Batman: The Long Halloween Extras Explore the Tragedy of Familial Loss

No Comments

The upcoming 4k combo pack release of Batman: The Long Halloween will include bonus content. The clip focuses on the loss of a member of the family.

The segment, which you can view in its entirety down below, is taken from a special feature called “Batman: The Long Halloween – Evolution of Evil.” In it, a clinical psychologist by the name of Dr. Drea Letamendi discusses how the narrative handles the death of a member of a family. Dr. Letamendi initially concentrates on the Falcone and Maroni crime families and how viewers may comprehend the sorrow that they’re facing even though they don’t particularly like either group. He does this so viewers can empathize with the criminals. There is also a connection between this and the unresolved grief that Bruce Wayne/Batman feels over the death of his parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. “So what’s amazing about this tale is that we see this kind of development of family with him, Commissioner Gordon, and Harvey Dent,” she continues. “So what’s wonderful about this story is that we see this kind of formation of family.”

What Is Batman: The Long Halloween?

Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale are responsible for the writing and illustration of Batman: The Long Halloween, which is widely regarded as one of the best stories about the Dark Knight ever told. The events of the narrative, which began in 1996 and ran for a total of 13 issues, took place in the beginning of Batman’s career as a crime fighter, and it follows him as he investigates a murderer who targets people on special occasions. The Maroni and Falcone families play an important part in the book and chart Harvey Dent’s metamorphosis into the villainous Two-Face.
