BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN (1996—97), by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale A complex, stylish mystery that showcases the hero's world and detective persona. A touchstone for Nolan's Batman films. BEST COSTUME BATMAN: YEAR ONE (1986—87), drawn by David Mazzucchelli An elegant throwback to the original wrestling tights. Perfect horns, cape, and belt, and no armor or yellow spotlight on the bat. BEST BATMAN ARTIST NEAL ADAMS The modern master rehabbed the campy image of the character (above) with a visceral, realistic makeover. BEST BATMOBILE BATMAN #5 Batman's 1941 comic-book ride—drawn by Bob Kane and Jerry Robinson—is a stylish roadster. Looks like a bat out of hell. Drives like one, too. SOURCE 4 Two Face. (n.d.). Retrieved from Cities can be hard, crowded places full of people with different interests, backgrounds and points of view. Voices go unheard and attempts to make a difference often feel pointless. Unless we’re talking about Gotham, in which trying to do good isn’t just fruitless—it’s dangerous. A prominent and well-educated District Attorney, Harvey Dent fought valiantly to uphold the law and make the city a better place. In any other city, it would have worked. Not in Gotham—a place where greed and corruption stretches from the depths of Crime Alley to the shimmering heights of the mayor’s office. Dent’s spiral into Gotham’s madness came swiftly after a criminal threw acid into his face, leaving half of it horribly scarred. Seeking refuge in the underbelly of Gotham, the name Harvey Dent and all the good it stood for was lost…and Two-Face rose from the darkness. Armed with a set of .22 calibers, superior intellect and deep knowledge of criminal law, Two-Face is entranced by the idea of chance—making most of his decisions based on the outcome of a coin toss. Capable of orchestrating and carrying out well-organized, large-scale criminal operations, he makes sure the city’s streets continue to run red with blood. He’s unpredictable, and serves as a reminder of Gotham’s perpetual ability to corrupt and destroy all who seek to do good within it.
