Would anyone recommend Batman and the Outsiders by Chuck Dixon & eventually Tomasi? I'm a fan of Tomasi's current Batman and Robin and was looking for a team book. How was this run?

Year one was fun, but did not blow me out of the water.
Awesome sticky! Thanks for the effert!
Can someone tell me what the timeline for the "millerverse"* looks like?
I don't think this question deserves its own thread, so I just post this here.
*Millerverse consists of Year One, Dark Knight Returns, Dark Knight Strikes Again, All-Star Batman, Spawn/Batman.
Not written by Miller, small appearances: Countdown: Arena #1 and Superman and Batman: World's Funnest.
This is a "looking for this comic" type question.
I remember, as a kid in the '90s, having a Batman book that took place in the far future. A dystopian type future. From what I remember, there wasn't actually a whole lot of Batman in it. I mostly remember some citizens, hiding from their oppressors or something, talking about Batman and what he meant and if there was still a Batman. They were thinking of him as a savior type figure. I remember these people got a quick glimpse of Batman. He was flying in an Iron Man type Batsuit. They were higher up then him, though, so you saw him from above. I think there was a scene later that maybe implied this could be the original Batman, somehow preserved. But, I also seem to remember that it wasn't Bruce Wayne, so it might have just been the characters, and not the reader, that didn't know if he was the original. I also seem to remember there being a black girl who might have been Robin, or a Robin type character. Some kind of ally. She had short hair? Maybe it was told from her perspective? Maybe I'm making that part up? I'm not sure.
Really, I'm just curious to find out where I remember this from. I obviously don't remember a lot, so certain details might be wrong. If anyone knows anything similar, though, I appreciate it.
I'm having trouble with continuity. I recently finished The Black Mirror (HC). The book starts with 'The story so far'. So what series/book comes before The Black Mirror?
I'm also looking for collected volumes of Batman and Robin (volume 2 / new 52), but is there one already? What's the title?
The post 52 B&R trade is Born to Kill. ( There's a schedule of all new52 trades in the first post)
Ginkasa your description feels maddeningly familiar, racking my brain but can't remember where from
Thanks for the feedback drockw

That list of yours is insane. Just what I was looking for. Awesome!
Am I correct that when getting the volume City of Owls (when it is released), I still miss out on 3 issues of Batman?

I believe the last Batman I read was Batman, Inc #1 and I believe maybe Batman and Robin #17 or something close to that (I don't remember the time frame) Before that I had read everything from there back to RIP/Final Crisis.
What are the titles out at the moment and what is must-read? I hear Synder & Capullo's run is good. Will I need to read to go back and start from Inc and how does the current line tie in with the other titles out?
Thanks a lot in advance guys :)
I've read Batman #1-5 (collected in The Court of Owls HC) and that one is insane. One of the best 'regular' comic books I've read.
Got another question myself as well:
I just ordered Batman RIP and Final Crisis. With Flashpoint and the start of Batman in DCnU, is there anything I'm missing in between?
