    Me too, I never understand the amazement of Batman: Year One. Sure it's a hard-boiled, noir, crime comic that is still one of the best. But to me as a year one story, Man Without Fear is still an infinitely much better story.

    Long Halloween.
    Neither is that great though, and are carried by the art

    I loved Long Halloween so much I initially refused to buy Dark Victory because I pretentiously convinced myself I “didn’t want to spoil the original with a sequel.”

    Found a Dark Victory trade for cheap years later and decided to try it, much to my delight. Loved it, too.

    When I read these, oh some 16 years ago, it was back to back in the nice editions everyone could find at Barnes & Noble, my friend had both, I read them both cover to cover in one sitting. So to me they're impossible to separate because it feels like one story.

    Long Halloween. Even though I dislike several things about it, especially the plot at the very end, Dark Victory has too many things that really bother me, specifically the hanging.

    Dark Victory if only because it ends a little happier, has Robin, and Chief O'Hara is in there for two pages .
