The Best Batman Comics

List Criteria: Comic books and serials depicting the Batman universe

So many great Batman stories out there. A dark, brooding, completely kick-ass superhero in a brutal, festering city is ripe ground for good writing. Any list like this is going to be pretty subjective, but I've opened it up for everyone to add anything they see is missing here. I've started with my personal favorites, but everyone's gotta start somewhere! Vote on what you think are the best batman comic series and add what's (in your opinion) missing.
