Two-Face: A Celebration of 75 Years
One of Batman's most iconic and dangerous villains has long been the the former District Attorney turned criminal mastermind, Harvey Dent, AKA, Two-Face. Once, he was a rising star in Gotham law enforcement, but while prosecuting a mobster, Dent was horribly disfigured in a retaliatory acid attack. His face disfigured, and his psyche split in two, Dent took his lucky two headed coin and disfigured one side, leaving all of his decisions up to a simple flip of the coin. A brilliant tactician who is now obsessed with duality, Two-Face has become a thief who specializes in doubles. From robbing the Second National Bank to kidnapping twin heirs of a major fortune, Two-Face is a dangerous as he is tragic. Constantly struggling between doing what he knows is right, and what his more bestial nature wants. Originally developed as a homage to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Two-Face is one of the most recognizable villains of all time, probably missing out only to the Joker. Two-Face has long been a favorite of not only fans, but of writers and artists as well. While the Joker is completely psychotic and amoral, Two-Face is a tormented character, forever torn between his desire for, and quest to bring justice to Gotham, and the complete opposite in his desire to rob, cheat and steal to fuel his own twisted belief system. 75 Years of Two-Face is a collection of his greatest hits including his origins and all their ret-cons - his self hatred, and his burning desire to destroy his nemesis and former friend Batman. While Two-Face may not be for everyone, fans of Batman and comic historians will find this an indispensable addition to their collections.
