      So, okay then. This is the sequel to The Long Halloween which I was not the biggest fan of to begin with. Still, on the enjoyment scale, this one was better. That was until I got to the last two issues. Ironically enough, while The Long Halloween had a rough start but a nonetheless merciful albeit incomplete resolution, Dark Victory managed to get a stronger and more concise beginning but a more frustrating and pointless ending. I don't understand this travesty. The Knightfall series is honestly [...]

      FINAL RATING: 4.5 STARS Dark Victory lived up to my expectations. I loved The Long Halloween, but I actually liked this a bit more. While I think this is an amazing follow up from The Long Halloween, some of my questions 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 them.Full review to follow.

      New 52 Batman and Re-birth batman fans take note: HERE IS HOW BATMAN SHOULD BE DONE! All Clear? Good.Dark Victory is the superb sequel to the excellent 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 movies.Dark Victory takes up with Harvey Dent becoming Two-Face. There is a gang war going on in Gotham. This is during Batman's earlier years. You can see, as the st [...]

      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'en and finally coming to Dark Victory. I suppose Loeb ought to be congratulated for bringing the Batman stories back to their original format, that is detective/crime stories, where he brings the mob and Batman side by side as natural enemies. Here's the story: a killer is killing people by hanging them on holidays (Hallowe'en, Thanksgiving, Christmas, e [...]

      What a Batman book!!! Maybe its the mood I'm in today but I loved it all! The story was outstanding. The art I, surprisingly, loved. Just great!

    6. Evan Leach on said:

      Dark Victory is the sequel to Batman: The Long Halloween. The Long Halloween tells the tragic story of Harvey Dent (aka “Two Face”) and his fall from grace. Dark Victory follows this up by continuing the stories of Harvey, the Falcone crime family, and the Bat himself in the aftermath of Harvey’s imprisonment.The book follows the exact same format as its predecessor, and somewhat surprisingly uses the exact same theme to tie the episodes together. Each issue takes place on a different holi [...]

      Let's face it, a majority of Batman readers hate Robin. Why? No clue. I always thought he was a nice contrast to Batman's loner characteristics. A lot of people mention that Robin doesn't fit a Batman story, and that's because Robin "is nothing like Batman because Batman has always fought alone". Well, I would love to agree with those people, but I would be a liar if I did.First of all, about Robin, this graphic novel does explain Robin's origin. Dick Grayson (the first Robin) loses his parents [...]

    8. Jace on said:

      I don't have a lot to say about this book. It's a sequel to The Long Halloween, and the connection shows. Ultimately, DARK VICTORY suffers from its similarity to its predecessor. Aside from the details of who gets murdered, the stories are nearly identical: An unknown villain kills his victims on holidays. Harvey Dent/Two-Face is suspected in the crimes.Batman tumbles with all of his rogues gallery while investigating the murders.The killer is (disappointingly) revealed to be a character you nev [...]

      You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.Another big piece of Batman history by writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale. But this time, we get to welcome with big open arms to the best – this might be debatable, but not with me – Boy Wonder. As if the cover art doesn’t already show you who we’re talking about here, Dark Victory introduces Mr. Dick Grayson into the Batman universe. This trade paperback collects all 14 issues published back in 1999 and 2000 and follows the events of [...]

      Batman: Dark Victory: An excellent follow-up to Long HalloweenOriginally posted at Fantasy Literature Batman: Dark Victory (2000) takes place immediately after Batman: The Long Halloween (1997). In the aftermath of the Holiday Killer, Gotham’s Falcone and Maroni crime families are in chaos. Dark Victory is steeped in the same dark crime noir atmosphere as Long Halloween, so if you liked the first title you will like this one too. It’s all about mysterious killings, Mafia wars, the rise of th [...]

    11. Cacallahan on said:

      Definitely one of my favorite graphic novels. It's a combination of The Godfather (crime family drama) with Batman, all the classic villains, detective work and the introduction of Robin. This is the sequel to Long Halloween and a major contributor to the recent Batman movies by Nolan. Batman is his classic self with awesome detective skills, a larger than life presence, shadow and stealth, and a certain broken humanity. Yet for all his demands of justice and beat downs and no nonsense there is [...]

    12. Sesana on said:

      The Long Halloween is a great book, but it did leave some loose threads hanging. It was probably inevitable that a sequel could come along, so here we have Dark Victory. The writing is pretty solid, but it's a little derivative of Long Halloween at times. The stories mirror each other too much for me. The best part is the introduction of Robin, done so many times over, but handled really well here. It is a good read, but it could have been better.

    14. Andy 117 on said:

      The Long Halloween was, despite its villain-a-month hook, a tight, compact murder mystery at its core. With mob drama and crime procedural being flanked by Batman fighting the more recognizable of his (and Green Lantern's, I guess) rogues gallery, the result was a well-written, tightly-wound whodunnit with just enough Batman flavour to justify being a Batman book. As a sort of sequel to Year One, it works perfectly as far as the tone goes. But the scope, as with Year One, was decidedly limited.L [...]

      Victoria oscura es la inmediata continuación del tomo "El largo Halloween" en éste, Batman y el detective Gordon intentan dar caza al asesino en serie "Festivo", que al igual que Calendarman, aprovecha para matar en fechas señaladas. Después de una larga investigación y un gran plot-twist, consiguen atrapar al asesino. En "Victoria Oscura" ya se sabe quien es festivo, pero un nuevo asesino en serie aparece en Gothan. Coincidiendo también con festividades, asesina a policias corruptos y mie [...]

      Dark Victory is a satisfying follow-up to The Long Halloween, both in terms of plot and art style. Even if it were a crime novel featuring a wealthy detective and his interaction with criminals, mobsters, and the local police force, it would still be thoroughly enjoyable to read. (The fact that said detective is Batman is just icing on the cake.) As in Long Halloween, there is a string of murders taking place on significant days during one year. The difference is that the victims are members of [...]

      Batman: Dark Victory continues the story of The Long Halloween, it concludes (view spoiler)[Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face, it also concludes Bruce Wayne's ill-fated relationship with Selina Kyle, then it introduces Dick Grayson as the first Robin (hide spoiler)]. The plot and the murder mystery is more neatly and more skillfully written than The Long Halloween ((view spoiler)[ too many Holiday Killers in one book!

      The follow up to Loeb and Sale's previous hit story, The Long Halloween, Dark Victory picks up one year after the events of the earlier story. If you liked The Long Halloween's focus on a variety of characters and Gotham itself, this is a perfect follow up for you. Let's be honest, Jeph Loeb is not writing Shakespeare. That said, Dark Victory is pretty frickin' Shakespearean. The same emphasis on a variety of characters struggling against fate, destiny, responsibility and all the rest elevate th [...]

    19. David Schaafsma on said:

      This is a sequel to Loeb and Sale's classic The Long Halloween, and I had never read this one. I think it is beautiful artwork by Sale, and the story is lonnnnng and mostly compelling, though there are no real surprises along the way. It is curious why it garnered such high ratings, but maybe it has something to do with the initial expectations of the book when it came out, to such fanfare… I liked it, it's kinda classic Gotham mob Gordon Batman Two Face stuff, far better than the average fare [...]

    20. Eric on said:

      Batman: Dark Victory, the direct sequel to Batman: The Long Halloween, is not nearly as good as its predecessor.The problem is that it tries to do too much. The second similar serial killer story, the Dick Grayson/Robin story, the Batman/Catwoman story, and the freak villains finally uniting all could have worked, separately. Most of them probably could have been fit into Dark Victory successfully. But not all of them, all at once, and certainly not in a shorter space than The Long Halloween was [...]

      Two-face is back, holding court in the sewers because where else is better, all your fave villains are in this, although could have done with a bit more freeze he's awesome. Really liked this one, alfred knows what up he's on point as ever. We get to see lil grayson who is my fave robin although we could have done with a bit more of his story. The artwork has really grown on me i love how they draw joker's huge ass grin, takes up like most of the page, and also how flippin cute is penguin, he's [...]

    22. Jedi JC Daquis on said:

      Batman Dark Victory has way so many things going on that Batman has to become an overly talkative narrator. It revolves around a convoluted story of police murders. These serial killings are uninspired with murder clues I didn't even bother to look at again (and I'm not even comparing this to The Long Halloween). The Robin origin story is forced and Dick is a bit of a deus ex machina simply because the story is nearing its conclusion.I'm okay with Dark Victory having a similar story with The Lon [...]

    23. Gavin on said:

      This was my 2nd reading of 'Dark Victory'. An early story in the Batman world, and a very good one. Follows the 'Long Halloween' storyline. Someone is targeting cops/gangsters and killing them. Batman has to work hard to figure out who, all while the whole villains gallery has been broken out of Arkham. Great stuff, also the first appearance of Dick Grayson.

    24. Alayne on said:

      Estuvo muy bueno, aunque se me hizo bastante largo en un principio. Después engancha y me gustó el final y al resolución. Además, aparece Dick Grayson, y no había leído hasta ahora ningún cómic de Batman con él. Bastante recomendable si te gusta el super héroe y los policiales (y si te gustó El Largo Halloween).

    25. Pablo Fern�ndez on said:

      Grandísimo cómic. Batman nos recuerda su verdadero yo y nos sumerge en una historia profunda y oscura en las entrañas de una lucha por la amistad, y la justicia.

    26. Scott on said:

      The follow-up to Batman: The Long Halloween pales in comparison to its forerunner. It started to feel rushed and then muddled towards the finale. Also, the nods towards Puzo's / Coppola's The Godfather are at times laid on a little thick. However, despite that criticism it was still a reasonably good Batman book. The scenes with Commissioner Gordon (who has the largest supporting role), the introduction Dick Grayson / 'Robin,' and the wisdom of Alfred were definite assets to this collection.

    27. MC on said:

      One of the most unique teams in comics is that of Batman and Robin. Batman, the ultimate loner, takes on a young sidekick (the first of many that form the “Bat-family”, and fights crime with him. Batman is all dark blues and grays designed to blend into the background, while Robin is bright (depending on how he's written, almost gaudily bright) colors, that are impossible to blend into any nighttime background. Batman is a perpetually grim guy who has to fight hard to keep from becoming as e [...]

    28. Donovan on said:

      This is a good continuation (maybe not great) of "The Long Halloween." I am so impressed with Tim Sale's artwork, which pleasantly reminds me of the Animated Series mixed with Christopher Nolan intensity, leaning toward a mostly realistic stylization (Joker aside, not in love with that depiction), although occasionally Batman was as large as Solomon Grundy who is like ten feet tall. I like the dialog overall, although as some reviewers have pointed out it does seem to borrow heavily from mafia f [...]

    29. Michael Benavidez on said:

      This is a direct sequel to (well not direct, but relies heavily on the events that happened in) The Long Halloween. It's practically mandatory to read to that before this one.Unlike the Long Halloween though, this story exceeds it. The mystery is better crafted, the solving of it is a bit better but not by much, and pacing is far FAR better. other than the character designs are the same, but don't bug me as much as they did the first time around. It takes a darker approach, well not really, but [...]

    30. Snehith Devalapalli on said:

      The story is set right after the events of The Long Halloween. Which I loved. Robin is introduced here and was smoothly done. Two-face is a perfect antagonist as always.As usual the suspense was well maintained till the end. The twist was worth the wait. The relationship between Bruce and Alfred is beyond mothership.
