We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:Batman Family: Year One.
Collecting 7 Issues:
  • Batman Annual #19
  • Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight Annual #5
  • Batman: Shadow of the Bat Annual #3
  • Detective Comics Annual #8
  • Robin Annual #4
  • Catwoman Annual #2
  • Azrael Annual #1
Covers: (click to enlarge)
TPB Cover: Batman Annual #19

To me, this collection sells itself. What's not to love? A bunch of Year One stories starring Batman, Catwoman, Robin and Azrael, and featuring first year encounters with Scarecrow, Two-Face, Joker, Man-Bat, Poison Ivy, and Riddler, and more!

I've suggested the Batman Family title as a way for DC to keep that title copyright enforced. For the cover, I'd go with Batman Annual #19.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.

I'd love if DC could put up TPB of these Year ones from the 90s!
This Bat-family idea of yours or even another one for the other non-Bats characters! (Aquaman Year One, Deathstroke Year one, etc..)

Thanks.  I've got ideas for other "Year One" trades, but I just haven't put them in a blog yet.  With the apparent new restrictions on the number of blogs per day (including blog edits) it might be awhile.

Sure! (sorry for the huge delay, but missed this comment previously~)
