Batman: The Long Halloween

Batman: The Long Halloween - Gregory Wright, Jeph Loeb, Tim Sale, Richard Starkings A really interesting crime-noir approach to my favourite superhero (he's so much cooler than Superman, don't deny it), one that's much more effective than anything Frank Miller's done in the last 10 years. Harvey's mental descent and eventual transformation into Two-Face is particularly fascinating. I would have liked to have seen some more dimensions with the many other iconic Batman villains introduced in this edition though, and the ending's a bit too twisty-turny to be truly believable (but I bet you'll never see it coming!) Overall, it's a great piece of work and a must read for any Batman fan, especially if you want to spot all of Christopher Nolan's influences.
