This is the second volume, and it continues the tradition of Batman stories by different authors and illustrators.
I personally liked the first volume better because the focused more on Batman's psychology. Volume two just had Batman stories. I also appreciated the 1st volume writing about the author and illustrator of each story, and missed this detail in volume 2. My favorite of the 2nd volume is the first story, about the Joker before he was the Joker.
I recommend both books, and have yet to read the 3rd volume.

Alright. Like any anthology, some stories are strong, some are not. Frankly, I'm amazed by the number of stories that follow the same conventions (opening with a news report, having Batman pose as a hobo or some other unexpected character). One more volume to go, which, frankly I expect will be more of the same.

Batman: Black & White, Volume 2 continued the high quality of story and art established by its predecessor. Behind a perfect Mike Mignolia cover lie the talents of Harlan Ellison, John Byrne, Howard Chaykin, Steve Rude, Kyle Baker and others. While I enjoyed the entire volume, “Broken Nose” by Paul Pope, “Case Study” by Paul Dini and Alex Ross, and “The Riddle” by Walt Simonson and John Paul Leon really stood out.
