one was better That was until I got to the two was better That was until I got to the last two Ironically Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, enough while The Long Halloween had a rough start but a nonetheless merciful albeit incomplete resolution Dark Victory managed to get a stronger and concise beginning but a frustrating and pointlessnding I don t understand this travesty The Knightfall series is honestly better written Well Loeb s stories should be fundamentally incomparable to Knightfall since the latter after all was written by multiple writers across different Bat titles The sole reason I compare them is becauase I was also uite lukewarm towards Knightfall but I would pick the omnibus series over ither of Loeb s work any dayI don t want to get into details about Dark Victory Ultimately it s a Batman story that brought no joy or appreciation for me I thought I could like Any Kind Of Bat Story Out There I Eventually Did kind of Bat story out there I ventually did up to Greg Hurwitz in his writing for New 52 The Dark Knight run but Jeph Loeb had officially made me uestion that reality I can state from here on out that I don t Garden Bouquets and Beyond enjoy the way he writes Batman There were a few areas that have potentials most notably for Dark Victory The central murder mystery story had a better foundation a series of cop kilings with the murderer pinning notes on the corpses depicting the child s game Hangman as secret messages At least the victims were sympathetic people and not criminals who are a tad irredeemable But the holiday themed murders were needlessly overplayed like the torture horror of the SAW franchiseNext both Batman and Commissioner Gordon show remorse and guilt over the loss of Harvey Dent Batman spent most of the time blaming himself in his inner monologues about Dent s transformation to Two Face This would have been acceptablexcept that I never really saw a friendship developed in the preuel among these three to make the drama and internal conflict believable The Unseen Wonder enough for me to care about And then there s the women The female characterizations wereasily appalling and cheap as far as stereotypes and pigeonholing goes Every woman is given the roles among grieving spouses The Management Bible easily manipulated girlfriends and whimsical seductresses and with little to no clarification for motivation or pay off to their arcs whatsoeverI love Bruce and Selina s relationship in general but Loeb had accomplished the impossible feat he made me hate them together I couldn t stand their stupid dance of couettish nonsensespecially so in Dark Victory Aside from the badly drawn costume Catwoman had a weak arc for both Loeb stories and therefore her usual morally ambiguous actions were not as promising or as riveting to see unfold The only two women who are at least trying to break the mold were gangster Sofia Falcone and possible sociopath Gilda Dent who have interesting characterizations from the start but were sadly overlooked and underdeveloped midway through both storiesI don t Zu schnell even want to acknowledge the wasteful space female District Attorney Porter took up for Dark Victory What a pathetic and unbelievable character And goddamn Di.

Wasn T Great I Tend To Not t great I tend to not a lot of Batman comics with Robin included That s just my personal preference This comic series does however have an all star cast including Catwoman Two Face and the infamous Joker All around it was okay and I would still recommend it The artwork is great I ve read Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale s Batman books in the order they ve written them with Haunted Knight coming first followed by The Long Hallowe n and finally coming to Dark Victory #I Suppose Loeb Ought To Be Congratulated # suppose Loeb ought to be congratulated bringing the Batman stories back to their original format that is detectivecrime stories where he brings the mob and Batman side by side as natural nemies Here s the story a killer is killing people by hanging them on holidays Hallowe n Thanksgiving Christmas tc and leaving notes on their bodies with the hangman game on Early on Arkham is attacked and the Batman s best loved villains scape Joker Two Face Penguin Poison Ivy Riddler and as the bodies pile up the pressure is on for Batman to stop this killer but he ll need help Enter Robin This ain t xactly gripping stuff If you re like me and have read a fair number of Batman you ll already know this FINAL RATING 45 STARS Dark Victory lived up to my Invisible (The Curse of Avalon expectations I loved The Long Halloween but I actually liked this a bit While I think this is an amazing follow up from The Long Halloween some of my uestions from the first one still remained unanswered while some were finally put to a close The conflict The deceit The twists The turns The action I loved all of themFull review to follow New 52 Batman and Re birth batman fans take note HERE IS HOW BATMAN SHOULD BE DONE All Clear GoodDark Victory is the superb seuel to thexcellent The Long Halloween Brilliantly written by Jeph Loeb and artfully drawn by Tim Sale these two books were used along with Frank Miller s DKR to set the tone for Christopher Nolan s moviesDark Victory takes up with Harvey Dent becoming Two Face There is a gang war going on in Gotham This is during Batman s Yummy Supper earlier years You can see as the story progresses the normal criminallement of Gotham being phased out by the freaks There is so much to love here for any Batman fan The best part is we see Batman as the Detective he is something that sometimes gets left behind in recent tellingsThis is a murder mystery The cast of villains is large and I have to admit didn t realize who the true killer was until the big reveal Impressive This Batman is brooding and dark We rarely see Bruce Wayne and then only for his interactions with Selina Kyle because this is a Batman story It is also a story of how Dick Grayson became Robin I won t spoil any of the xcellent plot so all I can say is IMHO this along with Long Halloween is one of the finest Batman stories around Period Read it Enjoy it It is a true work of comic book art So okay then This is the seuel to The Long Halloween which I was not the bi.
