Obviously, I waited until Halloween to re-read it seemed appropriate. The story follows a killer nicknamed Holi [...]

    11. Keely on said:

      I won't lie. I had high hopes for this story. After all, it has been consistently placed in the Best Batman Stories lists, either as part of the Top 10 or Top 5 graphic novels you have to read. Comprised of thirteen issues, Jeph Loeb's The Long Halloween had great promise. It had all the right ingredients. We got Bruce Wayne just starting out his early years as Batman, and his partnerships with Commissioner Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent. We got the Falcone and Maroni crime familie [...]

    12. Jesse A on said:

      It's time I admitted something, more to myself than anything. I don't like Batman as a character. Feels good to get off my chest. He just doesn't work for me as a superhero. He's a P.I. in a silly costume. And don't get me started on him in the justice League. "Hey Batman, we have a crime going on. Grab Superman's cape so you can get there too" Some of the movies work because he exists in a world without a Superman or Wonder Woman but in their world he doesn't work for me.2nd review: Ok. I'm muc [...]

    13. StoryTellerShannon on said:

      This was one of the three Batman comics which influenced the making of the movie BATMAN BEGINS. The sequel to that film THE DARK KNIGHT grabbed heavily from this particular graphic novel. It's something of an early years of Batman's time as he deals mostly with the mob and an avenger named Holiday who kills people during almost any holiday. There are some good connection setups between Batman, Gordon and Dent. Film noirish style as to the murders some would sayTWORK: B; STORY/PLOTTING; B plus to [...]

      The Origins of Harvey Dent has begun!Introduction: Now, I have been reading many Batman comics whose stories dealt with Batman defeating one of his greatest foes, the Joker. But, I had always wanted to read some “Batman” stories that dealt with another one of Batman’s greatest foes, Two-Face! I got interested in Two-Face’s story when I saw one of the episodes on “Batman: The Animated Series” that dealt with the origin tale of Two-Face and I was amazed at how well that episode portray [...]

      Phenomenal graphic novel with amazing illustrations. Batman: The Long Halloween is one of the most interesting Batman works I've ever read.

    17. Jeannette Nikolova on said:

      Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.I can't say that I had fun reading The Long Halloween. Rather, I grew tired with it by the end. It's okay, of course, because luckily authors and illustrators of comic books change all the time, but as praised as this book is by critics and fans alike, it was not for me. Both the story and the art were more old school that I was in for. On the other hand, with time and reading more Batman, I think I might revisit it and maybe even have a new appreciation [...]

    18. Sesana on said:

      The Long Halloween is a follow-up to Year One, written by Jeph Loeb because Frank Miller had no apparent interest in doing so. (After having read All-Star Batman and Robin, I think that's a good thing.) It essentially picks up right where Year One left off. Batman is still kind of new to all of this, still working out his code of ethics and how best to use the Batman persona. It's also a passing of the torch for Gotham itself, moving the city from one ruled by the mafia to one terrorized on a pr [...]

    19. Kelly on said:

      Well, it's between 3.5 and 4 to be honest. I loved the fact that EVERYONE was in it; Joker, poison ivy, catwoman, riddler etc and I found the concept really interesting, I had to see who Holiday was. However, I didn't think the artwork was as good as Year One and the Man Who Laughs, especially of my doll Ivy, and the ending was just slightly ridiculous which was a shame. The one unveiling of holiday i could get my head around but adding more threads just made it feel like the writers were trying [...]

    20. Manisha on said:

      "Solomon Grundy"If there was one word I could use to describe this comic series, it's this: Clever. "Born on a Monday"I loved the concept of each comic being centered around a holiday, with a corresponding villain to match. I loved the idea of showing the 'Holiday' murders in black and white, while Harvey Dent was hiding in the shadows half the time. "Christened on Tuesday"I loved how three dimensional all the characters were. Not only were we shown Bruce, and the unwavering loyalty of Alfred, b [...]

    21. Muhammad Shakhawat Hossain on said:

      If 'awesome' hadn't become an adjective too cliché, I would've surely used it. Batman: The Long Halloween has truly an enticing plot and the storytelling is pretty neat. The mystery that kept baffling Batman, is not revealed until almost the very end of the novel. Also, the twisting climax gives a goose bump and will leave the readers at their wit's end! The chief antagonist, Carmine Falcone is loosely based on Mario Puzo's iconic character Don Vito Corleone and the starting is pretty much simi [...]

    22. Brad on said:

      Nolan himself recognizes Loeb's influence on his Dark Knight trilogy, and it is everywhere in these pages, but Loeb's The Long Halloween is much better than what Nolan did on screen. It takes the post-Miller Dark Knight back to his kinder gentler detective past without the cheese and stupidity. Loeb's Batman is morose and grey, but he's not bitter, nasty, or "dark," which makes him much more welcoming to the reader. I think this is the ideal beginning for anyone interested in Batman. Plus, it's [...]

    23. Mizuki on said:

      Accidentally, I finished Dark Victory before I could manage to get my hands on Batman: Long Halloween, I knew how this long series is going to end before I started on Long Halloween, still I enjoy both volumes SO DAMN MUCH!(Link: nerdlush/category/events/)The strongest points of Long Halloween and its sequel are the gloomy yet flawlessly gorgeous artwork, the strong crime-noir atmosphere which is shaped into perfection, the ill-fated romance between Batman and Catwoman and the use of a colorful [...]

      Batman: The Long Halloween: A brilliant crime noir mysteryOriginally posted at Fantasy LiteratureBatman: The Long Halloween takes place soon after Frank Miller's Batman: Year One (1987) in chronology. Batman is still in his early days of crime-fighting, while Captain Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent are trying to combat corruption in the police force and courts. This book is a lengthy and gripping noir story that goes back to Batman’s roots as a detective, as he and Jim and Harvey [...]

      An utterly magnificent Batman tale. That is the best way I can describe this amazing story written by Jeph Loeb. If you love Batman or just appreciate a well crafted murder mystery then this is a book you will appreciate. The best part is the wonderful story is supplemented by Tim Sale's gorgeous art. This is a stylish volume. Beautifully illustrated with many memorable scenes.The Long Halloween is a detective story centering around three distinct protagonists and a large cast of secondary chara [...]

    26. Robert on said:

      Easily the best Batman story I've ever read, and clearly deeply inspirational for many of the better aspects of the Christopher Nolan cinematic Bat-verse.Tim Sale's art isn't to everyone's taste, I know, but having previous experience of him via Superman for All Seasons made it easier for me to just dive into the story. Also, it helps imbue the book with a timeless quality- you could pass it off as having been published in any era convincingly!Also, this gets my vote for sexiest Catwoman of all [...]

      I have one word for this book. Love. Love love love.This was my pick for Batman week with The Shallow Comics Group.

    28. Kemper on said:

      Jeph Loeb's work on Batman are some of the best stories ever done about the character, and this and Hush are proably the two best.

    29. Hayden on said:

      I put off reading this book for a long time, but with the impending release of The Dark Knight Rises this summer, I felt like it was time to pick up the last Batman classic I hadn't read.This dark, brooding story takes huge, huge influence from the 1972 film The Godfather. In fact, whole scenes are lifted from the movie, such as the opening line, the license plate copying in the beginning, and the orange grove scene. After putting it down, I was somewhat disappointed Batman didn't wake up to fin [...]
