    Both are same they both can't land a good ending on an arc. Death of the family went out with a wimper so did war of jokes and riddles.

I'm more of a writing-over-art man, so that doesn't give the edge to Snyder over King imo. King is doing a very different run in some aspects, but it has resonated with me and has been some of my favorite work done with Batman. Btw, are you checking out Metal? I'm reading the edition being released currently by ECC, so I'm a little behind, but I realised you're from Spain, so maybe you're reading it too
    Yes man, I buy the comics on ECC and now in Spain they have already edited war of jokes and riddles, and these days I've been doing a comparision of Snyder and King reading his respective comics and I think that Snyder is better, is more entertaing and personally I like the monologues that batman has and his joker for me is on of the best versions, the most psycopath of all and unstoppable. Of Snyder run I have to read superheavy, is the only one that I haven't read but I think it will like me because I like frak things like the armor suit that uses gordon. What do you prefer?

    Snyder seems to always aim big in plots, usually dragging out the Joker or the Owls. Plus he's still trying to push Duke Thomas, who like fetch isn't going to happen under these circumstances. Plus King doesn't have Bat-mech to deal with.

    I do prefer King's character based approach over Snyder's plot-based approach.

    I think Snyder is better at his-continuity epic and lore-building while King is better for out-of-continuity character dissection that pays homage to every incarnation... when he likes the character, that is.

    I just want someone to tell Snyder that not every story needs to be an epic and to dole out his original characters in small but regular appearances rather than placing them front and center during an event meant for other characters like the Robins.

    As for King, I just want to remind him that Catwoman is still a fugitive. Unless I'm missing something.

    Wait, I didn't answer the question.

    It's hard. Snyder comes really close, but he writes Bruce too young and prioritizes his original characters compared to preexisting Batfamily. King writes what he likes and when he does focus on them it's good, but I have to ignore the rest.

    I guess since there is a continuity... and I don't think Rebirth has one... but if there is... I prefer Snyder. He's not ideal though.

    My ideal Batman writers were the ones who wrote There is No Hope in Crime Alley, The Autobiography of Bruce Wayne, Joker's Five Ways Revenge and To Kill a Legend. I don't know who they are. Wait... *browse* ...Dennis O'Neil and Alan Brennert.

    Snyder is good writer who is very good a crafting big ideas, it too bad the execution is usually lacking and every ending is lack luckster. King is an excellent writer but he seems to get fixated on certain aspects so that the story as a whole often suffers. Overall I'd say King is better, Snyder is responsible for Gordon robo-bat so he looses major points.

    I feel like some of you forget some of Snyders best issues like his small stories such as batman 44 or some of the one shots in all star batman

    I haven´t read All Star, but #44 was a (damn good) collaboration with Azzarello, who likes to do "smaller" stories with Batman

    King's approach has been character based alright... I just can't figure out which characters.

    'Cuz his "Bat & Cat" usually don't read like the ones I've been following for 20+ years...

    I'll take Snyder's Batman over King's Batman any day of the week.

    Granted, Snyder's run was hit (Court Of Owls, Endgame, Zero Year) or miss (Death In The Family, Super Heavy) with me. But King's current run caused me to stop collecting Batman for the very first time because it was that bad to me. I look forward to the day King's off the Batman book entirely.

    The only thing I didn't like of Snyder's run was Super Heavy. It was really bad. Death in the Family was good and everything else was great.
