New 52 Batman Reading Order (2011 to 2015) Following the events of Flashpoint , the DC Universe rebooted as the New 52. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo took over creative duties on DC’s Batman , which quickly became the critically-acclaimed flagship Bat-book for the New 52. Snyder and Capullo books are marked below like so . Note that if you want everything , including all the Bat-family books and to see how Batman plays in relation to the DC Universe at large, you can check out the Comic Book Herald New 52 Reading Order ! Batman, Vol. 4: Zero Year – Secret City Collects: Batman #21-24 You have two options with New 52 Batman. You can either start with the first issue and “The Court of the Owls” story arc, or you can start with “Zero Year,” which is a variation on the classic early days of Batman as told in Year One . I’ve tried it both ways, and I actually prefer “Zero Year” first, but your mileage may vary. DC Comics: Zero Year

Collects: Batman #24-25, Detective Comics #25, Batgirl #25, Batwing #25, Batwoman #25, Birds of Prey #25, Catwoman #25, The Flash #25, Green Arrow #25, Green Lantern Corps #25, Nightwing #25, Red Hood and The Outlaws #25 and Action Comics #25 The companion Zero Year collection expands to a bunch of other DCU heroes, some closely tied to the Bat Family, and some closely tied to Bats’ Justice League membership. This will not advance the Batman Zero Year story much, but will provide some New 52 companion issues. Batman, Vol, 5: Zero Year – Dark City Collects: Batman #25 to #27, #29 to #33 Batman, Vol. 1: The Court of Owls Collects: Batman #1-7 Batman: The Night of the Owls Collects: Batman #8-9, Batman Annual #1, Detective Comics #9, Batman: The Dark Knight #9, Batwing #9, Batman and Robin #9, Red Hood and the Outlaws #9, Birds of Prey #9, Batgirl #9, Nightwing #8-9, and All-Star Western #9 Batman, Vol. 2: The City of Owls Collects: Batman #8–12, and Batman Annual #1 Detective Comics: Faces of Death Collects: Detective Comics #1 to #7 Batman, Incorporated, Vol. 1: Demon Star Collects: Batman, Incorporated #0-6 For all intents and purposes, Grant Morrison’s extended run on Batman continues with the New 52 Batman, Inc. The series essentially continues operating as if the New 52 never happened, which is totally cool if you enjoyed Batman, Inc. to begin with.
