I picked this up because I saw a short story Pratt did in Heavy Metal. It was black and white and very sparse. I think I liked it because it stood out; most HM stuff is very detailed. This book was disappointing because he chose to cover everything in a very bland muddy painted color.

The story was awful and I stopped reading it to just look at the paintings, but none were very well done.

This graphic novel is an example of what occurs when style is given more weight than substance. The artwork is beautiful, a mixture of paint and pastel which makes every page come to life in luminescent color. The story is mundane; Batman is trying to catch yet another supernatural killer, all the while butting heads with the police and tormented by nightmares. So, another Tuesday in Gotham.

You have to give George Pratt credit for trying to create a threat outside of Batman's usual Rogue's Galle

This is definitely not your typical Batman. I loved everything about it. The darker, gory story line was a great change of pace. The art style took a few pages to get into. Once I got used to it, I loved it. I would recommend this to older fans of Batman due to the extremely dark content. It made the perfect Halloween read.

Recommends it for: batman fans; brereton fans
Excellent art, slightly reminiscent of Dan Brereton; the supernatural element was... unexpected, and not entirely fitting. Worth a read, if only for the art.

Story is ridiculous and the writing is bad, but the art is great.

Batman goes after a serial killer with help from Jim Gordon. A simple enough story with impressive artwork. The art is what I will remember from this book. An ok read.

Historia extraña y dibujos más extraños. Aunque es un comic de Batman de terror y es una historia sobre satanismo, dos elementos que me atraían para abordarla, deja mucho que desear.

In this painted volume from George Pratt, the Batman faces a murder mystery that spans the realms of the supernatural. Ritualistic killings begin appearing across Gotham City, hearkening back to a string of unsolved deaths just like them six years earlier. Plagued by nightmares of demons and blood, Batman seeks the assistance of surviving witness Luci Boudreaux. A so-called "white witch," Luci directs Batman to seek out more metaphysical motives and prevent any more Gothamites from falling victi ...more

mysterious murders which are conected to the past? mmm ok yeah. the first 1\4 is quite good but then comes all these paranormal things and the story takes the down hill. The art is good though

Zeer mooi getekend, interessant verhaald, dat buiten het stereotiepe ligt, maar niet noodzakelijk echt diepgaand is. Niettemin: zeer goed.

Çizimler ciddi manada kötü. Hikaye de oldukça zayıf. İlk defa Batman'in bir one shot'ını sevmedim.

it leaves the memory of old sticky blood, lying still glistening on the face of a church.

The art for this is really, really amazing. The story is also cool, but the art makes this book!
