Collecting BATMAN: DARK VICTORY #0-13, this epic continues the story of THE LONG HALLOWEEN. It is early in Batman's crimefighting career, 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 seeming 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?

The followup miniseries to The Long Hallowe'en, by Loeb and Sale. This was before Loeb's abilities as a writer took a steep dive off a cliff. The plotline concerns itself with another serial killer with a grudge using a hangman's motif, aimed seemingly at Two Face. It's set in the early years, featuring the arrival of Dick Grayson as Robin, and the art suits the material well. With the recent reboot of the New 52, this and its predecessor likely mean nothing anymore, as the three years of time the storyline would have taken up can't be fitted into the new continuity.

Absolutely one of the best Batman stories ever written. Remember to read the Long Halloween first and Catwoman : When in Rome afterwards. A must for any Batman fan.
