Batman: The Long Halloween


"THE LONG HALLOWEEN is more than a comic book. It's an epic tragedy."
—Christopher Nolan (director THE DARK KNIGHT RISES)

Taking place during Batman's early days of crime fighting, this new edition of the classic mystery tells the story of a mysterious killer who murders his prey only on holidays.

A mystery that has the reader continually guessing the identity of the killer, this story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman's deadly enemy, Two-Face.
