Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight (Volume 1) is a comic book anthology series featuring Batman. As an anthology, it features different creative teams for every story. Each story may run anywhere from one to five issues. It is the first comic title to star Batman after Detective Comics (Volume 1) and Batman (Volume 1).

The series takes inspiration from Batman: Year One and the stories are generally set in the early years of the character's career. It also does not follow any sort of chronological order as the stories could be set at any point in Batman's past. Generally, the stories are not specific about the time period they take place in and do not reference anything in the larger DC Universe history. It also, for the most part, eschewed appearances by other DC universe characters save for Batman, Alfred Pennyworth, Commissioner Gordon, and Batman's rogues gallery. Ostensibly, the stories are part of Batman's Post-Crisis continuity but are written in a way that avoids pigeonholing them into anything specific. Hardly any of the stories are referenced in other comics with perhaps the only exception is Venom which formed as the basis for the creation of the villain, Bane.

There are a few times the series deviated from its storytelling format with stories that are set in the present and crossing over with other Batman comic titles. One story is set in the future. Issues #116 to #126 participated in the massive storyline No Man's Land.

The title was discontinued with issue #214, in March 2007, to make way for a new Batman anthology series, Batman Confidential, which focuses on more personal events in Batman's life (first encounters, building of new technology etc.), rather than just early crime-fighting tales.
