As the movie adaption takes off, DC Comics has announced that ‘Batman: The Long Halloween‘ comic book story-arc is getting a sequel.
According to a press release,
‘A quarter century has passed since the release of the Eisner Award winning Batman: The Long Halloween from the creative team of writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale. On October 12, 2021, Loeb and Sale return to continue their story and show that some secrets never stay buried in Batman: The Long Halloween Special.
“Twenty-five years ago, Tim Sale and I set out to tell a mystery tale of how Gotham City went from crime to freaks,” said Jeph Loeb. “The result was Batman: The Long Halloween. We’re thrilled to be back at DC revisiting some of our favorite characters all the while revealing that you may not know the whole story…”
Join the team for the return of the Batman Halloween specials and a mystery that could destroy Batman, Commissioner Gordon, Two-Face, and…well, that would be telling, wouldn’t it?
“As it has always been, working together on Batman has brought out the best of Jeph and myself as Gotham City storytellers,” added Tim Sale. “We have been blessed to have the mighty talents of Comicraft’s Richard Starkings with us every step of the way, and are very fortunate to welcome colorist, Brennan Wagner, to help shape our latest venture.”‘
This is my all-time favorite Batman story, so I am excited to see the original team working on a side story. One was produced before titled Two-Face Year One that was packaged with Scarecrow Year One, but they were done with different creative teams. Seeing Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb coming together to do a sequel is going to be good.
Following its predecessor, Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2 will be released on July 27th, 2021.
