I want to buy more TradePaperBack of batman.
I have this:
- Killing Joke
- Arkham Asylum
- Year one
- The Dark knight returns
- Batman: Venom
- Batman: Blind justice
- Batman: Earth one
Thanks in advance.
Im sure you can find a list of trade paperbacks...somewhere. You can also find a list of story arcs on here too, most likely. However, I would recommend Hush, No Man's Land, The Return of Bruce Wayne, and Knightfall. Also, you should look outside the trade pbs and try to find some one-shots such as some of the Elseworlds tales. Of those, I recommend Gotham by Gaslight, The Doom that Came to Gotham, and In Darkest Night (sp?). But also, dont forget that Batman always seems to play an integral role in any major DC storyline, so things like Final Crisis could be on your reading list too. Good luck, and enjoy!
I'd second Hush, The Return of Bruce Wayne, and Knightfall. No Man's Land gets mixed feelings from me. Really liked some of it, but on the whole, I think you can pass on it.
Also, on the idea of Elseworlds, I'd recommend Kingdom Come. Easily one of my all time favorites. It's not a "Batman" story, but he plays a big role in it, and I like the interpretation of him there.
I would third Knightfall. Along with that I'd say Bane of the Demon (collected in Batman vs. Bane TP) and Legacy, especially if you're a fan of Bane like I am...
I'd recommend The Batman Chronicles too, if you're at all interested in his Golden Age stories.
The Long Halloween, Haunted Knight and Dark victory. Written by Jeph Loeb and leads more or less into each other. Personally I taught the stories where better than the Hush story.
This. I'd also recommend, since you already have Venom, the other almost-outside-of-continuity arcs from Legend of the Dark Knight. The first arc, Shaman, is especially good. Faces, Gothic, Prey, Terror, Blades and Siege are also topnotch.
If you need a reading order for some of these...
