As a tribute, we remember the five masterpieces of Tim Sale in DC Comics, which you can find in our online store
Batman: Haunted Knight
As a prequel to The Long Halloween, this edition collects three stories illustrated by Tim Sale.
On the wickedest of holidays, Halloween, the Dark Knight faces his deepest fears as he tries to stop the madness and horror created by Scarecrow, Mad Hatter, Penguin, Poison Ivy and Joker.
Batman: The Long Halloween
This is without a doubt Tim Sale’s masterpiece for DC Comics. The days of the calendar are piling up like the corpses on the streets of Gotham City. A killer is on the loose, killing only on holidays.
A mystery that occurs during Batman’s early days as a crime fighter. Over time, The Long Halloween has become one of the best Dark Knight stories of all time.
Batman: Dark Victory
It’s the first few years in the Dark Knight’s career, and Batman must stop an elusive cop killer called the Hanged Man before he strikes again. A children’s game nailed to each of the victims is the only clue to discover the identity of the criminal.
Two-Face, Joker, Riddler, Catwoman are suspects, as is the entire Gotham Police Department on the list of suspects.
To solve this crime, Batman must look in the most unexpected places: an orphaned boy who will change his life forever.
Catwoman: When you’re in Rome
When You’re in Rome tells the story of Catwoman’s mysterious trip to Italy and her relationship with the Falcone crime family, in a story where danger is latent.
On her way through Italy, Catwoman must battle some of Batman’s deadliest villains…and go claw to claw with a homicidal Cheetah!
Superman: For All Seasons
This list could not be complete without the presence of a story that follows the adolescence of Clark Kent, who little by little learns during adolescence what it means to be a hero, something that is not defined by powers.
Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb manage to tell an emotional and insightful story, humanizing the alien from another planet to be not only realistic but also relatable. It also features in-depth characterizations of Lana Lang, Lex Luthor, Lois Lane, and the Kents.
SMASH and DC Comics Mexico will soon have for sale this story that cannot be missing from your collection.
