"...Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, 'Batman: The Long Halloween', Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the 'Batman', to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen 'Police Captain James Gordan' and 'District Attorney Harvey Dent' in order to take down 'The Roman', head of the notorious and powerful 'Falcone Crime Family'.
