Chris and Andy tackle one of the hardest topics in comic book lore… just what are the best Batman collected editions of all time? It’s not just what to decide it’s how to rank them. To make things easy the guys picked four obvious books to start:

  • Batman: Year One by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli
  • The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson
  • Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland
  • Batman: The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb and Time Sale
  • Then the guys go back and forth on some essential books for you to read and own. Andy sticks to the comic books while Chris delves into a few history books and even the comic strips.

  • Batman: Ego and Other Tales by Darwyn Cooke
  • Batman: From the 30’s to the 70’s
  • Batman: Hush by Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee
  • Batman: Son of the Demon by Mike W. Barr and Jerry Bingham
  • Batman: The Complete History by Les Daniels
  • Batman: The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo
  • Batman: The Silver Age Newspaper Comics Vol. 3: 1969-1972
  • Batman: Year 100 by Paul Pope
  • Batman: Year Two by Mike W. Barr and Paul Neary
  • Tales of the Batman by Tim Sale
  • The Encyclopedia of Comic Book Heroes Volume 1: Batman
  • “The Supergirl from Krypton" (Superman/Batman #8–13) by Michael Turner
  • There’s plenty of debate to go around that that will be discussed in the free and open CCL Slack Channel

    The Piketon Massacre

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
