Also, about the Batman Incorporated suggested in the first page of this thread, which one should I read? The new one released last May 2012? Or the old ones?
Long Halloween can't help with I don't even actually remember how or if the end makes sense. Like Hush the mystery is just their to drive a story with multiple guest appearances, it's not all that important or even well executed.

Wow. This list helped me out a lot. I prefer reading trades in order, but I agree, you can pretty much pick up any batman trade and not be to confused about anything, and definitely able to enjoy it.
I've just completed all of the Morrison deluxe editions (about to order Inc, vol 1), and I'm beginning to wonder what the chances are of Morrison's other Bat books (RoBW and Time and the Batman) or the other parts of the collection (Bruce Wayne: The Road Home) into other collected editions. It seems like a helluva fun, and it was before I was into the books.
Any thoughts around here on that? Should I try to pick up those trades as they are or wait on something later on?
help me!!! sorry i am new here.
anyone had this problem with amazon.co.uk?
preordered the batman and son/black glove hardcover as it was known in feb. somewhere along the way it changed its title and a new listing appeared on amazon.
my old listing became currently unavailable. i kept getting update emails until 2 weeks ago. never got my book. as the current one is now out of stock at the moment.
how can i trust amazon pre orders??
the invisibles omnibus and simonsons alien art edition both have 2 listings. how can we know if one of these dies? i could buy the cheaper one then find they make that unavailable. for all i know amazon may create another listing so they dont have to honor a low preorder price my just making the listing i order unavailable. would be interested to hear if others have had similar problems. thanks.
Hi there. Buying DC collections can be very confusing on Amazon because they'll nearly always have two listings for each new release - one for DC's printing directly and one for Titan, who import and sell the books on DC's behalf. The books are identical other than the Titan copies will have a sticker over the barcode.
Long story short mate, this is the edition you're looking for - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Batman-The-B...1582794&sr=8-2
Now, I know it SAYS paperback in the listing, but trust me, this edition has NOT been released in paperback. Jesus, I can't believe it's selling for less than £13. Fantastic value for a truly gorgeous collection.
Now, as regards trusting Amazon pre-orders, you just kinda have to be careful with DC stuff because they're constantly removing and relisting upcoming DC trades. Having said that, I've read in many places that DC is no longer using Titan for distribution from later this year onwards, so with upcoming releases they may not be a problem. If you're still worried about it, pre-order both. You'll only be charged for whichever ships anyway and you can cancel the other.
It's not so they don't have to honour low pre-order prices. Amazon isn't as duplicitous as that- they'll straight up cancel your order and email you to let you know. They did this for me when I ordered Silent Running for £4 before its release on Blu-Ray. Creating a separate listing is way too much trouble for something like that.
are you sure?? the details still list the 170 odd pages though. ordered anyway.
and what are the marketplace sellers selling then? the old edition of black glove?
Are they re-releasing Batman: Arkham Asylum in HC format soon?
They'll only be selling the old edition if it's on the page with that ISBN. Otherwise it'd be illegal. The page counts for US comics on Amazon are rarely accurate. Sure let us know how it turned out when it arrived.
No word on an HC version of Arkham Asylum yet but surely it's inevitable.
