The Batman is second only to Superman in major, mainstream detective comic longevity. Created by Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger in 1939 and re-invented in full Dark Knight form by Frank Miller in the 1980s, he's one of the most popular DC superheroes, and not coincidentally one of the most human.

There have been a ton of incredible Batman stories over the years, by an incredible range of creators. Sadly, there's not much available in iBooks yet (bad DC!) but you can get some of them, including more recent sorks, via the Comics app, or dedicated DC Comics app in the App Store. The app itself is free, and there are free comics available, but most need to be purchased separately within the app.

You can also pick up a lot of the collected print editions from Amazon.


Christopher Nolan isn't the first director to bring the Batman to film. Tim Burton and... other, lesser director, had a turn over a decade ago, and there have been a ton of truly fantastic animated TV shows and movies over the years since. (Seriously, some of the animated films and shows are far, far better than the live action movies.)

  • " It's got that Gameloft fighting system, with tons of moves and effects" I think Gameloft open world fighting systems are mostly known for their one-button mash mechanics with a good dose of complementary auto-targeting, so let's hope it offers anything but the traditional Gameloft mechanics ;-)
  • Hey Rene
    Your link that says marvel comics should be DC Comics as Batman is a DC hero. Other than that nice article.
  • After getting the spiderman game i can't see wasting money on this one. The fighting mechanics is dreadful.
