Hey guys! So according to Holiday Insights, today is Bat Appreciation Day. Now, they definitely meant it as a day to appreciate boring old, regular bats. BUT as soon as I saw it, I immediately thought of Batman (I mean, what else would I think about?). So I thought it’d be fun to share some of my favorite Batman comics/story lines/etc. with you. Definitely know that this list is NOT meant to represent ALL of the best Batman comics out there, because there are a ton of Batman comics. These are just 8 of my favorite Batman comics and graphic novels.

I’ve actually never read a Batman comic even though he is my favorite superhero. I was addicted to the cartoon as a kid and he’s remained my favorite superhero for my entire life. I love that he’s just a human but he’s such a badass that he contend with the superheroes/villains just as well!
I’ll definitely have to check out some of these comics out, thanks for sharing!
I definitely think you’d like some of these comics, B. Arkham Asylum is nuts. It makes you kind of feel like you’re going crazy with the characters as you read. And Dave McKean’s art is fantastic.
I love The Killing Joke and The Long Halloween! I have a Harley Quinn weakness though so Mad Love is my ultimate favourite though.
That’s a good one too! I have a love/hate relationship with Harley Quinn. Haha.
Awww ye! Batman all day, every day! 😛 Nice list, those are definitely volumes that people should check out. I haven’t read both Batman & Robin series yet (but I sure as hell plan to!). Can’t wait to check them out. And Happy Bat Appreciation Day to you too!
I have a /slight/ obsession with Robin, especially Damian Wayne, so I read every single thing he’s in. Lol!
