  1. I used to read Batman comics a bit when I was younger. I liked comics but not enough to collect. I do have a few Batman comics I bought through an app. A Death in the Family was great. Read that when I was a kid and recently read it again

      • I bought issue 1 of Batman via an app. Interesting to see how times have changed in the writing style. I wanna get some of the newer Batman and Robin comics. Damien Wayne is wicked in the Batgirl series (Dick Grayson is Batman in most of the Batgirl comics, Bruce does come back, but he only appears like once real briefly, but Grayson appears a few times as Batman)

  2. Love them all, especially ‘The Killing Joke’ and ‘TDKR’. Both are great and really detail some character traits that aren’t ever zoomed in upon when you watch any of the movies. Love that you do these off beat posts every now and again. Great job friend!

    • Thanks, Paul. This one was fun. I’ve also started to actually re-read them as well. I’ll have some more of these types of posts lined up so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping in. 😀

  3. I agree with your Top 3. However, surprised to not see BATMAN: RIP in here.

    I thought the whole ‘home-less Bats’ and how he trains his psyche to foresee such a thing was another awesome testament of Bruce Wayne’s ‘always be prepared’ mentality.

    • You know what? I haven’t read RIP yet. Bad Batman fan Bad Batman fan! I love Morrison too. I’ll check it out from the library. The list may change, yet! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
