So, recently I've been collecting Grant Morrison's entire Batman run. I'm about half way through and I thought this would be a great time to not only collect his run but get caught up on the major recent events in the Batman mythos and then from there jump into collecting the New 52.

Anyway, I've got a reading list here, and if some users wouldn't mind

looking it over to see if there's

anything I missed it would really help me out. Here is is:

Batman & Son

The resurrection of RA's al ghoul

The black glove

Batman R.I.P

Final Crisis

Whatever happened to the caped crusader

Battle for the cowl

Batman & Robin vol. 1, 2, 3, and 4

The return of Bruce Wayne

Time and the Batman

Batman incorporated deluxe edition

Batman black mirror

flashpoint.

If you made it this far: thanks for reading. Any help is appreciated. :)

Oh, and sorry for any bad spelling. I'm using the phone right now.

Also, I think there's a book or two between The return of Bruce Wayne and Time and the Batman, but I'm not sure what they are or if they're even necessary...

I *think* these two should be switched around:

The resurrection of RA's al ghoul

The black glove

And if I recall rightly, there's only one or two issues in resurrection that's relevant to the overall story (not that I recommend you skip the rest - I enjoyed it very much)

Batman & Robin vol. 1, 2, 3, and 4

There's a vol. 4?? Do you have the title? I've only ever heard of 3, but then, I'm no expert. Or wait, is it Dark knight vs. White knight?

The one you're missing could be the trade titled Bruce Wayne - The Road Home. It's about Bruce when he's back in Gotham, how he 'got back in business' so to speak.

@kangaxx_54: Thank you for the advice. I'll add The Road Home to my revised list. :)

And yes, Batman & Robin vol. 4 is Dark Knight vs. White Knight.

@bierschneeman: Thanks! I don't have a Comixology account, but I'll look into that. I've read Long Halloween, Death in the Family, and Hush. I need to get my hands on Knightfall...
