The Batcave: The Official All Things Batman Thread
#21
There are so many issues/arcs of Legends of the Dark Knight I never read. It came out when I was like 12 or so, and it really wasn’t for me.


I wish DC was doing a book like that currently, even though i never bought the old one regularly. I just like the idea of it existing.

And the title should stay, that’s gold.

Moore's The Killing Joke? Morrison's Arkham Asylum?

Loeb & Sale's Long Halloween, Dark Victory, Haunted Knight?

Azzarello & Bermejo's Joker?

Brubaker's The Man Who Laughs?

Dini & Timm's Mad Love?

Neal Adams and Marshall Rogers both have good Batman-centric collections. And there's a series of Batman In The... collections by decade (Forties, Fifties, etc) that do a good job.

Boom. I wish those Aparo collections weren't already OOP (the first one, at least). I kick myself for not buying them.

Next year I'm planning a rewatch of all the animated series + Beyond (maybe even JLU if I have the time)

Hmmm.

You might like the Batman: Black And White collections. Four volumes, all short stories, all interesting creators.

For some reason I thought I already had those but I just checked the shelf and I don't. I may have been thinking of the Grendel:Black White and Red stuff which I know I have somewhere in this apartment.

Yep! That's the world we're living in now - collections printed close to original orders. And collected editions just as sought after as the back issues themselves!

To buy the books, I could just get the issues themselves.

WHICH IS WHAT I'M DOING. SLOWLY.

My first Batman comic I was 10 or a 11. Read the shit out of it. Detective was my go to Bat Book at the time. I had been reading marvel for 6-months to a year at that point but got big into the bat afterwards.


This was my first Batman comic. It was a two parter. I never got the second part.

Ha. I got last a ways back and I still need to get the follow-up, as well. The Spook is an elusive adversary!

There are times I think about getting the next issue. Then I wonder if it will live up to the hype in my mind.
