Sooo… I’m bad at remembering things. First I forgot captain boomerang on the rouges poll, now I’ve forgotten iconic Batman storylines! Well this is the part 2. Your welcome. This time I’ll go for year one. Such a good story that reimagines the Batman origin!
Year One. It’s a masterpiece what can I say? It mastered the tone of Batman and is just told brilliantly.
In all honesty I have yet to read them all, but I absolutely love Death of the Family.
Great stories, but I had to go with Year One.
Another great poll.
@DefinitlyNOTJackRyder can you do one for Superman?
I love polls like this.
I think i have something in mind.
Death of the Family is the best. The perfect re-examination of Batman/Jokers relationship and boosted by great art. However, I would consider The Black Mirror to be the best Batman story because of the feeling of darkness within the book and the duel narrative of Dick and Gordon.
Year one is a nigh flawless Batman story.
TDKR is an excellent elseworlds adventure.
Death in the Family is a very good Batman story which had an incredibly influential effect.
Death of the Family was a good story with no real lasting effects.
Batman and Son is a fine story with extremely important effects.
Contagion was a pretty good story which explored how Batman would handle a disease rather than a criminal mastermind.
Legacy was fine but didn’t really do anything special. Rematch with Bane. Batman wins. Nothing else of much consequence happens in that book.
I know it’s going to come down between the Frank Miller stories (both of which I enjoy, but neither of which I love), yet Grant Morrison’s ninja Man-Bats win out for me.
Batman: Year One for the win!
My favorite comic’s little brother (in multiple ways).
I haven’t heard of Contagion or Legacy. Do I still get to vote? I went with Year One.
Contagion is where a deadly disease plagues Gotham, challenging Batman to stop an enemy that he can’t see. Legacy is a sequel of sorts where bane makes a return with ra’s al Ghul and Talia al Ghul. They’re both pretty decent, so I’d you have the chance I’d check them out.
I meant to vote Death of the Family. Can’t change it. I’m Black Mirror for Batman & Death for Favorite Joker storyline.
I just got to Grant Morrisons run in my Batman read. Read that encounter the other day
Good to see you back in the DCU @Casey19652!
