    I'm planning on picking up http://www.dccomics.com/graphic-nove...-1-new-edition (Knightfall Vol1. New Edition) when it's out next week.

    But while looking at some comments on the collection, some people seem to be pointing out some missing issues? Are those missing issues important ones, or will I be ok picking up this edition, or should I look for the old one?

    Awesome, Thanks. That's a great place to start now.
    Kudos on a good Thread, this is my new go to place for info based on the fact that none of my mates know anything about Batman!

    How's "War Games"?

    My buddy asked me if I wanted to read it. He's got the 3 trades from the library.

    There was a thread about it not long ago; you may want to look for it.

    It tends to be the target of a lot of fan-hate, some justified and some not IMO. In a nutshell, Stephanie Brown and Leslie Thompkins are written completely out of character and Stephanie is sadistically tortured. I make no defense for these things. But I found the actual storyline quite engaging. Your mileage may vary.

    If you can read it for free, sure. Don't pay for it.
    I would like to say for the record that this is the FIRST TIME I've withheld dong when someone was so desperately asking for some.

    I've updated the first page to include Owls in May and also the Top 50 a little - with the new Demon Trilogy out Birth of the Demon and Son of the Demon have been combined into one entry and moved up with their scores added. This also opens a new spot at the very bottom for...Batman VS Predator!

    Those missing issues were noticed by posters here when the solicit was first released, and it's probably just a typo. DC publishes wrong solicit information once in a while and those are key issues, would make no sense at all to skip them. We'll know for certain next week but I'd say the new edition will be fine

    The Stephanie stuff is kinda disgusting and depressing, but it still the best plotline of the event. The basis of War Games was to kill her off and word is that is only because DC was killing all of Chuck Dixon's characters.

    What are those missing issues? So I know what to look for when I am in the store this Wednesday?

    they're apparently Detective 661-666 but whether they're actually missing is still not certain. If your shop wraps the trade I'd definetly be asking to open and have a look inside.

    Thanks, will make sure to look for those issues to be included in the trade as well.

    Update: Picked up the collection today, and it does contain Detective Comics #659-666

    My friend got into Batman about a year and a half ago, so doesn't just want the 'essentials' list. He asked me if I could compile a chunky list of the essentials, plus others for people who have already read Year One etc al, some of the supposed lesser books, all in chronological order. I've been re-reading the entire saga, and so made a decent/chunky sized list with all the main books, and others I personally think he should read. So this list is for people properly trying to get into the batman universe (I also included Year Ones for Nightwing, Robin and Batgirl for that reason) and not just read the 'Big Ones'. Some one-shots, or ones that don't fit in continuity, may still be included in a rough space were I'd recommend.

    I decided to post it here in case it's incorrect and you guys can help me out, and because it might help others looking on this thread.


    Legend:
    CAPITALS and/or bold = Main Book that you really, definitely should read.
    Not in Capitals = Not essential, but if you are really serious about getting into Batman not just casually, I'd still read.
    Not in Capitals, but in italics: Ditto above, but probably a little bit more important (or at least more Known) than those with neither capitals or italics.
    s p a c e d o u t l e t t e r s = DC 'Event' (Isn't just Batman, but should still be read; read either 1. just Batman and other characters you like/are trying to follow, or 2. the whole thing if you want. A better understanding will be gained from no. 2)
    ----- = Start of Morrisons run/area (Not all books after this point are by Morrison, or part of his run, but still tie into his story, or at least the Batman mythos)
    Navy Blue = The main books from Morrisons main run (from 06-now)
