Really? Tyler asked some advice and no one helps him? Foreshame! Well Tyler, I'll help you out IF you renounce your nitpicky hatred for the man of steel unless the new comic con footage blew you away with Goyer's and Nolan's awesome writing!!!
But now then, onto what I've read.
-the dark knight returns, I think everyone has read this and tell you it rocks.... Cept for smelly nick.
-Batman Year One, originally this was going to be begins but it never happened.
-The Dark Knight Strikes Again, if you view it how I'm told it's suppose to be a parody/satire on comics today then you may like it along with all star batman and robins as long as it view it like that.
-Batman: Red Rain/Batman: Vampires, it's an elseworld story with Batman alone dealing with Vampires. It's really good and I say check it out.
-Batman Beyond: now I this I think is in two or three volumes right now, one being hush and the other I believe is the industrial revolution but yeah I read the first one and I liked it and it's a great continuation of the original show,
And now for some various others I haven't read but you may like:
-Batman under the red hood,if you like the movie you may like it.
-Batman: Black and white, an anthology series with batman that has various writers and artists some of those are Dennis O' Neil, Paul Dini, and Bruce Timm
-Batman: Birth of the demon, this one I've been meaning to read as it collects the first appearance of my favorite Batman Villain Ra's Al Ghul.
-The various anthology series collecting various batman villain stories, such as Batman vs Two face, Joker: Greatest stories ever told, and this scarecrow one. There's probably a lot more of them, so go find them and check them out.
And IGN should help you out(for once) with their list of titles that might help you out:http://comics.ign.com/articles/624/624619p1.html
One story I'm interested in reading is speeding bullets, mainly because it's what if Superman's ship landed in Gotham and the Wayne's found him.
Oh and check out some of the new 52 books too and earth one, as I'm told they're good too.
