Unless Loeb and Sale are doing another Batman maxi-series, there’s really no reason for this book to exist other than to cash in on The Long Halloween. So it’s frivolous, and a little silly at times…

But I love Loeb and Sale’s work on Batman so much, it doesn’t even matter. I’m just happy to see them working on the character again after all these years. Sale’s art strikes the perfect tone for Batman’s world, and nobody nails the character’s voice quite like Loeb.

I can only hope this is, in fact, the start of something bigger.
