About the Author:

Jeph Loeb is an Emmy Award-nominated and Eisner Award-winning writer/producer living in Los Angeles. In television, his many credits include SmallvilleLost, and Heroes, and in film, Teen Wolf and Commando. In comics, he is best known for his work with the supremely talented artist and partner-in-crime Tim Sale on Batman: The Long Halloween, Superman for All Seasons, and Catwoman: When in Rome for DC as well as Daredevil Yellow, Spider-Man Blue, and Hulk Gray for Marvel.

Tim Sale is the Eisner Award-winning artist of Batman: The Long Halloween, Superman for All Seasons, Hulk: Gray, and more. His art was prominently featured on the hit NBC series Heroes.

From Booklist:

Loeb produces and writes for the hit TV series Heroes; Sale paints the prophetic paintings that figure prominently in it. Before their small-screen work, they collaborated on comic books that viewed with imaginative new eyes the early exploits of iconic superheroes. This ambitious Batman caper ran for 13 months, from Halloween 1993 to Halloween 1994. In it, the Caped Crusader joins with police captain Jim Gordon and district attorney Harvey Dent to get the goods on Mob boss Carmine Falcone. Meanwhile, a mysterious serial killer targets members of Falcone's gang. Contrasting with that Godfather-inspired story line are early appearances of such colorfully garbed Batman adversaries as the Joker and Catwoman. Long Halloween exemplifies the creative team's hallmarks: Loeb's intricate plotting and gift for updating the venerable characters while keeping true to their long-standing portrayals, and Sale's expressive illustration, with its gauntly elegant figures and attractively designed compositions. Here accorded DC's Absolute treatment—hardcover and board slipcase, accompanying creator interviews, original proposal, and early sketches—Sale's already impressive artwork becomes genuinely spectacular at oversize scale. Flagg, Gordon
