I have already outed myself as a total geek and fanboy multiple times on this board, so what's the harm in this?
I'm on a Batman kick right now, which happens every once in a while and especially around the release of a movie or video game. I'm not a huge comic guy, as I don't like many superheroes beyond Batman and X-Men (Superman completely blows, as does Spiderman IMO), but I've been reading a few recently and am looking for further reading regarding the Dark Knight. Here's what I've read so far (and no, not all these are within the last few weeks. I don't quite have that much time on my hands).
The Dark Knight Returns (obligatory)
The Killing Joke (obligatory)
Batman & Son
The Return of Bruce Wayne
The Long Halloween
A Death in the Family
Batman & Robin Must Die
Thanks in advance. Also, feel free to list your favorites.
EDIT - poster SamIam would like to know which one he should start with to lose his Batman comic virginity. Thought this would also be an interesting discussion.
