    So, okay then This is the sequel to The Long Halloween which I was not the biggest fan of to begin with Still, on the enjoyment scale, this one was better That was until I got to the last two issues Ironically enough, whileThe Long Halloween had a rough start but a nonetheless merciful albeit incomplete resolution,Dark Victory managed to get a stronger andconcise beginning but afrustrating and pointless ending I don t understand this travesty The Knightfall series is honestly So, okay then This is the sequel to The Long Halloween which I was not the biggest fan of to begin with Still, on the enjoyment scale, this one was better That was until I got to the last two issues Ironically enough, whileThe Long Halloween had a rough start but a nonetheless merciful albeit incomplete resolution,Dark Victory managed to get a stronger andconcise beginning but afrustrating and pointless ending I don t understand this travesty The Knightfall series is honestlybetter written Well, Loeb s stories should be fundamentally incomparable to Knightfall since the latter after all was written by multiple writers across different Bat titles The sole reason I compare them is becauase I was also quite lukewarm towards Knightfall but I would pick the omnibus series over either of Loeb s work any day.I don t want to get into details about Dark Victory Ultimately it s a Batman story that brought no joy or appreciation for me I thought I could like any kind of Bat story out there I eventually did warm up to Greg Hurwitz in his writing for New 52 The Dark Knight run but Jeph Loeb had officially made me question that reality I can state from here on out that I don t enjoy the way he writes Batman There were a few areas that have potentials, most notably for Dark Victory The central murder mystery story had a better foundation a series of cop kilings with the murderer pinning notes on the corpses depicting the child s game Hangman as secret messages At least the victims were sympathetic people and not criminals who are a tadirredeemable But the holiday themed murders were needlessly overplayed like the torture horror of the SAW franchise.Next, both Batman and Commissioner Gordon show remorse and guilt over the loss of Harvey Dent Batman spent most of the time blaming himself in his inner monologues about Dent s transformation to Two Face This would have been acceptable except that I never really saw a friendship developed in the prequel among these three to make the drama and internal conflict believable enough for me to care about And then there s the women The female characterizations were easily appalling and cheap as far as stereotypes and pigeonholing goes Every woman is given the roles among grieving spouses, easily manipulated girlfriends and whimsical seductresses and with little to no clarification for motivation or pay off to their arcs whatsoever.I love Bruce and Selina s relationship in general but Loeb had accomplished the impossible feat he made me hate them together I couldn t stand their stupid dance of coquettish nonsense, especially so in Dark Victory Aside from the badly drawn costume, Catwoman had a weak arc for both Loeb stories and therefore her usual morally ambiguous actions were not as promising or as riveting to see unfold The only two women who are at least trying to break the mold were gangster Sofia Falcone and possible sociopath Gilda Dent who have interesting characterizations from the start but were sadly overlooked and underdeveloped midway through both stories.I don t even want to acknowledge the wasteful space female District Attorney Porter took up for Dark Victory What a pathetic and unbelievable character And goddamn Dick Grayson who is featured in the Absolute Dark Victory cover prominently doesn t even have a major contribution to the storyline All he did here was sulk and look morose He isn t Jason Todd or Damian Wayne, dammit Where s the sparkling personality I ve always loved about the first Boy Wonder Overall yeah, fuck it I don t have any parting words But I will rate this one star higher than fucking Long Halloween just because.RECOMMENDED 7 10DO READ MY BATMAN COMICS REVIEWS AT

    New 52 Batman and Re birth batman fans take note HERE IS HOW BATMAN SHOULD BE DONE All Clear Good.Dark Victory is the superb sequel to the excellent The Long Halloween Brilliantly written by Jeph Loeb and artfully drawn by Tim Sale these two books were used, along with Frank Miller s DKR, to set the tone for Christopher Nolan s movies.Dark Victory takes up with Harvey Dent becoming Two Face There is a gang war going on in Gotham This is during Batman s earlier years You can see, as the st New 52 Batman and Re birth batman fans take note HERE IS HOW BATMAN SHOULD BE DONE All Clear Good.Dark Victory is the superb sequel to the excellent The Long Halloween Brilliantly written by Jeph Loeb and artfully drawn by Tim Sale these two books were used, along with Frank Miller s DKR, to set the tone for Christopher Nolan s movies.Dark Victory takes up with Harvey Dent becoming Two Face There is a gang war going on in Gotham This is during Batman s earlier years You can see, as the story progresses, the normal criminal element of Gotham being phased out by the freaks There is so much to love here for any Batman fan The best part is we see Batman as the Detective he is something that sometimes gets left behind in recent tellings.This is a murder mystery The cast of villains is large and, I have to admit, didn t realize who the true killer was until the big reveal Impressive This Batman is brooding and dark We rarely see Bruce Wayne, and then only for his interactions with Selina Kyle, because this is a Batman story It is also a story of how Dick Grayson became Robin I won t spoil any of the excellent plot so all I can say is IMHO this, along with Long Halloween, is one of the finest Batman stories around Period Read it Enjoy it It is a true work of comic book art

    I ve read Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale s Batman books in the order they ve written them with Haunted Knight coming first followed by The Long Hallowe en and finally coming to Dark Victory I suppose Loeb ought to be congratulated for bringing the Batman stories back to their original format, that is detective crime stories, where he brings the mob and Batman side by side as natural enemies Here s the story a killer is killing people by hanging them on holidays Hallowe en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, e I ve read Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale s Batman books in the order they ve written them with Haunted Knight coming first followed by The Long Hallowe en and finally coming to Dark Victory I suppose Loeb ought to be congratulated for bringing the Batman stories back to their original format, that is detective crime stories, where he brings the mob and Batman side by side as natural enemies Here s the story a killer is killing people by hanging them on holidays Hallowe en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc and leaving notes on their bodies with the hangman game on Early on Arkham is attacked and the Batman s best loved villains escape Joker, Two Face, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Riddler and as the bodies pile up the pressure is on for Batman to stop this killer but he ll need help Enter Robin This ain t exactly gripping stuff If you re like me and have read a fair number of Batman you ll already know this storyline reeks of The Long Hallowe en The storyline is practically identical with the holiday killer this time not the weird Falcone guy but he s in this story too being renamed the hangman killer and the villains all escaping and Batman encountering them laboriously one by one Also do we need to hear the same old Robin origin story This book is nearly 400 pages 400 pages of rehashed material with nothing new at all It s a chore to slog through even if you re new to Batman Loeb can t seem to get out of 2nd gear while I m beginning to see Sale as one of the worst Batman artists out there Joker looks ridiculous, his smile isn t disturbing or grotesque it s stupid It covers his entire face so that it s just a giant toothy smile with a tiny face above it Bruce Wayne appears to be 7 feet tall And what s with the tedious mafia characters They re all boring stereotypes, eating spaghetti in restaurants thats a cover for smuggling operations Come on The press all have pieces of card with PRESS written on them and slotted into their hats This is really a miss If you ve read The Long Hallowe en then you can count reading this too as it s completely the same Only difference is Robin and if you know anything about Batman you ll know what happens there Give this a miss, it s a dull, dull story and for a character as interesting as Batman that s criminal

    This one was good but it wasn t great I tend to not like a lot of Batman comics with Robin included That s just my personal preference This comic series does however have an all star cast including Catwoman, Two Face and the infamous Joker All around it was okay and I would still recommend it The artwork is great
