We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:Batman Family: Legends of the Dead Earth.
Collecting 7 Issues:
  • Batman Annual #20.
  • Detective Annual #9.
  • Batman: LDK Annual #6.
  • B: Shadow of the Bat Annual #4.
  • Robin Annual #5.
  • Catwoman Annual #3.
  • Azrael Annual #2.
Covers: (click to enlarge)
TPB Cover: Batman: LDK Annual #6
TPB Cover: Batman: LDK Annual #6

Legends of the Dead Earth was the theme of the 1996 DC Annuals. As far as I can tell, these annuals were basically a unified Elseworlds theme, but they didn't carry the Elseworlds logo (probably because DC did Elseworlds annuals in 1994, and didn't want to appear to be repeating themselves). A collection should probably have the Elseworlds logo on it though, because these stories are clearly not in DCU continuity.

For the cover, I'd go with LDK Annual #6, because the Bat-chick with the huge axe stands out every time I look at this grouping. However, I could see where DC might go with something more recognizable as Batman, so maybe Detective Annual #9, or Shadow of the Bat Annual #4.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
