And my pick of the week is… BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN SPECIAL!!!
So there you have it, folks. Tons of great releases, but the Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale Long Halloween special is a true masterpiece in every way imaginable. I for one wouldn’t be upset if they did one of these every year for the rest of time. Some other great reads are DC vs Vampires, Robin, Checkmate, Task Force Z, and Deathstroke Inc.
