  • Found something worth sharing. I've already watched it around ten times today. The Joker impersonator is excellent.

  • *slow clap*

    And I just ordered that comic from Barnes & Noble yesterday!

    One died in India. Three was tracked down in Brazil. I am the only one left. I am The Second Musketeer

  • that one is great man the way the joker is drawn in that tale is proably my personal favorite. i think it's just how the joker should look when it comes to comics anyway.

  • Just got my first comics: The Dark Night Returns, Killing Joke, and Year one.

  • those are some of the greats i love the look of TDKR the artwork is gorgeous. the killing joke is a good story told through the artwork it feels like it has a film like quality to it. and i have to say year one is proably my most favorite story of the bunch i can't explain why really, maybe because it's a gordon story oh well.

  • I'm in the middle right now. It pretty interesting. I'm can't believe they found a way to get superman in it.

  • well it was the first time that they were actually drawn as rivals to one another, before that they were always friends. and think of this as more of an operatic tale that ends with a big finale.

  • I am actually pretty new to batman, i have only read the reboot, but i love it.

    Batman:Noel is great too, based on A Christmas Carol, but with batman, its really great

  • you should read haunted night it the same concept except with halloween instead of christmas. and it's quite good not to mention it comes with two other great/classic batman halloween stories but batman dream team Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale.

  • Oh and welcome to the group if you are new here if you've been member before this then welcome all the same.

  • Sounds like you all have some good choices. I'd also have to add: 

     

    1. A Death in the Family by Jim Starlin
    2. Battle for the Cowl by Tony Daniels (plus the tie-ins are good too)
    3. Lovers and Madmen by Michael Green 
    4. Knightfall (the novelization of the comic book trilogy Batman: Knightfall, Batman: Knightquest, and Batman: KnightsEnd) by Dennis O'Neil (I'm re-reading this now in anticipation for DKR)
    5. The Batman Chronicles for some hilarious, neck-snapping, flippant, Golden Age Batman. I've actually posted a few sample pics here.
    6. Batman: Dark Mirror (with Dick Grayson as Batman) by  Scott Snyder-the story focuses on the Gordon family and James Gordon Jr. in particular
    7. Batman: Under the Hood by Judd Winnick
    8. No Man's Land by Bob Gale
    9. Death Mask for an interesting take on the Batman mythos

    There're so many Batman comics out there I look forward to seeing more recommendations. If you can, hit up your local library where you can read some of these titles for free. That's what I did, for the most part, though I did buy Hush and Absolute Batman: The Long Halloween, amongst a few others.

    My pull list

  • I finished reading Dark Night returns. Its ending left me a bit confused, but I looked up an explanation. *spoilers?* Its cool that he found a way to continue fighting crime, even after he dies.

  • @The Second Musketeer: That is another very solid, often recommended story. How did you find it overall? Personally, I can't stand the art but I still have it. :)

  • Overall it was great. The story was great definitely. I don't know if this is common in comic books in general, but sometimes I couldn't tell exactly what was going on, because the art seemed mushed together. Mainly during some of the fights, like when he fought the Mutant Gang leader. Also it was confusing when it would switch from one scene to a different one, before juggling 3 scenes at a time. I don't know if it was just me or what, because this is the first comic I've ever read. I didn't really hate the art style though.

    I just finished The Killing Joke too. Now I'm about to read his first adventure in Batman Year One.
