Here is the Top Batman Graphic Novels To Read During a Hurricane.

So you’ve been prepared for the hurricane. You’ve got your water, food, batteries, etc. You’ve made sure that you have all the essentials.

One thing I like to prepare for when hurricanes are about to hit is my mind. If the power goes out after a few hours, you’re going to get pretty bored.

No power means no TV, no phone, and no video games. Scary. I know. Playing board games with your family will be fun for a while, but even that will get boring after a while.

Batman to the Rescue:

That’s why I love comic books. They’re a great way to entertain your mind and no recharge is needed. So when it comes to comic books, there’s nothing better than graphic novels. And when it comes to graphic novels, there’s nothing better than Batman.

There are so many great Batman stories I can’t possibly list them all. But there are some standout Stories amongst the crowd. So if you’re like me and you need a little escape from the drama, a great Batman story is a good start.

So here are some of the top Batman graphic novels to read during a hurricane.

  • Batman: The Dark Knight Returns

    This comic was created in 1986 by legendary Frank Miller. This comic is so good it’s still a top seller today.  This book is about Batman, who after a ten-year retirement, must confront some of his biggest enemies and fight for the soul of Gotham City. This is the book that changed Batman and comic books, forever. MUST READ.

  • Batman: Hush

    “Hush,” is one of the best-selling Batman stories ever. It’s a mind-blowing mystery that will shock you with its twists and turns. Hush also features some of the best art in comics books to date by DC Comics Legend, Jim Lee.  Don’t just watch the animated film version of Hush. Read the book. This comic is worth your time.

  • Batman: The Killing Joke

     I never thought that I could feel sympathy for the Joker until I read ‘The Killing Joke.’ This story was the first time the origin of the Joker was truly explored. The story poses the question, what was the man like before he was turned into the maniacal villain we all know? He wasn’t always wicked. Right? If you ask the ‘Crown Prince of Crime’ he would say, “If I’m going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!” 

    This is the greatest Joker Story Ever Told.

  • Batman: Year One

     Batman: Year One is the comic that inspired the Modern Day Batman movies. There would never have been Batman Begins without Batman: Year One.
    The storyline follows James Gordon’s life as a recently transferred Gotham police detective and Batman’s first year as a crime-fighter, ultimately leading to their first interaction and their eventual partnership against Gotham’s criminal underworld.
  • The Batman Who Laughs

    Could there ever be a Batman villain more sinister than the Joker? The answer is yes. His name? The Batman Who Laughs. The twisted highbred of Batman and the joker himself is born from the multi-verse and is hell-bent on destroying everyone and everything in his way
