DCComicsfilter - Old DC UK annual, what happened next?

When I was a kid in the mid-80s, I had a DC annual that was printed in the UK. Because of the unique way these things were cobbled together (they'd reprint whatever they could get with little regard to continuity), I have no idea how the story ended. For some reason, this is currently doing my head in, so can anyone point me in the right direction? Barely remembered details inside... [more inside]

Who is the most powerful enemy that Batman has defeated?

Who is the most powerful enemy that Batman has defeated? How did he do it? I am mostly interested in single enemies, but if Batman's most powerful defeated enemy is something like a corporation or government, I would love to know that too. Comics, movies and TV series welcome.

Thoughtful, emotionally real Batman stories for a newcomer

Help me to find Batman trade paperbacks for my housemate to read! I really, really want her to appreciate how awesome Batman can be at its best. She's not read many comics before, but just read and enjoyed 'Bruce Wayne: Murderer'. She liked the focus on moral reasoning and personal dilemmas, as well as the fact that nothing supernatural happened. I don't think she'll like Frank Miller. [more inside]

Where is this batman panel from?

There's a Batman panel I have a clear, but possibly flawed memory of.. where is it from?

Likely written well after, but taking place shortly after The Killing Joke, I have a clear image of Barbara Gordon, in the hospital, talking to Batman (or possibly Bruce Wayne), realizing she'll never walk again, never be batgirl again, that this incident has derailed her entire planned existence, and essentially saying something to the effect of "I've heard when the police pulled up, you were standing there laughing with the man who did this to me, and I wanted to know.. were you laughing at me?" Where is this from? It can't just be in my head, can it?

Batman Storylines

Next week David Lapham, one of my favorite comics writers, begins a year-long run on Detective Comics. I haven't read anything Batman related since "Hush", so is there any site I can go to for general synopses of the storylines since then, so I'm not completely lost when I pick up issue #800?
