Template:Use dmy dates DC Comics - The Legend of Batman[1] is a fortnightly partwork magazine published by Eaglemoss Collections and DC Comics. The series is a collection of special edition hardback graphic novels, that tells Batman’s life story from beginning to end. The series follows the success of the DC Comics Graphic Novel Collection, which itself began in 2015 with the Batman story Hush.

The collection started in countries like France,[2] but with a different order and contents. The debut issue, Batman: Zero Year Part 1, was released in the UK on 27 December 2017 at the special price of £2.99, before gradually rising to £9.99 per issue. 60 issues of the partwork were planned but have been already extended to at least 80 issues (see list below).
