- I personally hate Grant Morrison with a passion however, i will say that i think R.I.P. was a pretty good story aside from it being incredibly convoluted(like most of Morrison's work), and a couple other things.

reading at least once

* - an understanding of Final Crisis and the tie-ins to that would certainly help, and some people

would argue are relevant, but I only wanted to include Batman and Batfamily stuff on this list

I recommend reading Battle for the Cowl, it's one of my favorite storylines of recent years
