I've read a number of Batman books like Dark Knight Returns, Long Halloween (one of my favs), etc. I've always heard of Batman Inc., and based on the cover it looks like a fun read!
I've read parts of Final Crisis, never finished it. Should I continue on? Does it affect later stories or is it something I can skip?
Just a simple question. I am working my way through the Batman and Batgirl back-issues and have just got up to the Night of the Owls. Would this be a good opportunity to check out all the titles that cross-over here to get an idea of the characters and writing-style of their respective titles? If so, are any particularly bad examples of what their series is like and should not be taken as a guide?
Shall I get the Long Halloween or the Killing Joke? Decisions, decisions...
I say go for the Long Halloween but I also echo that that you should get both. :)
at the risk of sounding stupid if i was to buy the knightfall the collected edition 634 pages edition would i need to buy the original set.i am a little confused as for eg the 2nd edition is called who rules the night 234 pages as the collected edition is knightfall knightquest 634 pages.part one broken bat 234 pages and part one new edition is called knightfall.hope i explained myself,i suppose what im asking is if i buy the 600 page versions do i need the 200 page versions.im trying to read the whole set in chronological order
thanks in advance
The new volume 2 collects Jean Paul Valley's Knightquest Arc (The Crusade), but omits Bruce's (The Search).
Volume 3 collects Knightsend and Prodigal.
So there's still some gaps in the story, but not like you'd get from the original three trades.

Buy the New Editions only. They collect more of the original issues than the first series of collections did. They look like this
New member, found this list brilliant. Now know how to fill gaps in my Batman reading
