Overview

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?

This volume collects Batman: Dark Victory #0-13.

Its funny how things happen. I was used to walking into a book store and see the same old books everyday. I was always looking for a way to feel like I was a hero. I then looked over by the Grahpic novel section and I saw this book. I read the back and I became interested. The book was not very presentable in the store so I bought it online. I stayed up until 12:30 at night trying to finish the day I got it. Ever since then I became a Batman junkie. I wood heavily recommend this book to whoever wants to escape and use their imagination as they read this book as I did.

I am usually not the one for graphic novels but this was really great. Both the illustrations and the writing were really awesome. The Dark Victory was action packed and it also had a really good plot. Through out the story there is a villain who is hanging police officers. So Batman's main role is to find out who the person really is. But something else interesting happens in this book, Batman meets his new companion, Robin. Robin has lost his parents just like Batman. Batman decides to take up Robin as his own. Robin can not stand to stay home why Batman is out doing what he does. So Robin begins to work out and train at the house under the supervision of Alfred. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an interesting story full of action. Even if you are not someone who likes graphic novels, believe me this book will change your mind.

The Long Halloween was truly a great book, but left some ends untied. Dark Victory, the sequal ties all those loose ends and more! It explains what happened to the Falcone family, why catwoman is always hanging around, and it even shows the origin of robin! No Batman fan should be without this story!

Although not as intriguing as Batman: The Long Halloween, Dark Victory is still a graphic novel worth reading and is certainly one to be remembered.

Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have returned to Gotham City and accomplished yet again what they did during their first visit in The Long Halloween. They have produced a fantastic Batman story!

While most sequels lack in quality, this sequel to The Long Halloween somehow seemed more like an extention of the first series. The addition of Robin was made and actually made sense. The mystery is easier to solve this go around and Tim Sale's art isn't as good but overall the series rocks. I love the failed relationship between Bats, Gordon, and Dent. Really good read!

This book has much the same storyline as 'The Long Halloween' in that a serial killer is terrorizing Gotham City killing people on major holidays but don't let that put you off. This book is different in the fact that it uses the supporting cast of mobsters and supervillains better. They have a more important part to play in this story and it pays off. Batman is still the main player but Bruce Wayne also plays a major part and the Catwoman really shines is a vampy, sexy way. This book has good characterizations of all involved and though the artwork didn't win me over the use of panels and shadow are stunning not to mention the coloring. This is movie caliber stuff. In truth you should probably read all the Batman books Loeb and Sale created but I think this one will be high on most peoples list.

Jeph Loeb delivers another mysterious tale in the Batman mythos with the sequel to The Long Halloween, Dark Victory! The origin of Dick Grayson as the first Robin adds to the classic scenes of the comics! This must be in your Batman collection! My one con of the book is not enough Robin.
