The list of new Batman comics is growing every day, between the comic books, digital-first releases, original graphic novels, and collected editions.

The 'Infinite Frontier' era is here, with a tight-knight Bat-family of titles returning - spearheaded by James Tynion IV and Jorge Jimenez on the main Batman title, and writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Dan Mora on the ongoing Detective Comics title

In addition to those two main ongoing Batman titles, there's also several limited series underway or on the horizon, including Garth Ennis and Liam Sharp's Batman: Reptilian, Tom Taylor and Andy Kubert's Batman: The Detective, and the third volume of Batman: Earth One by Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

On the horizon (but as yet undated) are also Sean Gordon Murphy's Batman: Beyond the White Knight, Marc Silvestri's Batman/Joker: Deadly Duo, and another chapter in Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns saga.

And that's not to mention the numerous collections coming out at almost a weekly clip, putting recent arcs all in one place and, in some cases, bringing back in print storylines that haven't been available for years.

For more on all of DC's offerings, check out its monthly schedule with the company's various monthly solicitations:
