Summer Reading 2020: ◦ Batman: The Long Halloween

Here's why Lingerr chose Batman: The Long Halloween...

Batman: The Long Halloween lets us really dig into the psyche of the Dark Knight and the a/morality of the people he surrounds himself with. We'll spend a year in his life, watching as he faces different tests to both Batman and Bruce Wayne. It's gritty, it's provocative, it's awesome. 

About the book

Batman: The Long Halloween
by Jeph Loeb, Tim Sale (Illustrator)

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. Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races against the clock as he tries to discover who Holiday is before he claims his next victim each month. 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. - DC Comics

“Loeb and Sale imaginatively update old standbys while staying true to the characters’ long-standing portrayals.” —Booklist
