I enjoyed this one. It's the collection of three Halloween tales, but they all stand on their own. There's something great about a very simple, early tale of Batman, facing off against a villain who is just do what they do to survive. Scarecrow works best here, as he's so unreachable mentally, he becomes just a force Batman must stop. The second tale with the Mad Hatter isn't as strong, but the bits with Barbra and Gordon are good. The last tale is the best of the three, turning a Christmas Carol into a Halloween nightmare for Bruce. There's so much to like in that story as Batman's villains show up as the ghost, though the last is a surprise and makes great sense.
Overall, with the art of Sale, and the pre-crazy Loeb writing, it's a great volume.
