    Batman is a far better book than Detective. King has talent for writing.

    Batman White Knight= real Batman
    Creature of the Night= real Detective
    Shadow/Batman= Batman and Robin

    Both main books are just a disappointment despite starting with a lot of promise. I would recommend those other books over Batman and Detective Comics.

    King's Batman is sometimes great, sometimes mediocre, and sometimes awful.

    Tynion's 'Tec is consistently awful. It's some of the most boring, schlocky, and derivative Batman writing I've read in a long time.

    I recall saying this to you before, but I think you articulated my own opinion better than I did, again. 'Tec's great for all those reasons (and more!).

    I've been enjoying both and find them to be distinctly different from each other, so it's hard to compare

    Detective has been a great team book, with Batman having the spotlight in his own book

    I've actually been trying to cut back on superhero books on my account at the local shop and I can't bring myself to axe either of these titles

    Yeah I feel the same. I think that I'm really enjoying the team aspect of Detective which makes me more excited to grab the newest issues of Detective than Batman these days.

    I gotta agree with this.

    Though on King, even when I'm initially maybe underwhelmed by a story, I'll return to it (maybe in trade) and like it more. I think King's big problem is decompression, it seems like he was two or three issues of story but always makes a 5 or 6 issue arc out of it. When he aims for a one-shot, he can amaze.
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge.

    Thats definitely one problem, the whole Superfrieds Arc felt like a giant filler. That sould have been a one shot or, at best one issue for the Superman story and one for Wonder Woman, but not 4.

    Batman, by far. Tom King has brought the freshest ideas to the character since Grant Morrison.

    Detective is good too.

    Put me in as liking both books, on an issue by issue basis, sometimes page after page.

    King to me is unpredictable, and the art has been awesome. So I stick with it.

    Tec I really like most of the characters and Tyrion has gotten better since his earlier days, how can he not? He was very poor the first half.

    I wouldn’t mind if both books got new teams, but it looks like the majority like Kings run, so that’s not happening anytime soon, unfortunately. There’s nothing innovative with what King is doing, so......I’ll love the art.

    Agreed. King captures the character really well and I've liked seeing how Bruce has grown in King's run. Detective has been good, though, especially with
    "The Fall of the Batmen" arc.
    Always Forward. Forward Always.

    Detective. I had to drop Batman because it's just unreadable. King is the most overhyped writer in comics.

    After many years of buying Tec, and the odd TPB from the other titles I have now swapped to Batman. Batman is more consistent and hasn't jumped the shark as much as Tec. The whole Batman universe(s) suffer from the fact that if Gotham was so bad everyone would move out, and if Batman was really like that he'd be on anti-depressants. But Tec was worse. I picked up a few Batman issues and couldn't believe the difference. Remains to be seen if its as formulaic as Tec. Not sure about Wonder Woman either.
