Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight , differs from other Batman titles in that it has constantly rotating creative teams, and the stories are not necessarily part of the current events of the other Batman comics. Initially the title was promoted as running only stand alone self-contained five issue stories of graphic novel quality.
However, after issue 20, stories of different lengths started to appear. While some stories have tied in with the other titles, generally this has not been the case. Most of the stories are set in the early years of Batman's career, though a few have been set in the present and even the future.Stories set at the beginning of Batman's career are referred to as taking place during Year One, meaning Bruce Wayne's first year (or first several years in some cases) of crime fighting as Batman. The title had been initially promoted as only doing stories from before Robin, but Dick Grayson, the first Robin, did appear in issue 23, though he was still a circus performer. The series, for the most part, eschewed appearances by other DC universe characters save for Batman, Alfred Pennyworth, Commissioner Gordon, and Batman's rogues gallery. Some of the creative talent who have worked on the series include: Chuck Dixon, Alan Grant, Paul Jenkins, Sean Phillips, Archie Goodwin, Dennis O'Neil, Dwayne McDuffie, Alex Ross, Mike W.
Barr, Garth Ennis, James Robinson, Doug Moench, Gil Kane, Jimmy Palmiotti, Tim Sale, Russ Heath, J. DeMatteis, Grant Morrison, Mike Mignola, Bill Willingham, Matt Wagner, Warren Ellis, Tim Bradstreet, John McCrea, Mark Millar and Marshall Rogers.
