Heya everyone,

With this new 52, I thought it was probably a good time to get my Batman on. There seem like an awful lot of Batman titles though. Do I have to read them all to get the gist of what's going on, or is it possible to stick with say Batman: The Dark Knight, cause that looks pretty cool.

Cheers all!

The main title is Scott Snyder's Batman. If there is one book in the entire DC new 52 that you must read, it is this.

Batman: The Dark Knight is a pale second.

Awesome, thanks for the reply 600. I will definitely have a read. I'll stretch out to 2 batman titles I guess :)

I'd disagree that it's the best title in the Nu52, but I'll agree that Batman is the best Batman title right now. (Detective Comics is a close second, and I'm also enjoying Batwing a surprising amount...)

:) Yes dear Shinrai, obviously that is my opinion. Which DCnU book is your favorite?

If I had to pick, personally, I'd say probably Animal Man.

This thread wasn't meant to be so much about what titles are worth reading, but more so about the interconectedness of the titles, and whether it was viable to stick to one(at max two) batman titles without large storylines gaps from interweaving storylines.

We often go off topic, though that is, strictly speaking, ...ahem... not in keeping with the rules. :blush:

But we don't mind having a chat wherever possible!!! :laugh:

I know 600 and believe me, I'm all for derailing topics and having a great chat! My last post was just my attempt at subtly reminding everyone of the original question, to see if I could get an answer to it... Still waiting btw :P

600 did sort of answer your question, he just wasn't being explicit about it so let me do that; there's no reason you have to read ALL the Batman books, they're doing different arcs and you can keep up just fine.

This is true of EVERYTHING in the Nu52 as it stands right now. You don't have to read all the Green Lantern books, all the Superman books, etc. Aside from the occasional crossover they're all flying solo.
