Best of Batman

From graphic novels to non-fiction to paperbacks to childrens books, Batman is everywhere, and deserves his own "Best of" list. Just try and avoid books where he only makes a cameo.

Andy Pachman All-stars?...seriously?


message 2: by Shane (new)

Shane Carter My favourite batman graphics are
Dark knight returns
Dark knight strikes back
Batman odyssey
Death by design
The cult
Long Halloween
Fear the reaper
Court of the owls
Black mirror
Not in any order. I know that a few of them are highly criticised but I love them, is there anyone else who really loved batman odyssey. Yes it does make sense.

Shane, if you really love Death By Design, Fear The Reaper and The Cult, why you're not vote The Cult (#51), Year Two Fear The Reaper (#105) and Death By Design (#194)? Just curious. :-)


message 4: by Shane (new)

Shane Carter Good point, only recently joined good reads and haven't been through whole list yet. Thank you.


message 5: by Wirotomo (new)

Wirotomo Nofamilyname Ah Shane, you have voted for those 3 books and add Batman Odyssey. Good! so we can get more and more choices of Batman graphic novels. :-)

OOT, i see that many voters have their vote with lower ratings (ie: he/she rated it 2 stars) above the higher one (ie: he/she rated it 5 stars). Are their opinion change?
Or they don't know that if you vote for a book, that book will come up at the bottom of "My Votes" section (on the right side of you computer). but you can change that by changing the number position.
For my case, if I read another Batman comics, i will vote those comics, and it will be at no. 55. From my read, i think it should stay at no. 35. So I can change the number to 35, and the book will be at no. 35.
Really curious. :-)

#i apologize for my poor english ;-)


message 7: by Anton (new)

Anton Is Birth of the Demon on this list?


message 8: by Wirotomo (last edited Jan 04, 2014 04:41PM) (new)

Wirotomo Nofamilyname Birth of the Demon that consist of full trilogy: Son of the Demon, Bride of the Demon & Birth of the Demon is on No. 238. Batman Birth of the Demon by Mike W. Barr

But the "real" Birth of the Demon Batman Birth of the Demon by Dennis O'Neil is not in this list yet. :-)


message 9: by Sam (new)

Sam Quixote Why the hell is Percy Jackson #205 on this list?


message 10: by Wirotomo (new)

Wirotomo Nofamilyname Yeah hahaha
One of the voters: Ekta, chose Generation V (American Vampire #1) and Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson #1) on no.1 and 5 of his/her list, that makes the books on no. 189 and 205 on this list.

I think i can delete those books from this list, because those books are not about Batman.


message 11: by Ash (new)

Ash why is Superman (#23) on this list?


message 12: by Lily (new)

Lily  Lu A few of these titles seem like filler titles. How does the TV series notes qualify as a best of???
