Comic legend:

Alberto Falcone’s “corpse” was originally supposed to appear Batman: Long Halloween.

the condition:


Batman: Long Halloween It was a year-long series written by Jeff Loeb and the late great Tim Seal that saw Gotham City fall into the hands of a so-called holiday killer who, you know, killed people on holidays, like those guys who were murdered on Valentine’s Day…

Then the holiday killer left behind a token of the holiday in question…

How was Alberto Falcone written as a suspect?

One of the main suspects in Batman: Long Halloween He was Alberto Falcone, the apparent son of Carmine Falcone’s gang. However, in v4, one of the main suspects appears to have been taken off the game board when it appears that the Falcon has been killed…

And then his body fell off the boat on New Year’s Eve…

Batman confronts Falcon at his son’s grave in the next issue…

in Batman: Long Halloween #10, Gotham City coroner murdered…

In the next issue, Alberto Falcone’s aunt checks in at the coroner’s office when she, too, was murdered…

This was of course part of covering up the fact that Alberto Falcone was actually alive! He faked his death!

Whether Alberto really was the single Holiday Killer in the comic (or maybe there were multiple Holiday Killers out there) is another story entirely, but the main thing is that one of the parts of the plot that people still stuck to is that Alberto was the killer that when he was “killed.” There was no body! When Wizard He provided a list of suspects, among whom was Alberto, and specifically mentioned the absence of a body. But the funny thing is, the lack of a body wasn’t intended originally!

Was there originally a body in Long Halloween?

In the trade paperback collection of Batman: Long HalloweenThere’s a page where Alberto’s body was found! Apparently it wasn’t actually Alberto (and the coroner knows that, which is why Alberto had to kill him), but there was a corpse, where Loeb and Ciel clearly predicted that people would ask this question about no body. The page Seal drew with the body just so happened to not make its way into the published comic book…

It’s interesting to see that there are pages like this that didn’t go into the final comic book. I would have thought Sale wouldn’t have gone through the effort of drawing a page if it wasn’t for sure going into the final comic book, because this isn’t the same as a sitcom, where you shoot an X and cut it below the final product. Here, he had to do extra work in order not to be used.
