The lights are on
This is the place for everything Batman. From comics, to movies, to, of course games. Come here to discuss anything that has to do with the Dark Night
@The Second Musketeer: Well, at least you've had a good intro to comics. The Killing Joke is another favorite of mine. I give Gail Simone props for basically keeping Babs alive for 20+ years. I've yet to read Year One but it is on my list of stories to read.
My pull list
Vocatus atque non vocatus deus aderit.
Yeah I looked on IGN's top 25 Best Batman Graphic Novels for help.

One died in India. Three was tracked down in Brazil. I am the only one left. I am The Second Musketeer
I like the comics they created for Arkham City the game.
Yeah, those were pretty good. I think they bridge the gap between Asylum and City pretty well.
I just received a copy of Batman Chronicles vol 1 that I bought on ebay. Any of you ever read one of those?
@The Second Musketeer: Ah yes, they're a really fun read. I only have volumes 1-4 but will add on more towards the middle/end of August. Enjoy it! It can be campy by today's standards but is still fun.
Awesome. I was looking at buying the archives editions but those were like 50-100 dollars a piece.
@The Second Musketeer: You know what, I honestly hadn't heard about those editions but will have to look into them, thanks to you. It seems that the only difference is that it's hardcover and contains more issues. I may seriously consider getting these in a few weeks. Thanks a lot!
I finally read the Killing Joke, my first Batman comic, actually. It makes every other interpretation of Batman outside of comics feel insufficient. The comic was much shorter than I expected, I finished it in about 30 minutes.
Yeah, It was a great story, but I kinda wish it was a bit longer.
@Handman: Glad you read it. I've not read that in so long I'll have to go back and re-read it. Now you have a greater appreciation for the current Batgirl series. :)
i'm glad they brought Barbara back as batgirl i liked her the best as that character, plausible explanation be damed.
I'm glad she's back in the saddle too but she was awesome as Oracle. I also miss both Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown. :( That being said, I do look forward to her showdown with the Joker.
yeah I miss them too i can't say i remember what happened to them though. and something has really bugged me with batman fans saying Babs should have stayed oracle because DC is letting down her fans. well what about her fans before she was oracle what about the batgirl fans guys? did they even think about them? and i'm not trying to instigate a fight i'm just thinking out loud
@TheGrayGhost: Fair enough. You bring up some good points. That's not even to mention how even Moore himself has said he didn't like how the story turned out in general. Wish I had more details about that but I don't feel like doing internet sleuthing at the moment.
