In this blog post I will provide thorough, downloadable lists for collecting physical Batman 66 comics.
Many collections can be organised in different ways, I organise my Batman 66 Comics Collection into four Folders.
To clarify what this means before I continue;
Omnibus: This folder is meant to contain all the comics that comprise the “Batman 66 Omnibus” hardcover collection and the variant covers of those comics
Crossovers: This folder is meant to contain all the comics in the crossovers where Batman 66 is the main focus, and the variant covers of those comics.
Archie: This folder is meant to contain all the comics in the Archie Meets Batman 66 Mini Series and the variant covers of those comics
Other: This folder is meant to contain all the comics that aren’t strictly from the Batman 66 comics run but I consider them to be connected
Within each of these downloadable lists, I have broken them down in the ways listed below;
- List of comics (with explanations/descriptions if needed)
- Collections of comics in that list along with descriptions/explanations (e.g. omnibuses and graphic novels)
- Notes (interesting tidbits relating to the comics in the list and/or the collections of those comics)
I have also provided a simplified version of each list without any explanations included and check boxes provided so that they can be simply checked off as acquired
At the bottom of all lists I have included a simple guide to help determine the difference between a regular cover and a variant cover, and the difference between a 1st printing and a 2nd printing

22nd May 2020
- I have added the 8 J Scott Campbell Covers for Catwoman 80th Anniversary 100-Page Super Spectacular to the Folder Four and Master Lists
11th April 2020
- I have changed all upcoming release dates on all Folder One (Explanation), Folder Four (Explanation) and Master List (Explanation) lists to read “Not Yet Released” given that I use this lists to refer to the physical releases of these comics and given the current situation regarding physical comics. Referring to items as “Not yet released” from here on out also avoids me having to go in and change release dates if releases continue to be pushed back.
