As far as comic books, graphic novels, or animated series.

Assuming all that I know of Batman are the movies that were released in theaters. Where should I start? Or what is a must see/read?

Thanks.

I'd start with the animated movies.

Batman: Year One
Batman: Under the Red Hood
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2 Parts)

Then tackle the TV shows

Batman: The Animated Series
Baman Beyond

Dark Knight Returns
Killing Joke
Long Halloween
Hush
Year One

Are all necessities IMO. Also though explore online there are torrents of all the books dating back to the 40s, it's fun to read the transformation of the character over the years

Also checkout the most recent run in trade paperback.
