didnt care much for him as a kid, not the comics at least, but as an adult his 🤬 is the most appealing to me. just finished that no mans land and gates of gotham, I love how the writers find new ways to expand on not only his character but even the city he lives in.

    Awesome, Batman: Dark Knight is probably my favorite series that i have. he currently has too many story lines imo, i dunno if they all are in the same universe or not, hes got Batman, Batman and Robin, Batman Detective, Batman Dark Knight. but the 🤬 dope man. By far has the coolest villains imo. not a fan of all of his side kicks tho.

    from a Batman fan and DC head here's the top stories most everyone should know:

    The Dark Knight Returns
    Year One
    Arkham Asylum
    The Killing Joke
    The Long Halloween
    Dark Victory
    Hush
    A Death in the Family
    Batman: Black and White
    Son of the Demon
    The Cult

    Batman_-_The_Cult_4.jpg

    and some must-read Elseworld tales featuring Batman:

    Moench and Jones 'Vampire Trilogy' (Red Rain, Bloodstorm, Crimson Mist)
    Gotham by Gaslight
    Superman: Red Son
    Kingdom Come

    IMO the 70's era is the prime/original era of today's Batman. anything from this decade by Dennis O'Neil and Neil Adams is classic stuff that will get slept on by newer generations, you can't understate how influential these stories were on the character and on comics as a whole. you can find many of these stories in the trade called Batman: Tales of the Demon which is a compilation of the original Ras Al Ghul stories from this era.

    Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth changed the game forever when it came out in 1989. to this day it stands alone

    the Michael Turner art is a thing to behold. some of the best ever renditions of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Big Barda, Darkseid and Supergirl

    mid-90's Kelly Jones run is a favorite of mine besides the Neal Adams stuff. Kelly Jones started out with Red Rain/vampire trilogy and then did the Knightfull covers, later his run as regular penciller was really bizarre but great.. he definitely had his own syle 🤬 was wild

    anything from Jim Lee since he came to Batman and DC comics is top though

    if you're checking purely for great story though start with Year One (or just watch the kick ass new animated film)

    then right after takes place The Long Halloween and Dark Victory

    Batman_Villains_022.jpg

    or go straight to the classic:
    Batman+The+Dark+Knight+Returns+-+Cover.jpg

    and the more recent sequel:

    and like people said Hush is great (best art too)
