What the community says about Batman: The Long Halloween
- "This is the greatest Batman story ever told. ... Having just discovered many of these popular Batman stories but never heard of this one. ... Written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale. It opens with an homage to the Godfather, but this mobster saga is much more about the Batman than the mobsters dying violently every few pages."
- "As far as Comic Novels go, this is average at best, but it is among the better Batman graphic novels. Still waiting for an outstanding Batman novel, but this one is pretty solid. If only the novels were as good as the books, but they seemingly are just average at best. "
- "Poison Ivy is in this comic, but I would not exactly say she is "featured" - there are comics where this is clearly and obviously the case, but this is hardly one of them. The art style is also kind of odd - I would not say it is objectively bad or anything, it just takes getting a little used to. Overall, this is sort of a relatively ambitious Batman story that takes some of the themes and characters in kind of new directions, so I cannot be too critical by saying that it does not exactly match up with what I expected. Not sure if I would recommend it if you really want something revolving around the Poison Ivy character though.""This comic takes us back to Bruce Wayne's early years as Batman and features a cast of familiar characters from Harvey Dent to the Falcones to yes, Poison Ivy. Learning more about the familiar cast of character is a treat and the edition is beautiful.""Tim Sale's art brings a new dimension to the Batman universe. This is mainly an expositional story for the villains, but it does them the justice (ha) that they deserve. This continues the Falcone story picking up from Miller's work fairly seamlessly."
- "Yes, I'm a comic nerd. I have a monthly comic book meeting with my friends. We discuss current comics as well as have a monthly topic to discuss. The last month was "what is the best comic book of all time?" There was a lot of discussion. After thinking a lot I thought I would see what people on Amazon think. Batman: The Long Halloween was one of the top rated comics on Amazon. It might not be the best of all time but it's right up there in the top."
