"I remember one time I asked my father why. What made Gotham so special? And my father, he looked down at me, and he said… "…some places just have a hunger about them, son. And you either feed them what they want… or you stay far, far away."

for me, acting is more about self-exploration. I’ve learned a lot about myself in order to learn about the craft. I’ve always been very big on self-exploration & answering my own questions.
Hello yes of course I could help you out. The first Batman comic I ever read was The Killing Joke, since it’s sort of a one shot, canon, and it’s one of the best ever written Batman comics, although I admit to reading it for The Joker and not Batman hehe.
Maybe you could try out reading “Batman: Year One” for an origin story. If we’re going chronologically though, after I read The Killing Joke, I read Batman: A Death in the Family.
After that you can go with Batman: A Lonely Place of Dying, which introduces Tim Drake, if I’m correct.
I’ve read several Batman comics from the 90s, and I get confused when it comes to timelines lol. I think I jumped into No Man’s Land. Now, that is one huge event, and I read it in volumes, there are 5 of those. And in here I also recommend you read Batman: Harley Quinn.
Then I absolutely recommend Batman: Hush, and afterwards, Batman: Under the Red Hood.
Around here, there’s a story that started with Detective Comics #790, which is called “War Drums”, which I’ve also read, mainly because of Stephanie Brown. I knew she was like the main catalyst in War Games, but War Drums comes first, so I’d say you read Drums first, then War Games, and then War Crimes. Now, this one, starting on Games, becomes a huge crossover of several issues, so it might be a bit complicated, but if you’ve perseverance when looking for stories you’ll be alright.
Then, I thought I’d read Batman: R.I.P., but I realized that I had to read some other stories first. So I went with Batman: Batman and Son. Then Batman: The Black Glove, Then R.I.P., and then (I’m not entirely sure) Last Rites is the one that comes next. Now here is where it gets a bit confusing, because R.I.P. is connected to Final Crisis. Once you get to this point, and if you decide you want to get into that huge mess, I can help you out a bit, I’ve actually thought of re-reading several of the “crisis” series, since when I read them before I had less knowledge of the DC Universe than I do now, so I sort of want to re-read it now and try to understand better.
Then, since the bat was apparently dead, he decided to fuck that shit and come the fuck back, in The Return of Bruce Wayne, which shows you the huge ass journey dear ol’ Brucie had to do to get back to the main DC universe.
I am sure I’ve missed several stories, and if anyone would like to correct me or put another story you’d recommend, you’re free to do so. I didn’t read my stories chronologically, I jumped right onto everything lol. I can’t remember other stories, time line speaking, so I guess after all that comes Flashpoint and the new 52.
Other great Batman stories I’d recommend you read are:
I have other stories to recommend, favorites and all, but they’re mainly Joker centered so yeah. Also, I started with The Killing Joke, but way back there are good stories too, but I am not confident on giving you advice with those because I get too confused, Five Way Revenge, however, marked the so-called “return” of The Joker, as the true homicidal maniac he is, so I also recommend it.
I am a mess when it comes to reading orders lol, so I’m sorry if this wasn’t of much help, but I hope it was anon.
