Batman 201

I know how you feel (or at least I hope I do.) You’re excited, eager to dig into some more Batman comics, but at the same time also a little confused because you’ve already gone through all the major arcs everybody always recommends (Long Halloween, Year One, Knightfall, maybe even Court of Owls) and you’re not sure where to go next. Fear not, Bat-fan! In the tradition of Batman 101 before it, I’ve compiled this handy list I like to call Batman 201 to suggest some next steps for the budding Bat-fan who’s looking to branch out from the standards and start taking some deeper dips into the Batman mythos. Here’s what I think you ought to give a look at after reading the “New to Batman” list from Batman 101:

  • Lovers and Madmen
  • The Man Who Laughs
  • No Man’s Land
  • Death and the Maidens
  • War Games
  • Batman and Son
  • The Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul
  • The Black Glove
  • Heart of Hush
  • Batman: R.I.P
  • Time and the Batman
  • Final Crisis
  • Battle for the Cowl
  • Batman Reborn
  • The Return of Bruce Wayne
  • Gates of Gotham
  • Batman Incorporated
  • Flashpoint
  • Detective Comics: Faces of Death
  • Batman and Robin: Born to Kill
  • The Dark Knight: Knight Terrors

That should keep you busy for long enough for Batman 301 to come along…
