Opinions are always respected. I myself started finding Loebs work on Superman/Batman a little odd if not down right confusing. But I find it kind of hard to compare the Year One title and The Long Halloween at all. As far as I know; and if I'm wrong someone please correct me, The Long Halloween was kind of like a re-telling of Batman's first encounters with Harvey Dent/Two-Face. I'm not even sure that the story is actually credible to the Batman mythos. Year One is held as one of the most important storylines in Batman's history and I understand that many people will defend it if it ever falls under attack, but you may just be cheating yourself out of a damn fine Batman mystery tale by not reading Halloween. It is fast paced and leaves you guessing through the whole length of the tale.

THAT sounds interesting. And it actually would've been a much better idea for Year Two than what we actually got.

This is not the case, don't worry. I'm not all that of a fanboy, really. I liked Year One a big deal, but my questions about Long Halloween come from have never even glanced through a single page of it.

Hmm... sounds interesting, but it's the resolution I'm always worried about whenever there is a mystery. I already had a massive disappointment with Identity Crisis, and I don't want to have to go through that again.





"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!"
