Batman: The Long Halloween was printed in a maxiseries format with thirteen issues, written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Tim Sale.

There is a killer slaying members of the Falcone family (a gang that is taking over Gotham City) and marking his killings with holidays, starting on Halloween, and ending the following year also on Halloween. Of course Batman is trying to stop him as all of the super villains in Gotham seem to amassing for an attack. This story also doubles as an origin story for Two-Face.

What really made this book great for me was that usually in Batman books there are either just gangsters, or just super villains, however, The Long Halloween uses both and does it well, no other Batman book that I’ve read besides The Dark Knight Returns. But sadly besides this and Hush Jeph Loeb hasn’t really made anything good, mostly he sucks, besides the two books aforementioned. Very upsetting. However, Tim Sale’s art is very good, it has this sort of Saturday morning cartoon feel, and it is very good. But I will say that Jeph Loeb does not know how to write the Scarecrow, apparently he thinks that all the Scarecrow does is recite nursery rhymes, and although at some times it works, but it is just not needed at some points, and is kind of stupid.

This aside, I do very much recommend this book, one of the best Batman books ever published.
