...allright, a few threads down, there's a thread in which Year One is being discussed, and a comparision with Long Halloween arised, some posters even mentioning that it was even better than Year One.
I've read Year One and enjoyed it a big deal, but I've never tried Long Halloween at all. All I know about it, it's that it was written by Jeph Loeb, a writer of whom I have only read some Superman/Batman issues, and was very disappointed by the extremely poor scripts. Because of that, I've never dared touch anything else written by Loeb.
So, my question is: is there any possibility at all, that someone who has found Loeb's Superman/Batman stories may ever enjoy The Long Halloween at all? I found his Superman/Batman stuff way too simplistic, two-dimensional and unimaginative.
Thanks in advance for your replies, and please, if there are any Jeph Loeb fans around here, don't feel offended by my comments. It's not my intention to offend.

"Alright you primitive screw-heads, listen up. See this? This is my boomstick! It's a 12-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan; retails for about one hundred nine, ninety-five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right, shop smart, shop S-Mart!"
(by Ash Williams, from Army of Darkness).

Definately would recomend The Long Halloween and Dark Victory, as both are some of the most entertaining Batman stories ever told.
