I’ve been wanting to do this post for a while but procrastination won the battle. Anywho, I’m one big fan of comics, especially batman comics. I just this it’s brilliant! The characters, the villains, the plot everything about it is amazing. If you never read any batman comics, and would want to give it a go, this is the post for you. These are some of the comics with great stories.
First off, Batman Hush. The story and art are both wonderful.The story is written by Jeph Lobe, and penciled by Jim Lee (Spectacular artist btw) The story goes around this mysterious stalker who want’s to get batman, and he does so by utilizing a large number of batman villains. The first hush is the best in my opinion and well the rest of the hush series is meh but if you want to check them out they’re Batman Hush Returns, Batman the heart of hush .
Secondly and my favorite, All-Star Batman and Robin. A brilliant comics it talks about the story when the first Robin (Dick Grayson) joins the cap crusader. But this is brilliant the way Frank Miller portrayed batman is EPIC! and what better combination of writer and artist Jim Lee (also the artist of the first Hush) I just can’t wait for the second volume.
Thirdly, Batman: Year One. Yet another brilliant story by Frank Miller. Illustration was done by David Mazzucchelli. It talks about the first year Bruce Wayne put on the cape and how difficult it was at the beginning. Also the first year Jim Gordon came to Gotham city police. It’s nice to see how it all started.
Fourthly, Batman: The Killing Joke It’s written by Alan Moore, and drawn by Brian Bolland. The plot revolves around a psychological battle between Batman, and his old-time enemy the Joker. The joker tries to drive commissioner Gordon mad, to prove that even the best of people can go insane after having “One Bad Day”. I remember when I read this it was creaped me out that I understood the joker, and that he made a lot of sense.
Fifthly, Batman Arkham Asylum. It’s written by the brilliant Grant Morison, and illustrated by Dave McKean. What I can say about this comic, that it’s dark. It talks about the story of Arkham. The art is spectacular here.
I’ll stop here, but later I’ll provide you with the second batch of batman comics. I actually enjoyed writing this comics post will do more of them with different comics. Tell me what you this if you read any of these.
