BEST BOOK EVER:

A Comic Show: Katie Couric's Vomit
BATMAN AND SON

GRANT MORRISON! The best Batman book to start at. You already know his origin, you saw it in the movie or on the cartoon. This is the beginning of now! This is where Bruce finds out he has a son, with Talia al Ghul! He's ten years old, raised in the league of assassins, has all his father's martial arts skills, has inherited his brilliant mind, but lacks his moral compass. This started Morrison's epic Batman run! Black Glove, RIP, Batman & Robin, Batman Inc. BATMAN BEGINS HERE!

RNDM AWSM:

A Comic Show: Katie Couric's Vomit
ATOMIC ROBO

BRIAN CLEVINGER! of 8bit theater and www.nerdyshow.com does action science heroes, in the vein of things like Venture Brothers! Robo fights all sorts of science villains, and solves them in the most scientific way possible. By punching them or shooting them. Quippy, fun, and full of awesome one-liners. Eisner nominated and somehow lost to My Chemical Romance, who's a band, I call bulls**t.
