    Broadly I agree with this list.

    Bit of a nitpick, but I'm not sure I'd regard DKR as a Post-Crisis Batman story.

    I just think it adds insight into how Batman thinks. I just thought it was a great Batman story.

    In my mind, the "Post-Crisis" DCU is 1986-2011, so anything from New 52 and beyond is disqualified.

    Well, if you think that Batman thinks like that then it does give insight into why he thinks that way and how what he thinks leads him to think up those things; but I don't think Batman thinks like that and so I don't think it's a good story; everyone's free to think how they think and if they think that's the Batman then I think they might like to think that Batman thinks like that and thinks up those things; I think it's stupid.
