Two Face Year One

The story is based on Harvey Dent and how he became Two-Face...obviously. To really understand this story you need to read "The Long Halloween" by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Sable makes some references to The Long Halloween. Such as he makes a few comments about the holiday killer and even at one point Harvey makes the comment to Maroni that after flipping the coin luck is on his side but unfortunately Alberto says its a holiday. What I really liked about this story is that it goes into details about how Maroni got the acid into the court and Harvey Dents past. During this time Dent is running against Mort Weinstein for distric attourney. Sable shows the rivalry that Dent and Weinstein have had since college and how it still continues. There is a panel where Harvey and his psycharist are talking in the past and they are talking about Harvey's other side. You get the chance to see Harvey fail during this issue when he first tried to bring Maroni and how he eventually got Marioni. The story shows how corrupt Gotham's public services really are. With the betrayal of a person Harvey believe to be a friend. This was a great read and I'm pumped for the next issue to some out. Mark Sable wrote a terrific story and Jesus Saiz added some great artwork.

No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power...Green Lantern's light!
