Batman: The Rebirth

Its ok, I want to collect these and read them at the same time. I’ll take a look at flash later on.
I bought a couple different graphic novels not related to DC Comics.


Its not that good

I agree about Rebirth Batman not being the best

In the first issue
He doesn’t act like the Dark Knight

He is more the Batman in the Justice League, with Impossible stunts and gadgets

He worries about his legacy
Although he has saved Gotham thousands of times
And as a Justice League
The world hundreds of time

And he has to be saved

Batman New 52 has a much better first arc

Other people really like King’s work.

To me

Some arcs other than the first are good

In others
It is hard to tell
What is real
What is a hallucination

Read it in the library
Before spending money on this

@TurokSonOfStone1950 @Clonegeek18
any recommendations to any new rebirth characters I should read about?
I don’t want to read a old storyline if its already finished.
I’ll start with the Joker because Green Lantern looks like a little kid.

Because you mentioned Green Lantern as a little kid

You are talking about
The 2021 reboot titles

These are the ones I liked

Joker 2021 1
This primarily a Jim Gordon story
It is about the Joker
But often there are not many pages where he appears

Good Titles

Wonder Woman 2016 770
Catwoman 2018 25
Swamp Thing 2021 1
Harley Quinn 2021 1

The early issues of below titles
That are in our library
Aren’t great

But recent issues are great

The Flash 2016 768
Nightwing 2016 78

Ill start with the flash first, then batman rebirth, then wonder woman. I’m already reading batman white knight so I don’t wanna read addon to too many batman.

Well, I personally adore all of the Rebirth series.
The stories, the amazing art and suits.


I have yet to finish the I Am Gotham graphic novel (or Batman Rebirth volume 1 as I call it). Personally… I felt kinda lost in terms of where his relationship with Selina stood at the beginning of this series, but maybe it was because I hadn’t read anything prior to this in the continuity of Rebirth and New 52. I hope you like it, as it helped me finally figure out who Gotham Girl was since I read the Wedding story before starting this one.

I myself need to reread this and eventually finish it.

I personally really love Rebirth Batman by Tom King, but it does take a while for me to get really into it - my first favorite issue in the run is #9, the start of the second arc. But I hope you enjoy it!


Rebirth has been over for a while

101 is new reboot

I would strongly disagree that issue #101 is a reboot of any kind. Tynion just continued with the story he was telling.

The real “new” run starts with issue #118, by Josh Williamson - it does continue with the continuity that Tynion set up, but is clearly telling a new story.

i want to be invested in the characters so ill read a little more.

Its Batman, its pretty straight foward. Besides the James Tyion run is drasticaly different then the Tom King run.

The only thing anybody needs to know is that Batman and Catwoman were engaged.

Some of those issues were fun, like with Talia al Ghul (Damien’s Mother ) and a double date with Lois and Clark

That ended with issue 50.

Then Carwoman 1 started.

In many issues of King, I was unsure what was hallucinations and what was ‘reality’.

None of King’s issues need to have been read to understand Tynion.
