The sequel to the critically acclaimed BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, DARK VICTORY continues the story of an early time in Batman's life when James Gordon, Harvey Dent, and the vigilante himself were all just beginning their roles as Gotham's protectors.
Once a town controlled by organized crime, Gotham City suddenly finds itself being run by lawless freaks, such as Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker. Witnessing his city's dark evolution, the Dark Knight completes his transformation into the city's greatest defender. He faces multiple threats, including the apparent return of a serial killer called Holiday. Batman's previous investigation of Holiday's killings revealed that more than one person was responsible for the murders. So the question remains: who is committing Holiday's crimes this time? And how many will die before Batman learns the truth?
And what a victory, at that.
"Batman: Dark Victory" is an fantastic sequel to "Batman: The Long Halloween" and a masterpiece on its own. Both this and previously mentioned work are essentials to any graphic novel library, let alone any fan of Batman. I'm quite happy to see these finally on here.
A fitting conclusion to "The long Halloween". I'm happy with the story telling and the over all "Dark Victory" Batman gets to experience. As a fan it had all the twist and turns until the final chapter that I experienced and enjoyed from the "The long Halloween". So if you read that than its time to read this continuation!!
A masterful sequel!
Sometimes lightning truly does strike twice! For my money one of the ten best Batman stories ever written. Grade: A+
