Über den Autor
Jeph Loeb is an Emmy award nominated and Eisner award winning writer/producer living in Los Angeles. In television, his many credits include "Smallville, Lost" and "Heroes" and in film, "Teen Wolf" and "Commando." In comics, he is best known for his work with the supremely talented artist and partner-in-crime TIM SALE on BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN, SUPERMAN FOR ALL SEASONS, CATWOMAN: WHEN IN ROME for DC as well as "Daredevil Yellow, Spider-Man Blue" and "Hulk Gray" for Marvel. Tim Sale is not only the artist for the numerous collaborations with Jeph Loeb listed above, but has also worked on DEATHBLOW, BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT, "Grendel," "Wolverine/Gambit: Victims," "Billi 99," "Amazon," and various other projects. He had the distinct honor of being the first creator chosen for the artist spotlight series SOLO.
Jeph Loeb's writing is keenly aware that Batman is a detective, and Tim Sale portrays a Gotham that is a fertile breeding ground for corruption and madness. Here, Batman is coming to terms with the potent image he projects and the madness it attracts. There are many fine Batman stories, but the ones that capture the spirit with extreme clarity are few.--Danny Graydon. 384 pp.
