One of DC’s best Batman stories, Batman The Long Halloween, is getting a sequel series with Batman The Long Halloween: The Last Halloween.

Jeph Loeb returns to write the ten-part mystery story, which will spin out of the events of 2021’s Batman The Long Halloween Special. Loeb worked with artist Tim Sale on these comics, but after Sale’s passing, Loeb will be joined by several artists including Eduardo Risso (100 Bullets, Detective Comics, The Batman Who Laughs), Dave Stewart and Richard Starkings.

Other artists include Klaus Janson (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Detective Comics, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight), Mark Chiarello (Batman: Black and White, Batman/Houdini: The Devil’s Workshop), and more who will be announced later.

Loeb said in a statement: “Batman The Long Halloween: The Last Halloween is Tim Sale’s parting gift to me. Tim and I had already decided to tell this last chapter following Batman: The Long Halloween Special, which will serve as the prologue to this 10-part action-packed mystery.”

Batman The Long Halloween: The Last Halloween is described as a 10-part mystery continuing. In the first issue, “Gotham City learns to fear Halloween once more as a terrible event threatens to destroy Jim Gordon’s life and puts Batman and Robin’s teamwork to the test more than ever before. In a city of liars, masked vigilantes, and criminals…can anyone be trusted?”

Loeb continued: “Tim’s unfortunate passing put our plans for this series on hold. About a year later, after speaking with Mark Chiarello and Richard Starkings, my partners on the previous Long Halloween titles, we decided the time was right to move this forward as a tribute to Tim, who continues to be with us in spirit.

He added: “This story concludes the war between the freaks and the crime families forever, as Batman, Robin, and DC’s most infamous Bat-villains face off against Holiday, and secrets dating back to Batman The Long Halloween Special will be revealed.”

Batman The Long Halloween: The Last Halloween #1 will be available on Wednesday, September 25th.
