Reread Batman:Black & White 1-4. Most anthologies are uneven by their nature, but the quality here is generally quite high.
Highlights include "Heroes" by Archie Goodwin and Gary Gianni, Toth's cover to issue 4, and "Good Evening, Midnight" by Klaus Jansen.
If anyone wants to argue Batman is over exposed I won't disagree. But the character does seem to lend itself well to the short form.

This was a fantastic mini. I got issues 1-3 signed by the cover artists (Jim Lee, BWS, and Frank Miller), and #4 signed by Gari Gianni as Toth was otherwise unavailable. This was so popular they made a vol 2 and a Batman ongoing, Gotham Knights I think, had b&w backups for a while. The Bill Sienkiewicz story is fantastic. The pinups on the inside covers are to die for. Just finding the HC with the tip-in plate by Steranko isn't easy.

I always enjoyed the look of Morbius. I have the issue of his first ever solo book stuff from Adventure Into Fear but have never read much more than that (and his appearances in ASM and PPTSS). I wish they could have done more with him but he is pretty one dimensional. I still think he looks cool and every cover app with him on it seems to appeal to me (PPTSS #8 and I believe #38 were great covers, as was ASM #101)
