In 2011, DC Comics began publishing a series of trade paperbacks under the banner heading, ‘Tales of the Batman’. The books were standalone titles which focused on stories from key creators.  

Each volume of Tales of the Batman contained a collection of stories from a specific creator, including Gene Colan, Marv Wolfman, and Archie Goodwin. The stories were taken from across the decades and showcase the different incarnations of the Batman over the years.

If you are collecting the Tales of the Batman books, or you are considering collecting them, then you will need a list of all the titles that have been published to date – and that’s where this post can come in handy.
