What you need to read about Batman?
Si vous êtes fan de Batman au cinéma ou en dessin animé, que vous voulez tester les comics mais ne savez pas par où commencer voici,à mon avis, les meilleurs story arc de Batman. Si vous n’aimez pas les histoires, c’est simple, vous n’aimerez jamais les comics!:-)
ps: Je suis d’accord que “The Killing Joke" est une histoire clé dans la mythologie de Batman. Ceci étant dit ce n’est pas une de mes préférés, si je devais faire un top 5. Je vous invite tous à découvrir “Gates of Gotham” parce que c’est pas un arc connu. C’est une grande histoire de la fondation de Gotham City qui inclue les familles influantes comme les familles Wayne, Cobblepott, etc. Cette histoire est vraiment excellente et indispensable!
You’re a fan of Batman from the movies or/and from the animated series and you want to try the comics but you don’t know where to start. Here, in my opinion, all the best stories of Batman. If you don’t like these issues, that’s simple, you will never love the comics! :-)
PS: On my photos you can see the french edition of all these comics, So if some covers are slightly different from what you find in your comicshop this is normal. ^ ^
PS2: Unpopular opinion.^^ While I agree that “The Killing Joke” is a key story in the mythology of Batman, this is not one of my favorite if I had to make a top 5. I invite you all to discover “Gates of Gotham” because is not a famous story arc. This is a great story about the founding of Gotham City including influantes families such the Wayne, the Cobblepott, etc. This story is really excellent and essential!

BATMAN/HELLBOY/STARMAN (Dark Horse Comics/DC Comics)
Story by James Robinson // Art by Mike Mgnola .
Voilà un comics que j’ai acheté en 1999. C’était la première fois que je lisais un comics avec Hellboy. Ce one-shot raconte l’association entre Batman Hellboy et Starman qui luttent contre un groupuscule de néo-nazi qui veut réveiller un ancien démon. Pour cela ils ont capturé Ted Knight, le père de Jack Knight, le nouveau Starman). Je trouve que c’est une histoire sympathique mais pas exceptionnelle. La première fois que je l’avais lu j’avais détesté les dessins. Aujourd’hui je suis habitué au style de Mike Mignola et j’ai changé d’avis sur son art!:-) Je n’ai jamais lu d’autre comics avec le personnage de Starman.
This is a comicbook that I bought in 1999. It was the first time I read a comic with Hellboy. This one-shot tells the association between Batman, Hellboy and Starman fighting against a small group of neo-Nazi who wants to wake up an ancient demon. The Neo-Nazi group caught Ted Knight, the father of Jack Knight, the new Starman. I think it’s a nice story but not exceptional. The first time I read it I hated the drawings. Today I’m used to the graphic style of Mike Mignola and I’ve changed my mind about his art :-) I never read other comics with the character of Starman.
I love this page!^^:
BATMAN/ALIENS by Ron Marz & Bernie Wrighton
Je viens de finir de lire Batman/Aliens et c’était pas mal. En fait je l’ai vu une seul fois à la fin des années 90 et je trouve que ça a bien vieilli.Si vous ne l’avez pas lu je vous le conseil. Que vous soyez fan de Batman ou de Alien, le mélange s’est bien effectué.
I just finished reading “Batman/Aliens” and it was not bad. In fact, I had read it once in the late 90s and I think it’s always good .If you have not read this crossover I recommend it. Whether you’re a fan of both universe, Batman or Alien, the mixture is perfect.
