Batman comic book recommendations.


Pretty much what the title says really. Which are the good ones?

Ive read most of the early comics from DC up until about 1970 but I know there were loads of spin offs over the years.

So far Ive only read Book of the Dead but I have Hush, Year One and DK Returns to read.

So, any recommendations?

Nat.

Everything I'm gonna say has already been said.
My number one favorite graphic novel of all time is Kingdom Come. But if you want more Batman related stuff I'd suggest the more well known ones: Year One, Long Halloween, Dark Victory and Hush. They're all very good. emoticon
