  1. Impressive list, good work on keeping track of continuity ;)

  2. No Two Face Strikes Twice in here anywhere? Because of the flip book style?

  3. Y'know over a year-and-a-half ago I made a conscious decision to not include it based upon that fact that we never heard from Gilda or her twins ever again. BUT, I've since been trolling around the message boards and forums and discovered that most people believe "Two-Face Strikes Twice" to be canon. Plus, since Gilda has made her recent return (thanks to Tony Daniel), and also since you are asking where it is... I have been considering putting this story into the chronology. HOWEVER, Daniel's last issue of Batman implied that Gilda hooked up with Mario Falcone shortly after the events of "Long Halloween" and has been with him ever since. If that is indeed the case, it would render "Two-Face Strikes Twice!" non-canon. SO, once the Daniel's wrap-up issue comes out, I will make my informed decision. Thanks for reading! -Collin C

  4. OK, now that Tony Daniel has finished YET ANOTHER TERRIBLE Batman story-arc (seriously, is there ANYONE out there that enjoys his writing? I'm even sick of his art!)... But enough Tony Daniel bashing, where was I? Oh, yes, now that "Pieces" has wrapped up, I'm pretty sure Daniel has ignored "Two-Face Strikes Twice." The Gilda in "Pieces" is definitively the Gilda from "Long Halloween" and it is implied, as I have stated above, that Gilda hooked up with Mario Falcone shortly after the events of "Long Halloween" and has been with him ever since. Also, the lack of mention of their children seems to mean that they don't have children i.e. "Two-Face Strikes Twice" has been rendered NON-CANON. Sorry, fans. Blame Tony Daniel.
