This time he will not joined by frequent collaborator Jeph Loeb. As a team, they worked on many critically acclaimed projects such as Superman for All Seasons, Daredevil: Yellow, Spider-Man Blue and Hulk: Grey and of course, Batman: The Long Halloween and its sequel Dark Victory.

It is unknown if Sale be working on either of these books or if he will be working on new projects. Regardless the return of Tim Sale is great news and hopefully we will find out what form it will take before next Halloween.
