Whenever someone asks this question the first two books that come to mind are The Cult and Year 100. There are a lot though, I guess it just depends on your definition of underrated.


I've read the cult but I might pick year 100 thanks

Seconded! And Ed Brubaker's run that came after Selina's Big Score was equally amazing. :catwoman:

There are so many to choose from, but I think I'd start with these first:
- Batman: Venom
- Batman: Holy Terror (Elseworlds)
- Batman and the Monster Men
- Batman and the Mad Monk
- Batman: Death in the Maidens
- Batman: In the Seventies (includes stories such as: "Vow from the Grave", "Night of the Reaper", and "There is no Hope in Crime Alley")
- Batman: War on Crime

A few others that I would recommend (though they are pretty hard to find, and not all have been collected in trades), are:

- Batman: Dead Reckoning (Detective Comics 777-782)
- Mike W. Barr and Alan Davis' run on Batman ("Fear for Sale", especially; stay the hell away from "Batman: Year Two", though)
- Batman: Gotham Knights (this series--which was basically the Bat-Family "team book" at that time--contains quite a few gems, most notably the adoption of Dick Grayson and the 24/7 issue) - all of the Gotham Knights issues are available on comixology, so that are a bit easier to find compared to the others.

Thanks I'll probably try and get dead reckoning

I'd like to add Broken City to those lists of recommendations. Came out around the same time as Hush but shares no connections to it whatsoever. In terms of narrative quality too it completely eclipses it - a forgotten classic from Azzarello.

I recommend the the ongoing from the early 2000's Empire to any Star Wars fans. it fills in some gaps and fleshes out the imperials and rebels.

I remember Broken City. Yeah, its pretty good. Has a pretty interesting take on Killer Croc.

Did you read all of Grant Morrisons run? New Maps of Hell by Warren Ellis was also pretty good. Then there is New Frontier and Justice by Alex Ross. Kingdom Come is also a classic, as is the Nail and Another Nail when you like Elseworld stuff.


Don´t know about Legends of the Dark Knight, but Earth One was about as good as the first story. Its take on the Riddler wasn´t bad. If you like the first one you´ll enjoy it.

Has anyone read TDKR 3, is it any good? Also is Injustice Ground Zeros worth getting for the whole injustice story arc?
