This paperback collects the Batman: Dark Victory storyline which was written by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale. It is the sequel to the Batman: The Long Halloween storyline. The Batman: Dark Victory storyline was published from November, 1999 to December, 2000 in its own comic book series Batman: Dark Victory.

This story takes place in an early time in Batman's life when James Gordon, Harvey Dent, and the vigilante himself were all just beginning their roles as Gotham's protectors. Once a town controlled by organized crime, Gotham City suddenly finds itself being run by lawless freaks, such as Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and The Joker. Witnessing his city's dark evolution, the Dark Knight completes his transformation into the city's greatest defender. He faces multiple threats, including the seeming return of a serial killer called Holiday. Batman's previous investigation of Holiday's killings revealed that more than one person was responsible for the murders. So the question remains who's responsible for Holiday's crimes this time.
