Rory_bat if you ever get the chance, check Legends of the Dark KNight Number # 100.

There is another version of Robin's origin in the first story there that's pretty solid also that I think would translated to a movie just fine. Plus some great painted artwork.

Excellent, I'll have to scope that one out.

I thought the artwork was great as well. What I was disappointed in re: TLH was the wasting of the rogue gallery. I understand that with all of the gang-related conflict (which was fantastic!), something had to get shortchanged, but I think that if you aren't going to do a character justice, just don't put him/her in there at all.

There are some truly brilliant moments in there, though.

I've mentioned before I hate Loeb's way of stating the obvious.

"Carmine the Roman Falcone, the untouchable crime lord's penthouse." Yeah, I think we figured that out by now.

Even Miller is more subtle in his writing. Yep, I said it. He never has to outright name every character or setting whenever they appear. He parodies this in All-Star (Dick Grayson, age 12).

What's the difference between the normal and absolute version?

And when was the absolute version released?

The absolute edition is a library Atlas sized book with special features (like a two-disc DVD).

It was released April 7, 2007. I'm not sure what it exactly includes, but it has a bunch of extra stuff, deleted material, the Nolan/Goyer intro and other stuff. The normal version just has the graphic novel and that is it.

Thank you. My normal version is a bit ragged. I think I may pick this up.

No prob. It looks to be quite the good investment.

Why is Batman jumping out of a big, blue vag?

EDIT: I opted for rory_bat's more philologically-correct "vag" in lieu of my original rendering of "vaj". Props to Rory, as per usual.

peteagassi

Thank you for copying this for us. Very nice of you Sir!.


I'm very glad that about the comments that TDK will be heavily influenced by TLH. Well I was sure it would be a influence,but good that its a "heavy" influence

Regarding the DKR and TLH, well not going to start this again. I like both works a lot. DKR wins by a bit becouse it just was such a "WOW!!!!" experience the first time I read it, Loeb/Sale's stuff is wonderful,and I'm just happy that quality Batman work like Millers Y1 and Loebs TLH influence the filmmakers.

Hello everybody,

I'm new to this forum, and I know that this thread is quite old by now, but if anyone has got the Absolute Edition of The Long Halloween - could you please write me the page numbers of Nolan's introduction? (If any page numbers are given.) Currently, I am writing a research paper about The Dark Knight and would like to quote from the introduction, but my older edition of The Long Halloween doesn't have it.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Best,
Robert
