DC Comics delivers a new edition of "Batman: Dark Victory" and does what any great publisher would do to pull in more sales. They add new content to give readers who already have it another reason to grab an updated copy. It also gives folks who haven't picked it up or read it a chance to dive into what entertainment website IGN calls the 10th greatest Batman graphic novel ever released. The title is justifiable as made visible by a wonderfully complex crime tale and top-notch artwork.

Gotham City is once again gripped by fear as a serial murderer copying the "Holiday Killer" is taking out police officers once a month. Is Alberto Falcone finding a way to commit the crimes even though he's on house arrest? Could it be Commissioner James Gordon and Bruce Wayne's good-guy-gone-bad friend, Harvey Dent/Two-Face? Only the Dark Knight can uncover the clues to these sinister crimes.

At the same time, Batman finds himself taking in a kindred spirit. A young trapeze artist whose parents tragically fell to their deaths suspects that it wasn't an accident. He will go to any extremes to uncover the mystery of who might be behind their untimely demise.

Writer Jeph Loeb certainly knows how to keep readers on their toes. "Batman: Dark Victory" keeps you guessing until the bitter end by steering you in one direction and then yanking you in another. This is the shadowy Detective the way Bob Kane originally designed him to be.

Tim Sale's art is one of a kind. He's the type of illustrator where you know his work as soon as you see it. It has a classic golden age style to it, but uniquely blends it with a pop art flavor.

Just as the great hard-boiled writers Raymond Chandler and Ross Macdonald have been said to write the same story over and again, Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, their descendants, recreated their first and highly successful Batman tale THE LONG HALLOWEEN, but made it even better, and found more of a voice for themselves. Again the story involves the early years of Batman and Commissioner Gordon in Gotham City (this story brings us up to the creation of Robin through the murder of Dick Grayson's parents by members of the mob), and again a serial killer strikes on holidays and is heavily involved with the Falcone crime family; but the mystery is more tightly plotted this time, and much more plausible. Tim Sale's artwork is also much stronger here; whereas in THE LONG HALLOWEEN the world of Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon and organized crime was rendered more realistically, with the world of the encroaching "masks" (the classic Batman rogues gallery) was heavily stylized, here the two seem more blended together, with a stronger sense of expressionism dominating the renditions. The layouts are truly spectacular--this is some of the best Batman art I've ever seen.

Well this is absolutely brilliant! Loeb, and sale did great work on Long Halloween, they learned a few things from that story that helped them with this one. I find the art in particular to be better. Specifically Selina Kyle, in LH I thought she looked off but she looks great in this. It's an exciting story of the Dark Knight hunting down the Hangman killer. It is full of fun appearances of your favorite rouges, plot twists and turns, beautiful/unique art, amazing dialogue, and the first appearance of the dynamic duo! This book is incredible... Buy it! Just look at the cover the colors are bursting and it just gets better when you open it! This dark, entertaining story will keep you guessing until the end! GO BUY IT!!!!!!

Coming off from The Long Halloween, Jeff Loeb and Tim Sale give us the sequel to their popular story tale in which we see Batman go at it with another year long mystery, while also giving us an origin story for the first Robin, Dick Grayson. After reading this book, I have come away having with even more love of the Dark Knight's mythology, while coming to see this as my favorite Batman story that I have read, even if it doesn't stand as well on its own.

ON the narrative side of things, Loeb delivers a story fairly similar to the one he gave in The Long Halloween, though I feel this one is a bit more polished than Halloween was. Some have said that the retreading of plot structure have limited the way Loeb's later works are read, but I myself have no problem with it (for the most part), Loeb manages to do enough differently that you don't feel like you're reading the exact same story. The real big negative I'd have to give this graphic novel is that it really doesn't stand as well by itself than if you had read The Long Halloween. While I myself read that story before coming in to this one, I did see many connections that I would assume would through off any newcomers who hadn't read the prior story. But I will say that this is the story that had me invested the most emotionally. Without giving away any spoilers, that last page in the novel gave me such a cathartic experience that I really came to appreciate certain aspects of the Dark Knight's mythology, and how themes of loneliness were touched upon in a very genuine way.

Looking at the art for the novel, Sale's work has improved much from The Long Halloween.
