    Hello and welcome.

    If you're a new Batman reader don't start with "Batman who laughs".
    I didn't hear much good about this story and it is a follow up to the event "Dark Knight: Metal" that you should read first.

    If you don't find the book you want on Amazon, it means it doesn't exist or it isn't published anymore.
    All the comics that don't exist in French or in an edition that pleases me, I get the US version by Amazon.
    Also, if you don't mind reading on a screen, you can get the online DC subsciption.


    And if you're a newbie on Batman, here is my usual speach:

    In the 30's were publish 2 comics (among others): Action Comics and Detective Comics. Both were from the same publisher.
    In 1938 came a story about Superman in Action Comics. In 1939 came a story about Batman in Detective Comics.

    Their popularity were so that those heroes re-appeared again and again in those comics. Until they became the main and sole heroes of these comic books.
    They were so popular that they even got their own comic book. Without leaving Action Comics and Detective Comics.

    Batman and Superman were so revolutionnary at the time and had such an inpact on comics that 1938 is considered the start of the Golden age of Comics.
    They so so popular that the publisher even changed his name to "DC Comics" - "DC" standing for Detective Comics.

    Comics became more and more popular, especially amongs the young ones.
    The perfect american society of the 50's worried for their children and the bad influence those comics might have on them.
    A Comics Code Authority was created and they came up with the Comics Code.

    Around 1956, all comics had to have the Comics Code Authority Approuved seal.
    This forced some the editors to rework their line of comics and soften everything.
    1956 is considered the start of the Silver Age of Comics.

    On DC's side, all their heroes had a lifting in the 50's.
    Some heroes completly changed surch as Falsh or Green Lantern.

    In the 70's, society had evolved a bit and the Comics Code had to be adjusted.
    Stories started to become darker. The 70's is the begining of the Bronze age of Comics.

    The Comics Code was totally abandonned in the mid 80's. This is the start of the Modern age of comics.
    DC used this disapearance, as an opportunity to clarify all its univers with their 1st big event: Crisis On Inifinit Earths (COIE) in 1985.


    So the moder age is ongoing since 1958. But to revive their universes, publisher so often publish "events".
    Those events imply all their heroes. And sometimes leading to reboots for some or all heroes.

    Here are DC's main events:

    1985 - Crisis on Infinit Earths (COIE) - start of the Modern Age
    1986 - DC: Legends - follow up to COEI and modern creation of the Justice League and Suicid Squad
    1994 - Zero Hour: Crisis in Time
    2004 - Identity Crisis - somewhat a prequel to Infinit Crisis
    2005 - Infinite Crisis
    ???? - 52 - tells about the gap year after Infinit Crisis (but good to read after Final Crisis)
    2008 - 7 Solders + Final Crisis - must have read Infinit Crisis Before
