The Dark Knight sets a record
Did you read comic books as a kid? Which ones? If this is one of your guilty pleasures, or if you have kids in your life, you'll want to snap up The Best American Comics 2011 and/or The TOON Treasury of Classic Children's Comics. We also have an entire subcategory of fiction listings devoted to the vibrant new genre of graphic novels.
Academics are even getting into Batman lore: witness the Johns Hopkins U Press book Becoming Batman: The Possibility of a Superhero. (Does this guy not believe in suspension of disbelief?)
In the realm of DVDs I highly recommend The Batman—Training for Power, which is Season 1, Vol. 1 of the animated tv show.
