Okay so im not an avid comic book buyer.I love batman and always find his stories very interesting.I know the basics of whats gone on between Batman RIP to now,But id like to read the actual story because supposedly its a very good read.So i was wondering if someone could help me get the right Trades,i was thinking

  • Batman RIP
  • Battle for the Cowl
  • Batman:Reborn
  • Return of Bruce Wayne
  • And then the Court of Owls Trade when it comes out in may

Let me know if im missing something,or one of them i dont necessarily need

Well, The Black Glove leads into RIP, so you might wanna add that. Also, if you're just focusing on Bruce Wayne, which it seems like you are, I guess you don't necessarily NEED Battle for the Cowl if you're not gonna check out any of the stuff that follows it (with Dick Grayson being Batman). However, I'd say still just read it simply for the sake of it, but that's up to you since you probably wanna watch your money with buying trades.

@Zomboid: Yeah i knew it didn't actually have Bruce Wayne in it,but i wasn't sure if it would still be necessary to the plot. I might still buy it and add the black glove.I gotta total up the costs and make a final decision.

i would recommend Batman and Robin (having Dick Batman and Damian Wayne is a good mix to Batman) and Black Mirror

You definitely should check out the Black Mirror, one of the best Batman stories ever told.
