ok, wierd question...

what is you're favorite Batman arc?

personally i'm a massive fan of No Mans land and Contagion...

though you could probably say that Contagion, Legacy, Cataclysm and No Mans Land are one major arc.

anyone else got a different favorite?

Long Halloween and does The Dark Knight returns count?

#14 Posted by MyKuZ (4 posts) - - Show Bio

Year one, dark knight returns and Hush are my favorites. War games also is very good.

can anyone tell me where to begin reading Batman???? iv heard of No mans land buts thats a follow on to other, is there a praticularly good place to begin with???

#20 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

Start at the beginning of Knightfall

thats a good place to star and it's 'reasonably' recent, but with enough backstory and characters to get you in good stead for all the later stuff.

#21 Posted by Spectrum (4468 posts) - - Show Bio

Knightfall, excellent, thanks Methos. So..your evil now

#22 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

#23 Posted by Spectrum (4468 posts) - - Show Bio

#24 Posted by Spectrum (4468 posts) - - Show Bio

#25 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

#26 Posted by The WeatherMan (3214 posts) - - Show Bio

Hush was my favorite. But if we're talking about any story then "Arkham Asylum. A serious house on a serious earth."

Wonder if the killing joke could be called bats arc, cuz it's about joker right? I think this arc is important cuz it's sets the mind set to everyone that comic is not for kids only. How joker treats victim is as important as sue dibny rape in identity crisis.

#31 Posted by Sparda (15795 posts) - - Show Bio

Dark Knight Returns, I suppose. If it counts. Otherwise, Knightfall.

#32 Posted by Voltaire (4 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree with shatterstar..gotta go with Knightfall

and then crusade and knights end.

yeah, i'll back Killing Joke as the most disturbing Batman arc so far...

Long Halloween - Unbelievably great storyline, and truly surprising killer

The Dark Knight Returns - a classic

Hush - mostly because of the art: Jim Lee can do no wrong!

Knights End - I loved when Lady Shiva trained Batman

#38 Posted by ManwithoutFear (3 posts) - - Show Bio

No Mans Land is the best

#39 Posted by Akira Overdrive (10089 posts) - - Show Bio

Hush...hands down.

#40 Posted by Angelic Reaper (7540 posts) - - Show Bio

The Dark Knight returns and No Man's Land

#41 Posted by MrsJ (305 posts) - - Show Bio

Does the Killing Joke count?? Because that was the greatest book I've EVER read. Then after that I's say #2 is Arkham Asylum...#3 is The Long Halloween. All amazing graphic novels.

I liked all of those, especially since I actually remember them. Hush was interesting but it made my head hurt.
