Welcome to the DC specials contest! In this contest, 28 specials and four especially notable multipart cases will be facing off against each other for... some kind of supremacy. The format is single elimination, with pairings being determined by a standard bracket (see bottom of the post for the bracket). During the first two rounds, the faceoffs will last roughly 4 days. In the next round, they will be 5 days, then 6, the finals last 7 days. If there is a tie, the tiebreaker will be the time in seconds of the OP. If the OP was posted at an even second (.ie. hh:mm:30), the first entry will win; if the time in seconds is odd (i.e. hh:mm:31) the second entry will win. Lame tiebreak, I know. The links provided are from TheQuyen's thread, many props to him for maintaining it.
Anyway, on to the contest. This time, we have the both the oldest and the most recent DC specials.

Detective Movies Contest 2013: Information Thread Current Faceoff
"The energies of our system will decay; the glory of the sun will be dimmed, and the earth, tideless and inert, will no longer tolerate the race which has for a moment disturbed its solitude. Man will go down into the pit, and all his thoughts will perish. The uneasy consciousness, which in this obscure corner has for a brief space broken the contented silence of the universe, will be at rest. Matter will know itself no longer. 'Imperishable monuments' and 'immortal deeds,' death itself, and love stronger than death, will be as though they had never been."
