My entry point to TLH, along with many other Millennials, was via trade. The original covers, while nicely designed, are not to my personal collecting tastes.

Looking for a great example, it was very difficult to find something that evoked the whole story: the characters, the holidays, the city, and the tone of it all. This was always the singular piece I identified TLH with, but something I considered locked away, having asked the previous owner to sell a number of times without success.

Fast forward, and Alex B suddenly sold the item to JL, who graciously offered it to me, knowing how much I admire the piece.

20 years later, and TLH remains one the most influential Batman stories ever told, going on to inspire the Nolan trilogy and the next generation of comic creators. Christopher Nolan calls it “More than a comic book. It’s an epic tragedy." and David Goyer, "THE LONG HALOOWEEN stands out as probably the most ambitious Batman story that’s been told."

Big thanks to JL for letting this one go and to Ed for the assist.
