The Tim Sale and Jeff Loeb classic run The Long Halloween follows Batman in his early days as a vigilante.

They team up to take down The Roman, the patriarch of the notorious Falcone family, but as more holiday murders occur they realize they’re also dealing with a serial killer. The animated film tackles this highly anticipated storyline that is rumored to also serve as inspiration for Matt Reeves’ The Batman.
