Summary

The Bat. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. The World's Greatest Detective. Whatever you call him, Bruce "The Batman" Wayne remains one of the most iconic comic book characters of all time. And to mark Batman's 80th anniversary, this volume encapsulates the most memorable moments that have left fans stunned, in awe, or heartbroken since his inception.

While Gotham is perpetually in peril, the world in general is better with the Bat in it. Whether it's his sharp wit, his extravagant mansion, or extensive back catalog of vehicles and gadgets. From creator Bob Kane to Tom King's 100-issue run that started in 2018, Batman has morphed with the times.

There's so much to love about Batman and the characters that surrounds them. His villains, his Robins, his love interests…they all find him as irresistible as the general public. The moral ambiguity that makes him one of the most relatable characters in DC's extended universe. Part of "The Big Three" and host to a slew of orphaned Robins, Batman is a pivotal part to many characters in the extended DCU.

Batman has had many writers, his cowl has been worn by a plethora of different actors, and while many people have a favorite Batman, there's no doubt that he's the fan favorite. 

The 100 Greatest Moments of DC Comics series collects the greatest, most memorable moments of your favorite comic book characters in gorgeous volumes that highlight both individual characters and groups. From superheroes to super-villains, each book in this collection covers some of the greatest DC comic book characters. No comic book nerd's collection is complete without the 100 Greatest Moments of DC Comics books of their favorite characters.
