    Verrrry nice job sir.

    I'm happy to say the Bat-books I own are pretty much in that order on my shelf.

    I've never read Snow or Prey (which I heard is actually out of print now) and I never got around to putting No Mans Land together (gonna wait for the new editions now tho').

    On a side note, Arkham Asylum: a Serious House on Serious Earth... I tend to believe that the events in that book were actually a dream (or nightmare as the case may be).

    There are clues scattered throughout the book which lead me to believe this is the case... or could be the case if the reader is so inclined.

    I seem to recall Morrison himself alluding to this when describing the purposeful malformation of Batman's character (and the villains) as neurotic, sexually repressed and ultimately quite weak... a typical scenario in the nightmare of a strong willed person no?

    As such it could really come anywhere in the list for me.

    Anyway I'm rambling... Nice list bro!

    @bob agent of agency x: no I don't have any of these except for batman year one. I just researched it. But I must say if this is what you need to read before reading issue 1 of the new 52. it would be near impossible.

    Very good work! Thak you!

    I'm trying to do a compilation with links to download the series.

    I'm not able to find 21. Batman Night Crisis. Wouldn't it be Batman Night Cries?

    And where it fits Batman, Inc.?

    --> Batman: Son Of The Demon was never intended to be in continuity at the time of publication. When Grant Morrison wrote Batman & Son there was much talk that he was bringing it into continuity, but he made several changes to the conception of the baby that made it impossible. Morrison stated numerous times that he wasn't bringing it into continuity, but rather using the concept for his own means. He has clarified this in a way that will take a little explaining because it crosses three totally seperate continuities.

    1986-2011: Damian is introduced and his origin is referenced numerous times but never explicitly shown.

    2011-Present: Batman Incorporated Vol 2 #2 clearly shows Damian to have been conceived at the very end of...

    Check out my blog! It contains every appearance of Batman (so I have managed to find at least) there are still some books that are missing that I still can't place. But I am working on it! (and I have incorporated some else-world tales that if they were in the timeline this is most likely where they would be)

    Batman's time-line = KABOOM.

    With the exception of titles like Batwoman and Batman Inc., New 52 Batman has rewritten pretty much everything that came before. But, as a time-line of the pre-52 Batman universe, this is a pretty complete list.

    @masahikotahara: You seem to be going insane over this and have missed my reply...

    Jason wore a different costume during his last few appearances in pre-flashpoint DCU. It was white and black, the helmet was more of a dome than a helm, and he wore a high collar black cape. It appeared along with his side-kick in Batman & Robin vol1 3-6. There is a later appearance in the series that may have better pics but i don't feel like looking for them.

    Also you could say that Tim wore a different variation of the Red Robin costume or Robin costume which was he Robin Costume plus the the Red Robin cowl/cape that he wore in the last few issues of the Robin series 181+ because he needed head protection and the red robin cowl just happened to be around at the time.

    I don't understand why Dark Knight Returns is not on this list. What am I missing?

    The fact that it's an Elseworlds tale and therefore hasn't ever been canon. It's a possible future/alternate history. Prior to Flashpoint in fact it took place on Earth-31.

    Very nice list though. I appreciate it, as I plan to start updating my Batman collection soon, and it'll be nice to go in some type of order. List also seems to include Morrisin's run, so that's two birds with one stone.

    The key for me is that it isn't crucial to read any of these in any order. Different earths, alternate realities, etc. He is still an iconic character that we call can look up to.

    Here is a question. How in the world is the order even decided? I am enjoying looking at all of these in this order but how in the world is it decided to put BATMAN & THE MONSTER MEN between CATWOMAN: HER SISTER'S KEEPER and BATMAN & THE MAD MONK?

    I'm not an expert on timeline/continuity but didn't new 52 change the timeline? Think Scott Synder mentioned something about Zero Year is pretty much a modernized and new 52 version of Year One.

    The people who wrote it, etc. Sometimes writers decide to set a story earlier in Batman's career, and many times will go as far as to say when the story's taking place.

    No one said it was crucial to read them in order. It's simply them put in Order for people's enjoyment.

    @masterofnone169: hi, I don't know if some else has spotted this or if it just the writing order, but Prey should go after Monster Men and before Mad Monk. The only reason I spotted this is because in Mad Monk he has his Bat Mobile and in Prey he is still constructing it. Enjoying the list lots :)

    Excuse me if this has already been said, but is there really any reason to read the pre-52 graphic novels? (besides for the fun of it) Almost any history marked in these pre-New 52 comics are retconned. Take a look at the new-52 Batman timeline, many trademark events have been retconned or revamped to death, like Knightfall, Zero Month, Infinite Crisis, Batman R.I.P./Bruce Wayne: Road Home. If you take a quick look, any history between Dick Grayson and Bruce is condensed into just two years, instead of 20-ish. Jason dies the same year he becomes robin. Barbara was paralyzed for only 2 years, while being Batgirl for about 1 year. Sure, go read these classic novels for the thrill of reliving the real Batman's world, not this new-52 crap. I personally only read the Killing Joke and the jack the ripper one. I liked the Spider-Man and Batman crossover as well. And I'm in the process of reading Generations, which is an elseworlds title, which shows the complete lives of Batman and Superman through generations of their family tree, starting with them and going to the future.

    Hello

    I am currently reading "Batman: Hush Returns" after having read "Batman: War Games" and I can tell that the former must be placed before the later.

    "Batman: Hush Returns" consists of 6 consecutive Books ("Pushback" 1 to 6) that happen before "Batman: War Games", plus one called "Job Termination" -which has an introduction mentioning that this particular book actions ocurred after "Batman: War Games".

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks.

    A few corrections and additions:

    0- The Man who falls (tell the tale of Batman's training, takes place before Year One)

    I think 29 is called A Lonely Place of Dying. Also you can add Batman Year Three between 28-29. Though the story tells tales in the past and in the present. The present time takes place in between Death in the Family and A Lonely Place of Dying, but the story in the past could be placed after Dark Victory even though DV is a soft retcon of Dick Grayson's origin which is told in Y3 in a flashback. This story also features the first official appearance of Tim Drake before he becomes Robin in A Lonely Place of Dying.

    In between Cataclysm (37) and No Man's Land (38), there's Aftershock and Road to No Man's Land

    War Crimes takes place directly after War Games since the last issue of War Games is also a prequel to War Crimes

    Long Shadows takes place before Batman vs Robin. It can also be considered part of the story called Batman Reborn

    Very nice thing you've done there.

    But to be exact, you're only listing stories from what wikipedia calls "the modern batman".

    You've also excluded stories from the magazin Robin and from Newspaper strips :

    presentation - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/30492.html

    1 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/32483.html

    2 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/32761.html

    3 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/33256.html

    4 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/33371.html

    5 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/34373.html

    6 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/34748.html

    7 - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/35065.html

    finaly - http://about-faces.dreamwidth.org/35177.html

    And to see if you're not missing any story or have the right order, I would recommande looking at the list that wikipedia has : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Batman_comics

    To fans of Batman, i would also recommand reading : BATMAN THE DAILIES 1943-1946. Some of the best stories I've read are in there. Because each strip has suspense making the reading very intense. It's also the first time you can see the batcave, and see alfred slim.

    Batman 408-409 is placed around the the Time as Nightwing Year One (both are story about Dick quitting Robin and Jason becoming Robin).

    The Killing Joke should take place directly before Death in the Family, because Barbara was still Batgirl in "the Diplomats Son" (according to Gotham Knigths 44-45).

    And i'm not shure if the Cult is canon or an elseworld story.

    @masterofnone169 this is a really great list. Is there somewhere I can find any updates you've made from suggestions or added in new trades in the last 10 months? This is very useful. Thanks!

    The above list is outdated and very misleading. There's no reason to read *every* story in this fashion and the idea of sticking to a chronological reading order is deluded. It also ignores Batman Family , OGN's and non-canon which is where you'll actually find the bulk of great Batman stories.

    @danongorf : No, the new 52 is suppose to be a reboot, so technically you don't need to ready anything. And this is not a complete list at all, someone made a real complete one with over 600+ titles to read :

    http://www.comicvine.com/profile/batshrine/blog/batman-tpb-complete-chronology/79247/

    But both those lists exclude out of continuity stories like the elseworld stories.
