Top 10 Favorite Comic Books (BATMAN STYLE) by ChildOfDumas Top 10 Favorite Comic Books (BATMAN STYLE) by ChildOfDumas
My exposure to comics is severely limited. I'm the first to admit it. As I was filling the meme, I realized most of my choices (eight of ten) were from the Bat family, so I scrapped the odd two out and just devoted the whole thing to Bats! Wall o' Text

1) Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth: One of the best the comic world has to offer. Amazing story with jaw dropping visuals. READ IT!

2) Batman: The Killing Joke: The birth of Oracle and the Joker at his finest.
"All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day."

3) Batman #497: Knightfall - The Broken Bat: The breaking of The Bat. 'Nuff said.

4) Batman #612: Hush: Bats versus Superman, an amazing fight. The best part is the explanation of why Superman, an alien with god powers, keeps losing to a mere mortal. Love it.

5) Batman No Man's Land TPB Vol. 5: Greg Land, Devin Grayson, Huntress as Batgirl and Cassandra Cain donning the cowl. Insert fangirl squeal here.

6) New 52 Batman: The Court of Owls Vol. 1: Unique, original, inspiring storytelling at its finest. Scott Snyder is amazing. I'm now scared of owls.

7) JLA Tower of Babel TPB: Bats manages to take out the entire JLA, including himself. The final moment of genius is Bats removing himself from the JLA just before they kick him. Love it.

8) Batman: A Death in the Family TPB: The Batman's greatest failure and a driving force of his character for decades.

9) Batgirl #1: My favorite comic book character ever gets her own book!

10) Batgirl #58: The moment of perfection for Cassandra Cain. Before #58, the artistic style assigned to her book didn't know how to handle her. James Jean handled the covers beautifully (still some of my favorite covers to date), but Ale Garza really gave the character the visuals she deserved. He should've been there from the start.

Bat-mania? Nothing wrong with that.
