This one's not a particularly famous story but it's still an interesting look at Two-Face. It first appeared in Secret Origins Special #1.

"Whenever it’s that level of shocking darkness, I think it gets you in the store. But I also genuinely believe that it’s been a really rough year for everybody, regardless of what political side you’re on. It’s a rough time. People are angry at each other. There’s a lot of divisiveness and terror out there about what’s going to happen, and from all corners. Metal is a story that’s about things that keep me and Greg up. It’s about the ways in which you can find yourself in a story that you didn’t think was possible, and it’s much darker than the one that you thought was inevitable." - Scott Snyder

'Eye of the Beholder'

'Eye of the Beholder' from Batman Annual #14 is probably the most important modern Two-Face story ever written. This was the issue that fleshed out Harvey Dent's origins and redefined his characterization as someone who was already struggling with his psyche before the acid hit. A lot of the material here was later used in 'The Long Halloween', the animated series as well as The Dark Knight.

Unfortunately this has yet to be reprinted by DC, either in trade or in digital format. I imagine the latter will happen sooner or later (Comixology is constantly adding old comics to the archive) but DC's treatment of this has always puzzled me.

'One of the complaints the Byrne Bashers like to dust off from time to time is that I have a "fetish" about young girls crushing on older men. In a forty five year career, this is something I have done a grand total of four times with Mac and Heather Hudson, Lana and Superman in GENERATIONS, Rita Farr and Cliff Steele, and Reed and Sue Richards. And that last one was set in place by Stan and Jack. As fetishes go, not much to write home about.' - John Byrne

There’s a thing readers should understand with this book: we’re not doing business in the normal way. There will be no tie-ins until we get back to Earth. We’re self-contained, telling our own story, beholden to nobody, and we’re on a trip out to the far reaches of Marvel Space, and we’re going to come back changed, and carrying something very special with us. -- Al Ewing

Fanvidding: A Navel-Gazing Post

So at one point I said I was going to talk about vids? My vids? I've made two FYI - or maybe five depending on how you count them.

I made my first (four) vid(s) in 2009. I only made a second vid this year. There’s an eight year and some months gap in between those two data points. That's not because I haven't had ideas. My spotify "VIDDING" playlist is currently over two and a half hours long. I have another spotify playlist where I quarantined most of my Star Trek ideas. It's called "USS SHAME SPIRAL." I have an iTunes playlist for some songs that aren't available on spotify. Probably ~30% of these ideas are more or less immediately viable, where "immediately viable" means I'm still full steam ahead with the idea, I already have the skills and tech to make it, I've watched/read all my source, all I need to do is acquire everything in the right format, clip, and vid. I'm just clinically bad at being self-motivated.

So, I'm going to talk about what motivated me those two times I did actually vid and maybe it will unlock the secrets of brain.

'Faces'

Continuing Harvey Dent's 75th anniversary is Matt Wagner's 'Faces' from Legends of the Dark Knight #28-30. It's considered by a lot of people to be one of the definitive Two-Face stories. I'm personally on the fence; it's well-written and drawn but Harvey's character and overall motivations are fairly inconsistent with how he's usually depicted. The story might have been served better with a number of other Bat-villains instead. But who knows, you might think differently.
