The Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told

    (DC, 1989)
™ and © DC Comics

With Batman Begins due in theaters soon, the time has come for fans to revisit classic stories from Batman’s 66-year history. This volume collects 12 stories: from Detective Comics #33, #439, and #574, Batman #5, #62, #156, #250 and #251, DC Special Series #15 and #21 (it’s good to see these again), Legends of the Dark Knight #79; and Batman: Gotham Knights #32. These stories represent the definitive storylines and notable appearances of the most deadly Batman villains. Some of the best and brightest DC creators are represented.

With different art styles and interpretations—from Frank Miller, Neal Adams, and Marshall Rogers to numerous Bob Kane ghosts (Sheldon Moldoff, Dick Sprang, et al.)—the visual evolution of Batman is enjoyable. From simple art renderings to the later smooth stylings, the essence of Batman is clear: Fear me. I am a creature of the night. I am vengeance. This collection does contain the Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told. For now.
