Though not surprising in the slightest, I was pleasantly happy to see Two-Face Year One in this weekâ€™s pull lists. I was however surprised that it was only a two parter, but then I found that it was 48 pages long, and â€¦ needless to say, as a big Harvey Dent fan, Iâ€™ll be looking forward to buying this in TPB.
